Thanks guys  Grin Here are a few of Georgie's wedding photos (didn't get a single one of him with me in my dress, sadface):


Trying on my shoes, which are a little bit too big.


(We're Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy nerds.) My wedding ring in "forty," my engagement ring in "two."

I'm packing everything up to send him now... We've had so much fun! I always hate the wait between rounds, because I stay stuck in the habit of "ooh this would make a good LV picture" and reach for my camera and find no LV in my purse.

My husband is laughing at me cos I really struggled to put her in the parcel can someone please tell me I am not the only one to be genuinely upset at the sending home stage?!

You're not the only one.  It's hard to say goodbye after having them be such a part of your life!

I am going through the same thing! I came upon something yesterday and thought, great pic with Anana. Oh, well...

I'm so very much like this. You get used to having them around.

Good news, though... Anana is home! (And the kitty is really loving on him... he must smell like new and exciting things!) Photos of all the glorious fun packed by blupaisan coming soon!

Took another day due to twin health issues yesterday...

BUT : The Poses are now on their way back home!! We're really sad to see them go, and I now have to crochet 2 for the twinlets I think... Shocked And it has to be a "boy" and a "girl" like the Poses... Wink

As promised, here's Anana and his many goodies!


Anana home, safe and sound, in an adorable little pineappley bag!


Big, beautiful scrapbook (with an ampersand hidden on every page, according to my note!)


The CUTEST little Picasso-style drawing of Anana!


Isn't one of the best things about LV swaps the weirdly awesome stuff you can get from other places? This is a piece of a sap bucket and a white chocolate snowmobile... two things I would NEVER find in Virginia!


Wedding gift! It's a thrifted and repainted ampersand!


Typographic envelopes, VT mug, a mad-libs type booklet (which is SO funny)


Postcard, bits of Anana's costumes as seen here in the gallery, maple candy (YUMMM), chocolate Necco wafers (my favorites!), a neat little coin purse, a funny (like "bloopers" sort of) second photo album which is hilarious, and bags of gummi bears used as packing material to keep things from shifting around... and a microfilm label bracelet!!! I'll be the envy of all the librarians  Grin

Blupaisan, you're the best! Anana seems to have had a great time  Cheesy

So glad you are happy with the package. When I was a kid, I would see those antique sap bucket sides turned into candelabras. They sold to tourists like hot cakes! You could do that, make it into a key holder with just one or two simple cup hooks, or get wilder.
forgot to write in my letter to you about the scrapbook... one exactly like it was my first ever scrap book as a child of ten. Then I saw this vintage one on the internet and squealed. After I had put it all together, I thought 'wait a minute, this is meaningful to me, not Alexandra...' Hope you did not find it too tacky. (-;

Congrats on tying the knot Alexampersandra! (pssst, maybe you could photoshop Georgie into a picture so we can see a wedding picture?)
