1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: OTBlackandWhite Movie Thing GALLERY on: February 27, 2018 11:23:53 PM
Oh my lord, that Maltese Falcon is exquisite!!!  So awesome!

I found my package waiting at my door yesterday.  My partner chose the movie The Lady Eve with Barbara Stanwyck and Henry Fonda.  She had never seen it before and hopefully she enjoyed it as much as I always have!

Here's my fabulous OTT!

It's a cute little travel bag on a lariat.  Notice the cards.  Stanwyck plays a con-woman/card shark who travels with her father on ocean liners, taking easy marks for their cash.

Inside, I found:

all of the little items relate to the movie, of course.  A picture of the ocean liner (it's a pin!), a tiny snake on a leaf (her name is Emma), an apple like the one Stanwyck drops on Fonda's head, a tiny bottle of Pike's Ale (Fonda's family owes the brewery.  "The Ale that won for Yale!"), a NYC subway token (Eve tries to take the subway to Connecticut!), and Hopsi is what Stanwyck calls Fonda's character.  Everything is so cute!
Plus, check out the card blupaison made!

It's a scene from the film and inside it reads, Mr. Pike demands his breakfast his swap package.  I love it!

If you've never seen this film, I highly recommend it!  It's charming and funny.  And all the little items will make sense!

Thank you for the amazing package, blupaison!!!!  I've been run off my feet with family stuff and too much traveling lately and this totally put a huge smile on my face!!!  

I am horribly late getting my package in the mail and had a setback tonight forcing a redo on a part of my OTT.  I do apologize but I hope to get my OTT finished and in the mail by week's end!!!!!

Love the embroidered mug rug, and I might have to steal that Earl gray tea that GeekGirl posted.

Calixita, I'm so glad you liked all your swap goodies! And I'm SO RELIEVED that the slippers fit, since I didn't have a properly-sized foot in the house to use for pattern drawing. Phew!

EARL GREY LEMON BARS

enjoyed one at breakfast!  so delicious!

So I probably totally goofed in my rush to get the box in the mail, but those cookies are actually Chai-spiced shortbread cookies. I almost sent some lemon bars, but they would have been soup by the time they got there. Sorry if I mislabeled! I hope they're tasty anyway!


And if I had read the recipe through I probably would have realized these weren't lemon bars but I was too eager to try on my slippers, drink some tea, nibble on my treats, etc....  They are scrumptious and perfect with a cup of tea!!!  Thank you again for all my awesome goodies!!!!  Your package is finally in the mail and hopefully will get to you soon!

I received my fabulous package yesterday but haven't been able to get online until now.  Chameleon hound spoiled me rotten!!!!!!  And I haven't even finished my package yet!  Argh!  (feeling rather guilty now!)

Here are my quick photos:
SLIPPERS!

These are so amazing!!!  They fit perfectly and the lining is so soft and warm.  The soles are stiff so I can go outside to grab the mail without having to switch to shoes.  I love them so much!!

INFINITY SCARF!

This picture doesn't do it justice by a long shot!  It's so delicate, soft and such beautiful colors!!!  I won't mind the inevitable return of the cold if I get to feel lovely wearing this!

SO MUCH TEA!

Breakfast in Paris - which I had this morning with my croissant and fruit.  Yum!  (i'm planning a trip to Paris in May with friends to celebrate our birthdays!!!!!)
Night of the Iguana Chocolate Chai - this smells wonderful and I'm planning to have some this evening
homemade Chai Concentrate - oh my goodness!!!  so special!
special black teas brought back from China along with her favorite black tea.
but wait, she spoiled my still more with a delicious treat to enjoy along with the teas!

EARL GREY LEMON BARS

enjoyed one at breakfast!  so delicious!

RECIPE CARDS


not just for the bars and chai concentrate but also for hot chocolate and a winter squash soup!  Mmmmmmmm!

BOOK!

from my to-read list.  because what else do you need while sipping tea, nibbling treats in warm slippers but a nice book to read!

I am overwhelmed with the spoilage in this package!  Everything is so lovely and beautiful and yummy!  I feel so wonderfully warm!!  Thank you! Thank you!!  Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm heading downtown now to pick up an extra treat to add to my package because my partner deserves it.  I hope to get my package in the mail on Monday now

Sorry for being MIA for a bit.  Mom broke her hip and I've been helping out.  I'm going to start brainstorming this weekend!  I can't believe we have someone ready to ship already!

I'm still in the experimenting phase since I'm trying two things that I've never made before.  Results have been mixed but I'm hopeful.  I'm going to pick up my beverage selection this weekend (that's the plan anyway   Wink ).  I hope I don't get carried away!
