6011  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Hands Across the Water: UK to US Swap on: November 16, 2005 06:26:25 AM
Oh boots stuff is very nice ...

What else would people like from England , I cant really think of any food items i would like from america as im not big on sweets .

It got me thinking , what does America have that England dosnt and vice versa .. id love to join as I could send alot of london things and such just not entirely sure what to ask for  Undecided

I'd LOVE ephemera like old photos, seaside postcards, anything like that, especially from Kent as I lived in Canterbury, or kitchy stuff from Margate, Blackpool, Skegness...or touristy stuff from Wales. Hmmm..I'd  enjoy British TV stuff like Bagpuss and Magic Roundabout, that we don't get here, as well as London Transport type stuff...as for what we have that you don't...I'd have to think about it. I used to take peanut butter candies like reeses over cause we couldn't get them when I lived there (word spread fast among US students if someone got a PB related package from home!) Not sure what else offhand...maybe other pop culture type stuff? Or regional stuff, souvenier type items?

I'm totally in for round 2! Awesome! I'm an art librarian (academic). I esp love vintage "librariana", since I don't work in a traditional library.

I'd totally do this after the hols. I lived in England for several years during the 1990's and miss it still! Note for any US anglophiles: the Target store in downtown Minneapolis (the Mother Ship, LOL) has an entire aisle of beauty stuff from Boots (The "British Aisle" yuk yuk) so non-Twin Cities folk, watch for the Boots range coming eventually to a Target near you!

Yah, when you buy them in stores the bottle is corked/sealed with wax/has a cap or whatever and the reeds are seperate. You put in the reeds when you put it out. The cheapest I've seen are in Target but even those are around $20 and only come in 1 or 2 scents.

cool, batgirl!  I'm glad they got there, and pretty quick too.  I have a pic of the kitty hat, but not the bear hat.

My guess is you'll look a little cuter in the hat than I do in this pic Tongue  I was tired, but I wanted to make sure I got a couple photos...still would love to see your pics!

Oh, I'm so glad you had a pic! We have our first winter weather advisory today so it's a perfect day for a new hat! Looks like my first Minnesota winter is under way!

Yay! I got my awesome kitty hat and a BONUS teddy bear hat from Dangerkitty today!! THANKS!!! I will post pix soon but I went home over the weekend and left my camera in Indianapolis.  Angry  You will have to take my word that they are adorable!
6020  UNITED STATES / Ohio / Re: Tell me about Ohio.... on: November 14, 2005 07:22:35 PM
Oh, and if you decide to move here, you HAVE to visit the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. It's the prison they used in The Shawshank Redemption, and it's such a neat place to search around in.

That place scared the CRAP out of me as a kid! My Mom would always tell me a scary tale of her delinquent cousins who went there and "were never the same"! I bet they weren't! That place is creepy!!  *shivers*
Another cool history thing I remember is LOTS of houses had tunnels and secret rooms from the Underground Railroad days. pretty cool.

I went to Ashland University which is very nearby.  I think the Reformatory is one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen.  Seriously.  I went on a "haunted" tour and I just could not get over the elegance of the whole thing.  What a great piece of history.

I always just saw it from the road and my mom would launch into her spiel. (I think she was trying to scare my brother and I to keep us out of trouble,  Cheesy ) My Dad was in the reserves at that base in Mansfield but we weren't over there much. Maybe I should check it out up close to overcome my fear! It does sound really cool but it's pretty menacing from the distance! I didn't know it was open to the public.
