i called my brother (who lives with me) form work around 3 and was disappointed to hear that no package had arrived for me
after waiting ALLLLLL day to get home from work, and expecting another long day of waiting ahead of me, i was ecstatic to see a neat little package sitting on my doorstep! i can't believe what ratfinkpink sent me.
she could not have been more correct in assessing my tastes and wants! everything she gave me is beautiful and useful, with a definite vintage feel-- i am in love with this stuff. she put in so much time and effort to create some amazing pieces! prepare to feel painful twangs of envy!
first of all the box was padded with scraps of fabric, which is thrifty, recycle-y, and will aid me in creating one of those awesome fabric scrap necklaces from the featured projects
. inside was this:
there are a whole bunch, in different colors!!!
i LOVE owls, and especially anything 60s or 70s looking! i love how mean and ornery he looks!
the inside of the owl box, and....
what was inside the box! three AMAZING cuffs... my new favorite accessory! i'm telling you, she reeeally read my list!
and, for the grand finale....
HOLY COW! this is so beautiful.. i can't believe she made it, it's so professional. here's a detail of the owls:
excuse my crappy camera...
well, this was my first swap and i must say i am soooo happy with how it turned out. i only hope she likes the things i made for her half as much as i love my new owl accessories! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, RATFINKPINK!!!!!!
