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.

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.
