Go visit Happy Handwork...you'll be glad you did :-)

Sooo, it's Monday, and I really should have posted this on Friday night...but we were out all night on Friday, and then we were at a very long, but very beautiful wedding all day on Saturday, and then H and I were on service (church) yesterday, and then his family came to visit, and then I've had some "health issues". So, there's my excuse for being horrible tardy is posting my thank you! Because this is a fantastic gift! Thank you Barb!

When we came home from work on Friday there was a box in our mailbox. It was from Barb at Happy Handwork. Have you been to visit? If not, go check out her blog. There is always a story to be told and it's always told in a very creative and entertaining manner. If you're reading Happy Handwork, you usually get to feel like you're walking around right beside it's writer!
Inside the box was a real treat! A beautiful card was right on top with a note from Barb. Then, I started unwrapping, and unwrapping, and unwrapping...I was amazed it seemed to never end! You are so generous Barb! Thank you sooooo much! You really made my day!...weekend! Week!

There were some Peeps, which I've heard people talk about, but never seen before and I was so curious about them...I haven't broke into any of the candy yet...but it won't be long! And there was the cutest packet of teas with a little spoon rest in the shape of a teapot, with those yummy stir-spoons! (Can you see them...they're next to the peeps...it was hard to make them show up with my little camera). Anddd..there's more...Choxie chocolates! Yummm! Two different kinds of chocolate, solid milk chocolate bars and dark and milk chocolate truffley goodness. To top it all off..there is yarn! Sock yarn...and beautiful sock yarn! Now, I'll really have to have a contest...so you can all help me decide which pattern to match up with which sock yarn :-D Wait for the post...it will be coming soon!I tried to take a close up of the colours in the yarn...but it didn't work out that well, it's beautiful....lighter blues...darker blues...even some purple tones Thank you Barb! And keep posting! We are all so blessed to know you!
