{The Mailman Loves me!!}

Well, I know it's not the mail man who sends me great and wonderful things, but it's just hard not to get excited when I see him!  Today, I had a wonderful and beautiful envelope from Tulsi Leaf Traders!  I won a giveaway on her blog and now I can't seem to find the dang address!  That link is to her Etsy store, which is also very gorgeous.  I'll update this as soon as I find it. lol

I won a pair of citrin gemstone earrings!!  Aren't these SO pretty?  They are perfect for me! I love the length and the neutral colour and I love that they are rusticy.  I could wear these every day!

And also in the envelope was a completely unexpected surprise: A skein of yarn!!  A really pretty Alpaca yarn in a fun colour!!

She said she discovered she can't knit with Alpaca, and while I'm very sorry for her loss, I'm VERY excited to be the recipient of this gorgeous fiber!!  This is from The Alpaca Yarn Company in colour Caribbean Chocolate.  YUM.

And hey! Have you I told you guys that Jenny is coming to visit me? From SWEDEN!! I couldn't write about it before because it was a big huge surprise from all her friends and family for her birthday!  Her sister Sanna contacted me after I wrote about her during Knit and Crochet blog week, and everyone pitched in to pay for her plane ticket!! She's going to be here probably next spring with her husband Thomas.  I am SO SO SO excited!  I have to probably learn to be more calm though since that's a while away. lol

Her first instinct is to buy a second suitcase when she gets here and fill it with yarn.  I think that's a GREAT idea. :D


  1. The earrings are actually citrine gemstone. And they look gorgeous on you!

    Alpaca itches my throat and makes me sneeze when i touch it, and I bought TWO skeins of it. The other skein is in a ball, I was going to put it in, but it has been frogged and it was kinda ugly. I might suffer through and knit something quick to get rid of it.

    I am so glad you liked them. And thank you for the lovely words on your blog.

    Warm Wishes,

  2. The earrings are very pretty! Lucky you! Earrings and yarn and an online friend! I adore the yarn!

  3. Nice earrings and the bonus yarn!! I read about Jennyy visiting you on her blog. You two must be sooo excited!! Make sure you take tons of pics!!

  4. How fun! Love the earrings and the surprise skein of yarn too. And how fun is it that you get to meet an online friend IRL? I'd be excited too.

  5. Yay yay yay! I'm super exited too! Spring seems such a long time away right now!
