Early Birthday Gift!
OH MY GOODNESS!!!
Did I ever get a surprise in the mailbox yesterday when I went out there.
I always take my time walking out to the box, because I have to walk past my lilies on the way.
I love to stop & look at them & smell how wonderful they smell.
Yesterday, I did just that, & then got out to the box.
There was a package in the box. I couldn't figure out what it could be, since I only have one exchange going on & I knew the person hadn't mailed mine yet.
I pulled it out & it was a package from my dear friend Mylene.
I came in & showed my husband. He said, oh, Mylene sent you something. (he has heard me mention Mylene a lot)
I opened it & said it is a birthday gift....should I open it? He said that yes, she is going to want to know you got it!
So, I opened it. First, I opened the card. Not only was it a birthday card, but it was a stitched birthday card. Then, I opened a small package. It was a pinkeep for summer. I LOVE IT!!! I have it on the mantle now. I then opened another small package. This one contained a hardanger doily. It is perfect for my small vase that I put fresh cut flowers in.
I then opened the last one... a larger one. Mylene sent me a magazine from her country. It is so neat. There are a lot of nice patterns in it. It is fun to look at & try to figure out what some of the words are. The best part of magazines is.....a cross stitch pattern is the same in any language!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH MYLENE for making my day extra special yesterday!!!!
