Does anyone remember AG Bear?  My kids had one.  It had a voicebox and mimic'd your voice but spoke back in gibberish.  The batteries ran down once and it started speaking in the middle of the night on it's own.  I wonder if that black doll has a voicebox?  Muahaha

Wow! What great stuff (of course)! I love the charms on the bracelet, and the two little girls with their cut-outs.

I received from Missing Willow last week, but I hadn't sent to her yet, so I was resolved not to open the package til I did. Well, I was pretty much finished then I had Another Brilliant Idea, so rather than wait and be late, I sent my original package and am hoping to finish up the ABI tonight so it can get into the mail tomorrow as a bonus.

But I just couldn't wait a day longer, so I opened my package anyway. Wheee!
Here's the whole lot:


The two dish towels:

I hooted with laughter when I saw these (you'll find out why when you get your package, Connie.) Wink According to the accompanying note, the embroidery machine is a new and barely-explored thing, but you wouldn't know it from this brilliantly done pair. (For those who don't know, our cottage is a Mongolian yurt, and we have a mouse problem there.) These are now the yurt dish towels, of course.



Another Gorey-esque item: the biggest mug rug I've ever seen - almost large enough to be a placemat. This will get lots of use. You can't see it very well in this photo, but it says "Gashleycrumb". This will be baffling to those not in the know!



And a little whimsical doodad, with Gorey images, related ephemera and a lot of character. A tiny, perfect work of art.



And finally this badge. Will anyone get this "Twilight" joke a year from now? Who cares - it's recent enough to still be very funny! Cheesy

Thanks for all these treasures! I hope you enjoy what I've sent you half as much as I like all this!

I received from cackle today. Of course it's all wonderful, it's by cackle! I will let the images speak for themselves, but I have to mention the card because I tend to pick up snakes with abandon and no worry of getting hurt, lol.

All completely cool and going into our EG inspired bedroom! Thank you so much cackle!

Oh Yay!!  Gorey cats!  I was wondering when some of those would show up!!  That tin gave me a chuckle and I love the "ornaments" - and the card too!  All fantastic!!

The cathouse is fantastic!  The little attic window makes me smile.   Smiley 

Every yurt needs it's own dishtowels, Wulf.  I couldn't resist.
