Love! Love! Love, the Treasures
Yesterday, when I came home from work, I had a postal pick up notice waiting for me. I was so curious wondering what it would turn out to be. I decided I'd go pick it up today before I went to work. I was very excited and couldn't wait to see. When I got to the post office they gave me a box that was plastered with very many stamps-see above-have you ever seen so many on one thing before? How cute is that! This box came all the way from Fulks Run VA USA. As I ripped through the extremely well taped edges of the package with my keys I was wishing I'd thought to bring my camera along for the ride. Unfortately I didn't think it out well enough ahead of time for that. But still ripping through tape. Finally I got the middle flaps and one end seperated and decided to see if I could fit the treasures through the space I'd created. I reached in and felt - bubble wrap! Much bubble wrap came out of the box and then I felt something solid in some tissue paper (YIPPEE!). I unwrapped the small tissue papers treasures to unfold these:
A gorgeous Celestial Seasonings magnet ( I have one that matches so now you've given me the beginning of a collection), some lovely crystals ( As soon as eldest son saw them he wanted them, two striped feathers, a pretty napkin ring and a delicate white napkin.
I also found these treasures wrapped in tissue in the box: a heart shaped tea ball, a little packet of mango tea, and a lovely smelling purple tea light. Nestled near the bottom was this pretty little cup and saucer with little blue flowers made in Germany.
I want to say a huge thank you to the blogger at http://www.artfullyooglebloops.blogspot.com/ who put so much time and thought into making this a delightful OWOH gift. I'm going to go make a cup of mango rooibos tea in my new tea cup while wondering at the kindness and thoughtfulness of you!
