holy crap Gebah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Shocked  talk about hookin a sistah up!!!! we got home from a spectaculiar day of thrift shopping and the hardware store and i find this huge box perched against our back door!  your box is going out on monday cuz something just wouldn't finish fast enough.  and thank god i didn't send it out yet cuz you deserve oh so much more Smiley  i'll get my husband to go to work and retrieve the camera.  the wrapping itself was so beautiful, i debated if i should wait so i could snap a picture of the goods in their individual wrappings....... BUT THE SUSPENSE WAS TOO MUCH!!!!! Smiley  THANK YOU!!! i'll post the long list of treats with the picture!

so glad it made it safely....i hope that rice tea is "weird" enough for you!!!  Grin

but....to be honest...i'd be more interested in what you got at the thrift shop  Grin....junking/thrifting is my absolute favorite thing to do (besides going to wineries with hubby... Wink

glad you like the wrappings...i love to wrap things!!!!

okay, where do i start.... how 'bout with a picture of the whole shebang. alright, i'm gonna post em from my imagestation account which sometimes won't show.  but i tried uploading em to craftster and it tells me they're too big and i don't know how to make the number smaller.  so if they don't work for you guys, either try to refresh or right click em or email me and i'll try something...

i got.....
~knitting calender
~this awesome little box with a tea ball, mini tea book, and bags and labels for mixing my own tea blends!
~cup a jo stuffie named Josephine who is pictured here with her new best friend that i got in the last tea swap. i love that you embroidered my initial on the spoon.  talk about attention to detail!

~a felt doughnut pin cushion.  my husband couldn't believe how loud i squealed when i opened it.  i've wanted a felt doughnut for soooooo long.
~4 gorgeous loose leaf gourmet teas.  and yes, the rice tea is most definetly weird enough for me hahhaha.  i can't wait to try it.  i had the orange green last night and it was heavenly.
~a coffee bean encrusted green tin labeled "sweets" with sugar free coffee mints inside.  and here i had just been telling rob on our thrifting that i needed to buy coffee mints so i could have coffee in places that won't allow in drinks... like st. vincents where i smuggled my travel mug in last week.  i was doing so good until i leaned over to try on some boots and forgot i had the mug in my arm.  picture a waterfall of brown pouring out.  thank god i was right next to the towel section!!!!
~a beauuutiful coffee bean maginet
~chocolate covered coffee beans(how did you know i've wanted to try out choxie?) and the evil miss gebah wrapped them in this beautiful green gingham fabric and sewed it shut with this sweet felt coffee bean.  it really was torturous to cut it open!! i'm gonna glue a magnet to the back of the coffee bean Smiley
~coffee scented candle which i broke in last night
~a travel sewing kit in a coffee bean encrusted altoid tin!!! so cute and clever!  i swear to god you need to be on martha
~a packet of tortoise green tea
~and last but definetly not least, a box of jello Smiley cuz as you aptly pointed out, there's always room for jello.

did i miss anything?Huh? i used your card as a cheat sheet. thank you SOOOO much darling!!!!!! yer a whicked awesome swapper Smiley

i stuck a business card in the package in case you got hooked on one of the teas & couldn't find it anywhere....lol

i'm so glad you like the stuff....i was really panicked when you told me you were watching your weight....i had already picked up some fattening goodies for the swap....but not to worry...dh found them & assumed they were for him (cause i don't do coffee) & they weren't long for this world....lol

i'm happy you thought i had enough stuff in the package....i was trying to figure out how to make a change purse after i made the felt coffee bean (i think that was my favorite item...i actually stuffed it with the coffee beans) but knew i'd be late sending....so if i ever figure it out....i'll send you one....

So, I get home from a long day of butt breaking inventory at work (yes, I did say butt breaking!  we have really uncomfortable chairs) and lo and behold, I find a package of wonder and amazement sitting on my ironing board.  The wonderous Liebschien sent me this:

my most favorite coffee candy

the world's best espresso cookies (yes, thats right!  Espresso cookies!!!)  So good I'm trying hard not to eat them all right now!

a coffee inspired bracelet  (if only someone was home to fasten the clasp for me)

wonderful coffee soap (something I've always wanted)

a really cute box, which has inside of it,

the world's cutest coasters!!!! Grin
  I love it all!!!
Man, I wish I hadn't sent, yet!  Your stuff was so amazing, and after I sent, I found other stuff I had meant to send, so there may be a little somethin' somethin' extra comin' your way!  Wink  It's all perfect.  I am driving out from Chicago to Connecticut this week, so the cookies and candy will help me stay alert on the road.  This was the best swap, ever!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?
