I SMOOCHED A POSTMAN~~~



My new favorite person in the world today is my postman! When I saw him pull up in the driveway carrying some big old boxes, I just couldn't resist dashing across the yard. Then I grabbed his surprised face and gave him a big old smoooooch! Okay not really...but I was sorely tempted....because you should see what my favorite little government working nugget brought me!!!!!!

First up I ordered this adorable snowman from Heather's Etsy store. OH MY GOODNESS....just look at him. He is even cuter than he was when I saw him living in my computer! Heather I love him so much!! And thanks for getting him to me so quickly!




Then there was this box......OH GOODIE I know what this is! Awhile back I won a contest from Nana's Box. She is doing the most amazing things to help cancer patients. She creates these beautiful photo boxes that....well hey click on her name and go over and see for yourself...she explains it much better than me. This woman has a heart of gold and is doing such great work! So what was the prize you ask.....

Well I'll show you... This beautiful custom painted star was done by the FABULOUS and funny Linda from J'ollie Primitives. She donated a custom star to Nana's box because she is generous and wonderful like that. Thanks Linda it's PERFECT! And I have just the place to hang it when spring comes! Until then I've got another spot in my side entry that is crying out for something this big and beautiful! Thanks so much to both of you for this great prize!!!


And lastly....Lookie what we have here! Could it possibly be here this quickly???

Hollee Ann must be in hyperdrive because this got here soooo fast. I joined up with the beautiful Hollee Ann from over at Dandelion Wishes in her very fun Mamarazzi's swap. This was a "my favorite things" swap...which really appealed to me because we got to send stuff that we loved. Let's see what she sent.....First a very sweet card.


HOLY FREAKING BAT CRAP!!! Just feast your eyes on all this marvelous stuff! All wrapped up pretty and filled with candy and PINK A PLENTY!!!!!

Everything looks so pretty and it's tagged with an explanation as to what makes it her favorite. It was soooooo much fun opening all these little packages! And there were A TON of them!!!


Her favorite candy bar, tv watching snack...YUMMO, tv show, book, pamper item, nail polish, note card.... on and on.....OH MY THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF!!!












I hit the mother lode!!!!! Thanks Hollee Ann...what a delightful surprise. It was so much fun! And I really appreciate all your hard work putting this together!!!

French Fancy said...

Nikki, Christmas has come early in your household!!!. What lovely things you've received and I bet you sent just as beautiful things in return.

I have actually kissed our postman - every year we give him a bottle of whisky and every year he looks up at the window to see if Mr French Fancy is looking and then - if not - he gives me a kiss. He's rather nice as well.

French Fancy said...

That snowman is absolutely adorable and that star just reminds me of a WARM July day, love it!

That box of pink stuff is to die for! I entered a Valentine's Day Swap earlier this year (not thru bloggers) and I said I wanted a pink box full of pink stuff...and that's not exactly what I got...and the person even gave me a Valentine turtlneck with ruffles for a girl....I don't have any girls..yeah, she was really on the ball, that swapper..box of crap, lol ;)

If it weren't fer bad luck, I'd have no luck at all....lol ;)

Enjoy your day and all of your goodies!!!
