A Sweet Surprise

Lookie what I found waiting for me on my step this morning!! 
Cody & I had ran to McDonald's for some breakfast (yummy!) & when we got back a big ol box was on my step! I thought it was from a swap I'm doing right now but nope ~ it was from Linda!!  Look at all the goodies she got inside of this box ~ I've never seen anyone who can pack like her! :O)

some wonderful fabric boxes, a basket, some labels, a sweet peppermint candle, a very nice ditty bag & some really cute mini ornaments :O)

a very cute apple stool

some recipe cards, cookie cutters, a pancake maker shaped like a shamrock (the kid was impressed with this!), a candle, a candle ring, some sweet lil hearts, a twig ball & my sweet lil pin keep
(I don't have any of the cookie cutters she sent me! yea! I've been thinking about some salt dough bowl fillers the last few days ~ maybe I'll get crackin now!)

Code had to help open up my box :) ~ he thought we had gotten another "sample" in the mail (we got a mini box of Cheerios the other day & you'd thought he got a new toy he was so amused!)

Look at these beautiful fabric boxes ~ they look perfect on my new shelf in my bedroom ~ just what I needed there! (I'm "stuck" on the finishing details ~ hopefully I can finish up this weekend tho & share w/you guys)

I love this darling pin keep ~ so very cute! Cody liked it too ~ he tried to talk me out of it ~ said the "jewel" on the front would make "cool treasure" lol
a perfectly prim basket

"Friends are God's way of taking care of us."
Linda ~ thank you again! You are truly a sweet, sweet person.  You brightened my day! I've been feeling kinda blah & uninspired again & you really made me smile.  Thank you so much for being my blogging friend!

I I hope to be a better blogger & post more next week.  Till then I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Looks like Christmas came early for you. Linda Claus is really trying to outdo Santa. Love the fabric boxes and all the goodies she sent.
It is amazing that it all fit in that box.

Didn't realize the box would be posted. I'd have covered it with brown paper! I'm not very good at wrapping but I keep packing until the box is full! LOL
I am glad to hear you like the things I gathered for you. It was fun. I love to make people smile.
