Delightful Goodies!

Yesterday was a great surprise as it was a *good mail day*, and I have to admit, with my *surprises* of late, a nice one was welcomed! The items below are strictly in the order I opened them!
First, a box from the Delightful Deb......and I wondered what on earth could it be? Had Milo escaped??? (that was a fear....)
But no, it was the very charming and personable Perriquin Pumpkin. Pam's little Skellie girl took an immediate liking to him, and Frida is keeping a motherly eye on things.......but I don't think there will be mischief!  ;-)


Thank you Deb!!! He makes me smile each time I look over at him, as he is right beside the computer desk!
Then the second package I opened was from Jan at Laughing Dog Arts and I was careful opening it as it was wrapped in brown paper stamped with all sorts of interesting designs....yes it will be saved for collage!
A beautiful hand beaded Sacred Heart Pin, with a milagro in the center, and gold beads in the flame that I could not get to show in the photo......trust me......it glows!


Wrapped around it, to keep it safe in the mail, was the following tea towel, which says it ALL!!!! (yes, Jan knows me far too well! LOL!!!!)



I am not sure after that quote there is any more I can say!
Yes, there is......THANK YOU GIRLS! Your timing couldn't have been any better for lifting my spirits and making me smile and feel the outreach of love from miles and miles away.
Sometimes, living in the middle of nowhere, being cloistered with work in the studio and not getting out, life gets far to quiet and lonely and yes, unfortunately, I have to do that to finish large projects.
And then there are beams of sunlight that come in on the wing and remind me I am not alone and there are wonderful people on the *other* side of my blog page~~~reading, laughing, commenting, and gauging how close I am to being sent off to the local mental facility...LOL! (joking...just joking....don't give anyone ideas....)
Seriously, thanks. Many, many times over.
Smiles are priceless.

Pax....

Oh what AWESOME gifts! Beautiful and so glad you received them when you did. I think too how life was a bit lonely until I discovered 'the bloggers'. Y'all are like a secret society; an underground railroad of support. Cool...

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Yes, Elena....we are an underground society! LOL!!!
And maybe that is a good thing? ;D
heeheehee!

XXOO~~♥

Jan said...

Doesn't it just figure that you get two in one day instead of one each on consecutive days? Glad you enjoyed your gifts and gladder that they helped bring a smile to your face as you hobble around on one foot. You take care my friend!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Yep Jan...that's always how it is!
I am a smiling fool..... :)
And that is just FINE!!!!

Mille Grazie!
XXOO~~♥

Baldie said...

Finally! A comment section! I have been reading your misadventures! See what happens if you become a recluse? No one to shout at you "Hey! Watch out for that hole!"

So wonderful to open packages from thoughtful friends! I christened mine Pumkin Belle and she is my new pen holder!

Have a beautiful Sunday! TSUP! TSUP!!!

Baldie said...

ACK! I mean her name is PUMPKIN BELLE!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

ROFLMAO!!!!

I lookied at the name *Baldie* and said....well, never mind what I said.....and then it clicked! I am so slow....
Yes, reclusing (is that a word?) Sucks but sometimes my poor brain will only function if I put blinders on it! LOL!!!
I think we both are most delightfully fortunate to have the Pumpkin Kin!!!
Okay, yes, I need someone to shout to watch out for the hole, the door, the steps, ad infinitum, ad nauseaum......

TSUP! TSUP! ♥♥♥
Anne....Gimpy

Baldie said...

You need a bearded man. I shall grow some hair and return with a beard, later. Tsup!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

If you can grow a beard that fast, I know ment that will be searching you out for the secret!!!! LOL!!!
I am just now having breakfast; watched church on-line and Steve really cut a rug today--sermon and praise band were AWESOME!

Come back with hair....*wink* *wink*.....LOL!!!!

Gloria said...

Oh how awesome all your gifts are. Enjoy them all. Hope your foot is doing better. Take care.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Gloria!

I am feeling better; I think I have overdone it a bit today, but also got studio work done, soooooo, that's GOOD, right??? ;D
Yep, AWESOME GOODIES!
Actually, I need that tea-towel printed on a shirt.... LOL!

So where DOES a person get tea towels like that? Besides in your mailbox, that is. I must be shopping in all the wrong places.

Bitchingly yours, Karen

You can get the towels at www.jackscountrystore.com Click on Kitchen then click on refine results and choose kitchen linens. You will have to go through all 6 or 7 pages to see all the hilarious towels because they are not listed together but instead are alphabetical according to the saying written on them. Like "Drink Coffee! Do stupid things faster with more energy!" and "If you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kitchen" or "Beer will change the world! I don't know how, but it will" many more. Jacks has so many cool items, it is worth looking around the web site.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

OMGosh Jan, I am going to have to bookmark that and check it out.
I personally am for "Beer Will Save The World!" LOL!!!
But only if it's Abita or Dixie.... hahahahaha!!!!

XXOO~~♥
