A few more pictures of the box for those that wanted to see more. A few close ups too. I hope no one minds all the pictures. (I managed to save them off the SD card from my phone)

Japanese white eye on a Hibiscus flower, owl, swallow, flamingo, (some kind of migrating birds found in Brazil. Can't remember), Humming bird, chickadee landing in nest, The first generic bird (yuk)


Rooster, another swallow, hawk (can't remember which kind. I think red tailed), (Can't remember the one at the top either.. I think a crane), cockatiel, random bird feeding baby bird (I just liked the picture and have no idea what kind of bird it is), crow, eagle, Reppin' CA the CA quail, sea gull, adorable toucan


Sparrow, racket tailed drongo, ostrich, booted racket tailed hummingbird, penguin, cormorant, love birds, and a mallard!

The box all put together

I received from Adrienne_bowers a few days ago and here are the pics of my great package!

She made me a cute birdie pouch:


A super cute and fuzzy knitted(?) or crocheted(?) owl.   He is so cute!


A handmade ceramic pink egg, framed fabric owl, and owl pin.


A very pretty pink and grey bird box.


Two necklaces!   Pink owl and peacock feathers.


And, last but not least, a vintage owl glass!   Isn't it great?!



Thanks so much Adrienne!   It was a wonderful package.

You may have already seen it in her post on the Miscellaneous Topics board but I received the most truly staggering package on Monday from microjivvy. I took photos that night but they were horrendous so I meant to take some yesterday in daylight...but then spent yesterday hoping the couch would actually devour me to put me out of my misery (migraines suck). So today I am finally posting pictures.

















I have run out of superlatives and my jaw is still on the floor. Not only is it phenomenally beautiful and skillfully crafted, but she totally "got" me. I love it. You have no idea...

I know! I feel so spoiled! I can't stop looking at the masks, they're so delicate and intricate. My mind is totally blown by anything that involves such tiny detailed work because my big sausage fingers could never manage it.

I'm so glad she made it through in one piece, lol!

I was really worried about her outstretched arm, so I packaged her, did a pretty vigorous "shake test" and then carefully unwrapped her.  Her arm was fine, but there were KNOTS in her skirt and then, all three knots on the mask she was wearing had come untied... are you freakin' kidding me? Back to the work bench to fix the mask (adding a dot of CA glue to each re-tied knot) and to untangle her skirt.

Then I pretty much turned her into a mummy (wrapped her in a strip of fabric) and repackaged her... and crossed my fingers.  Cheesy
