Now, here's what I received from my amazing partner! I seriously love all the stuff, it's really sweet and wonderful:

The package:

American fabric in which everything was wrapped and a cute card:

A shawl (if it's called differently, I'm sorry), made from really nice yarn and going perfectly with almost everything from my wardrobe, anda lacey headband wich is absolutely adorable:

Another wonderful headband, with crystal buttons and the letter "A":

A really cool crown-pin:

Extras with the pin - cupcake cups (which are absolutely adorable and useful), altoid tin, spice:

Thank you very much, Scotskipper!

And here are pics of what I sent her, I hope links are enough:

Walking through the glass of mirror,
going to most distant star,
looking for the higher tenor,
journey leading far and far.

Oh Scotskipper that wrap is divine!  It's so beautiful!  And Proxima, the bad is indeed beautiful, but I love the feather hair adornment.  What awesome talent!

Ooh! Such pretty things! I especially love the lace fingerless gloves from Midnight to parisgirl. They're delicate and sweet and now I must try to make some for myself! As well as the shiny headband from scotskipper to Proxima, I'm a fan of sparkly things (AND headbands) so that beauty is a winner!

This is the AWESOME package I received from sorbetsurprise. She sent me 4 items and a little note to go along with each:

The first thing I noticed, a most delightful hat inspired by Marie and my love for frilly lolita-ness! I think I have the perfect loli dress in black and white to wear this with! The shrinky has a picture of Marie <3

A toothsome cake plushie in my favourite colour PINK! That little sparkle is just too cute and I love how she sewed the cream puff on top. Her note with this one made me giggle: "Let them eat cake!" I know she didn't really say that, but it is fun anyway! Keep as a stuffie, use as a pin cushion or throw it at your underlings in a fit of rage! I wouldn't do that though--- they might decide to keep it for themselves!

Black and blue sparkly feathered hair piece inspired by the masquerade ballgown from the movie. Spaaaarkly!

Tinny and yummy cake earrings--- Marie did like her desserts! And so do I! I couldn't resist putting these on immediately upon unwrapping them. I'm an earring buff and I love mini-poly-food so these are PERFECT!

And a picture of the entire package with butterfly card---

Thank you so much sorbetsurprise! Not only for your wonderful hard work but also for being such a patient partner with me when I set my package out late! I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine ^__^

I received my lovely pink package from Solarwen!!!!  Everything was really amazing!  I'm very lucky!!

Here's the group shot all wrapped up, though I got a bit excited and started opening things before the pic!! heehee

Solarwen wrote me some sweet descriptions to go with each item so I'm going to add bit of those in here

Lace and Feather Shoe Charms

Inspired straight from the movie!  Use the ribbon to tie it round your ankle or to chic-up a plain pair of shoes!
These are soo pretty!  Haven't got action pics yet as I am pushed for time, as I'm popping back home for the weekend to see the family, but if you have them feel free to post Solarwen!

Strawberry Macaroons and pearls phone charm

If Marie had a cell phone this is what her charm would look like! heehee I LOVE this though my phone doesn't have a place to hang it on Sad so I think it will end up a keyring.
Just look at the cute little strawberry!

Baby blue and Pink garter

Candy colours from the film and it fits me perfectly!!  Can't wait to wear it though think I will have to keep pulling my skirt up to show people! heehehee!

Golden Peacock Fascinator

Because I love peacock feathers!!  Which I do and this is so wearable I love it!

Extras-pretty cake writing paper from Japan

I love this!  I write letters alot so this is really perfect!!

Thank you so much for everything!  This was a fantastic swap!!!

I received my package from poppyache ages ago but I asked her to send to my aunt's address so I didn't see it until yesterday. I love everything she made for me, plus she got also few treats from Paris to me. Here are the pics...

The loot

The parisian treat, old chocolate collectable cards

Detail of the apron, which is inspired by my wists

Detail of the pincushion jar

Loot in the jar

Small purse, which is my favourite item.

I love everything and I just hope my partner will love her package too!
