Ooh, I see some Agatha Christies! I bought three today at my favourite used book store - 2 in English and 1 in French. I THINK I read French well enough, but I've never read something novel-length in French, so it's a bit of a test. 

I love that matching handwriting analysis book and "handwritten" wallet, and I was delighted with that Binet bag (*also was a psych major*), and that fabric flower is so pretty!

I feel like such a psych nerd...I was squealing like a little girl about the bag and then the wallet, book, and lining of the bag (same handwritting pattern) combo and my guy was like..."is that Colonel Sanders?" Jerk. Rosyposie was a great partner.

I'm glad you liked everything, Rose! I had a blast making it all!

I recieved, too! And I love everything!

First we have the paper bookmarks, and 2 corner holder bookmarks:

2 are Slytherin themed, 1 is potion bottles, and one is a cute little hippo!

And the other side of the corner markers.

I love the saying on the hippo one.

And there was also a felt Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein bookmarkers and a cute little tetris bracelet!!


Then there were a couple of cute little extras. A few witchy bits and a snake sticker:


Then there is a bottle of Veritaserum necklace (straight off my wist!) and a cute little Slytherin pouch:


And last but not least, a Slytherin coffee cozy that fits my cup perfectly!


Oh man...I feel like I'm forgetting something...OH yeah! The books! She sent me Brother Odd by Dean Koontz (the third book in the Odd Thomas set. And my favorite one...) and Dead to the World and Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris (the 4th and 5th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series)


Thank you so much Rose! I love everything!!!

I thought since there has been so much chatter about Agatha Christie, I would share my secret love of her:



I read Murder on the Orient Express, got hooked, and the books were always so cheap and available at thrift stores, that I just bought whatever ones I didn't have. 

In regard to the swapped items, I think the mini sylvia plath quilt is really beautiful, and the Luna Lovegood scarf as well... This has been such a lovely swap, and a great way to find some books to add to my "to read" list.

I missed out on some nice compliments. Thanks everyone! In swap related news, I just gave out feedback to everyone I believe it was due for. If I missed you, let me know. Smiley

And some comments:
Luna Lovegood's scarf is not just a cool tie-in, it's also very pretty!

Those Frankenstein and Bride bookmarks are so neat! I wouldn't have ever guess to make them. And yay, Dead to the World is one of my favourite books. I love the Sookie series
