My partner Cronopita and I swapped today!

We decided on a "one tiny thing" kind of swap since we're both very short of time. The theme of the swap was "breakfast in Tiffany's", we're both avid fans of that movie and of Audrey Hepburn.

here is what I got!


it's a Tiffany's box!

and what's inside?




a necklace, and a lovely Audrey needle felted doll. so amazing!! Cheesy

thanks so much Cronopita, I loved swapping with you!
and thanks to Goldfishpollywog for organizing, too!

And here's what I got from sweet_aya. Since we were giving the swap a Breakfast at Tiffany's vibe, she gave me this beautiful bracelet which is perfect for going to parties and dancing to Henry Mancini's music.





I don't know how she came up with such wonders and that's what I love about sharing: the surprise of unexpected gifts.

Thanks so much Goldfishpollywog for organizing, it's been a lovely first swap experience.

What a cute little Audrey! Is the character's name Holly Golightly?  Beautiful job on the jewelry, both of you. It was my pleasure to organize for y'all.

***warning and apology to thos with older computers*** very picture heavy!

I received my package from LanaC and MedusaLisa today. OMG do I feel completely and totally spoiled!!!!!! I'm going to post pictures of everything together since they sent together and I sent to them together. Hope no one minds.

I barely controlled myself when the box came. What I really wanted to do was act like a 5 year old at Christmas and start ripping into everything but instead I dutifully went to get my camera.


Upon opening the box I found some absolutely beautiful fabric. I haven't decided what to make from it yet but it will definitely be something to go along with the medieval costuming I do.


Want to see what my daughter grabbed as as soon as she saw it?


Goodies!!!!


Pagan books for hubby and me Smiley


For munchkin and hubby:


For mom (who is the one that taught me to crochet):


Extras- stickers, adorable erasers, glow sticks and glow wand Smiley, silly string (which is already being used), water balloons an some awesome Halloween labels:


Presents!!!!


I started opening with the smallest and worked my way big Smiley First up is an adorable voodoo doll wrist pin cushion. I can't even begin to say how useful this is going to be!


Next is a lovely necklace. The white-looking beads are actually marbled.


A belly dancer! I am a dancer myself and of course thought she was adorable. She is on a spring so she actually does some shimmying too Smiley


Knit fingerless gloves! I've been trying to get my mom to crochet a pair for me for about 2 months now and now I have some! They are in a purple variegated boa with a strand of worsted for weight. If one of your craft stores out there still sells the boa I'm going to have to get you to go shopping for me cause nowhere her sells it anymore.


Is it dorky of me that I love the fact that they came on hands with painted fingernails?


Now an awesome wooden lunch box style box. We're planning on moving to SoCal next year, which is where the inspiration for the pictures came from I think Smiley I'm planning on using this as a sort of portable travel altar. I'll be putting money toward the trip and travel plans and wishes inside.


But wait! Looks like the money and wishes are going to have some company! (and lots of awesome sparklies)


And a beautiful tissue box cover. I am very much a moon/stars person and I love the pictures (not to mention the sparklies)!


And the other side:


A beautiful divination box inspired by something on my wist from the first gypsy swap.


It wasn't empty! Some Lakota divination cards that hubby is trying to steal, a planchette to go with the Ouija board on the top, a set of witches dice and instructions on how to use them and divinatory meanings for the symbols.


Another gorgeous chest, which was very heavy upon unwrapping.


Because it wasn't empty either!


Inside were bath salts and matching powders in Bewitching Bergamot, Captivating Chamomile and Vexing Vanilla (and Lavender).


I couldn't get a good picture of the labels. I tried about 15 times Sad

I can't even begin to thank you both enough!!!!!!!! I absolutely adore everything!!!!!!!!!

Wow! That box was really packed for everyone!  Love the gloves, I've been wanting to make myself some, but when do we ever really make something for ourselves and keep it.
