The birdhouse was an idea from a member of the last swap, and I thought it was a great idea, so when the opportunity presented itself I had to do it.
You do realise that little clog/wooden shoe was half of a pair right?

Well, I didn't think you could give up something that cute without having one for yourself. You'd have to be superhuman to do that.  Wink Cheesy

I can't resist the urge to make a pun any longer.......doesn't look like there's mushroom inside, hehe!
Those tiny cupcake charms are adorable!

sooo.....wickedmouse is just the most awesomely awesome person in the world!  i got an amazing package today in the mail after a harrowing, life-threatening ride to the post office (i, the genius that i am, decided to let my nephew, armed with his brand-new shiny driver's permit, drive me to the post office, 8 miles from my house.  most terrifying 8 miles of my life) the package was totally worth near-death experiences!

Onward to far too many pictures of amazingness!
Everything that was in the mailing box.



That little Zales box had the most adorable fairy house inside.  I'm going to run strings through the holes and hang it from my rearview mirror



Here's the inside of the jars which were filled with wonderful things



Here is the really beautiful recipe box "jar".  She read my mind =)  now i have a box to organize my scraps of recipes and a binder from a previous swap with print outs!  she even included 3 packs of index cards (see picture above)



Inside the box.  Yes, that pouch says blood.  it's a blood energy drink.  kinda cool.  i'm tempted to keep it for halloween but i may break it out for the zombie masquerade i'm going to sometime this month.



Here are the insides of the "jar"



Close-up of the beautiful necklaces she made me



Close-ups on my favoritest things in the box.  the items are sitting on the HOT PINK BUBBLEWRAP she packed the mailing box with. (yes, i am very very very excited about the hot pink bubblewrap.)

Starting from the top left and going clockwise.  The really awesome birdie napkin rings that need to be reattached to the rings. seriously beautiful and the pictures dont do them justice.  i plan on using two of them at my wedding reception. they are sitting on the doggie biscuit kit.  then the pretty mirror and pouch it was in.  the black blob is a rose ring, under it is a silver bell, the bee pendant, and a "crystal" skully.  Next to that is a snake thingy that has an awesome snake on it.  a rose charm thing, and last but not least, my fairy house.  =)



Who was spoiled? *points to self* this girl!  =)

Thank you so much, Chris, for the amazing package.  made the ride to the post office completely worth it.  And just for the record, I drove home.  Kevin is not driving me anywhere ever again unless he gets some practice in!

thank you, freestyle, for hosting a awesome swap!

I had a fantastic surprise waiting for me after work.

The package was teasing me!



I was speechless by the job icebyrd67 did with the "jar". It is a working gumball machine with beautiful vintage-looking fairy tale illustrations all around the base (gum included). The bowl turns and dispenses a gumball!

Each plastic container was filled with whimsical goodness. I love each and every thing. This has got to be the best fun a crafter can have!





Awesome!



There were handmade buttons and TONS of tiny cuteness. She did an outstanding job with a set of grey fabric flowers that I will soon be attaching to a purse. A tiny teddy bear and a little baby grenade.


Still........the gumball machine still has me feeling pretty special. 

Thank you so much.

This was a great swap.
