Here are the lovely things I got from Avril222. I am *so* thrilled with all of it!

Here's the whole shebang: she sent me a fan-freaking-tastic scarf/ruff (it makes me want to hop in my dirigible and fly off somewhere), a great leather journal, some fun gear earrings and matching necklace (with unbelievabley tiny gears!), and an adorable tiny top hat.

Here's the hat:

The necklace (the earrings pictures wouldn't turn out):

Superexcited journal and ruff modelling:

And my favorite-- the scarf!!

Thanks Avril222 for being a great swap partner! Thanks to the organizers for organzing such a great swap!

That scarf/ruff (rarf? scruff?) is great - warm and cozy yet stylish and mysterious. Not a combination you find every day Wink

*bad cockernee accent* Ladies an' Gennulmen, roll up an' take a ganders at the package I received from goldfishhead and Chibi_evil!

See the shininess! Necklace with pretty brass pendant (goldfishhead, did this used to be some sort of hardware fitting in a former life? It's so much heavier and more solid than any filigree jewellery finding I've ever seen...)

Next up, a much "lighter" necklace (didjaseewotididthere? Roll Eyes) - three little dinky bulbs wired together into a cute little pendant.

ANNNNND finally, Ladies an' Gennulmen, gasp in astonishment as you witness the astounding artistic skills of goldfishhead! She drew this awe-inspiringly beautiful scene, which I must race out and find an appropriate frame for very soon:

Pic is a little dark, I'm afraid, but you wouldn't be able to see the marvellous detail anyway.
The "border" is pen tests and was supposed to be cut off, but Chibi_evil forgot and sent it intact! I'm kind of glad - I like it like this. Not only is it kind of an interesting border, but the pen tests are a bit like a fingerprint on a polymer clay bead - they are a little insight into the creative process, reminding you that there's a person behind this piece of art. 

Not pictured is the pen nib that worked itself into the package accidentally. I am now trying to figure out how to incorporate it into a bit of jewellery Cheesy

Thankyou so much, both of you!

Wow, awesome artwork! The pen strokes really add to it. I'm also loving the little cog/clockwork jars, the jewellery and the scarf/ruff.

I have also received, and, despite being a bit slack in getting these posted, here are my AMAZING goodies!

Upon opening my package I found this:

My very own airship!!!! Once I'd removed this I found *the* most amazing goggles:

I love them. I took them to roleplay at the weekend because I'm currently playing a pilot. And now I have my own goggles! The mix of brass and leather is awesome!

Finally, I got a lovely brass key on a leather thong:

Thank you so so much Redheadgeek!

PS Your package has arrived in the US and is awaiting delivery, apparently!
