I was on my way to the gas station yesterday in search of some Reese's PB Cups, and as I was going out the front door I spotted a package from seymourcharlie!

Here's a pic of all the goodies inside:



-a wonderful little purse and keychain
-fabrics that i just can't wait to use
-2 craft magazines - i've had a skim read and they look really interesting
-an embroidery kit and some iron-ons which i LOVE and have the perfect thing to use them on
-some saltwater taffee (yum!)
-chocolate bars including PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!

I can't tell you how excited I was, especially since they stopped selling them at the gas station and they are pretty hard to find around here! Now will just have to hide them from my brother!

Thank you so much Whitney!

Sorry it took me SO long to post pics, but I've had computer issues!

Here's what Javede sent from Hamburg, Germany:

assorted sweets (I love Kinder eggs!), Bavarian fabric, a pin cushion that she made with a vintage button in the center (she sent some extra buttons, but the didn't make it into the picture), a postcard and some adorable wooden ornaments

detail of the ornaments. there is one more - a little girl wearing a scarf - but I guess she's camera shy, because she's hiding in the package wrapping  Tongue

Thanks again Javede!!!

And, a lovely package of Japanese goodies from chimerix in Hawaii:

fabric, stickers, chopsticks, origami doll bookmarks, rubber stamps, maneki neko beads, a little lunch bag, and two origami craft kits

detail of some of the smaller items - oh, and a pineapple Hawaii magnet for my collection!

detail of fabric - I love it!

Thanks again chimerix!!

Oh yeah! Those little wooden ornaments. I just saw ones like those in this "bavarian fashion" store downtown (amusing). I've always had them on my tree! Are they traditional German ornaments then? (They could be from Germany, so it wouldn't be too crazy).

And that Hawaiian Japanese fabric (hehe) is great!

Yeah I got a great package from Esmeralda. Some of the Chocolate got broken but I am sure it is still edible.  Picture to come in a bit.

That little group may be from Germany, but I don't know if they are "traditionally German." Now you can buy them pretty much anywhere. All of the Christmas markets will have at least one booth selling wooden ornaments, but you see more of the hand blown glass ones. Think Christopher Radko and you get the idea. Those were actually started in Germany.

And one funny thing. Many people in th US have heard of the German Christmas Pickle Legend and buy Pickle Ornaments for their trees. We asked all of our German friends and NOT ONE had heard of it. They thought we were nuts. A bit of research turned up this:

How typical!
