“My Happy List” A box filled with happiness!

My blog buddy, Susie from She Junks and I have been friends and penpals for a long time. And a couple of weeks ago she surprised me with GIFTS!


It was a box full of goodies that made me feel like a little girl at Christmas time.


Each one was gift wrapped with a hand made tag.


We are not a big gift giving family so receiving goodies in the mail has really been special to me.


She chose each item with me in mind and even sent some of the beautiful woodworking specialties that her husband makes.


I feel so honored to have her as a best friend and I appreciate the thoughtfulness.


I’m enjoying each and every gift!


Thanks Susie and Hubby!

I’m joining Ricki Jill HERE

with my happy list!

Sunshine mail is the best, and blogging friends have showered me with more gifts than any I know elsewhere. Love all the details. Enjoy it all, friend.

Wow! I don't know where to start with what I like the most, lol!
I've always loved getting packages of goodies in the mail as well... there is just something so special about the act and well, of course the goodies :D
Those wood worked items are certainly gorgeous. Do you know if her hubby sells them online? I'm looking for something pretty to hold all of my crochet hooks.
Thanks for the sweet comments and for the visit to my blog :D

I had one gal buy me a victorian duve and curtains come from Misssippi to Canada where I . To match and a table cloth also. Was 100 dollars shipping fee marked on the box. I met her on a art program and we hit it off good.

I was in awe. And it was a surprise alright. Another gal sent me my hot iron blower to make sparkles on a card. along wit the ink pad and a wee bag. Instructions of cours. Took awhile to handle it. I was blowing sparkles all over me and the floor. Now smart. I do it in a box.

She was collecting Canadian stamps and other stamps from Holland.
