CA CHING! I HIT THE JACKPOT!!

I think my mailman has pulled a muscle! *grins* I have never made it a secret....I love snail mail. There is just something so special about getting mail. Knowing that someone took the time to send you something....there is just nothing in the world like it.

And boy hidey! Have I got mail!

Lovestoexperiment had this sweet SWEET sheep soap sent to me! Isn't it just adorable!!! He is just adorable and smells so so good!

Remember the apron swap that I was in?? I showed you M2 modeling my apron and Rach modeling disgust?This is the swap package that I sent to Karen in Canada. She was a first time swapper but you sure could not tell by what she sent to me! OMG!! First off, my very very own apron! I do not have an apron that was not bought and I have never made myself an apron. I am in love with this one! Sweet black and white checks! Not only did she send me an apron, she sent a tissue holder, a nature CD, a Canadian patch, wine candy (tastes sort of like out gummies), and a Canadian Living magazine.

Check out my initial on the pocket!!! Isn't is so cute!

And look what else she sent to me! A little loon call. He is just adorable and sitting on my desk as we speak. I am afraid to try him out for fear of call up 2 legged loons instead of winged loons! *snickers*
This was a *fill the envelope* swap that I was in over at greenbeanbaby's. My swap partner lives in Singapore and WOW can she stuff an envelope!! She sent me all sorts of sweet ephemera and candies (what? you cannot see them in the pic? Where in the world did they go? "she says with her mouth full") She sent me papers, tapes, candies (the white chocolate was Divine!!), the polka dots is material, an Asian cookbook and just tons of wonderful things!!
Our own sweet Lorna sent me the most calming CD that I own. I have played it over and over and I am just in love with it. It makes me feel centered and closer to Lorna. She also sent me that wonderful little bookmark!
Last....but CERTAINLY not least! Bunnybunster, who is fairly new to this blog, sent me a package that sure surprised me! I was JELLIED!! *snickers* She sent me grape jelly that she MADE people!! And it is the prettiest jewel color! AND she sent me BATH AND BODY WORKS! She sent me Black Raspberry shower gel, body lotion and perfume spray. OMG...I am the bestest smelling probation officer around. I am taking the jelly with me to New Mexico and Flutterby and I are going to EAT IT ALL UP!!
Just a few weeks ago I was moping around and whining about being alone....and ya'll show me over and over and over again that I am not alone. You do it by your snail mail, emails, gifts and comments. Thank you ALL so much for taking the time. It has made a difference to me.

  8. MINDY!!!

    We heard this story while getting ready for work this morning and thought of you.

    And we knew you would've never exhibited such a lack of regard for parking regulations had you been the one behind the wheel of the Weinermobile.

  29. No, I think she's trying to see how many comments she can collect on one post. That's what I think. Hmmmph.

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOL David I was coming in here this morning to say that EXACT THING! I am thinking we should just ignore her little bit of emotional blackmail. But of course in saying all this I just added to her growing list of comments.
