Woo-hoo!  Got home last night and my package from beccas_song was here!  I feel so overwhelmed because the more I pulled out, the more there was still in the box!  I was so surprised by the variety of items, and the scones were fabulous (we had them for breakfast)!  Thanks so much!  I love every single item!  Here are the pictures:

charm bracelet with all of the women (and men standing by!)


lemon scones (yummy!)


tote bag with the Dowager Countess and her quote "What is a weekend?"  (love that line!)


Keep Calm and Blame Daisy frame


THREE Teesha Moore patches with appropriate quotes! 
(can't WAIT to decide how to use these!)


And last, but not least - a paper mache' teacup with Edwardian decorations
(I've never seen anything like this- so AMAZING!)

I'm so glad you liked everything and it all came in one piece. Looking at the bracelet just now I realized there is no Dowager Countess on it! How did I forget her???

What a beautifully awseome package dmarie  Cheesy I love the bracelet the pictures are so neat and the blame daisy frame is gorgeous - the frame is so Victorian. No Downton Abbey swap is complete without a witty comment from the Dowager - if I was you I would be taking that tote everywhere. The Teesha Moore patches are great as well and let's not forget a teacup made out of papier mache - positively elegant!! Beccas_song you have set a very high standard for the rest of us  Grin I now have major swap anxiety  Undecided

I received a beautiful package from dmarie360! I got TWO amazing pillows! They are so well done and thoughtful. They are in my favorite color, teal, featuring my favorite character, Lady Mary, and in my favorite style, Teesha Moore! And I adore decorative throw pillows. I don't think I mentioned that anywhere, how did she know??? Smiley On to the pictures:

The whole pillow:


Details!

the family tree


"You should learn to forget what I say. I know I do." The top picture in the frame is of Highclere Castle, aka Downton Abbey.


I love the phone!


a servants bell and "Kepp calm and act like Lady Mary"

I just love it!!! How did you print on the fabric? I'm so curious!

And if that's not enough, she did a filet crochet piece and made another pillow with it! Can you see Downton Abbey? I love it!

And finally, a pic of the backs. I love the fabrics you chose! I wish I had so much teal in my collection!


Thank you so much again Donna! I am blown away by the pillows. My husband even likes them, and he's not a DA fan! I had so much fin swapping with you!

As far as the printing on the fabric.... The family tree and Downton Abbey was printed on the fabric itself with my inkjet printer.  The telephone was freezer paper stenciled.  The quote and the picture of Lady Mary were iron-on transfers.  So many different ways to do things, aren't there?
