I've had some amazing lost
experiences within the past few days. Thought I'd share them with you. This may take awhile, so pour yourself a cup of coffee, and get your comfy sweats on :)
I was walking down the street one day and I said, "Universe, I really need a pair of sunglasses. It's so bright here..." A few days later, the DB took wee man to the playground and he found
I'm a dork, you say? Why yes I am! Thanks for noticing! These sunglasses are soooo not me, but you know what? They were free and I'll wear the crap out of them! ...well, maybe not in Ireland. They may think I'm some huge famous rockstar or something... :P
I also found
these earings that were lost
...under a bunch of junkmail on the dining room table...it's so hard to find good help these days...wow, I really do live in fantasyland...rockstar, maid, what's next? Anyway, my bestest friend in the whole wide world sent them to me last week. They're stirling silver with Tiger Eye and Moonstone- my favorite :) She found
them in a vintage store and knew they belonged to me...isn't she brilliant? Thanks Misty!
Two days ago, I opened my mailbox and found
They're stroopwafels from Holland. A very thoughtful knitter who has stopped by my store a few times, sent them as a thank you gift for shipping international. Wasn't that thoughtful? I will totally work for cookies! They're like little waffles with caramel in between. Eli reeeeeally liked them. Pay no attention to the blue spot on his nose...he got into my nailpolish that day...Thanks so much Jenneke!
I also found
this in the mail:
What traveling sock knitter would be complete without it? *grin*
Last but certainly not least, I opened up my door yesterday and found
the most awesome box of goodies that my KTC swap partner sent me. This was such an awesome surprise! Before I list the items, I must first make mention of how well Sarah
did putting this together- she covered all the bases and then some- Inside I found two books, yes folks, two books- The Squires Tale by Gerald Morris and The Secret of Jin-Shei by Alma Alexander- the spooky/funny part to this is that a few days ago, I told myself I needed to find
two books to bring with me to Ireland. Now that's covered! I also found
a GORGEOUS skein of recycled sari silk from frabjous fibers. This was so cool to discover!! I have yet to work with sari silk and now I get the chance! There was also a tin of ginger-lime tea which is supposed to make a wonderful sun tea (she definitely sent it to the right place!), a package of currant scone mix, Patchouli soap in all these cool swirling colors (good call!), a tin of tangerine lip butter, a pack of book plates, a small pad of paper, and the most perfect gift in the world for my little guy- a retractable sewers tape measure...whew...I think I covered it all! Note: not all items are shown in photo, because they mysteriously became the property of the little man and "moved"...Thank you soooooo very much Sarah- you really outdid yourself and I hope you enjoy your package as well!
OK, I think I'm up to date- have a fabulous weekend!
