Here you go!  Photos of my amazing package from Annachronism.  I should mention that the postman buzzed at 7.50am and by 8.30am, this was my new FB profile photo:

It's my SUPERAWESOME Victorian mustache.  It's quite possibly the coolest "extra" ever. 

So Annachronism made me very own Steampunk Ringmistress's outfit complete with bustle, wristcuffs and jabot, and the cutest teeny tiny monkey.  Here's a photo of some of the items:

And here's a (kinda blurry-apologies!) photo of a wristcuff in action:

And my insanely cute monkey from the front and the back.  Note the adorable tail!

Finally, here's the bustle from front, side, and back:

Annachronism was the best partner.  I love everything so much.  The colors are perfect, the items are perfect, and it's all beautifully made.  And geez, that woman can crochet!  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  What a fantastic first time swap for me.  Smiley

The only thing that could make that monkey any cuter would be if he had his own mustache. An opportunity for another swap perhaps...

I had received my package from NightOwl21, but I have been recovering from some super nasty strep throat over the weekend so here are my pics.
Thank you for waiting and being patient, sorry for the delay!

My package was quite wonderful and full of extras! I received some lovely garb and feel quite spoiled! I really hope my partner is as pleased with my package as I was with hers!

Everything together:

Some great wrist bands for when I start spinning a fire hoop this summer!

Action shot of said wrist bands

A super cute paper elephant that stands up. Elephants are my favorite circus animal!

An adorable glass bottle that says "secret poison", Goes super well with the collection I have on my vanity!

A steam punk eye patch for when I am really especially rouge Wink

Action shot of said eye patch

Two notebooks and a pretty necklace. One note book has a little elephant holding a gem on its trunk with a lace accent. The other notebook is covered in leather. The necklace is of a lady bust. It is very cute!!

A pink neck warmer that is totally my style and color.

Action shot of said neck warmer

My favorite thing of the swap a wonderful tiny steampunk hat.

Action shot of said hat

A steampunky belt. How she knew I needed a brown belt is beyond me...

Some great earrings that are also totally my style and color. have worn them everyday since receiving them.

Her card was also super cute! I saw this stamp at jo-anns and almost bought it

On the inside was an art deco/ art nouveau design that I totally love!!

Here is me with (most of) my new steam punk garb.

Thank you so much NightOwl21!! You totally spoiled me! I love all my stuff so much, I really hope you like what I made you!


Where ever you go, there you are.
