I received a wonderful package from thanate today!!!

Here is the jar and extras! I said I loved skulls and skeletons and thanate did not disappoint with the the cool skeleton things! I love the skeleton warriors and dino skeletons.


Here is a close up of the bat jar!


All that was in the jar!!!!

It's hard to tell but there is a huge pile of awesome skull beads in the middle and towards the top is a fun cat bunting.

We both love bones and she sent so many, including a real ground hog skull!!! It is soooo cool! She also sent an owl pellet and fox & coyote bones that have holes drilled to make jewelry!



Finally, here is the great set of bottles she made! I love the choice of copper wire, it goes great with the two purple tops.


Thanks so much thanate!!!!!! Cheesy

RaraAvis- I was thinking luminary with the jar, and then utterly failed to include an electric tea light-- sorry!

Anyway, I got a super lovely package from RaraAvis today also, of which there will be pictures as soon as I can get my phone to play nice with the picture uploading, since it's not talking to my computer anymore. (bah, technology.)

Ok! I have achieved some photos:



Me: No, don't open that; I'm trying to take a picture of the awesome leather-covered box with the skull on top!

4YO: But all the cool stuff is in the box, Mommy!

(ahem)


Cool stuff!  There are snakes, there are coyote vertebrae, there's a little pink ghost that winds up and whirls around.  Stickers, ribbon, many colors of jingle bells. 


I love the little wooden leaves!  There are *so many* cool charms in here; my favorites are the skeletal cat (tho-- why is it a thing to have animal skeletons with ears on??) and the skull-shaped bottle in black glass.  The felted cat and the mini-broom have already found homes hiding in various potted plants. 


And teeny tiny pumpkins suitable for decorating the fairy garden.  So of course we went out and did that...



(I am not sure why the cow is standing on the bench-- maybe she's scared of the skeletal hand rising from the thyme?)  Anyway, new additions from RaraAvis include the ghostly figure, the pumpkins & the basket, the skeletal hand, the snake, and some lovely ice age mammal skulls.  Oh, and there's broom parking in the back.  Several of these things came back inside after being photographed, but much fun was had by all.

Wowza...so many awesome Halloween whimsies in the gallery so far Smiley

thanate, the ground hog skull and assortment of bones you sent to RaraAvis is so cool!  I don't think I've ever seen a ground hog skull  Shocked

RaraAvis, you've outdone yourself with the adorable tiny pumpkins Cheesy  And the felt kitty is pretty fab!

And I've received from Rosie1981 as well!  Today was a great mail day Smiley

Check out the terrific container she decorated.  The texture on the cap and all around the jar is super.  This will be a perfect addition to my Halloween dcor!...I love this so much!



And a terrific assortment of whimsies that was inside the jar.  I had so much fun checking out everything she sent.  Some of my favourites are the tiny books (with images on each of the pages), the teeny tiny lizards, the sugar skull, and the fun Halloween-themed soaps.  



Rosie1981, thanks for swapping with me!  Kiss

I love that "Hiss of cat" jar!

RaraAvis- I was thinking luminary with the jar, and then utterly failed to include an electric tea light-- sorry!

I thought it looked like a luminary. I will have to try it out tonight! Thanks!
