I opened my mailbox the other day to the most wonderful surprise! This girl, Tracy, from cottonpickincute sent me a box to-end-all-boxes. I mean, the girl spoiled me rotten!
Sorry for the poor pictures, it's really hard to take good shots when one is dancing around.
I mean, just look at what was in there!!!
Look at the beautiful packaging!
(Okay, I totally have to confess... My grandma used to save wrapping paper from Christmas, and then she would iron it for use at a later date. Yeah- we totally made fun of her for that, even though we loved her dearly... She was a wonderful grandma, but ironing wrapping paper to a kid is kind of out there. Well, guess who is now not only ironing that original letter from the 1940's but going to make copies of it too? Just a warning, never make fun of grandma!!!)
To totally understand and appreciate this package, you have to read here. It's a tribute to my dreams...
Little did Tracy know that I was actually thinking I could resurrect a discus for my attempt. Guess who was the champion discus thrower in the family? ( Yes Libbie was pretty good also)
The fact that my abs look remarkably similar to that in the statue is purely a coincidence...
Adorable handmade owl, love those eyes!
And the details on these bookmarks, could they be any sweeter? And does Tracy know how much I love to read?
Can you believe the fabulous apron?
(I snagged the pic from her site as she took a much better picture than I did. Thanks Tracy!!!)
It was the most thoughtful package that I have ever received. There was also a CD, some soap, the sweetest letter and a darling little bottle of lavender. The details Tracy put into this package are stunning. Gotta love that girl! She sure knows how to make a girl feel special!
