Just got an awesome package from RockingBearRanch! Definitely an up-lifter on an otherwise snowy day.

All of the goodies wrapped. My husband plays the piano so the sheet music was an awesome bonus and Tschaikowsky is his favorite composer, talk about perfect.



I love that its a little vintage fabric pouch and it came with all kinds of cool stuff inside. There is a decoupaged real egg that is absolutely beautiful, I just hope I can keep from breaking it. The quill is super cool and I just happen to have a jar of black india ink that I might have to dig out of the closet now.



The little bird and kite are really adorable and our real live bird keeps trying to steal the kite because she loves polka dots.



Awesome assortment of beads, buttons and things. I love the skull and cross bones buttons and the vintage wooden thread spool.



Thanks RockingBearRanch for such an awesome package!

everything looks so wonderful!  There is something so exciting about loads of little goodies to pour over and examine.   Grin  I wish we could get more details about where things are found and their backgrounds.  Its so fascinating.

I've had a stack of old sheet music (1920-50s) I got at auction about ten years ago. Just now digging it out. We found a little gun bullet shell and sea shells and some misc rusty trinkets on ours walks. There were some steampunk clock works in there that I got at the thrift. The fabric pouch held real linen napkins for proper entertaining which were made by an elderly lady in Ohio. I found the owl figurine at the thrift, no price so I slapped a loose one on it for 25 cents. There was a sign that said I was possibly stealing from Jesus that made us laugh. Not much guilt since I've been dropping off a ton of things including furniture that they sell sometimes for more than retail. I think it is from a collective of Native American artists in California. My chickens made the egg and the little bag of feathers. Mr Turkey made the big feather on the quill pen. Some of the really old buttons might be from my grandmother. They'd be at least 30 years old. I collect misc findings from the thrift and I had the Trolley Garters and the others. The gold tin has a Harry Potter potion or spell? on the front. Forgive me, I haven't been a student at Hogwarts. It is Exploding Ginger Eyelashes, I think. And the skull buttons are actually dollar store. They won't last long since they are plastic. Enjoy!

I think that boot fabric would make a great cowgirl bandana to go with those fab moustaches. Yee haw!

I received my swap package from fancybutch today! Sorry for the pic spam everyone!



Some tape and wooden shapes

I love the variety of buttons and the dinos!  The owl erasers will be coming with me to work! Cheesy

I love these little bottles with the cork in the top.  Just what I was looking for

A wide shot of all the whimsies spread out in their groups

All the whimsies before I dumped them on the floor

Here's the top of my whimsy container!

A cute barn and grain elevator since I'm a prairie girl Smiley

I LOVE this cloud bag so much!  So cute ^_^

Thank you so much for the awesome swap package.  I can't wait until you receive yours...I kind of went overboard because my box is about 4 times the size of yours...OOPS! haha I can't stop crafting once you get me started.  Grin
