I received from Sabertooth Pixie a couple days ago but have ben forced to work overtime the past couple days so I'm sorry for the delay in posting pics!

She sent a lovely package! A refurbished book with nice parchment paper! She adorned it with a gold triquetra! She made some nice recipe cards and decorated with some lovely drawings! A really nice pen with different colored ink cartridges! Another pen and a gold pen! Some crystals as well! A large quartz point, a piece of carnelian, rose quartz and amethyst! And a crystaled "M" sticker!



The spine of the book has some foreign writing..German perhaps? I love this, adds to the "mystery"!



ANd inside she illastrated the crystals she sent and wrote some useful info about them!


Thanks so much Sabertooth Pixie! Awesome package!!!! I can't wait for you to see yours!! Thanks for being an awesome partner!

Wow, that would have taken ages to make! Smiley I think when your grandchildren see that in many years to come they will keep it as a treasured item. I love the gold on the spine.

I'm so glad you like it Mandykaye!

The book I found at a vintage German book shop, I didn't actually translate what was on the spine, but the blue color was too excellent to pass up!

I think I forgot to explain this in my note, but the pen with the two tips is for fountain pen mistakes. The white end erases the fountain pen ink (I have NO idea how it does that, still baffles me. Magic of some kind lol) and the other end writes over the area you erased.

Only 4 more days till I see my package!!

Mandy, I love that your nail colour matches the book cover. It's so important to accessorize carefully! Cheesy

The watercolour drawings of the stones are lovely. And I wouldn't have been able to pass up a book that was such in intense blue, either. A great find!

@ Sabertooth Pixie: I thought maybe that was what that pen was for lol!
@ Wulf: I realized after I took the photos that my nails matched the book! Obviously the color choice was meant to be lol!
@ LA-Fairy: not sure if this is what it actually is written but here is what my eyes see lol "v. Aue G. v. Strbg." lol makes no sense to me, must be abbreviations for something lol! Anyways its pretty neat!

My guess is the spine writing is the author's name. I threw out the inner stuff otherwise I'd check the title page.
