Surprise in the Mail

I have great friends. Really great friends. But sometimes they surprise me with their greatness.
I got a surprise package in the mail from my pal Michelle. I had no idea it was coming and she filled it with some cool goodies. This gal knows what I like. Look at what I got!

Cherry shelf liners! My kitchen has cherries all over it and I told Michelle I was looking for something like this and she found it! I seriously can't wait to use this.

And these little lovelies! A pair of vintage measuring cups. I love them because they are really solid and unlike any other I have seen.

Holiday cookie cutters. I'm totally getting into baking and Michelle has often inspired me. So she is feeding my growing addiction.

Seriously?! How cute is this dish towel? This is the 3rd dishtowel she has sent me and she always finds the cutest ones!

And to top it all off these cute cherry note cards!

Look! Even the back is cute!
How sweet is this? Thanks TU. Really. You made my day.

Sew happy

I wanted to have a handmade Christmas. I wanted to make each of my loved one's a gift to show how much I care. I'm so funny. That SO did not happen. I did however make one really cool gift.

Chapstick holder.

Handmade by ME!

I picked Aunt C's name for Christmas this year and I knew just what I wanted to make her. I had seen a bag like this in a magazine and had even made one similiar to it for a swap a did a few months ago. However this time it was much more time consuming and for whatever reason just seem to keep stumping me. I did however finally finish it and I am very pleased with the results. So cute I almost kept it for myself!

Took her forever to figure out I made it!

I came across this little concept on this blog and I thought how cool is this? I LOVE to get stuff in the mail. It totally makes my day. And to have a surprise package show up! I would be in heaven.

So I thought why not PIF myself? Would you like to receive a surprise gift from me, on a surprise date, in the next 365 days?

Here are the rules:

1. Leave a comment on my blog that says you want to play. The first three peeps to comment get a surprise package from me! Make sure you leave your contact info if I don't have it already!

2. Do the same thing on your blog!The first three folks who leave a comment and commit to doing this on their blog, too, will get a surprise from YOU at a surprise time in the next 365 days!

Hangin' with my Momma

The last weekend in May my mom came to visit me. She was our very first in our little marital home. It was so nice to have Momma here visiting. We had such a great time. One of the things that we did was go to tea. My momma LOVES her some English Tea Service. So as part of her Mother's Day gift I took her tea.
She loved it. And she was SHOCKED by my other surprise. Little did she know that she brought it with her from my wedding photographer. I was able to get my mom a parents album of my wedding album (Don't worry! I will SO be blogging about that later!) My mom had really wanted one and wasn't able to purchase it so she was so surprised when she saw her album. She really, really loved it and it made me so happy I was able to give it to her.

While she was here we also did a little shopping, got some pedicure's, ate some yummy food. You know all the usuals. I'm so glad she came and I can't wait until she visits again!
