It looks exciting, doesn't it? And that's because it was, very much so! Inside was the lovely bespectacled monster, Austin. He made himself right at home.
And look what else he brought with him:
So big, big thanks to Monda! Austin is quite the most dashing monster I could ever imagine, what with his funky specs and all, and I think he is fab. Equally, I really love the bag - bags are my biggest weakness, and this one is just great. I do believe that Austin and I are going to get on just famously - andf if you were wondering where you could get a lovely monster all of your own, then head on over to Monda's etsy shop where there are monsters galore (but none as nice as mine, 'cos he's the best).
While I'm busy thanking people, I also wanted to say 'hello and thanks' to all the nice folks who have stopped by my blog and left comments. You've made a new girl feel very welcome, and I do appreciate hearing from you all and checking out your own blogs.
That said, some of you are blatant stirrers. Trashalou: thanks a bundle for putting worrying suspicions in my head about The Armless One - I'm now convinced he wants to murder me in my sleep. Great.
And in response to the debate about how The Armless One managed to get the shiny thing around his neck without any arms: I think he has joined forces with these fellas...
Rent-a-Crowd (aka the Monkey Army)
... so now I think they're out to get me too. *Sigh*
