Santa Lives in New Zealand

The mailman rang the bell yesterday and delivered this. I was on the couch where I am growing roots. Another week went by and I accomplished nothing at all. Ihate whining. Here is my list. My hip is a mess--surgery is in my very near future.The shoulder on the opposing side is also a mess, haven't even started that evaluation. My cold is clearing up but my ears are flared up with the loudest roaring you have heard. Meniers in the good ear is getting active. Ailments depress me. I am a good caregiver and a horrible patient; I am depressed. BIG TIME.


What? Out in the universe someone was thinking of me! That is humbling.
Will you look at this? Can you believe how pretty? Awh shucks--*wipes eyes*

And it's heavy it feels like it's full of rocks. *Laughs*  ooooooooh what is in here?

Nobody sends rocks from New Zealand.
It's full of more goodies. Have you noticed the price of postage lately?

Look!
Look at this, chocolate! The little pillow is full of fragrant herbs. The silky black bag is for lingerie. It has a cute corset appliqued on it, that didn't show in the picture. Trust me it's adorable.

She even sent an extra cute button. The bag is just incredible. You would not believe the stitching she does. It's all made by Chris, from diet Coke Rocks. Her blog is now private but if you are nice and want to be invited that can be arranged.
I love to read blogs where women are making things. I don't sew much any more but I like to see what others do. It's just fun to see what people make, and how they live and what their interests are. I just love people.
But let me tell you, this present just blew me out of the water. WOW.


This is a cup that was in the bubble wrap. It is toooooo cute!
Perfect for my coffee.


And the card was also handmade.I am so classy I read the card last. I already KNEW who sent it!  It made me think of Santa Cruz. Beach towns have the same feel all over the world. What a woman this lady is ; and what a friend.
You blessed me socks off, you sweet tart!
