Thanks for the kind words, ladies!

And now, to present the loveliness that was sent to me by katilady:



I checked this book out when I saw it on her questionnaire, and I'd already decided I wanted to read it, so I'm glad it's the one she chose to send!

And all the goodies:


Wall art:


an atc:


a tin, painted the colors of the ocean:


and inside the tin (SOOO cool!) are GREEK FLASHCARDS!  such a nifty idea! these are the fronts and backs of some of them - the Greek words on the back are the meanings and of the English words on the front.  So what you see here don't match up... that is not the word for "murder"... Wink


Last but not least, the notecard was an art card (her mom was the artist) and some cool exhibit stickers:


Thank you katilady!  This was a lovely surprise at the end of a long day!  Grin

 Here is the fantastic package I got from zodak!
 As I mentioned before, I got THREE books! I havehad Rot & Ruin on my to read list for a while!

 Then she sent me a cool steam punk key. I think the angel wings fell off it...? Or were they extras? Either way the key is really neat. A beautiful ballerina bookmark, and some cat earrings out of clay. It was all packaged in a sweet rabbit tin. I have a rabbit so I love the tin too!

 and last but not least a cool tee shirt. She says it is for the book Vampire Kisses.  Kiss

 Thanks zodak! I love it all!
