Wow Pooch!!

I went to my PO box yesterday and picked up the most AWESOME BABE box from Carol aka Pooch. I'm right in the middle of packing and my camera cord is nowhere to be found, but I will post pictures. In the meantime, let me tell you about this wonderful surprise:

I knew from just looking at the box it was going to be special, because the address label had two bunches of cherries stamped on it -- my favorite design. Once I got home and wrestled with the packing tape, the first thing I see is adorable tissue paper printed with hearts and knitting needles carefully cradling several precious packages. Each article was wrapped in pink tissue paper and tied with bow made with thin black ribbon - so elegant! After fondling my new soft skein of yellow Encore yarn while reading a sweet note, I carefully started opening my bundles ... first a Mary Engelbreit cherry cell phone tote. How did she know my family just LAST NIGHT bought me a cell phone for my birthday?!@?! A spunky little magnet was attached to the outside of this package. Then I moved on to the bigger parcel .... it is a matching ME cherry zippered tote! Absolutely the thing I need to corral all my cosmetics I insist on keeping in my purse. And then, the best of all, a brand new book, Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise - I just LOVE books, and I haven't read a memoir in a long time plus this has recipes. Lastly, tucked inside the book is an inspirational magnetic bookmark.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Pooch. What a delightful treat. I've wrapped it back up, and it's going straight to my new bedroom as a reward for when I finish with the movers tomorrow.
