This thread is to post pictures of the things you receive in the Pay It Forward spirit. I thought it best to have a separate thread for this so that the thread called: ATTENTION: New likes thread for payitforward surpise 2014 could be reserved for the lists of things people like only. That way if you want to Pay it Forward with some item or items, you can see things that members like in one spot.

I came home today and found a huge box by my door. I squeeled with delight when I saw the stamps of a witch, cat, skelly, etc.

It was from booswife02 as a PIF gift to me. I am totally amazed at her generosity. She knows that I love tea and have had a rough time lately with health, surgeries and death of very close brother-in-law. She sent me a wondefulr cup for tea and some English Breakfast tea that is one of my favorites. I also got a wonderful framed sign that says Where there is tea, there is hope. Also included some soft, warm, fuzzy socks and a card that says All you need is tea and warm socks. How special!!!! You really brightened my day.

This was so fantastic, but did I mention that it was HUGE box????

There was also a card that said that since she was sending this to me and that we are Halloween friends that she had to send something for Halloween. I also got three round craft boxes painted and decorated and labeled Spells, Hexes and Curses. How cute! Plus two beautiful bottles decorated and filled with potpourri and a framed Halloween sign with witches. It is so cute.

Wow, booswife-2, I am overwhelmed. Thank you so much for your generosity. I will enjoy the socks, tea and cup for a long time and the other things will be a part of my Halloween décor.

I have the socks on already and will have a cup of tea before bed. It got in the 70s last week, but we had 24 degrees this morning with windchill of around 15 this morning. So, the tea and socks are very useful today.

Thank you again. tea sign.JPG cup.JPG boxes and bottles.JPG print.JPG

Awesome red items, Saki! I love them. I looked for some web, but all my things like that are packed away in the shed. Next year I am going to organize things so I know what is in each tote. Booswife02, you have been one busy lady.

Those are wicked looking plants, too. I got a rock where did you find such things?

Saki, that's really cool. I have only seen the red glass (Avon Cape Cod) once in our thrift store. They were selling a whole set of it for hundreds of $, so I passed. It is really nice though.

Nice that you got some things you needed for your projects too. That really worked out!

I'm always amazed by the generosity of people on the forum. It will be a few months before I'm able to go through my stored items but I do have a few things in mind for some of you.

Saki, I'm anxious to see how the snake gourds turn out. Never seen them before.

Those snake gourds are gross. I guess my hatred for snakes extends to snake like plants too. Yuck. Perfect for the effect you are going for. Noth the crown of thorns is wickedly cool.

Lizzy, how is your dad doing?

Incredible items from the members, Saki. I want to say that I have a decanter that is possibly from the same collection as your candleholder, which my aunt gave me as a present the other year after I told her how much I liked it while at her house. The variety of gourds available is absolutely astonishing.

I received a beautiful surprise package in the mail today from PrintersDevil. I was so happy, surprised and in aww of her thoughtfullness.

First I recieved these awesome horse shoes! They are wonderfully rusted and grimey. Perfect for my sleepy hollow project that I need them for! You see I live on a Military base, no horseshoes anywhere near here. Haha.....

Then I recieved this amazing spell book! The pages are guilded gold. It is so fantastic! It's not just any spellbook though it is opened to a Magic Tea for Love spell. I do a Witches Tea for Halloween and this will be a crowning jewel for sure!!! I just absolutely love it and I don't have anything like it.

What thoughtful, wonderful, kind gifts PrintersDevil! I just love them. Thank You soooo much!

You are so welcome. I am not sure why it kept printing with one page reddish. I printed it about 4 times and finally gave up. I guess it is the way it was set or maybe my printer. I thought it was perfect for you and your daughter and a Halloween tea.

I asked why the horseshoes were so different. I was told that they were for different things and sizes of horses. The heavier one is for a big horse or a work horse---or so I was told. I almost bought a couple of new ones and then realized that old and rusty looking would be better for your project, so I went searching.

So happy that they arrived and that you like them.

I can't wait to see your project with the horseshoe.

I like the reddish color in the pages. I thought that you did some kind of paint wash over it or something. I think it makes it look older. It turned out great! Ill get one of the little silver book stands, I just looked at those today! haha....
The horseshoes are just perfect for my horseman project, I don't think new would have the same affect. I probably would have been trying to grunge them up. Your gut was right, the old ones are perfect!

hopefully I can get started on that horseman project this weekend! so excited. any suggestions on how to get it to stay in a shadow box? Maybe gorilla glue? My Marine brother Gorilla glues everything, haha....
