I will update all three parcels on this one post (laziness, perhaps.....it is almost my bed time!).
Parcel #1.... from megacharms (ebay). As this vender sells their items in bulk I thought to save money this would work perfectly. I order two sets of 25 of both the beehive and the pear charms. The beehives are exactly the same as from my previous order (different vendor). The pears on the other hand are just weeeeeee tiny things. Not sure at this stage of the game if they will be usable for the wine glass charms or not.
The Pear.....now I have attached a picture of the new 'baby' pears and then one with the original pear for a comparison. As you can see, they are very tiny!
