For the LOVE of snail mail

In the midst of my mess I am blessed. First I recieved a box of stuff from my mom. She volunteers at a thrift shop while snow-birding it up Arizona.

She had no idea what we were in the middle of when she sent this or how much it would brighten my day and........

........make me laugh....how random is the plastic eyelash curler and those boots. Is there an eyelash curler craft tip that I am not aware of? Wait are they possibly awesome for curling ribbon? Okay I will try and find out. ::::But those boots? what are those about?...a cowboy wedding, a boot warming party?
BEST FOR LAST
Then there was this from my awesome swap partner Sarah, look at that pincushion... oh , the perfection, the beauty, the intimidation of it. Adorned with Rickrack---for me! So.... dare I say Yummy? How, may I ask am I supposed to create something equally as great?


Is it possible, the needle book- buttons to the top for crying out loud. But wait there's more......
Look at how wonderful this fabric is!!! It is oozing spring and covered in polka dots how did she know I love polka dots.

Could this be any better you ask well yes this last picture tells all. What a package she sent me. Pins and needles and polkadots and the final touch, felt rickrack, how appropriate is that. Have I gushed enough of the greatness of the very creative Sarah? I doubt it.
So I end with Thank you, thank you, thank you.

P.S. Is anyone dying to get their hands on some lovely plastic boots? I think they may make a wonderful gift for someone special. hehe

Wow you lucky girl! You have lots a nice things there. And that pin cushion Sarah made is just too cute.

Those boots remind me of a margartia cup I got a Dollie's Dixie Stampede in S.C. haha

Sarah and Jack said...

Yea! I am so glad you liked it. It took me about 4 tries to come up with something appropriate for Miss "Rick Rack"!

It looks like there are some amazng buttons in that stuff from your mom?

Rebecca said...

That box from your Mom is the best! (I about peed my pants over the snowbird thing, I had a Canadian boyfriend for awhile)

Sarah is such a great swap partner, isn't she??

P.S. I'll pass on the boots.

Very sweet treats!
Like Katie Jean, I also had a Dixie Stampede boot. Those little ones could be little cowgirl shot glasses.

Roxanne said...
