I received an awesome package from curiousfae over the weekend!

First off, she generously included a book and goodies for my son after hearing that he had an interest in Stephen King. The book sounds interesting, I'll probably steal it from him. Wink



He was psyched! Cheesy

And for me....the books!



And the goodies!



Actually, some of the chocolate was for my daughters, too, lol. I may or may not have stolen a chocolate covered animal cracker...or three. Cheesy

The books sound so good! I seriously can't wait to dive in! I'm going to read East first because it looks and sounds like something I should have read already! I feel so thoroughly pegged. Wink

Oh, and here's a close up of the feather:



She didn't think my polar bear book mark was big enough, lol. I love it all!! Oh, I am realizing that the bookmark she made for my son is not in these pics. D'oh! I'll have to snag one tonight.

Thank you so much, Kelli!! You brightened our whole house. Smiley

 Oh, the book East reminds me of these fairytales I used to read as a kid, East of the Sun, West of the Moon. Some versions vary, and some are illustrated, I think... Ill have to check it out soon. Beautiful bookmarks, especially the feather.

The author said that East was inspired by that book!

Love the bookmarks-am I right in thinking the polar bear is like a flat snow um envelope?  and the feather one is fabulous!

I was lucky enough to be paired with out amazing organizer - so much spoilage!

First up - the books - BLUE!!!! I love blue! I can't believe she got me a book about blue porcelain - looks like a lovely piece of period fiction about someone crafting with blue... i really love blue Cheesy oh um the other book looks good too, but unfortunately not blue. I really really love blue. Just kidding, seriously the other book looks good too.

Also shown, a box of assorted teas, a mug, and embroidered felt pencil toppers. Having a cup of Mojito Mint green tea right now (honest mint green tea with a hint of lime - delicious!)



Yummy chocolates - there was another layer just like this one, but somehow I blinked and it was gone?



So many bookmarks! I really want to play with your washi tape stash!!!



Hoopla #52 for my collection! I swear this could be my mom - you haven't been peeking at pictures of my family from 35 years ago?



And if all that wasn't enough, the best of all - an embroidered handkerchief. Such a sweet embroidery. Love the blue dress and that the hair has waves!



Thank you Kittykill!
