A Very Happy Mailbox !!

My mailbox does a happy dance, when it is filled with things other than bills!! Or, maybe it is really me who does the happy dance........!!!!

Two packages came the other day - one expected, one a surprise.
The surprise was from Barb- a wonderful teapot potholder that I had admired!!! It came with a fabulous piece of bluer than blue fabric!! I love it- the potholder will never touch a pot handle - it is too nice!!!!

The other package was from my swap partner, Angie. We joined a paper swap put together by Woven Letters
I took so many pix - 'cause there was just so much cool stuff in it!!!My computer is slow tonite, so I will only post a couple!!Included were two of Angie's digital art pieces, Australian postage stamps,tiny little coins, a feather, wrappings, all sorts of things!! If you click on her link, you can see what I sent her too. Swapping is such fun!!!

Here are some words of wisdom for the day, from a clothing hang tag in the swap package:

"As a person puts on new garments, giving up the old ones, the Soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones....."Bhargaved Gita


  1. Oh happy mail indeed!
    Lovely treasures, art mail is always the best mail for sure!

  2. Woo-Hooo! Very nice swap! LOVE the pot holder!

  3. So glad it arrived in one piece, I was worried 'cause it wasn't in a regular envelope.
    I do so love all you sent me - the old PostCard, the pages of 'Articles of Religion' and the 1940 receipt (loan taken in 1931) esp. Thank you very much.

  4. Sounds like you had a winning visit to the mailbox. I agree anything that is not a bill or an advertisement brightens my day.

  5. ....don't you just LOVE mail days like that!!
