Best Day EVER!!! (Warning...lengthy and you WILL be jealous!)
Dear Susannne - I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVE everything about my swap package! From the minute I saw the box with the words "Apron Swap" with a little heart on the corner, I just knew that someone wonderful had packaged it! I had to stop myself and just breathe when I opened the box. I wanted to tear into everything, but I wanted to savor every lovely detail. So I read the gorgeous handmade sunflower card. I don't think you know this, but I lead Women's Ministry at our church and it's called "Son"flowers :) Then next I opened the package with the antique pastry blender with a red wooden handle! Breathe, Karen, breathe..... Ok...then I opened the "future" package....a Vera Bradley bag! Are you kidding me? I adore Vera Bradley! Then I saw the recipe...can't wait to try it this weekend! and the cute red recipe cards and the darling red polka dot Kleenex that will be so darling in my red leather purse....did I mention that I love red....and polka dots???? Then the really fun bracelet from the 80's (which I am wearing in the photo with my super cute apron :) Then I opened the package that you found in the antique mall.....OM goodness! I don't even own pinking shears...or should I say I didn't but I do now!!! Then finally.....I opened the apron package and I LOVE IT! You are an amazing seamstress! Beautiful workmanship! I was so touched by all the love and care you put into this. I found myself just getting really emotional. I feel like you know me. This was better than anything I could have ever imagined! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
