When I returned to my desk from lunch the other day I could see that someone had left me a little gift while I was away. I couldn't imagine who it was, and I'm one of those people who tries to think of every possible person before I look at the tag (it drives other people crazy). This gift made me giddy with delight. I kept it right where I could see it the whole day as it made me smile with its cuteness and thoughtfulness.
I always draw a blank when it comes to cute things to do with mason jars, but this is so stinkin' adorable! Lime green and red (yes please!) with cute little embellishments, a pin cushion on top, and fabric and buttons inside. Let's check out the fabric--
Yeah, those are matryoshka and polka dots. What a perfect gift. I don't want to take it apart--I want to just sit and look at it. It came from one of my crafty buds at work that I sometimes get together with to make things. She does paper crafts and jewelry, and makes some really cute things. Thanks, Teres!
Thing 2. I told you all that I bought my dream car back in May. Recently MINI sent me a "yay you bought a MINI" package with a few goodies in it. A really nice notebook and pen set, a mousepad, little things like that. They sent me one thing that it took me a few minutes to figure out what it was:
I thought it was an eraser, then decided it was just a cute little thingee that serves no purpose. But hang on--
Wouldn't have figured that one out if they hadn't printed the size on the bottom. It's so teeny, too! I hope mine will handle ok in real snow--this one seems to do ok :)
OK, here's a third cute thing. A cute thing that needs a trim, but cute nonetheless.
And here's a blurry Christmas tree! A tree that my dad insists is NOT leaning, but totally is.
And here's what my tree would look like if I had a toy camera--
I'm glad I don't have a toy camera. I have enough photo problems.
Well, kids, my last day of work is tomorrow. I'm looking forward to lunch with friends, early dismissal, and lots of cozy doing whatever I feel like in pajama pants and slippers. All. Day. For almost 2 weeks. I love this time of year!!!!!!!! See you soon!
