Bloggy Love In The Mailbox

 I came home today to discover and envelope of bloggy love in my mailbox.  Dear Carol from Art and Sand sent me a surprise package!  When she and I "met" we connected right away and she has become a treasured blogland friend.  Blogging is so amazing that way.  How else would we connect with our wonderful tribe that we would never meet otherwise??
The envelope was packed with embellishments, envelopes and little trinkets.  She nailed my tastes perfectly! She is from southern California so I adore the playing card from her hood.
 Hope - what better gift could you receive, especially when it is tied up in a stamped muslin bag.
 I love the way she customized the bag with her own artwork, just for me.
How perfect is this!
Thank you, Carol, for your generosity and most especially for your friendship.  You are a treasure!

I didn't expect to see a blog post already about the package. Now I remember some of the things I sent.

I hope to see them on the pages of your altered books.

I am glad you like your treats.

Oh my, what wonderful goodies in that envelope! They look like something you would show from one of your junking trips. The personalized bag is my favorite. That is a special one of a kind just for you gift.
