Down the Rabbit Hole -- And a Request from Linda

I've had a wonderful time preparing tags for Karla's "Alice" swap.

We had to do six -- I think there are about 75 people participating! (Visit Karla's Cottage to see some of her tags. Beth also has some at Gathering Dust!)

But I couldn't stop. You could say I was swimming in tags!

I took a look at those on the flickr site and I am in amazing company!

I think Rick thought it was a lot of nonsense!

Nonetheless, these are a few of my favorites -- not necessarily all of which were sent to the swap!

And lest you think "I'm late," well -- I'm not! They were mailed Monday and should reach Kansas by Saturday!

Now, as you continue looking at Alice tags, here's a question and you may be the person who knows the answer. You might say I am "curiouser and curiouser."

Shoreacres wrote me: I had a jewelry making kit that had faceted "jewels" that went into "gold" settings. I loved it, and have searched and searched but can't turn it up anyone - ebay, etc. Is there a good site for finding such craft kits from the '50s that you know about? It has to be out there, and I've just missed it.

If you do, either post here and I'll touch base with Linda -- or better still goes to Shoreacres and let her know!
I can't wait to get my tag book!

Stop by my other blog, Chopsticks and String , for a look at the most recent book I've finished, "The Elegance of the Hedgehog."
