I RECEIVED FROM GIGGLYGIRL TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unfortunately, I am unable to take and post photos, so I am going to give detailed descriptions of the items she sent, and I think gigglygirl will post photos.
Here goes: (btw, my color was orange)
-a bouquet of (fake) flowers in varying shades of orange, and tied with a peach bow (I think I am going to take these to school and let my students use them in the dramatic play area...they will love them!)
-a reusuable plastic transparent orange cup with orange lid and orange straw
-two packages of orange butterfiles on sticks (I will probably bring these to school too, to decorate the classroom for spring.)
-a Clinique pouch with butterflies on it on a white background...some of the butterflies are orange...inside of the pouch was orange nail polish and orange lip balm (they do not look as garish as they sound when typed out in a description)
-not ONE, but TWO hooplas! One of a smiling peach colored flower on an orange and white patterned background, and one of a peach/pink owl on the same orange and white patterned background (and both tied with a peach ribbon on top!)
-two orange dishtowels
-a BEAUTIFULLY embroidered white linen(?) cloth/table runner with crocheted edging. Orange flowers with green leaves. I have to find a very special place to put this where it won't get stained. It's very beautiful! (and the orange you used is my favorite shade)
-a pocketbook from Old Navy which has green, red, pink, and ORANGE flowers on it! I love Old Navy bags, and can't wait for spring to come so I can use this one!
-TWO embroidered dish towels, made out of the same material/colors/edging as the
table runner, with orange tops to attach them to the oven handle. They look too beautiful to use!
-a GEORGOUS tote bag with my requisite zipper on top
(seriously, thank you), with two HUGE pockets on the inside! It's made out of this beautiful butterfly fabric that is really hard to describe, but it is so gracefully beautiful. The inside fabric looks like salmon colored Gerba daisy flowers (my fav flower too!)
-attached to one of the handles on the tote bag was a charm bracelet! It has those nesting dolls (I can't spell the name of what they are called), butterfly, bird, owl, Holly Hobbie type girl, and a teddy bear.
-a MATCHING WRISTLET made out of the flower fabric, with a silver owl zipper pull! Attached to the wristlet part is a giraffe keyring which I am going to gift to my DS (an inside joke, he'll LOVE it!)
-TWO EXQUISITE orange bracelets...one shiny and flashy and one more sedate
-TWO PAIRS of orange and silver earrings! Hanging ones, too, which are my favorite kind!
-THREE packs of Trident gum (the one with the orange label)
-a little picture with a stand that says: "A little spritz of love never hurts" (it's a picture of a girl trying to dust and clean her cat)...it made me giggle b/c I had to wake my oldest DD up for school the other day by spraying her IN THE FACE with a water bottle!
(and do you know, that didn't even work??!!)
I have to tell you...as soon as I opened the end of the box, I turned to my oldest DD and said: "I know I'm going to like this already!"
And I was right! Gigglygirl was so generous that I was still finding MORE items she sent even as I thought I had opened everything!
