with a little help
from my bloggy friends....
i can't believe it - but i have MORE mail to show you... and honestly i can say that the kindness of you blog friends has kept me going these last few weeks. often at my wits end i would return home to find a box.... sometimes i'd wait until after dinner to open them so i could savor the contents.... i feel spoiled, pampered and loved..... and it's not just the physical objects you send, but the words and the thoughts too. there is such an understanding here... blair was just talking about it.... it's overwhelming. so i can't say it enough.... THANK YOU all so much.....
above was my amazing package from a very sly fox . i am so happy to have met you dear ashb.... and even happier that we share in the bookclub ! i am wearing that scarf tomorrow even if it's 80 degrees out! the fabrics are so good!!
but wait... there's more [remember ginzu knives?]
my most favorite bug sent me a rhapsody in green. she knew i was going away this weekend and knows i love green... and since she is always so well coordinated..... she sent:
do you SEE the tonka bag? no really - do you SEE THAT??
inside the luggage:
go ahead and roll your eyes alicia it's another coat for my collection. but amazingly the train case came w/ all the original packaging... the little purse... the shower cap!! the keys!! wow
and be careful what you say around her - i joked all i needed were vintage green glasses and these showed up:
sigh.... will i not be the coolest traveller ever?
and because in another life i WAS an artist... oh wait... i still am, right? i mean i'm installing that show at mira costa college this weekend.... here's a piece that made it's journey safe and sound.... i hope to get back into the blogging stride this week.... i actually have news to report... things to share.....
happy hump day!
