♥ A Big Surprise ♥

 I found this package on my front porch, with a huge tear in the cardboard box. As the box was stamped FRAGILE all over, I was scared to death the object inside might be in pieces.

and it was from my good blogging friend, LV of MEME'S CORNER.

Due to her careful packing, everything was alright.
OMYGOSH....
when I saw this AMAZING little tea pot, 
I sucked my breath in so quick, I got strangled and dizzy...and am 
pretty sure I passed a small amount of gas...
O, LV.......I LOVE it.
Thank you so so much.....





Every thing about this is so cute...
it will find such a great spot in my dining room.








and, a little added BONUS to this amazing gift...

Our own FIFI does the most amazing paintings and she turns some of them into the prettiest NOTE CARDS.




 Thank you so much, LV.
I just LOVE it and it goes so well in my house.
Every time I look at this sweet and whimsy piece, I will think of you.

Passed a little gas? By now you should also be able to sneeze and cough along with that!

Mmmmmm, what's with mailing? I had something come, with a rip across it too. Grrrr....

And yours was even marked FRAGILE.

Lovely that the lovely contents were not hurt though!!!!!!!!

Gentle hugs...

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Oh 'BJ,' I must tell you..... Every time I come here.... I get antsy and *in lust* with your WHITE BACKGROUND, etc. I do. You just drive me crazy, Girl. ,-)

But when I try to do-it-myself, it looks boring. Not cute and sassy and precious, like YOUR blog look always is. -pout-

-giggggles- Well, I guess I'll stop pouting. It would be boring if every one of us, did our blogs in the same way! B-O-R-I-N-G!

So right now, when I seem to be in a kinda'-dark-magic-forest-look-feeling.... I'll just keep running with it. :-)

But wanted to tell you!!! I "think" this, every time I come here. I finally told you. :-))))

Gentle hugs...

LV said...

BJ, I cannot believe that the package got so damaged. When they saw fragile marked on it, they decided to test it out. So glad it did not get broken. The nice lady at the post office was so helpful. I will tell her about it. Your are one of the craziest and kindest ever. I love doing things that makes someone happy. Enjoy, and think of an old Texas biddy once in awhile.

And you got a such a treasure for a surprise. I love things like that. (whimsy and surprises both)

Jama said...

That's a very cute tea pot!

Ralph said...

Cool teapot - I notice that the chicken has a surprised look on her face...maybe being cooped up in the shipping carton did that. I notice the large eyes look almost like fried eggs (with a yellow yolk). Perfect for a hen!

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Teapot? That's a teapot? Well, my goodness, I'd suck my breath too! Glad you got it! (Now you can breathe again!)
