Keeping My Postie Busy

My mailbox was a busy place this last week! In addition to all the usual bills there was treasure to be found. First up was an RAK from Lindsay of Caring Stitcher. Lindsay knows how much I love the UK so when she saw these goodies she knew they had my name written all over them.


Some Diamond Jubilee tea towels, rhinestone studded socks, pens, ribbons and best of all is the little tote. I've already been carrying my lunch to work in the tote and I'm just thrilled to not be using a used plastic grocery sack any more!  Thank you for the sweet gift, Lindsay, I couldn't be more pleased!

Then came my giveaway prize from Angela of Hooked On Stitches. Angela stitched me the Dear Diary design of my choice and finished it into the most beautiful box:



Isn't it gorgeous? You wouldn't believe how PERFECT this thing is! Angela is definitely a finishing pro. Every single detail is amazing. I cannot believe this is mine! I wish you could see this treasure in person. I'm over the moon every time I look at it. Thank you so very much, Angela!

Then a wee thank you gift came today from Annette of California Stitcher. Annette was the winner of my business card giveaway and she promised to send me one when they arrived. I guess she couldn't resist sending a few goodies along with:


Lovely handmade greeting card, some peach tea tucked into a little decorated bag and a few pretty variegated DMC threads. And of course her wonderful card from Printrunner. Thank you, Annette! 

I've been thoroughly spoiled this week, haven't I? 
Blog friends are such fun and I'm so thankful YOU are one of them.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

There's nothing quite like getting goodies in the mail. Everything is lovely.
I was fortunate enough to receive a box done by Angela a couple years ago. She does the best finishing. I know you'll enjoy it.

Great gifties! Sometimes I wonder if the mail person gets annoyed with my deliveries, then I remember reading about how much their 'business' has suffered with cuts lately. Hope they appreciate.
