Beautiful job, craftylittlemonkey  I love that moth and especially that little hand -- awesome!

So glad you got a good package, rockingbearranch.

What cool items, rockingbearranch!  I really really like the mousetrap assemblage - what great textures! And the radish dyed egg is very intriguing.

I'm looking on my phone, so I don't get a lot of detail, but I love the fabric balloon animal -- how very Jeff Koons!

Nice job!

Im kinda bugging out in the most delightful way! over my swap box from artsycandice, which arrived just when I most needed a little shot of magic!  Wrapped in flamingos and curiosity, Candice delivered the perfect package!

The first item was an embroidered hoopla that, like a lot of great art, was an embellishment of sorts.  Sheepblue had silkscreened the original image.  Then Candice embroidered around it and framed it.  As a reporter, I have to say I laughed at the visual of a fly on the wall!



This delicate item is from a sculpture she carved, then made a mold of, and cast in hydrostone.  This is about 4 inches long.  Isnt it incredible?  It looks like an ancient Greek carving in marble.  



And this guy  I dont know if Ive mentioned this somewhere, ir it was just a happy accident, but I love cicadas!  I hated cicadas when I was a kid; the sound was overwhelming and they seemed kinda creepy.  But as Ive gotten older and Ive learned more about them the 17-year cicadas seem well named  - Magicicada



Heres another view check out the fabulous red eyes and the detailed veining on the wings!



And then, Candice threw in a little lagniappe the tiniest of perfect bird skulls, mounted on its own little plaque!



Heres the whole megillah.



Altogether, a truly wonderful package!  Im so happy, Candice!

That is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors, and I love all the variety of patterns.  Fantastic job, and I know it must be very satisfying to curl up under!

Good eye, blupaisan!  It's the top of an antique I rewired a few weeks ago, and has been sinking on the kitchen counter, awaiting it's destiny...

I'm so glad you like the items, artsycandice - and what an amazing coincidence that the owl should reappear in your life!  That was made with items I pick up on my morning walk at work on a former army base.  My office manager alwayz gives me odd looks, but you never know what you'll find!

I'm so sorry the arachnid didn't make it!  I've lost a box to the USPS as well, but it was not nearly as nice as she was.

Hopefully the postal gods are satisfied, and everyone else packages will travel safely.

(Tiny Cyclops is great as well!)

I've had a setback.  For the first time I can recall, the USPS has let me down.  But I'm working on a second box post-haste.

Awesome!  I love the space urchins (how clever!) and the little "anthropoid imps".

I absolutely love the skeletized specimens -- such beautiful work!

This is a really lovely gallery!

Mailed out a day late; unfortunately my cat felt the need to examine one of my items.  

Up close.  

Under the dresser.  

With his teeth....

I fell off the world there for a couple of days, and still climbing back up into the saddle.  But I'll be done and mailing by this weekend!
