Eiseldora was kind enough to post teaser pics of the lovely things she sent me. Here (finally) is everything unwrapped.

I think with a Hobbit swap, it is only appropriate to start with the food. Eiseldora sent me a package with 6 Hobbit inspired food mixes from tea cake (which was a big hit at my weekly D&D group) to muffins to cram. She also included fruit leather (my favorite), trail mix, pumpkin puree (for one of the mixes), and two kinds of jam.


A cookbook with all the mix instructions.


Plates, napkins and small utensils.


Dwarven Treasure and Handspun & Dyed Yarn.

Like I said before, the yarn is awesome.

Maps. I love maps.

(Sorry its turned the wrong way. I fixed it, but it in Photobucket but somewhere along the way, that info was lost.)

and lastly, posters, posters and more posters. I had to lay them out on my living room floor to get them all in one picture.


Sorry it took so long to post, but that you SO much Eiseldora. You sent an awesome package!

Got my package from Ruby Copperhead. Kinda late but the UK mail system is super slow this time of year. She made me a hobbit hole themed mini afghan and a super cute teeny Gandalf who is currently watching over my LOTR DVD collection Smiley

(plus some extras!)





thanks!

That looks like a fun package!

My wonderful package from whenindoubtsew is here & I love every bit of it.  Hopefully I find where my camera skipped off to during our Holiday trips so I can let y'all enjoy the awesomess that arrived!  Having to keep the rest of the family out of the goodies until then is a full time job, they make great sneaks.

Found my camera!  Forgive the pics, I tried but could not capture all the awesomeness in this package.  Not only was I spoiled, but so were Hubs and Goose. 

Most of the MiddleEarth themed goodies.

A beautiful scarf with one of the leaves of Lothlorein on a pin.  Beautifully done and sure to keep unfriendly eyes from seeing me. You can also see a wonderful Hobbit Door Tin here, but what could it be?


A Hobbit Hole Playset with all 14 Adventurers and enough cups, food, & tea to go around.  We are really enjoying this while waiting for our second breakfast to arrive.  Cheesy
Hobbit Holes mean comfort and that means warm toes.   Slippers in wonderful colors with very Hobbity Acorn buttons. Hobbits can actually be quite fierce with an acorn if they are threatened.

A beautiful earcuff!  Love it! So swirly and wonderful!



 Thorin's Key, love all the beautiful shiny bits!



One of my favorite quotes is the way Bilbo introduces himself to Smaug, quite long, but whenindoubt fit it on a candy machine that will be refilled with sweets soon.

Look at this perfect Bilbo patch!  I keep geeking out about the curly hair on his toes, he is a trully fortunate Hobbit.


Beautiful and soft fingerless gloves/gauntlets with wonderful detail.  So comfortable, I haven't wanted to take them off.

There were also magnets of the shields of MiddleEarth that are keeping the fridge secure. . . And every other metal surface in the house.

Goose's favorite is an amazing extra.  A wonderful tin with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ready for training.

 You move magnets along the bottom to get the turtles to move. She got the idea from something on Pintrest and she is brilliant.

More extras:  These stickers had to be hidden from Hubs so that I could get a pic.  He loves the Jayne one so much, and all the others.  The puffy Austrailian animals were a hit with us all. 

Thank you so much for such a wonderful package.  I can't tell you how much I love it!

Oh man goldfishpollywog - you take really good photos. I am glad it arrived and it's all in one piece.

And your goodies for me arrived shortly after and they are amazing!! I love everything and here's some photos to show why  Cheesy I hope everyone is still checking so they can see this awesomeness  Cheesy

This is the parcel as I unpacked it - each thing wrapped in tissue paper with a cool card



A gorgeous scarf which is so soft and comfy - even though we are having a heatwave here in Australia the office I work in is really cold so I could put it on and make my work colleagues jealous. It's a pattern goldfishpollywog made up herself and a suitable craft to do on the road (ahem sorry "journey")



Next were some crafts for 'Bag End' - two silhouettes of Bilbo and Gandalf (my favourite characters) inspired by something from my Pinterest. These are so perfect and will come in very handy.



And a gorgeous earcuff (the elves in Tolkien are to blame  Cheesy) a very cool felt badge with my name in elvish (awesome) and a cutie pie polymer clay owl with a really pretty green bell tummy!!



Thankyou so much goldfishpollywog - I love what you have made for me  - you are the best  Grin

So glad you enjoyed it!  I loved crafting for you. 
As soon as I saw the regency silhouettes, I knew I had to make them.  Goose says I need to do all the dwarves as well, but that might be a bit much to bite off.

Thank you to everyone for making this swap so full of angels, that we never needed to find one!
Thanks Ruby for organizing! Cheesy
