Yes! You got it right, they are
slippers! I had to frog the first one twice because I had convinced myself that there was no possible way they were actually slippers.
Sweets- I only go to the big A.T. on special occasions. What I hate is when you're alone in there and then the lady at the counter is like watching you like some kind of hungry vulture and she's like, "sooo do you wanna try something" and my knees start to buckle and give in and end up going home with a coupon for 20% off my next 2lb purchase of chocolate. Woops. Truthfully, I wanted to send Grahairedoldlady a jar of Krema peanut butter, but don't know where to get it outside of the airport.
On to my package from Grahairedoldlady! (get ready, it's going to kill your computer with photo goodness) I've got to put in here that I had probably one of the crappiest days ever yesterday, and I expected to come home and hang out and maybe if things didn't get better, they'd at least level off. Well instead just more crap kept happening. And then I opened my giant box from Micki! She warned me that there was some spillage outside the stocking, but truth be told: only like 4 things actually fit in the stocking! Opening the box was like digging through a bottomless well.
This is my indigo-purple colored stocking complete with snowman! I couldn't get a good picture of this one
A birthday gift! I haven't even opened it yet, and it's really heavy so I'm intrigued. Thank you so much for remembering! Photographed with a pot holder and it's purple
Three adorable cookie cutter ornaments, I love these so much- thank you! We haven't let our son see the train one yet, he'll run off with it and we'll never see it again.
Miscellaneous regional goodies, including maple candies & cream and some jerky (I'm sort of wondering if she put this in there for my husband, but well let's just say the husband never got to see it)
This photo I've dubbed "the stuff too pretty to use". I have wanted a knit washcloth for a long time, got this fantastic one from my partner, and am so afraid that my husband is going to use it to scrub off bacon grease or something. Also some fantastically brilliant vintage post cards. Those suckers are probably getting framed, they are so up my alley. And a few goodies for the boy too (he's already confiscated the books) and a magic towel.
Okay, so my thinking is that this is one of those wintery head covering things and it just happens to match my winter coat. However, my husband pulled it out and goes, "well everything here is cool except for the knit tube top" so we've been calling it the knit tube top ever since
I tried to explain it to him. He likes the tube top idea better.
This is a scarf, hat, and fingerless glove set and it is so incredibly soft and perfect and fantastic. I wore the hat and fingerless gloves around the house all last night. I'm really really excited about the gloves because I work in a renovated department store that is old and spooky and drafty (although at work we prefer to say it's the ghosts sucking out all the energy, they're the ones that never flush the toilets, too
) and I cannot type with my gloves on when the building decides to be 40 degrees. But I can totally wear these. I am wearing the whole set this morning.
I'm not even sure how to tell Micki how much I appreciate this package and how thoughtful it was- this lady is so talented and friendly. Thank you so much for everything!!!
