Here's what I got from Spydie, sorry it took a week to get pics up. 
group shot of bloomers, jabot and hair comb

Hair comb


Pardon the cat hair on the jabot, my cat laid on it before I took the picture.  I really like everything, I just have to find a blouse to wear the jabot with.

Thanks Spydie -- I hope you post pictures soon

The jabbot is really cool!

I love the glass jar too, that is sooo pretty! And the book!

Great job.

I am going to switch pc's and upload pics.
My pc had a spyware on it which caused my pc to just bleh, so i had to have it fixed, so I am running back up and all now.

Photo time.

I recieved from InShambles yesterday, and she spoiled me.
A choker, inspired by Maggots

me wearing it (I'm such a nerd)


bracelet to go with choker. You need to teach me how to make that bow. Both strings were at the bottom under the bow!

Next I found,
A book. Froud, a first in my collection. Which is awesome. I've been wanting his work for years.
But the book is about lady cottington, who presses fairys.. which is kinda funny and kind of sad too. I feel bad for the little gummers. She wants them to go away and I want them to come.
It has a bunch of letters from lady cottington's friends in it, like for example wendy, as in peter pan's wendy, and alice liddel! It is super cute! Thank you for extending my collection!

Next I find this amazing Bustle

This sign, which I've been meaning to make for months.

Under my temporary EA shrine. It has the first pic of me and her, a signed card/note of Veronica thanking me for the crafts I made her, the same rat she has on stage (large next to pic (note, not taking from stage, me no stage thief, just found it 2 days after the show at toysrus)

next... a corset!

*holy singing*
It is so awesome! And it feels nice. But just to be precise, which is the top? I think the white trim is top..
back detail of corset

And some gummy rats

This swap was the best! I mean a bustle and a corset, you spoiled me rotten.
I will defenitely make a photoshoot to show off my new goodies!
Thank you so much *big inmate hug*
I cannot wait to attend a EA show with you!

Oh MY! I have the original Lady Cottington's pressed fairy book, but I didn't know there was a book of "Letters" too! That's going on my list!

Here is a better picture of the paper/rose bowl I made Proxima:

I KNEW it was gonna bust! Though it's not as bad as I thought it would be.
PROXIMA: What might work better than glue to fix it: take some strips of paper and soak them in water then use them like tape on the bowl. That should help. (I made the bowl with the cut out innards of the book so it wasn't a total waste and thrashing of a book, even though it was a terrible book, for all of you book lovers out there.) Lady Frog, that was what you were thinking looked like soap on my teaser.

I'm glad you liked it all!

I received from my partner Maehem!!

Here is everything in its original victorianish wrapping!!   Grin

Here is a shot of everything together. 

Here we have new button tin box.  I have so many buttons that im beginning to think i have a problem as i cant leave a store it seems without buying them.   Also is a vial like they used to put fresh flowers in.  A posey I think they are called.  And a victorian chandelier hanging ornament

Next we have a pair of cuffs she made for me in a pretty gray fleece with a cute little bow.  There is a set but I photographed one.

A yoyos necklace, bracelet, keychain and a cute victorian style cat toy

And last but not least an adorable facinator headband.  I would take a pic with it on but i wasnt photographable at the moment lol

Thank you so much for a great package.  I really feel kind of bad as I didnt expect so much in comparison as to what I sent as you really spoiled me but I hope everything worked out for you and fits well!!!  Thanks for being a great partner!!

<b>Like what you see here??  It might be in my shop!!<b>

<b>I wist!! Lets do a personal swap!!!<b>

Wow for the choker and the yoyo jewellery!

Jex: Hehe, I knew it was a bowl, but I was afraid to turn it since I didn't want to make the crack worse. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try it.

InShamble still needs to post pics, and I promised her, I'd do a photoshoot too. But that can always be added later.
