Since my partner still hasn't posted the stuff I sent I guess I will. I apologize for the crappy camera phone pics ahead of time.Smiley

This is a cameo wall hanging using a stucco texture medium. This picture is actually in its half finished phase, before I added embellishment around the edges and the ribbon to hang it from. I am an idiot and forgot to get a pic of it completely done, but this way you at least get an idea. Oh! And it's the supposed silhouette of Jane Austen.  

This is a wooden keepsake box with another famous pic of Miss Austen done by her sister Cassandra. Inside was a small drawstring bag holding two sets of glass marble magnets, one set for Persuasion and the other for Bride and Prejudice.

Since I had seen that my partner makes Regency gowns I made a work apron so that the pretty frocks won't get dirty.

Also sent in the package was a set of teas, scone mix and a set of 3 jams- orange marmalade, Blackberry Current and Raspberry Preserves- for a proper tea.

Oooo I love your pretty little blue box with the marble magnets!  Lovely!

And the apron is a wonderful idea. 

Good package!
