Look what came in the mail today!

My first SP package!

"First?", you ask. Why yes. The one I posted earlier was the second, because the first was lost. Lost in the mail. But today it showed up at my door, nearly 2 months after being mailed, all nonchalant and not explaining where it had been all that time.

You can imagine I was excited to see all these nicely wrapped goodies pouring out. :) I made quick work of unwrapping them and discovered this:

From left:

Maple fudge above an adorable card, two skeins of beautiful blue Atacama Alpaca, Masala Chai (yummy, my favorite!), knitting notecards with a little sheep magnet on top, and "groovy" rubber stamps. One of the stamps says "Fab!" :)

Thank you so much SP, I love all my goodies and I'm so glad the package was not missing forever!

The little tart was probably holed up with some burly banker's box the whole time. She looks like she came out of the experience with only a little (ahem) denting.

Whew! I was worried she'd flitted off for good with that airheaded FedEx bubble envelope!

Enjoy your treats - you certainly waited patiently enough for them. Hope you love the teal-y blues of the Atcama.

Isn't that hilarious, one time ages ago, when I worked for an economist, we received a book that had been mailed over 5 years earlier. It was marked "Sea Mail". It came from some little obscure country.

I love the container that the present came in! I have seen those wine boxes and thought to myself they would make a good needle holder~

thanks for stopping by and leaving me a little note-
