Surprise Swap - Don't Tell!!

Shhhhhhhh....... this is a surprise for someone and I don't want her to know. It's a swap and I made this little box for her. Shhhhhhhhhh.... It contains pretty rose leaves, lot of little tags, which I think she'll love and a little "bling" pumpkin of felt and PINK, PinK, Pink, pInk..............did I mention it is P I N K?!?! Oh, I covered the box with just the prettiest pink toile on bottom and the lid is a Waverly pink dot, and a pretty rosey print around the rim. Then it has a paper rose on top resting atop some pink bridal tulle with organza bow and little tags on the outside. And it smells sooooo good with an Evelyn & Crabtree rose oil in it, a pink crystal prism, rhinestones, a ribbon rose and pretty yarns on back and also a pretty hanging ornament with glitter on it so she can hang it in her pretty home. I stuff these will a very secret ingredient that truly permeates for a very, very long time. Shhhhhhhhhh......don't tell her. She doesn't read blogs I think so it'll be our secret, right?!?! Huh, right?!?! ;-)

A Mail Delivery Today!

I rarely use the postal service anymore. I pay everything on line. I think most of us now do most things on line that years ago we did through the post office. I know I do! But it is still a "thrill" for me to receive personal letters, cards or packages from our mail lady. She is very, very sweet and always rings my bell for items not fitting into the mail box. Soooooo........look what she brought me today. I purchased this beautiful sign from Lorena at 2chicfriends on ebay. She put in a darling little painted Christmas ornament also. She's such a sweetheart! Then I received this little tag from Karla. It was wrapped in an old page from a book. I just might use the page on one of my tags also. It was so nostalgic and "time worn" just enough! Delightful, ladies! I'll treasure them. Thank you for the gifts, but also for the feelings that came when I received and opened them. I am well loved, chickadees, well loved. :-)
