Don’t You Just Love Receiving Surprise Gifts?

apr9-1

During my busy week, I had forgotten that I was the March Giveaway winner from Tricia of Vintage Bliss. So what a wonderful surprise when I returned home from work a few days ago and found a package that contained this beautiful necklace. It was made by Rita Reade of Mammabellarte. I so enjoyed wearing this to work today!

The first gift I received this week was from my former neighbor who moved to Taiwan a few years ago. She was here visiting for the week and brought me a bag of gifts. What is this, you may wonder? Well, these items are intended to keep your tea or coffee hot. They are pliable rubble and they actually form a bit of a seal from the steam. When she found these with the kitties on top, she knew she had to get them for me. Too cute!

What a treat, it makes you feel so special to receive gifts, doesn't it. The necklace is gorgeous, and the kitties are very cute.

Oh my gosh Sharon! I was at the Daiso this morning which is the Japanese store here that sells anything and everything and I saw a sunflower tea warmer the same as your kitty warmers that you received. That is so ironic as I've never heard of or seem them before. I had to read the packaging to see what it was. Thankfully, it's in Japanese and English! Happy weekend to you. :) Tammy

How fun! Presents out of the blue. And what a great idea for those "lids". I've never seen anything like that before.
Have a wonderful weekend! Karen

Wow gift girl, you got some cuties!!!!

I love the distressing on the necklace above.

Plus, I hope Miss Gracie doesn't get jealous about the new little kittie in the house ;)
(be careful, the tea/coffee warmer almost looks like a cupcake when sitting atop of the cup...she might lick it to death! hahahahaha

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend!!!!

Love the photos. So are you getting your new camera or did you decide to travel instead?????

Sharon I love your gifts. I have a charm that Rita soldered and love it. I think her charms are all so beautiful. Aren't gifts in the mail the greatest?!
