A while back I posted a picture of Linds and her funny socks right HERE. Both of the girls have a thing for crazy socks and really have never been concerned about them matching either.
Debbie, a silly lady living waaaay over in Japan saw this and thought she needed to add to their collection!
She sent us a great little care package full of fun stuff.
Some funky toe socks, some homemade toothpick origami dolls (they are way cool) a set of Hello Kitty face masks (I love Hello Kitty) and with that swine flu around, we may look stylish and safe at the same time. She also included some Japanese good luck charms that I immediately put in my car!!!
Could you wear these socks? I could not, but the girls just ADORE THEM.
Thanks a bunch Debbie. You are so sweet and my girls have told everyone they know that they have a funny friend in Japan who appreciates funky socks too!
I won a gift from my Michigan friend Shelly (Shellmo) at Building A log Cabin. Shelly is an awesome photographer and fellow tree hugger. (tree huggers rock) She sent me this bookmark and a note card; they are just gorgeous. These are photos that she took in her YARD!!! I am a bit ashamed of my pictures of Ralph (the squirrel) and all my flippin’ mulch.
I just love the quote on the bookmark:
“The butterfly counts not months, but moments and has time enough.”
Isn’t that lovely?
It is nearly as wonderful as the bookmark LoLo made for me for Mother’s Day. I think my girls will have quotes made after the silly stuff they say one day. 🙂
Thanks a bunch Shelly, I appreciate your thoughtfulness!
PS. I spoke with my cuz Chris last night on the phone, he is happy to be back in the good ol’ USA!
Some things/people never change…being in war for a year has not diminished his sense of humor or sarcasm one little bit. Yes, we are related….I missed him and his dry sense of humor bunches!
