mabel got framed and other stories

i found a tiny vintage frame for "Mabel" not quite sure what i'll do with her now though!

Ages ago i took part in Meridian Ariel's http://meridianariel.blogspot.com/ "fairytale swap" - i meant to blog my swap gifts from Jo Lovejoyhttp://www.things-to-make-and-do.co.uk/ at the time but some pesky little boy ran off with it! He loves the little book with the textued pieces of jabberwocky skin and wing! I managed to get the book back and photographed before having to give it back - i also got a notebook and a bookmark - Jo enquired whether this was "dark" enough a tale for my taste - oh yes it sure is, as a child i was terrified of this poem which my parent's would relish in reciting to me "don't say that JabeRwOcKy" would be my fearful response - thanks Jo!!!!

ooohh look what i got in the post

loads of gorgeous fabric covered buttons from incywincystitches http://www.incywincystitches.com/

cute cute cute little dolls
and even cuter winter wonderland creatures - which i'm going to sew on to my black winter coat.
but i might just have go buy more . . .very soon!
oh and there were some cute strawberry shortcake hair bobbles but my daughter has them somewhere in the murky teenage depths of her bedroom!!!
