Snail Mail

Who doesn't love snail mail?
Mail that's not bills, not advertisements or just those annoying flyers.

I follow 
Stephanie's Blog - The Enchanting Rose
and she featured a few things from her etsy shop on her blog. 
I ordered two things from what she featured, items that felt like they were made just for me.
I got an email the very next day that they had been shipped and I was pretty excited.

Here's what I saw when I opened the box.
It felt like I was opening a present on my Birthday or Christmas.

Everything was wrapped beautifully with a pretty tag...
tags I can re-use in my scrapbook.
Tags with birds because she knows I love birds.

I unwrapped the tissue paper to see this adorable bag, this is one of the items I ordered.

This adorable pad was inside the bag, with the cute matching serendipity tag.
This is a bonus.

This Easter Table Runner was the second item I ordered.
The teas were another bonus, to make me smile.
And that sweet clothes pin with the little bid glued to it - so many beautiful extra touches.

She chooses the most amazing fabrics.

This burlap bag was inside the box also.

All these goodies were inside the bag, 4 stamps and ink...and another tag.
I thought maybe they fell into the box by accident.
- I hadn't ordered them -
Then I remembered other posts on Stephanie's blog and I knew it was no accident,
these are the sweet things she does.

It fit's perfectly on my favorite table.

The back of the runner is finished as well - it could be reversed -
the back is as pretty as the front, well, almost!

This thoughtful, kind note was included as well!

Saturday Critters ~ 166 ~

- Valentine's Day was special - 
especially the drive home because we drove past this beautiful...

The hubs is an expert at the quick stop, pull over,
I am an expert at finding the camera and changing the lens,
because as you know, you never have on the right lens to capture the moment you are in.

I spoke softly and asked her to stay...

she did for a while but then scampered off.

She had friends waiting for her - aren't they beautiful.
When I see them I am reminded of real nature, 
that they survive on their own not caged or cared for by humans.
It is one of the only wild animals I see in this area,
and they always bring me so much joy!!
