HELLO MUG SWAPPERS! Come on back and check out Bablina's Long lost package!~ HOORAY!!!!!!
I opened this INCREDIBLY heavy box, and things just kept pouring out...
I'll start with the lot as it came out (with one minor exception, I'll explain later)

The mug is a tea for one set that I've been using ever since (and right now for that matter!)
and it looks like the colors inspired her to paint a tea box, coaster and tray to match!
There's also a little tea bag cozy (which my gameboy is now inside of) and a little tea spoon

Top of the box:

Next up are some jar projects, loose tea, a cinnamon apple candle and some homemade? preserves!
I don't know what kind they are yet.. they're vacuum sealed!

A set of four coasters:

There is soooo much tea and hot cocoa and cider and sweets and chocolates and peppermints
and I had trouble getting pictures of the special towel cozies she made, but very pretty!
Finally, the item which came out of the box first and is absent from the group shot is this:

because I immediately put it on!

Thanks so much Babilina for staying patient and sending me such an awesome box! I love it!!!

Shocked  OK I just figured it all out...........

They gave them weekends off for the most part and 2 hour lunch so they don't.......................

Cool GO POSTAL  Cool GO POSTAL  Cool GO POSTAL Cool GO POSTAL Cool 

My boyfriend works for the post office and most of his family does too. The economic crunch has hit them too. At least at his post office, even durning christmas time. They can really only afford to keep one person MAYBE two on the window. My BF Was there yesterday and there was a line around the block and only one window allowed open. The other workers had to sort the mail. Some had to be sent home because of the $$$$. Honestly, people take the Post office for granted I think. Most postal workers are being replaced with machines now and the couple of people they do have work very hard to try to make our lives easier. its not a glamourous job, its very hard and tirering with low pay and no respect. I love when people complaiun about the post office. I was in line today and some woman was screaming because there were 4 people ahead of her. i was laughing hysterically. From November through mid-january theyre busy with not enough workers. It sucks. That is why I mail my xmas packages in october lol. I work retail (im sure a lot of you do too) and this time of year customers get cranky and make your job worse. Its hard. And I am going off on a tangent. Respect your postal Service. They work just as hard as everyone else.

I blame the IDIOTS who had the box! the Mailman ( delivery any YES the counter people who told her she could not pick it up)

All is well that ends well I guess lesson of the story...INSURE your packages and they are held accountable!
I now need to snag a boatload of pens to make up for the money I paid to ship 2 times!!  Shocked Grin
I am off to my postoffice to steal a few pens and mail some packages LOL Kiss
