What's the best part of blogging?

Well, gifts on a whim!!!

When I first started blogging, I didn't realize how enriching it was going to be in terms of making friends--like the friendship I share with Jen (the Felt Mouse).

Out of the blue the other day, a "thinking of you" package arrived in my mail box.
A package filled with incredible goodies!
Like "confectionery" stationery, and vintage trims.
goodies from jen

Aloha salt and pepper shaker set

Coasters with vintage Hawaiian images, a mug that says "what if I WANT to look cheap?", collectible honey container from the Bee Movie, some fun post its, and some to-die-for Japanese fabric!

Also copies of Adorn Magazine, Blueprint, Romantic Homes, Cottage Living, and Imaginate.
And some amazing wicker cone-shapes (I LOVE cones) with pretty twisted wire handles, that I scanned but forgot to upload. But they are awesome. Love love love.

And, last but not least, the piece de resistance...
Cat tongue-shaped chocolates.
