I've Got Mail!

I have been really spoiled in the last two weeks with wonderful packages from all over blogland! Each one is a real treat!
The first came from Alex at Soapalaya Soaps from a naming contest I participated in over at Keeper of the Home. Stephanie has a beautiful new natural living website and writes from an area I used to call home! I can't even describe the wonderful scent I experienced before I even opened the mailbox. Bliss! The fragrant package was filled with all sorts of natural and handmade goodies: soap bar, shampoo bar, lip balm, laundry detergent, facial cleansing mask, detox bath soak and more! Thanks, Alex and Stephanie! The second package came from The Homespun Heart for a drawing she had for participants of Spring Clean 2008. This package was the icing on the cake for the results I saw in our home from that challenge! Monica put together a wonderful package filled with fun, fun things including a handmade green dot purse (love it! love it!), a yellow gingham apron, a Gooseberry Patch Crockery Cooking cookbooklet, a hand-knitted dishcloth, a bit of Satin Hands treatment, and some Pledge Dusters, along with a cute little card that she made with one of her signature envelopes. It was such a treat to receive something from Monica whose blog inspires me daily.
And the third package from a new-to-me blogger whom I found through a comment she left on a friend's blog. Jenny at Frugal Vegcafe sent a great package loaded with fun things for spring: blackcurrant tea, gardening gloves, tea lights and tea light holders, napkins and napkin rings, chocolate orange cookies, handmade note cards and lavender bath salts.
Thanks to all the the above ladies for their generosity! These packages have been an encouragement to me in these last couple weeks as we have been without a second car. Checking mail every afternoon is an event to look forward to, especially now that I am home oh-so-much!

Look for a giveaway coming here soon! Happy Friday!
