Yay! I Got a Package from Mimi Yesterday!!

Look at all the goodies she sent me! I love them! She sent me some stamps from her collection when she found out I collect stamps with my son. (After seeing the stamps, though, I don't know if I want him to have them.) I might give him a couple and keep the rest. I want to get a nice 'stamp collecting' book to put them in. There are some from Singapore, Filipinas, and a couple I don't know. But they are all really colorful and pretty! Thank you Mimi. :) Mimi also sent me a crocheted necklace she made :0 ~ I love it!! AND, a matching beaded bracelet, too. I have a lavendar sweater I could wear these with. (It's hand wash, though, and I need to wash it...) :p And inside the card, (I felt that it was thick) is a 'T' Mimi crocheted, from her crocheted letter collection! I have been secretly wanting one of these since I saw her post about them! Now I have my very own 'T'- I love it, Mimi, thank you so much! And, she sent a UFO (the black and white and yellow striped bag.) Inside the letter it says, 'can you guess what it is and what pattern I used?' I could not for the life of me. I asked the kids. (Whenever I can't figure something out, they usually can!) And the nine year old said, 'It looks like a bee'. I said, 'Yea, it does kinda.' Some kind of bee purse or pouch... Well it is a bee cellphone purse. I think it's cute, and I might just look the pattern up at CPC and see what else there is to finish it... :) And, last but definitely not least! Mimi sent me my very own copy of her 'Loopy Flowers' pattern!! YAY! I had one via email, but to have my own copy is much cooler! Thank you so much for everything, Mimi. I love it all. I have been getting spoiled this week with the packages. Monday Blossom came, Wednesday I got the toy swap box, Thursday I got Mimi's package, and today I am supposed to get something Priority Mail from my brother! He didn't say what it was, so it will be a surprise. I am truly spoiled this week. I guess 'When it Rains, it Pours' is a true saying... (This time in a good way!) :)

What a great package. The jewelry is beautiful :)

Wow, Tina what wonderful surprises you got this week! I'm so glad you loved what I sent :D

Tina said...

I do, Mimi! Thank you again. I still haven't decided where to put or what to do with the 'T', but I will find somewhere special. :)

Thanks for stopping by, Lynn! I was so surprised to get one of Mimi's beautiful crocheted necklaces, too. I have been wanting to make one since I saw them on her blog, but... my WIP pile is too big already! :)

Btw, I forgot to comment on the stamps. Espana stamps are from Spain (where my parents married and where I was born). I think I also included a stamp from China ;)

Ooo! Cool! I have quite a few from Singapore, is that China? (I need to Google, eh?) ;)
