8/2/08 The unposted pictures of July...

In my crazy busy month of July, I have been taking some bento photos, but not getting them uploaded. My apologies, but here they are!! You'll have to guess at some of the ingredients - most are self explanitory - we have been doing a lot of grilling with a lot of left overs, so the dogs have been adequately represented!!

Love the palm tree boxes!!

Snack bags for Tom!!

8/2/08 Swap packages recieved!!

I have been super busy and haven't had time to list in awhile - but I have been taking some pictures!!
First up - swap recived from May in Australia!! This was through the bento swap group on flickr

Fun lot of things, including flamingo picks!! The fish napkins are too funny and everything can be used for bento!! Check out the little Monokuro Boo change purse!

Next up...the wammy doodle package from Myria. I always order from her fantastic store - - this time, we did a swap instead!!As I opened the box...the little sticker said "wait" - the suspense was killing me, so I couldn't wait any longer...

All the parcels so nicely wrapped...

The unwrapped explosion!! Amazing bento goodness...My favorite Boo items, many fun new bento supplies, cute bento box cleaning items (sponge & brush guy), and some coveted mister donut boxes!!! She knows I collect these and she found some WONDERFUL ones for my collection!!

The mister donut boxes...

The best sauce/mayo cups ever!!

And of course the funny sayings on the boxes...
