(Alright. I truly am terrible and this month has gotten away from me. Between the house-selling and moving and residency appointment and unpacking and the general insanity that has been the past month or so, I sort of turned in Giftfest and then promptly forgot it was happening. Because I am terrible.)
My gift posted and IT IS AMAZING AND PERFECT AND I AM SO SO SO SO HAPPY.
See, I got a mystery gift in the mail. Sender's name was a bit illegible, the packing list smeared with damp. Truly, it was a Mystery.
And my husband, practical man that he is, said no Mystery Packages until Christmas.
And of course, when I did realise my gift had posted on SSHG-Giftfest, and THAT THAT WAS WHAT WAS PROBABLY IN THE MYSTERY PACKAGE I promptly lost my shit and my husband is the best best best best BEST ever because he did this for me.
kerravonsen, darling, you made my written up present come to life, so my husband wanted to show you just how much we appreciate it....
Ex-Professor Snape hangs out in the library...and of course Crookshanks is there. (He insisted. He also insisted on stealing my Slytherin socks. Silly man.)
(Opening the mystery package, while I bounced around taking photos like a lunatic...)
(Really? A present for Severus Snape?)
Whatever can Miss Granger have gotten him?
Carefully peeling back the beautiful paper...
I LOVE THE TAG!! (it's going to go on my super special craft room bulletin board!!)
Snape loves the scarf - won't let me touch it and tells me it is soft, soft, soft, just like the story! (he's read it all...)
Trying things on for size...he says. Scarf-thief!! (Well I guess technically it's Snape's, so...?)
Just another loop...
A perfect fit!!!
You made Snape smile!!! :-D
I LOVE IT!!!! (And I don't look entirely crazed here lol) IT'S SO SOFT! SO FLUFFY!! I'M GOING TO LOVE IT FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND I AM GOING TO WEAR IT TOMORROW WHEN I GO OUT I wore it tonight until I started cooking lol
I guess I count as a Muggle-clothes Granger, right? Sharing our beautiful scarf!!
Smiles all around!!! ♥♥
(SERIOUSLY SO HAPPY!!!)
(And Pensieve loves the paper! She sat in it for a while, very very happy with the world.)
Happy Snangers :)
Smoochy OTP time!
in short... I LOVE MY PRESENT!!! IT IS SO AMAZING AND WELL-LOVED!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!
