The super sweet cutie patootie pie otherwise known in the blog world as the Chocolate Cat sent me a package the other day!!! I was sitting in my sewing room working on my quilt with the hubby and the 16 year old keeping me company when I heard the mail man. I got up, opened up the door, reached in the mail box AND FOUND A PACKAGE ADDRESSED TO MOI!!! I went back into the sewing room, doing the bootie dance, to show the family what I got. And look!!! She wrapped it!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Look. At. All. The. Lovely. Goodness! Cute napkins to daintily wipe one's mouth when one is enjoying a donut and coffee. A wonderful gingerbread button to adorn a Christmas bag I am now going to make. A very Aussie calender that I can look at every morning and sigh. Why the sigh?? Because as I am looking at the picture of the month there will be a longing inside of me to be out in the bush....watching wallabies....eating shrimp on the barbie...having walkabouts and visiting with one of the kindest people around. (smooches Lise!!) There is also a book about all things Australia and some lotion for when my hands get chapped during this very dry, very cold winter. See the package with the bow. That my friends would be food for the gods. Choc-o-late. Yuuuuummmmm. I popped one of them there babies in my mouth so I could sustain myself while taking pictures. Did I share with the hubby and the 16 year old you ask?? I informed them that their name was not on the package and for them to get back before they lost a limb.

See!!!! Chocolates from Australia!!!! Could anything be better?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!? If you are shaking your head right now thinking no Dawn, there is nothing better then chocolates from Australia you would be DING DING DING!! right.

The whole kit and caboodle was in this bag. This very cute bag that I promptly put on the door of my sewing center so I could look at it and smile. Thinking about someone (in Australia SQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEE) who was nice enough to be thinking of me.

You meet some of the best people while blogging!! Hugs and kisses to you Lise!!!!

You truly made my day.
