Dear Diane

It took more than 5 months, but your package finally arrived!
 I love all the pretty handmade tags.
And what a joy it is to receive a card with handwritten words.
 The pineapple chamomile is dry as it can be.
But that's okay.
It will no longer grow, but I can steep it for tea.
From what I've read, pineapple weed a/k/a wild chamomile is relaxing for tension and stress.
Thank you, Diane, for your thoughtfulness.

Have a beautiful day!

I got tears in my eyes when I read your post, Tammy. I had given up on you ever receiving it - in fact I forgot some of the tags!! I'm so glad you got it - and just in time for Christmas! Diane

Lovely.

Sometimes the post people just get confused!
Very special tags, if only they could relate their journey?
Enjoy the lovelies you have received.

Look at those lovely, lovely tags! Worth the wait, I think. :)

P.S. Lavender tea is also said to be calming - my husband finds it so and drinks some every night at bedtime.

Dearest Tammy,
That is the loooooooooooooooooooongest mailing I've ever heard of! So glad that it finally got there. Must have been in some corner, stashed away and forgotten for a while.
That sure made your day!
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Wow! That package must have really been riding on the back of a snail. But at least you received your lovely gifts!

Hi Tammy. So glad your present finally arrived.

Yes, the tragedy in Connecticut has kept all of us feeling deep sadness. It was just a horrendous loss of beautiful, precious little lives.
For stupidity, really.

Take care, Tammy, and thanks for your visit and comment, too. Susan

Hi Tammy.
Missed seeing all your good blogs. But I'm back and trying to catch up. You should see Geneva with all of the Christmas lights, it's awesome. Merry Christmas. Love,Susan

Glad you finally received her package.

Hope you're enjoying a wonderful Christmas time. I have just a little bit today, tomorrow, and Thursday and then hooray - off at home for 17 days!! :D One of my happiest times of the year because of that. Daughter Jennifer arrives on Friday from Canada for the weekend only (returning midday on the 24th - which is also JIM's Birthday!) and it's festivity after festivity. We already enjoyed one Christmas celebration with my family (my sisters and their families along with our parents) on this past weekend.

Hope you enjoy the remainder of December. Merry Christmas.

Linda ♥
