Warning* Picture Heavy!!

I received an amazing package from kbrison.   We agreed to swap extras and we have also been partners before, so she totally nailed everything!!   Sorry for the dungeon like photos, I wanted to get everything photographed right away!

Here's a photo of everything beautifully wrapped out of the box:

Here is the amazing vintage style Christmas piece she made for me:

The beautiful bunny hoop that immediately went on my wall (I'm obsessed with bunnies)

Adorable shabby letter A for Adrienne:

This coin purse is soooo pretty! 

And I had asked for vintage style crackers and surprise balls and she totally delivered! I havent opened these yet:

Kathy, thank you soooooo much!!!  this package was truly so perfect and fun!

Better late than never with posting photos!! 

My first package from my partner PJ was awesome.  unforutnately I did not get photos of it before I distributed the pieces throughout the house.   She sent a beautiful ceramic iris bowl, some shopping bags from her city (we live in the same state), some homemade pinwheel cookies and some other fun stuff.   

The second awesome package: 
I wish I had gotten a picture of how beautifully she had wrapped everything in my favorite colors, pink and blue!  You can see some of it in the necklace photo.   She sent the most gorgeous handmade iris necklace and the most amazing set of old mercury glass ornaments that I covet and will treasure forever. This gal did her research on me!   

The 3rd package, my oh my!!!!  She knew my bunny obsession and nail polish obsession totally.   She sent the most wonderfully vintage christmas elf knick knack,  nail polish in my favorite colors, a set of iron on rhinestones (not pictured) and the best part:   a ceramic handmade bunny!!!!   She is the most talented ceramic and clay artist, and this piece will have a place of honor amongst all my other bunnies, real and fake Smiley

Pj, thank you SO much.  I loved it all!   Your third package will ship this week.  I've had a blast meeting you and making you things.

I received the sweetest package from rubylynns!!  This gal gets me!  Let me apologize for the taken-at-night photos.

First up, this gorgeous cowl that I've been wearing non stop since it's arrival!!

She also sent me the most adorable pink polka dot earrings,  a lovely candle, some adorable tags and some awesome nail decals!! 

and this one I am saving for myself for christmas.   I totally adore the surprise balls and she was gracious enough to spend the time making me one!!   I can't wait to see what's inside of this bad boy!!   

Thank you, thank you, thank you Rubylynns!!!

Unfortunately my partner flaked, but I did manage to snap photos of the item I sent him because I loved it so much!!    I chose his theme of Gothic for this piece:

I hope you enjoy my gothic momento mori locket!!!   And a big thank you to Gerbilgal for finding me an angel and also a big thank you to my angel!!!
