I promised to post the wood burning pieces I received from elociNNicole.  I wrestled these away from the kids to photograph.

And this beautiful mirror in may fav color!

Thanks again elociNNicole

I think my cat is sending me subliminal messages...

I received my package from Ruby Copperhead exactly a week ago, but wasn't able to take photos untill now. I have however used the main swap item every time I leave the house as it is really really cold(yay, finally a winter with snow!!!) at the moment and this keeps me quite warm:

Yes, it is a mario mushroom hat!!! I asked Ruby if she could make me one as she did one before, but she had quite some trouble with the last one so I couldn't be sure I would get one. It is sooooooooooo warm and makes me happy wearing it. Sometimes though I get irritated why people on the street stare at me untill I realize it might be because of the hat  Grin
The rest of the package is pretty pink:

There are vintage placemats, red on one half and pink on the second tablecloth, 4(!) vintage curtains, pink yarn, fiber fill, a glow-in-the-dark mushroom keychain, a black flower pin and row counters.
The bf. might even let me hang the curtains in our new appartement eventhough they are pink, because he likes the big graphical pattern(we are moving together on 1st January). I might have to add that my current room(still living with my parents) is all pink with a bit of red and purple  Cheesy
And here's a close-up of the pin and keychain:

Thanks so much Ruby Copperhead! It is a fantastic package!!!

I received today from the wonderful Knickertwist!
First, here is a group shot of all of my loot! A shadowbox shrine, crocheted gnome, Wish tin shrine, robot, decorated match box, tiny tin of whimsy, and an altered book.

Here is a close up of the little robot. My hubby really likes him and he's found his home in the shadow box in the dining room.

The sweetest little tin shrine. It has also found it's home in the shadowbox.

The whimsy shadow box shrine! This is to go above my craft desk for inspiration. Isn't she lovely!

I'm gnome crazy and Knickertwist must have known! He will fit right in with Roamy Gnomey! You can take his hat off and he is bald! It is a hoot!

Here is the front of my altered book. I didn't want to hog the thread so if you'd like to see pics of the rest of the pages feel free to go to my flickr. It is my first altered book and I love it! I plan on moving it around the house so that I can enjoy it everywhere.

A shot of the shadow box in the dining room. You can spot the robot and the Wish shrine!

Thanks Knickertwist! I hope you receive soon!

(BTW AlwaysInspired... if you raise the arm on the robot he will balance and stand on his own  Wink )

I got a truly fantastical package from the AMAZING AlwaysInspired today. Every last thing was completely and utterly perfection. Just look at these goods....

Monster Mittens!!!!

My kiddo tried to swipe them but I told him to back off  Wink

Paper Graveyard

This was in my kids hands about 3 seconds after I opened the box. He had a grand time playing and setting the whole eerie thing up. We moved it into our gingerbread town where it fits in perfectly Smiley

Primitive Marie Laveau Doll

Isn't she lovely!?! I just adore her Smiley She even has a wee voodoo dollie and mojo bag. Perfect!

Home Sweet Home Embroidery

How completely awesome is this? It could not possibly be better! We all love it and can't wait to find the perfect spot to show it off.

I'm gobsmacked at how utterly spoiled I am.

Yay! Grin
I'm so glad it arrived Knickertwist! I was getting worried.
I had Marie's mojo bag pinned on with that rusty pin. Must have come off.
Shipping to Canada always scares me! Things seem to have a rough ride sometimes.

The home sweet home embroidery is watercolors on muslin and then embroidered details. I found different pics of vintage sideshow banners and drew up my own family from them.

Glad you love everything! We even received on the same day! Grin
