Fairywings says, "I hope I did good".  What an understatement. 

I will warn you that this is the most picture heavy post I've ever done.  I tried to cull it down a little, but couldn't.  I apologize to those of you whose computers grind to a halt loading pics, but wait for them... they are so worth it.

My goodies came in this whimsically wonderful paper bowl.  I thought it was just a temporary housing for my wisty surprises but its actually a sturdy bowl and will be put to use in my craft room:

That pretty bowl was jam packed with goodies.  I pulled this out first.  A vampire kitty just in time to go in my 21 year old babies Easter Basket ( she got a suicide bunny in there last year).  He has some interesting bling on... oh, wait!  That's the pirate medallion that has been on my wist since the beginning of time!!!  That's hers too.  What a timely package!

Here's a close up of the medallion because its awesome enough to deserve one:

Okay, then I pull this interesting little thing out:

The note says to pull on the handle to open.  Fairywings put a dotted line around the middle instructing me to cut there if the handle didn't work.  When I opened it, this was inside:

A cute as everything little owl for my collection, and two more wrapped surprises. 

In the wrapping paper was this amazing owl.  I'm not sure what this is made of... wood, a nut, polyclay?  All I know is that I couldn't get a picture that shows the remarkable detail and that was annoying:

In the teensy box was ... hold on to your hats... these two perfect worms from Labyrinth!!!!!!!  My oldest daughter and her best friend share a love of all things Labyrinth.  She will definitely be giving one of these to her friend.  I think they are supposed to be Mr. and Mrs. Worm but they will have to be split up for the sake of friendship.

I should have put a coin in that picture for scale.  Each of those worms easily fits on a quarter.  The detail is simply amazing.

Then we have the part of the package that made my feline baby, Scruffy, very very happy.  Fuzzy and fun cat toys!  ( Scruffy was feeling a bit camera shy, I'll try to get action shots later)

In the bottom of the bowl were several fun little wrapped packages.  They contained:

a little treasure chest of whimsies.. buttons, beads, and baubles

and this beautiful little acorn tile:

and my own personal favorites!  Mushrooms!!!  I love these in a way that I can't possibly describe:

And an action shot showing how perfectly the mushrooms fit into my decor!  You can't see them, but on the other side of the mantle are framed photos of mushrooms my daughter took in our yard!

Well, there you have it!  Never ever be nervous about swapping with a newbie ladies. 

Fairywings, you made my wisty wishes come true.  Thank you so so much!

I'm so glad you're happy with what i sent   Cheesy
The owl is made from clay
 the labirynth worms were meant to both be the same guy since you wisted for 2 , I did think about making the mrs though , Hope their smallness is okay. I tried to make a bigger one later on but  i just couldn't do it.
Glad you are going to re-use the bigger container as that was it's intention Cheesy
 yay now maybe i will join another swap some day Smiley

Joining another swap "some day" is not an option.  Anyone with your skills practically has an obligation to swap Smiley

I completely forgot that I wisted for two of the worms, but that is why... so Tara could share one with Amy.  Thank you.

I feel like I could thank you for days before I said it enough for all that awesomeness.

I had different ideas on  thinsg to do to those worms but i wasn't sure why you wanted 2 and if they were for you or for someone else.Didn't want to ask and ruin the surprise.Hopefully the girls will have their own ideas on how to display them Smiley

They are perfect "as is". The girls are actually both 23 year old women.  Cheesy
