I have received many beautiful packages in the last few weeks.
A surprise package from Sabiha. Just look at all these treasures! A teensy little brush and sponge, a gorgeous wooden box, a beautifully painted canister, a wonderful plant, a jar of lollies, a handle for my fridge, a sign, teensy seashells, alphabetti and my favourites - two tiny bags one of tea and one of coffee! Thank you Sabiha! And from Rosanna, another surprise this beautiful chair and cushion, it looks so comfortable I'd like to curl up in it now with a good book. And two postcards showing the sights of the city where she lives. Look Susan, it is GENOVA!!! LOL, LOL, LOL!!!! And for Liberty and Noah Rosanna sent some special gooey stuff that blows up into a balloon. Little did she know that blowing things up is one of Liberty's favourite things to do! A strange pastime I know! Thank you Rosanna, that was fun!!
And Katie's sweet daughter, Cora, was at the Virginia Zoo and saw this prairie dog magnet and thought I should have it! Thank you Cora, I have never seen a prairie dog before!
