I received from EdelC!
My favorite thing in crafting is to see it all made in miniatures.
Edel truly delivered on that!
Here is the box as it is filled with goodies.

And a more detailed showing-off of each item...

This is a pendant (or could be hung elsewhere) made from a spoon!!! I adore mushrooms which is the main feature here and the other embellishments look really old which I love.

this looks amazingly like a light my great grandfather made. I inherited it years ago and it is one my my prize posessions. I am thinking that here, I am seeing a crystal gazing ball. Adorable!

shrunken heads!!  Have you noticed that all of my curiosities are labeled with info, just as 'real' ones were?
I love the look of this pair.

pardon the foreground thumb.. as ya'll can see it is a bottle full of bones, one of which still has the head attached. Check out the ancient wax sealing at the top, not done to perfection which causes it to appear most realistic!!!

inside this one is a tentacled arm.

the moment I unwrapped this item, I squealed. 'she did it!' I thought. I had a request of a hand or full arm holding something. I am so glad to get this!  Love it!!  It does have a base so that it may be upright, but I am gonna use it at the particular angle.

Hmmmm, wondering what can be inside the container marked HOLD.

Stuff! A plethora of teeny tiny curiosities! All traveling safely as its owner gathered them, in built-in nesting cavities.

Not easy to photograph something this small, but I removed items to show off. Rolled up maps or documentation, three different shaped bottles of goodies. And a twig?wand that due to its solitary nature, must be most important to the original collector.... I am amazed that anyone could properly seal these with twine and wax. they are tiny!!


Edel, I am so happy with everything you made for me. You packed it well, not a single item damaged. I love your creations.
THANK YOU!!

I am so glad that they all arrived intact, That was a worry, and yes, wax and string on tiny bottles may have occasioned a little frustration!
