Titaniumhip sent me goodies!

A t-shirt from the animator's convention in Ontario, a fun hoop and a postcard to add to my collection (I love postcards!)
Thanks so much, titaniumhip!

I received from that1girl on Friday.  She sent goodies from her home in Michigan to me in California.

Local Attractions Swap: Shirt by April in Autumn, on Flickr
First, the shirt.  It's an M (for Michigan) made out of Legos.  On the back it says Michigan Lego and it fits great.  I couldn't find any remotely interesting shirts at the thrift stores by me for this swap so I think this is a pretty cool find.

Other goodies (the beer growlers are all ours though).  A water bottle, eraser, some knitting patterns, chocolate and (not pictured) potato chips that I ate for breakfast on Sunday.
There are two really cool vintage maps in the back.  One is Michigan and the other is Ohio (where I lived most of my life).  It was really cool seeing what existed in the 1950s and what didn't.  My parents' street wasn't built yet and on the inset US map, we found out that Interstate 5 which travels from Mexico up to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington wasn't in existence, just the 99.  Anyway, just a history lesson from old maps.

An amigurumi robin, which is the state bird of Michigan and crocheted apple blossom (state flower) hair clips.

Thanks that1girl!
