One of the most exciting things in life is seeing you have an unexpected package waiting for you in your mailbox or on your porch. Sometimes that can be a bad thing, but mostly it is a good thing. You wonder, what could that be? Who is that from? This time, my husband said, as he brought in the package, “What did you get from Wisconsin?”
In my case, it was a great thing and happened to me twice thanks to the super sweet kindness of Paulette from Cheerful Thrifty Door. I recently received my second package from Paulette. I was feeling under the weather when the package arrived. Can I tell you how much better I instantly felt?
Here is the package as it looked when I pulled it from the envelope. (I’ve learned that bloggers like to see the unwrapping process; something I did not know early on in my blogging life.)
Look at that darling Mary Englebreit gift card and how Paulette wrapped the package with the cheerful blue yarn.
I was being very patient to even take a picture of the inside of the card. You know I wanted to rip into this package…
Isn’t this the cutest linen kitchen towel? What a perfect New Year’s gift to receive! I just love it!!
This pair of Scotties will certainly make you smile. Thank you, Paulette, for thinking of me when you happened upon these cuties. You surely brightened my day!
But wait! I did say this was the second package I had received from Paulette. Back in my early blogging days I commented on one of Paulette’s posts about two vintage ceramic Scottie planters she found while thrifting. Her response? She wanted to send them to me!! I was overwhelmed with surprise and excitement and the same time. Not too long after that, these gorgeous vintage Scotties made a journey across many states to land on my doorstep.
I hope to join the parties at Flea Market Finds at Her Library Adventures, Apron Thrift Girl’s Thrift Share Monday, Knick of Time’s Knick of Time Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm, Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville, Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove, and The Penny Worthy Project at Hey, What’s for Dinner Mom?
