Wowsers!!! My parcel arrived from Miss Barbara today ans I was super spoiled. I Love everything!!! Grad a snack because this is going to take a while!!!!!!!
Miss Barbara went to a lot of trouble stalking me and she did an excellent job. She wanted to make me items that I had not already received and she was spot on!!!!!
Here is a photo of all my loot layed out, wrapped and screaming open me open me!!!!!
1st up!!! This super cute crocheted pencil scarf, I have been wanting one for ever and it is perfect. She even used sparkle
gold thread for the metal part that holds the eraser on. How cool is this. Also a matching bookmark, I so love to read.
Next is some school bus related things! A red folder, a picture brag book shaped like a bus and a chalkboard bus. These are going to work with me to decorate my office! I work in the transportation Department of a school district. Perfect!!!
Miss Barbara knows I love frogs, dragonflies and fish! She sent this cute frog with ribbon attached to hang up, a frog key chain flash light that ribbits when the light come on ( So me) A cute paper mache painted frog and a lime green pencil pouch stitched with hot pink, 2 of my favorite colors! I think this will be taken to work as well I have the perfect spot. i will try and add a picture after I get them displayed in my office!! I am so excited and we are just starting!!! I was truly spoiled!!!!
Now Miss Barbara did not miss anything! Next up is a cute dragon fly wooden wall hanging that goes with the frog! A art card with a dragonfly on it (Miss Barbara tells me she cut the dragonfly from a card another swap partner (amnesia) sent her since she knew I would love it, and I do), some sewing erasers, a new id lanyard with a sea turtle and in turquoise, one of my favorite colors!
2 lime green ( this is such a pretty color) potholders or hot pads! I also got a fabric covered journal that is the perfect size. The fabric is awesome, it has frogs, turtles, bees, dragonflies, crickets, salamanders and even a cute metal frog with wiggly eyes attached to the front and it ties with lime green ribbon!! turquoise background with white dots, this fabric is way cute and it's mine!!!
Time to go grab another snack because there is still lot's more!!!!
I am not sure if Miss Barbara even knows what this next item means to me! It is a insulated lunch tote. It is fuchsia in color and very unique in its zipper opening I hope the pictures capture it. I lost my Senegal parrot back in March and the motif on the front is swirls of paisley. Again the colors are perfect, with the lime green, turquoise and aqua! The insulated cup fits perfect in another item that is on it's way. It has laminated fish stickers on the inside. Not the best photo. And a cute ceramic butterfly topped spoon perfect for hot tea!!!
Now as if this was not enough what was on the inside is truly artistic and amazing.
It has a cute container, 4 crocheted edged reusable napkins, a utensil roll that can also be used as a small placemat. Ya see Miss Barbara knows that I seldom take a lunch, work long hours and I swear if she was closer she would probably come over and pack it daily. This is going to be so easy now. See the insulated mug inside the crocheted cozy, this set rocks!!!!
She even included silverware!!!!!!!!!!
And she used the same adorable fabric!
The back showing off Miss Barbara's crochet skills!
and a very happy me with the insulated mug holder/complete with mug and the lunch set!
And as this was not enough, she also sent me some flattened souviner pennies ( I collect these), a post card, brochure of a place she has visited and a cute dragonfly card!!!!
My partner rocked, and so did what she made me!!!!. I love everything and this was truly an amazing package!!!
She does extremely fantastic crochet! so jealous here!
I also was sent a cute frog button, he kept hopping around and I could not get a picture of him!!!
