FED EX Makes a Delivery !

We interrupt all the Fa-la-la going on to bring you a very important announcement.

Around here it comes as to no shock when Fed Ex pulls up with a delivery. The truck rolls in and out like clock work at least twice a week. But "never" on a Saturday. And to top it off, I knew I didn't have any orders coming in. Hummmm ... He smiles walks out leaving me holding the box. I could not imagine who on earth could be sending me a package. Well... maybe it isn't for me..

Yep, there's my name.. as I tear into the box, well I cut it open gently, but inside I'm ripping my heart out. There's a card..oh my it does have my name on it.


I couldn't believe my eyes, I turned it over and over again. You see I even left it upside down.




Can it be? It's her signature this time of year.. Yes, girls my Gloria ,Happy to Be sent it all the way from California for little ole me. If you haven't visited her blog you must. She has some of the most unique and beautiful antiques. To say nothing of the wonderful and interesting life she's led. I promise you won't be disappointed.



Bubble wrap..tightly wrapped bubble wrap. I had to cut and unfold..

And lookey here !! Isn't this the cutest thing you've ever seen? Oh Gloria darling, you sure know my heart. I could not wait to get it home and find a "special" spot for it.


It looks pretty cute up here in the window. I could admire it every day if I place it here.



See, doesn't he look cute with all the frosted pine cones layered with snow?

Or he could go here with the ribbon candy and the small village of snow people.


He sure looks pretty cute with all the candy canes.. hummmmm......

Since I've taken these pictures my beautiful plate has moved again. He's now found his way onto the side of the stove in a beautiful plate holder. I have a feeling he's going to find a lot of
"perfect" spots around my home. No matter where I put him he's always going to put a smile on my face. When I look at him I'll think about Gloria and the beautiful friendship we've formed via the Internet. Gloria, I cannot thank you enough for thinking of me this holiday season. The gift of your friendship is certainly enough.. hugs ~lynne~

Glenda said...

I may harbor suspicions that Gloria is a closet curator, but I am the first to say she is one sweet, sweet lady.
I don't think you have to worry about where you place the plate. I don't think you could find a bad place for such a beautiful gift.

Lynne said...

Glenda, I so agree about our Gloria being one sweet sweet lady. They don't make them any better than her.. I hope all is well your way...lots of ice and cold our way..hugs ~lynne~
