The Royal Mail Arrived

. I love it when the mail arrives. The anticipation of there being something interesting in that little grey vinyl box far overshadows the bills and the junk mail that arrive almost daily. But last week, I had a good reason to get excited about it. . I received a fat envelope in the mail!. But look closer. OMG! I got "royal mail"! I know that I am the daughter of the King of Kings. (Thank you, Lord.) And I know that I'm also a Thrifting Queen and the Princess of Quite a Lot. But royal mail! . Wow; let's open it and see what's inside!! Is this an invitation to the royal wedding?. Ahhhh, not yet! (Must be late sending some of them out.) But this is something that's equally as good. It's the giveaway package I won all the way from the UK from Jeanne at http://www.collageoflife-henrqs.blogspot.com/. And it was a surprise package so I have no idea what it contains. I love surprise packages! . . Let's see what's inside that wrapping. .

  • There's bag of chocolate, 2 gorgeous Cath Kidson tea towels (my first) and a new paperback. How delightful (and delicious). .
Thank you so much Jeanne. I love my goodies; and I love the thrill it brought me just seeing it there. . Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some reading (and some eating) to do. . Happy Monday! . . .

Can't beat the wonderful feeling of receiving ROYAL MAIL.
Sorry it wasn't "the invitation" of the year, but it was the next best thing for those of us who love to read and eat chocolates.
ENJOY.
Blessings, Barb
PS now I have a new book title to check out.

What FABULOUS goodies! Isn't it fun getting "Royal Mail?" One time my husband ordered a set of books from England and they came in a Royal Mail mail bag. I think he was more excited about it than the books!
