Here is what I came home to yesterday! (I was so excited about it that I drove over to my Friend's house just so I could show it all to her!) It all came with a lovely personal letter from Ralph.
How fantastic is the presentation?
Look at this decoupaged box! And the little tag attached to it says "You left a...got some of your stuff in a trunk, never did get a chance to drop it off".
The whole package was full of these carefully chosen, appropriate quotes.
Here's what I saw when I opened the box:
I squealed "Look at all the pretties!" and that's exactly what the quote inside the box says!
Look at the fantastic Firefly layout diagrams in the lid!
The box was decoupaged inside ...
and out ...
(Love the Fruity Oaty Bar graphic!)
Now lets have a closer look at some of the pretties:
Bracelets that read "Browncoat" and "Can't stop the signal"
They came with a note that read "You can't stop the signal, Mal. You can never stop the signal."
A Zoe necklace that clasps at the back and fits just
(Although here it's modeled by my upside down vase. Hard to photograph whilst wearing, you know?)
A Companion Compact in my favourite colours. Always useful when trying to look as good as Inara...
It had a note with it that read: "Only time I seen something as beautiful is some of the things Inara has"
and the inside...
A rearview mirror charm (I will be using it as a bag charm, so I can have it with me always! I love it!)
see the serenity symbol under the glass marble?
Craftsters just love glass marbles dontcha think?
Kaylee earrings which I LOVE LOVE LOVE! And am wearing as I post this. They are in colours I love. The bead is a red glass with bits of silver foil in it.
The Kaylee pendant and a close up. The colour of the thread is my favourite (red) and very auspicious (meaning it bodes well or is a good sign), which plus the lucky coin, makes for ... well, good luck!
And lastly here are some goodies that came with the package but didn't fit in the box of pretties.
A journal in ... my favourite colours... with nice textured paper and a chopstick holding the handbound book together. And the serenity symbol. Gorgeous. The tag attached reads " Yes, I've read a poem. Try not to faint" See? Excellent quote choices! So much thought!
Lastly, the role model every girl should have! - Prairie Harpy Kaylee!
She is holding her tag, which reads "I seen the trouble plain as day when I was down there on my back"
Now I'm not normally a doll person, but I do believe My Little Prairie Harpy
will have to be my car mascot, guarding against mechanical failure, which is what Kaylee does best ( ... or is it second best? Hmm.)
So, yes, good loot! I scored! Thanks Ralph!
And thanks for organising Mikan!
