Let me just say: excuse any typos, I'm in a sugar coma from bonza's extras.
It's dark and rainy here, sorry, so pics of the shawl (top of the picture) might not work out today. I will update on a sunny day.
Besides, someone has already claimed it before I could even try it on:
So, the shawl color is this lovely dark brown, to go with my love of really really dark bitter chocolate! Yay! I love it, has a little "fan" pattern to it, nice and curvy design without being too fussy. Perfect!
Then there's this *adorable* little bag out of a lovely autumn-y yarn:
Look at the decorations:
They're Polos! Like LifeSavers. Hee. That could be dangerous, Bonza - I could be out running errands and suddenly have a sugar craving......
Then a cute bag with embroidery on it: "I [heart heart heart] CANDY!"
And inside the bag! OH MAN!
More Polos, AND! AND and! These "lollipops"I haven't seen in years and years and years. They're like ... um, gritty sugar pressed together?
Sounds awful, but oh WOW did I love those when I was a kid. Sort of like Necco Wafer lollipops in a way. Heh. SHE FOUND SOME! And then. Oh. Man.
I fell in love with this stuff on my trip to the UK last year, it's insane stuff. It's horrible, really, but SO DARN GOOD.
I got some at Brighton and finished it before I even got back to the train station, so had to go get some more before the train left.
My camera just simply cannot get a picture of the end of the stick, so imagine inside that huge hunk o' candy (about the size of a broom handle!) is, also in candy, running the length of the broom handle, "HOT LIPS" and also a pair of red lips. It's insane. And hilarious. And already chomped upon as you can see in the picture of all the candy.
Thanks bonza, it's all great! I love the polo bag, really. It's a great idea!! And I think they polos will be fine as long as I don't get them soaking wet.
