Dear Val

Finally! Your package has arrived! It took exactly 75 days to reach me.

Jingles was hanging out on the balcony, but ...

then she got a whiff of something and rushed inside to check things out.

Let the love fest begin!




Thank you for the sweet card that opens up into a sewing kit.



Thank you for the ladybug card and colorful yarn.

And thank you especially for the handmade teacup apron. I love it! I tried to get my kids to take a picture of me wearing it but they were hopeless.

The arrival of your package certainly made our day!

Val can be found at Yarni Gras. She had a giveaway in July; announced in August that I was the winner; then made the apron and catnip mouse special for us. She mailed her package to Kuwait on September 6th and I know it didn't take that long to get here, but as I've said before, mail is hit or miss in this country. Thanks again Val! I appreciate everything.

Sending best wishes and blessings to one and all. Tammy

Oh dear Tammy, snail mail at it's worst, but wasn't your lovely parcel worth the wait!!!

So sorry to hear the news of your ankle - take care. I did a similar thing when I was a student and I still remember hopping and hobbling to catch the trams!!!!!

Healing prayers on their way.

WOW! 75 days????? That's just crazy, Tammy! But, at least it arrived intact--what a thoughtful bunch of gifts she sent you, too!

Hope your weekend has been just lovely, my friend...

A lovely package filled with surprises! Seventy-five days is a long time, but the contents were well worth the wait!

Aren't kitties just the funniest with cat nip! They act so silly. A wonderful package of goodies and well worth waiting for.

Val couldn't have made anything better for Jingles!! LOL! That is just too cute! I'll bet you are very cute in that apron, too. Lots of fun in a package that has taken a round-about journey getting to you! blessings ~ tanna

Happy Thanksgiving Tammy Sweetie...
Oh my what a gorgeous share today. I love seeing the face on your precious angel, Jiggles. Was that an every happy moment or what? SO worth the wait. A toy especially for Jiggles that will be loved to pieces.

75 days, wow is that ever a long time. Funny how your packages can get lost and take so long to arrive. I would venture to say if your order Christmas items they were ordered a very long time ago.

I love your gorgeous cupcake apron. That is so precious. Darn those kids. We always have to bride to get something we want. Maybe hubby will take a photo for us.

Have a glorious Thanksgiving sweet friend. Thank you for touching my life. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Looks like the long wait was worth it! Very fun!

Linda said...

Lovely items to win and receive. :)

It's funny but Winston will not play with any toys if they're bigger than 1". As cute as that mouse is, he would instantly be afraid and walk away. When I was buying his stocking stuffers on Etsy, I had to make sure that I found something sooooo tiny, so that he might find 5 minutes of interest in it. Funny how different each cat is from another, but not unlike people. :)

Hope you have a good week.
I'm still not sure about if I'm going to keep up blogging or not. It's been over a week now since I've written.

I see Jingles loves his crochet mouse, it looks very similar to the sausages I have posted on my blog. My cats love them.

That package was certainly a long time arriving...but what lovely treats it contained! I loved the pictures of Jingles and the little crochet mouse, and how cute the little sewing set is.
Have a happy week.

You just have met the most wonderful people since blogging. I swear that Jingles could have her own channel and I'm sure she would be popular. What a photogenic kitty. Love it!

Toodles,

Jingles could possibly be the cutest cat I know!! I LOVE seeing her pictures, as her personality is written all over the pictures. No need for words...
