Gashlycrumb inchies! It's so brilliant it was inevitable it'd have to be you that did it! The way they're framed is beautiful and suggests all sorts of possible things to do with inchies.

And I just re-read Racky's post and realized how ridiculously TINY that theatre is! You absolutely can't tell from the photo - it could be the size of a cereal box!

Here are the photos of the fabulous package I received from ConTexty. Here's everything altogether...


Fab Gorey-fied 'Grecian urn', Gorey box, and my very own Guest! Grin
Also a wonderful book that I can't wait to do something with, bonus stripey scarf and an amazing collection of ephemera (that I managed to delete the photo of!) including a playing card!! I collect odd playing cards, so this was so exciting to see, especially all the way from Israel.

Here he is my Guest again, up to no good as usual no doubt...

He's perfect!

The wee painted box contains some wonderful painted pegs...

Along with the Gashlycrumb Tinies!

Thank you so much for a wonderful package! Kiss

Love it all ConTexty - especially the Tinies box and stripey pegs  Cheesy

And prepare to be amazed everyone as I received a superbly spectacular package from Craftsunderground. I loved opening every lovingly wrapped parcel in the box and was totally in awe of Crafts mad skills!!

First is an incredible embroidery hoop - N is for Neville is my favourite Gashlycrumb letter "ennui" fascinates me as a word. It is perfect. Look at poor Neville's face peering over the window ledge  Shocked





Next - a quartet of divinely vintage necklaces including a spot on thimble pincushion that I had pinned and a Gorey-esque picture of a lady sewing with corresponding sewing machine image on the back. And a altered pendant using found metalwork  Grin I will be wearing these all the time!!



When Crafts asked me my head size I secretly hoped for a cool hat and did she deliver. It is a beautiful black and silver fabric, cloche/vintage style and has a rockin' fabric flower with an additional button clip I can add or use separately as a brooch. It reminds me of the pictures of Gorey's Victorian ladies and their fancy headgear!! There is also a red fabric flower comb - you have no idea Crafts how often these will get worn - they are great!



And some awesome extras - photo/note holder made out of a vintage spool and ribbon/buttons, a hat pin, and lots of great vintagey supplies - it is so hard to get this stuff easily where I live and I did a little jig of excitement when I saw them - my problem will be narrowing down the million ideas I have for them - let me just say 'gibbous-inspired' has been googled alot lately and lots of stuff pinned to my Pinterest boards  Grin





Thank so much Crafts - I have loved swapping with you and love, love, love everything you made me!

Craftsunderground, do you have a "House of Gorey Fabrics" shop in your neighbourhood or something? The fabrics you used for the hoop are perfect, and then that hat material looks like it was actually designed by E.G. himself!

That thimble pincushion is a marvellous thing. I see great gift possibilities there!
