Today started out kind of crummy: I woke up with a cold and I still had to go to work. The office was cold (Monday, ya know) and the dog spent the entire morning under a quilt next to my chair. I wanted to be there with her = O .
There was a slight commotion when the Fed Ex guy left a package. IT WAS FOR ME! and it wasn't anything that I had ordered.
It was so cutely wrapped. Don't you love that fringe she used?
When I opened it, it was stuffed with treasures.
Even the stocking was full!
She really read my profile. There's a Santa candle holder, a sweet carved-stone covered-box, a Christmas story book, and an angel. Too too sweet!
But there was more.
A bunch of fat quarters and a charm pack. I can't wait to get these under my sewing machine.
She also included the cutest Christmas cocktail napkins and spreaders, a book by one of my favorite authors and an iTunes gift certificate.
HOMEMADE COOKIES!!! The bags were tied with the cleverest ribbon. See it at the bottom: It looks like Santa's belt and belt buckles. The cookies are delicious. You KNOW I had to open them and sample a few (maybe more). I think I remember reading that you should feed a cold. Right?
My SSS swap partner took very good care of me. She fed my soul, my mind, and my tummy.
Today ended up being a very good day after all. Thanks!
Thanks to Suzanne for hosting this fun event. Go check out what other people got from their swap partners. If someone's blog name has *** in front of it, it means their package has arrived and they've blogged about it.
Here's to you having a good day, too!
