Mail Call!

Hubby brought in yesterdays mail when he went out for pizza!  In it were 3 packages just for me!!

I won Claire's giveaway this past week and one of the packages was the fabric I won! I think I shall make a mug rug with this! Thank you Claire!

I also won a book over on Madame Samm's blog! She is doing a series on Books For Women the whole month of December and I won this book from a few days ago!

Two other books from the series have caught my interest so I ordered them from Amazon!

I received a package a few days ago from Canada!  Inside was this cute coin purse!  Madame Samm surprised me with it!  I love that the woman on the fabric is blonde - just like me!  Thank you Samm!!

My friend Rianne lives in the Netherlands with her daughter Brechje.  We formed a friendship a few years ago and she and Brechje sent me this lovely cookbook for Christmas!  Thank you so much!

My friend Heleen from the Netherlands had commented on my blog back when I was giving away the tootsie roll pops.  She asked me what they were.  I decided I should send her a box of American candy to try!  I collected lots of the old candies that I grew up with as a child.  She in turn sent me a box of candies from her country.  Please read the paper to know the storyline for some of  the candies.  Thank you Heleen... I will be taking it to share with my family over Christmas!

I love getting surprises in the mail! :)

Thearica I just love those blog hops Michelle does. I like visiting just to see what others are doing with no intention of getting anything back. I'm sending you your grandpa wave for a great holiday.
