Haptic Werewolf works magic on 11.11.11. A special gift in the mail!

The Haptic Werewolf and Herr Haptic Erni greet the postal clerks as they hunt up a package that arrived today at my Greek post office. It is a sturdy box measuring 12x14x18 high in centimeters, or if you prefer: about 5x6x7 high in inches. Now a box like that has 6 nice sides...and Erni does a grand job of filling those sides both outside (on the wrapping paper) and inside (on the outside of the box), so there are at least 12 works of art, and the contents have not been revealed yet!

Outside wrapping has stamps and statements:

and end sides have pics of smiling Erni!

INSIDE the wrapping, here is the box top...(and we know that the contents is the Broken Tea Bowl I had been waiting for! Yay!

...and the sides of the box:

Great red sparkle side, and below is side with the Erni's gals...and more sparkle:

Museum side and then Merzbau side...(really like this documentation about Kurt, thanks Erni):

And then to open the box to see the treasues inside:

Yes indeedy, a carefully wrapped BROKEN tea bowl...and surprise CHOCOLATES! Oh, Erni!!

Two "love-chocos" and a broken tea bowl...or is it?

Magic lucky day today: 11.11.11! The world, and some tea bowls, stick with UHU!

Friends...stick together, too. 

And while it cannot now be used for tea or other liquids, this beautiful ceramic tea bowl can embrace my special 9B sticks and pencils and a brush or two! Think of all the good spirits and thoughts this tea bowl can convey to my art sticks! Perfect! Thank you muchly, muchly, muchly Erni! xx

Yes, Erni, there seems to be no dairy/milk products in these choco bars. Very nice taste. A bit of pure choco per day helps build the immunity system, too. So, it might be "Love food", but it is "Healthy" love food ;-)

Hmmmm, the choco! I had a piece of each bar as they are different flavors with  the chocolate. There is NO milk in the product, and one has nice nuts and fruit pieces. Both seem to have coconut milk in them and the taste of anise. But I will savor a piece per day...to make the choco glam last longer ;-) Also "artsy" are the interior cardboard wrappers for the choco bars! "Food for Love"? (...Oh, Erni!)

Nice bowl! And as usual Erni's packaging is artful and art-full.
