Check out the matchbox I received from Fosca.  She picked up on my love of jellyfish and made this cutey.


I risked a stinging to get my hands on the matchbox he was guarding.  Fosca decorated the box with really pretty paper and a lovely hand-painted keyring.


Look how tightly this matchbox was packed.  These things will never fit in the box again.  I have to confess that I opened the box upside down - luckily the goodies were crammed in so tight that barely anything fell out.


Fosca sent me 7 types of ribbon!  One was wrapped around the matchbox and the other six are pictured here.


I love the little stamped pieces of paper.  Thankyou, Fosca!

Cute jelly.  I had not seen one with eyelash yarn before.  It makes it look like it glows

I finally got up the courage to wade through snow out to my mailbox today, and it as totally worth it! Behold the awesomeness from Wulf:

Paper squid clinging to the matchbox (the wooden slats are individually cut out!):



Pre-unpacking (awesome loading job):



The loot!



A mildly itemized list:
Jewelry bits, including chain, tiny pendants, little sparkly beads, delicate metal flower, beautiful white backed kite-shaped pendant, wee Canada pin
Little beads, including semi-precious stone chips, bone bead, seed beads on jump rings, little flower spacers
Metal bits, including little gears, screws, an old fuse (love that!)
White plastic skull and crossbones, and puffy skully sticker
Awesome mushroom stamp
Teensy acorn!
Flying monkey bottlecap
Bitty jingle bells

Wulf says there isn't a theme, but I'm fairly certain the theme is "things tlk loves" Grin

A few of my favorites, and a close up on one of the beads that has the TINIEST mudflap girl EVER on it:



Thank you so much Wulf! I loved pawing through my little treasures. <3

You're right - that was the theme! The only things I was pretty sure about were the stamp and the skull and crossbones. The rest was guessing and "I need something this big"!

Glad you liked it, and glad the squid arrived safely. I thought the gatorboard packing case would do it, but you never know.
