OOOOH The Wells Fargo Wagon is aa comin to town......
Well it wasn't the Wells Fargo wagon but it was even better!!! Jackie D and ED made a rushed trip down from the Northernlands this week and they had treats!! Yipeee!! :) One of my very bestest Bloglandian sisters Lulu of Coastal Sisters sent me a most wonderful ,stupendous . and amazing just because I care parcel!!!!! Oh it was bursting with all manner of lushes art supplies.
First I have to show you the earrings she created for me to wear for Mette&Joe's wedding. Remember I purchased that lovely dark blue leaf print dress??? Well just look at these incredible earrings, the perfect shape and color!!! Oh Lulu they are exactly what I had in mind!!!
When I pulled back the flaps I saw wonderful things!!
Glass, clay, stone and crystal beads. Wonderful metal findings. Rhinestones and charms!! Copper foil & 2 sizes of glass slides!! Remember my whining a couple of months ago about not being able to find copper foil ??? Hmmmm I guess this means I have no excuses any more when it comes to making charms huh??? :)
Oye Lulu how did you lift this box up to the counter???? Jackie said you must have sent bricks as heavy as the box was!! Not bricks just ART Magazines YAAAA HOOOO Happy Dance!!!!
And in the very bottom a huge package of cutie putootie stickers a box of memory frames and a net bag of SEA SHELLs from Topsail Island N.C. I love them and the coolest thing about them is that your shells on the Atlantic side of this continent look just like the shell I have on the Pacific side of the continent!!! How very cool is that????
THANK YOU ever so much Little Sis I can't tell you how precious this parcel of love is to me. :) Because of the difficulty with the mail service (rather the lack of) it becomes almost impossible for me to participate in exchanges, giveaways or anything that has a time constraint on it. The major reason why I haven't had a giveaway since OWOH, is the inconsistencies and frustrations of getting a parcel to the States to be mailed in any kind of time frame. If it were not for my dear friend Jackie D nothing would go up or come down. That being said I know how difficult and frustrating it is for those up north to get a parcel to us, so when I do receive one from the States, Australia, or even Europe I am so amazed, thankful and humbled to know that you took the time and care to do this for me :)
Oh gosh could someone pass the box of tissues please :) I think I need to head off to bed now with one of my new art magazines, so my wish for all of you is to have a most audacious today or tomorrow depending on where in the world you are ;)
