And thought, oh well, when I get to work, my package will be there! Only instead, it wasn't and i think they can't read the zip code that bonster put on the package and now its somewhere in south florida!!!

Maybe you could call them up or something.  You have the tracking number, so maybe that would help to get it to you.

Oh No! I can call your local post office if you think that would help. I'll check the delivery confirmation number too.

So here I am, finally posting pictures of the sweet package pinokeeo sent to me.  I got it yesterday and was very excited that I was actually around to get it.  I got called off work yesterday, so I got to open a package instead.

Here is the package, in all it's glory!


The stocking itself:

I am fantastically thrilled with it.  I love the cording and the contrast of the darker leather with the lighter leather.  The bell on the toe is wonderful, it makes me smile a lot.  And I love how big it is!  I told my boyfriend Eric he would have to fill it for me and he just shook his head at me, sadly I might add.

Some of the littler things:

There are some little angels in the bag.  I haven't opened it yet because I'm so disorganized at the moment I might very well lose them, but there's one sitting on a moon that's so cute.  It will make a perfect addition to my Christmas Angel host.  My family for years has put all our angel's together in one spot and called it an Angel Host, so it's fun to have some more to add to my very own.

There are also some tree branch pencils, one of which is going straight into my car so I will always have something to write with. Pinokeeo said they had come from a buffalo farm down the road from her.  She also sent some beautiful cedar wood sachets for my closet or drawers.  They are the heart shapes and have pretty little bunches of flowers and ribbons on them.  The wood is so smooth, I spent a bunch of time just turning them over and over in my hand.  There's also a sweet jigsawed (at least I think so), wooden ornament that I love.  It's got cool waves cut out of it and it's also nice and smooth.  A cute little soldier was what I found next.  He seems to be made out of very mini plant pots and I think he's adorable.  A little paper star was next and I must say, it's a very clever thing.  It looks to be made all out of triangles of wallpaper and it's got two buttons connecting everything by being sewn on.  I'm totally stealing the idea and making them for everyone this Christmas.  The buttons are both wood and it's very charming. There was also a little recycled card sconce type thing that I think I shall hang pens in. 

I squealed with geeky glee when I saw the next item.  It's a floppy disk purse!  And a floppy disc notebook!  (see?  squealing again)

I saw one of these that she had made and posted on the board and I loved it, so I was really hoping I was going to get one.  My boyfriend is a huge computer geek and so the first thing he said was "ooo.. that's cool"  followed shortly by "you know, I think those disks are all still usable."   I will be keeping an eye on my purse and if any go missing, I'll definitely know where to go.   Wink 

Here are the chocolates, which are fantastic and filled the purse.  There was also a little floppy disk box filled with homemade gingerbread men.  She also sent a tin of chocolate Legos for my boyfriend, but he got them away from me before I took a picture of them.  He was really excited about them.  Smiley  His goal when he retires (many, many years from now), is to build model cities with Legos, so I thought it was a brilliant idea of pinokeeo's.  I was running out of chocolate too, so I was very excited to have different kinds to try.



Also inside the purse was this:

A beautiful Walnut covered journal. I'm a writer and I'm actually almost ready for a new journal too, so it was perfect.  Again, the wood is so smooth, it's really fun to touch.  It will also fit in my purse, which is always a plus.

I also received two beautiful pairs of earrings that I thought deserved their own picture. One of them is blue and white beads along with a tiny little sea shell and the other is a book that says "The Book of Life" on one side and "Chapter 1" on the inside with a pair of reading glasses.  The book pair has pearls and a little silver bead with an L on them. I love them both and put on the book ones right away.


Extra supplies:

I keep running out of zippers, so pinokeeo's partner sent me some new ones, plus some markers to replace my horrid gel pens.  They will make card making lots easier.

I think that's about it.  There was a package marked to be opened on December 25, so I gave it to my boyfriend for safe keeping.  It was definitely a highlight to receive it and I'm sure it will be even more fun to open the present later. Thanks for a wonderful package pinokeeo and to the mods for a great swap!

That notebook looks as smooth as if the tree told her how to make it. Soooo nice!

I'm glad onegroovyday got some pics up. My power was out today and I couldn't get better pictures. Marley wore her new jacket today and cuddled with her monkey on our car trip. I'm gonna have her wear the dress for Thanksgiving, and I'm gonna wear my skirt, so action shots will be had soon!
