the cozy is made so it covers your pot & cup when they are stacked together. I found it at the thrift store but it still had its original sticker from Kohls on it though, if I remember it was made by Sonoma.

I receive my great package too, the mail always comes right before I go to work so I never have time to post pics but I will later.

I did take pictures so if it is to troublesome I can post them for you. When you say stacked together, do you mean when they are not in use?? Ill have to go to kohls to see if I can find something similar. I hope the cup I sent got there OK.  Thanks again. The candy was delish!

Oh I'm going to take pics its no problem it will just be later tonight. The teacup made it fine & I LOVE it, its so delicate.

I think that may have originally been a gift set or something because it was like 17.99 originally

OMG! Gorgeous stuff! Now I'm having swapper-anxiety about the package I sent.

I got insurance on the package I sent to T-Dub, so if anything is broken, she can replace it.

Wow looks like everyone has gotten some BEAUTIFUL things so far!

I have to show off my goodies I received from Victoria (ariaya)!!

This is what I pulled out of the box:



A lovely card and a mug wrapped in a colorful crochet gift bag/cozy.  I LOVE the color of the yarn!



Inside the bag/cozy, there was a really cool customized Starbucks mug.  It's going to get TONS of use... I needed a new mug to take to work because the seal on my old one broke so it was leaking! 

Then there's the coasters... here's a closeup:



Aren't these AWESOME!?  I can't wait to show these off to all my geeky friends/coworkers.  Hehehe.

Here's a beautiful notepad that Victoria made for me:





I haven't figured out yet what I'm going to use it for.  It's almost too pretty to actually use!



... And a "Love" mint-tin.  Smiley 

Then I opened the mug, and I think I actually squealed out loud:





Is he not the cutest lil' guy EVER!?!?!?!  I haven't picked out a name for him yet... I'm thinking he needs a coffee-ish name.  Wink

Here's a shot of everything together:



... or so I thought.  Victoria told me I better check the box one more time... hehe.

LOOK!



a piratey bag!  I think this is going to be my knitting bag for the fall.  I have a sock knitting class on Tuesday night and I think I'm going to carry all my stuff in this bag.  Smiley


THANK YOU, Victoria!!  I absolutely love everything!!

I got my package from hardcoremothball and it was great!  All the pics are clickable to see bigger sizes!

Look at all my goodies!  A travel mug worthy of the name, a pretty cozy in the softest yarn, a bag of coffee, a jar of coffee-infused sugar scrub, and spoons dipped in white chocolate and sugar crystals for stirring!  Isn't it great!


The spoons smell so good and I am waiting from Monday morning, after the kids leave for school, for my hour of Me Time before the little one wakes up to use them in my coffee!


This is a jar of the most delicious smelling scrub.  I used a little last night and it felt and smelled wonderful!


This cozy is so soft!  It is in purse right now, ready for travel to a hockey game tonight.  They never have sleeves for their coffee cups so I am fully prepared!


::ADDED::
See?  Perfect for a hockey game!  Genuine hockey players in the back and thoughtfully modeled by my son, who thinks I am nuts for taking a picture of my coffee cup!



Thank you so much for everything!
