Day 6 - and a RAK

I can't believe we are already on the sixth day of the Valentine swap - it is such fun opening a present a day that I don't want it to ever end! Here's the package for Day 6 from Gwynn - isn't that old-fashioned Valentine adorable?
Inside was a beautifully-decorated Altoid tin - very romantic looking.

The inside of the tin was as pretty as the outside. The bottom is a lacy fabric and it's padded. The necklace is beautiful too - lots of watch gears, charms and rhinestones. Gwynn called it "steampunk" which I'd never heard before, but I gather it means kind of grungy, vintagey. Maybe like Tim Holtz stuff? I love it all.

And yesterday I received this small 4"x4" work of art from my friend Linda. The scan doesn't show the glimmer and gold on this, but it is beautiful in person. Check out her blog here - she does lovely work!
