Urban Home Swap - Received

Words cannot being to describe how absolutely appropriate this is for me. I used to work on video games for a living. I used to collect vintage game consoles like Atari, Colecovision and Odyssey. I used to love Space Invaders and would travel around the US and Germany visiting pinball and video game shows. (seriously) I had no idea that I wanted or needed this. Jo is the world's best stalker though and wanted to make something that both I and Mr Badskirt would love. She's knocked it out of the park.


When she first posted a photo, I think my comment was a very greedy "please let it be for me. please let it be for me. please let it be for me." seriously greedy and hopeful with no expectations at all as I hadn't mentioned games in my list. How freaking lucky am I?

    Too good. I've decided to do a handmade Christmas here and have been puzzling over what to make my husband. Something inspired by this might just do it!! You're so lucky

    I think I need a gold medal in cyber-stalking for this one!

    Loove it!!! What a wondeful gift, perfect for a videogame fan. My hubby has seen your pic and wants one for herself. He can believe you're a console collector, really pleased because he either.
