ahhh its taken me wayyyy to long to reply. thanks for uploading those pics for me, grenouille. This is the only camera I've come across that has a special cord, not just a standard one. Anyways, Since you posted pics, I'll post action shots??

(I also loved that we send each other aprons of similar fabric Smiley )

Forgive the unhappy expression. I recall me trying to show off and BF making fun. Me: "Just take the picture already grrr!" hahaha.

Yummy coke out of a pretty pinup girl glass Smiley

I also got a matching head scarf, which I wear while I'm cleaning and doing laundry. BF teases but I remind him that I'm practicing for being a housewife and his demeanor softens  Cheesy

Anyways, sorry this took sooo long but thanks for everything grenouille I LOVE IT ALL Smiley

Fun necklace!  I'll have to Google shrinky dinks later because I just remember the toy when I was 5 & I keep seeing all these shrinky dink crafts.

Love the action shots!  Smiley

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!

Hurray for action shots, kittymoose! How cute are you in your apron. Good answer for the BF, too. Wink And seriously, let me know which glass broke and I will do you up a replacement because I feel really bad that you don't have a set now!

I was delayed in sending smashu's package but it will be shipped out tomorrow!

Here's a teaser pic

And some shots of the awesome stuff she sent me!

vintage brooch, vintage fabric Nintendo DS case (I needed one of these!), a little feathered fascinator that is so cute, and a retro styled card of vintage beach babes that says "born to be wild"

action shot with the fascinator!

I wish I had her millinery skills!

The glass that broke was the Brunette (?) kneeling girl. The one kneeling forward. You don't have to make a new one if you don't want to though, I currently only have 3 place settings at the table  Cheesy

HEY! sorry it's taken me so long to post pics! I was at my aunts then got a horrible stomach bug Undecided

but, i finally got them! and have blonde hair again so they look extra good  Tongue
(it was red before, hence the orangieness. and LOL at the fakie victory rolls)

First was this awesome Elvis apron! We made the same shape aprons, and both used satin ribbon for the ties... too funny!

haddd to wear the heels! and gosh, maybe i'll wear this when I go to graceland this summer! I can't wait!

Then, was a cherry pouch, which I forgot to take pics of, but its a black fabric with cherries all over it! Already using it for my school/drafting supplies Grin

Inside the pouch was these three awesome hair clips. I LOVE them! I have always wanted hair flowers, but have just never made them for myself! These are HUGE and just awesome!

Love the colors! I've been wearing them so much!

Then there was a totally cute sweater clip! I saw she made these and secretly hoped for one! I love it! I wish I could do resin, the outcome is amazing!

So classy!

And I just had to get a shot of my 50's romper/playsuit thing. Awesome thrifted find. I just remembered about it, and had so much fun wearing it for the photos I'm going to turn it into a dress so I can wear it out this weekend! Cheesy

YAY! Thanks so much meggers! You really got my style down! Cheesy
