Can Laundry Make You Smile?

Can laundry make you smile? Well, yes it can.

My mailman brought a most wonderful package to my home this past week. It happened to arrive exactly on my birthday and since I was on vacation I was home to receive it immediately upon delivery. I was ever so surprised because I wasn’t expecting a package. Aren’t those the best kind?

Once I saw the return address of a fellow blogger ( Paulette at Cheerful Thrifty Door) I just knew I would need my camera before opening the package. That’s what happens to you when you become a blogger. Read along and you’ll see why.

I opened the padded envelope to find this sweetly wrapped item inside.

Can you see how precious this is? A page from a dictionary with the word “friend” highlighted. See that sweet heart?

Don’t you love the baker’s twine wrapped around this very thoughtful paper?

The anticipation was great. It takes a lot of self-control to take these pictures instead of ripping into the unwrapping to see what treasure awaits.

This is a tease-box. Can you see something peaking out from inside? What could it be? I don’t know. Let’s open it up!

Oh my goodness, is this not the cutest thing?

Look at those darling Scotties!

Who would mind doing laundry when these sweeties were there to help you?

Thank you, sweet friend, for thinking of me when you found this vintage treasure and for making my day, which also happened to be my birthday, a very special one.

I hope to visit the parties at Flea Market Finds at Her Library Adventures, Knick of Time’s Knick of Time Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm, Today’s Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality, Thrifty Things Friday at The Thrifty Groove, and The Penny Worthy Project at Hey, What’s for Dinner Mom?

I love searching for dishes for tablescaping. That leads me to yard sales and thrift shops and fun, fun, fun.
