Wonderful Surprises - Packages

I was so thrilled when my DH came in with the mail today and I had 3 packages. Three!!! What fun, I love getting packages don't you. I was so lucky to win another one of the Christmas In July giveaways. This one was from Printersdevil @ Playing Dishes. Now I hardly ever win anything, so to win two giveaways is just unreal. I love it. Thank you so much Printersdevil. I am absolutely thrilled.

This is the wonderful Fedex package that came, and can you believe it a gorgeous tablerunner. It is a wonderful cream color with tassels and a beautiful scroll design.

Just look at how pretty the design glitters. It very softly shines with the finest gold threads. Now you know for sure that this will be used at Christmas and I'm also thinking this will be perfect for the upcoming all white tablescape party that Cuisine Kathleen is having on the 25th. You can click on the button on my sidebar to find out all the details. Now you know you will all want to participate.

Then most of you already know that Lynette from Lynett's L.A.M. has opened an Etsy shop. She makes wonderful things and you really need to check it out. We have been friends from way back at the begging of RMS, and she is the sweetest lady in the world. I ordered this lovely "Welcome" from her. Isn't it pretty, and look how beautifully she boxed it up. Thanks Lynette, I just love it.

Then since I just had a birthday and became way older than dirt, another friend of mine from RMS and Micasa sent me this gorgeous card and the most beautiful silver necklace with my initial "M" in silver on a beautiful black background. I am so thrilled and just absolutely love it. I will wear it everywhere. This wonderful gift came from my friend Pat, now she doesn't have a blog, but she does check all of you guys out and she leaves comments, so when you see her name, then you'll know who the sweet person is.

It is amazing as others have said that you can meet people over the internet and feel so close to them and care so much about them. I have so enjoyed all of blogland and really enjoy all the wonderful friendships we share here. Thank you again to all my wonderful "internet" friends. I really cherish your friendship.

Hugs, Marty

  19. Hi Marty! What great presents you got! Don't you love getting things in the mail. It just makes your day so to speak! Woo hoo!
    Have a lovely day.

  20. So happy you won Printer's Devil give away! And the necklace is lovely too!
    It amazes me how generous bloggers are.
    And you deserve the lovely things you got.
    Thanks so much for the mention of my WHITE event. You are a sweetheart!

  21. Marty, I am so glad that you received the tablerunner. I left the little cards at home when I went to the postal center with my 10 packages! I was so intent on not forgetting anything and I forgot the cards of all things! I'm sorry it took so long. Life got in my way with some major alterations to my family. (explanation on my blogs) If you don't mind, I made do a post with links back to these photos. I meant to take photos of everything to post before I mailed things. I have photos of many of the things, but not the tablerunner or the matching tablecloth that Shutterbugs won. I would really like to show off the things and comments from winners. I agree on how awesome a blogging family we have here. With the volume of bloggers it is amazing of all the wonderful giveaways. I have won numerous ones myself and have received everything except two items. I just love blogging! Happy belated birthday, my friend!
