Thanks!  The dress and hat are actually a dog costume pattern for the Wizard of Oz, lol...I just changed the sleeves and the hat a little bit.  I'm glad the petticoat shows!

Ok....so here is the wonderful package I received from PirateColey!

First is a gorgeous viney green corduroy bag with a brown flower and wooden handles, this is so pretty:

I LOVE the colors of this...I actually specifically requested one of PirateColey's charm bracelets...it has lovely bird charms mixed in.  The leaf is a cute pin!

This next item is so beautiful I can't believe it is a handcrafted item, the painting is meticulous and the colors are my favorite....Here he is chillin' with my hosta...although I have him in my living room so my toddler doesn't run off with him and hide him outside!  My living room is a rusty orange, so he fits indoors wonderfully, too.

More gnomes...this one is a beaded bookmark!

And if you haven't wisted something yet, you will probably want what's next.  But they've made themselves at home here in my yard, so unfortunately for everyone else....they are here to stay.

It's an albino hedgehog!  And she is very soft and squeezable, my son immediately gave it a bear hug and said "TAAANK OOOO!"  This bunny plushie is SO DAMN CUTE, and it was made for my son Evan, who is 2 years old...although I think he kinda claimed the hedgie too, lol.  The bunny has so far been riding toy cars and toy tractors, an  I've been hearing "Bunny! Riiide!" an awful lot.  

Bunny also had a slumber party with Evan last night, and breakfast this morning.  Ignore the yogurt on his belly.

But wait, there's another creature that's new in the neighborhood:

It's a pink striped sock bunny! He even has a non-skid belly! LOL!

I also got some extras....owl pins, these awesome wood beads, a skunk and owl bead, a fabric pattern to make a stuffed frog, and a green velvet vest that matches my bellydance outfit great....It just needs the hooks slightly adjusted so it fits a little more snug.

This was an awesome swap!  Thank you so much PirateColey for a very generous and beautiful package....you are an awesome partner!  Kiss

Pirate - what a great package - you outdid yourself!

I also received from edenkitty yesterday and this is what was in my box!
  First this great bag made from recycled shirts and a belt!  CUTE!

Next a key fob and a necklace with some sweet little birds etched into them - (hope they show up in the pics.

And finally my favorite - a pair of handwarmers...can you see the owls?  I can't wait to wear them when the weather cools off!

Thanks so much edenkitty!!   Cheesy

I received from Aisy! Here are the nifty goodies she sent us.


A sweet note, a little monshishi monkey, a journal for my creative little boy to sketch in with a hand felted multi-layered tree on the cover, a fleecy monkey water bottle carrier for me (very handy!), a head band for my little girl with a hand felted and embroidered leaf, hand melted crayons (made from Aisy's childhood crayons! Lots of crafty mojo there), and the cutest little turquoise slippers with fancy leaf appliques on the toes.

Thanks partner, lovely swapping with you! Can't wait for you to get your parcel, hope you like it too.

I received from zombie on friday, but I've been laid up with viral pharyngitis so I'm just now getting around to posting the pics. 

Here's the whole lot, main focal point being the wood sheet cutout of a moose in the woods, a pretty scene straight from my wist.

And here's a closeup of the magnetic note pad (which has the acorn and owl stamped on every other page) as well as a little clay owl magnet.  So cute!

thank you zombie!

What good is warmth without cold to give it sweetness?

and aisy, those crayons...I've never seen something like that, that is amazing!  how did you make those?  the monkey water bottle carrier cracked me up too, lol......
and that wood sheet cutout is so unique, how was that done?  very cool!
