Chinese New Year Happy Mail

Cathy at ma vie trouvee is enjoying all the Chinese New Year festivities in Singapore and included me in the celebration with this surprise package in the mail.  This is the year of the Goat and I learned that I am a goat because I was born in 1955.  There I said it.  I am old enough to know better and I am a goat.  It is also called the year of the Ram, which is sort of a goat that is old enough to know better.  8+)
Most of the papers are envelopes which are used for New Year's gifts.  She also included this neat charm in the shape of a ram.
This is just the sweetest face!  Visit her blog (link above) to learn more about the Chinese New Year.  Cathy has a unique way of embracing every culture she encounters and shares so much fascinating information on her blog.
Thank you, Cathy, for thinking of me.  Wishing you and D a very Happy New Year!
