So I haven't posted in forever because the 8th was [livejournal.com profile] glowwormtu's wedding and I was doing MoH stuff, and then my parents were in town because they were invited to the wedding (but then they randomly decided to buy me a TV, chair, ottoman, and rug because they say my brother is always asking for stuff and I never do). And then pretty much since the wedding I have been house/pet sitting. First for my fur Nephew Nibs (due to the honeymoon-ish thing) and then for the dog and cat of one of the Soprano's in my choir.

But anyway, amidst all that my box came for the Odd Ducks Harry Potter Swap. OMG you guys. It came from Australia and was huge! Apparently my spoiler asked specifically for me (I assume because I said in my questionnaire that I would love to see what someone could come up with for a potions kit and she had ideas). Just look at this amazingness

Everything all together (well not everything because I had missed three things as of when I took this picture)

Photobucket
Tote with lettered and illustrated instructions for Polyjuice potion.

Potions kit and book

But wait! The potions book was hollow and contained potions vials as well as an antique bunsen burner.

I posted my thank you, to which the sender replied "Wait, did the brass scales and silver knife not make it." Nope they were there too in yet another pocket. And then not as part of the potions kit there had been socks in Ravenclaw colors and a lovely green sock yarn called "Severus loves Lily." I'm trying to decided if it wants to be a lacy scarf to match my winter coat or a pair of socks.

I have a feeling that nothing else will ever top this. (Not that other swap boxes even need to try. I am not that greedy.)
