Foto Friday

I love ordering things off the internet.  It gives me something to look forward to when they arrive.  Some time ago now I order small, slower shaped fondant cutters.  I was going to use them on my RSPCA cupcakes but they did not arrive in time.  On Wednesday I received a package in the mail from China.  The customs information tag noted that the contents was a car charger.  Of course when I opened it up I found my fondant cutters.  I bet the x-ray guys at customs had a good laugh at that one.

Sometimes when I order things I get them sent to me at work.  It means that I have something to look forward to at work and don't have to rely on someone being at home to sign for the package if need be.  Today I got some gems I ordered from Earth's Gems.  They are a store on Face book and have some lovely things. 

Being that this is Foto Friday, I have taken some photo's of them for you to see.  I am also still in love with Pixlr-o-Matic as well so I played around with the images a little.

This gorgeous angel is made from Opalite.  He is 5cm x 3cm.  I love these angels.  I have a smaller one in blue goldstone that I need to photograph but it needs to be in the right ligt to show off it's sparkles.  I was also given an opalite stone and a blue howlite stone for free.  The blue howlite is very nice.

This angel and point are amethyst.  I am not sure what the specific use of the pendulum is for.  I bought it to make a necklace out of the charm.

I also bought 3 blue tiger eye stones.  Tiger eye has always been one of my favourite but I never new it came in blue and red colours.  The blue is a little too dark to be photographing in the light that I have at the moment so I will try and do it later.

On a yummy note, we were given a thank you gift in the office today.  Teeny tiny cup cakes came in the post.  I had a purple one (of course - purple fan here). 

I have had more deliveries this week but all my photos are else where.  I will post them on here tonight if I have time.

In the meantime, have a great Friday.  The weekend is almost here!

Can't wait to see what you do with the beads, gorgeous cakes and you and J should get along well. He loves ordering stuff of the internet too...It's always a surprise when we go back to Australia and see how many books he's ordered.
