That etched pendant is beautiful!  The pudgy unicorn is almost too cute.  What is the quote on the frame?



You'll see cats & rats & elephants, but sure as you're boon, you're never gonna see no Unicorn. Shel Silverstein

The quote was one I listed as a favorite too Smiley

That watercolour does make me think Alice in Wonderland too!

I received from Helena Puck today, but I just started a set of long shifts so I am not opening until I can fully appreciate everything - which is usually on my day off (I am very tired and cranky working shifts when I get home) - so I am opening and taking pics on Thursday.

I got my package from pjr107, and I couldn't be happier.

First, the cutest hat, here modeled by my lamp.


But the nonsense is all in the buttons - as the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy says, earth is (mostly) harmless.


Second, this doll in the true spirit of Hyperbole and a Half:


And here is an action shot of the doll with my deeply puzzled cat:


Thanks, they're great!

Dude! A hyperbole and a half doll! I love that comic. In my house we pretty much only use the "I am actively being mauled by a bear" pain scale. Thumbs up to you for liking it, and pjr107 for the rad doll!

I LOVE the mostly harmless pin set! 

I am seriously glad I waited before opening my package - my day was #$%@ yesterday and needed something to remind me that there is fun nonsense in the world...

First off - let me show you my new ring!

C'est Frommage!  My favourite Monty Python bit is the Cheese Shop - to this day, I snicker as I pass one by or go in one, and laugh if I hear bazouki music.




There was also an Alice in Wonderland Pendant - I love Alice - for the nonsense and John Tenniel's classic images.



And two rainbow Alice canvasses...



Because sometimes things just are curiouser - head-smackingly so sometimes... in fact, head bashing into the wall nonsense - like yesterday ...



thank you Helena Puck - you definitely lifted my spirits and made me smile and laugh today Cheesy


Bring on the rest of the nonsense!

That ring looks great on you! I'm so glad you liked everything. I was trying something new with the canvases because I've never really done things like that before.

I received from Gala Apples! She sent me two lovely little art pieces and a new ornament for my Harry Potter Christmas tree. Love eveyrthing, thanks so much!

First up, a quote from one of my favorite Monty Python skits:


Next, the irresistible Statler and Waldorf from the Muppets (their grumpy antics always make me smile):


And my favorite, a gorgeous stamped leather ornament celebrating my favorite Dumbledore quote:

Unfortunately the chain on the bottom-most row broke on one side but I can replace it easily - I just need to pick up some more silver jewelry chain - mine was mysteriously all used up.

Thanks again for a great swap!

Wheeee! I received an amazing package from the uber talented Ludi!

Check out the loot and prepare to pin...



There's a Mervyn Peake book of non-sense, an embroidered quote and the most gorgeous little non-sense house. There's an Alice in Wonderland card too... but it seems to have escaped the picture taking.

Here's a better look at the stupendous stitchery... seriously gorgeous.



And I hope Ludi gives this piece it's own thread because it absolutely deserves it.
