I was so excited when I found the sushi. I knew I wanted to add something for the kitties but it was just perfect. 6 pieces so they could all have one.

And contraband or not I knew I wanted to get you a glitter polish. That one called to me. I really hope it turns out good

Thumbs up

I'm so glad you liked everything! Yes, the list helped, but I did have an inside edge after having met you. That initial caught my eye and I knew I had to buy it, it's got a little sparkly to it!

I know, we do need to make a trip out there to visit friends we've left behind.

Take pictures of your manicures and post them on the Nail color thread.

A BIG thank you to sarah42! I received your package on Christmas Eve. A card, Esperanza Spalding CD, which has already been played in my car and will be played many times more, and a pretty red necklace made by an anti-poverty group. Great cause, and my favourite colour!

Thank you again for your thoughtfulness, and best of the season to you and your family.

Hooray! I'm so glad it arrived! I was fearing that something had gotten held up in customs and was delayed.

I hope you enjoy the presents--I've bought other beaded jewelry from that organization and I think they are doing great work to support women and promote entrepreneurship in Uganda.

Happy holidays to you and your family!

Speckla, your package arrived!

It was addressed to the wrong city and Zip Code at first, so it may have caused a delay. Apologies if I sent it incorrectly to Rou!

I just got through the awesome wrapping. It's too dark for phone pcs, so I'll post before going to work tomorrow.

Buddy & Lily appreciate the note from Patches & Crew!

Time to make the "dom" pic public Speck!

It's awesome that they were able to find you in the end, RCC.

Y'ALL!!! For real!!! I'm so excited!!

We pull up in the driveway and there is a box at the door and I just *know* it's my secret curly gift!!

gemidevi!!!! You are the awesome sauce, I love everything soooo darn much.

I apologize for the pictures being big, but I'm so excited to get this posted I don't want to take time to figure out resizing.

First up is this scarf, this HELLO GORGEOUS scarf. The color is beautiful and I cannot wait to wear it. Even Calvin was impressed!



These two bracelets. The square one is an enameled blue with a hinge opening and it's so pretty. I don't have a bracelet like this and I just adore it. The other is a stretch bracelet and the beads are iridescent so it's all different shades of color depending on how the light hits it. Love, love both of these! I never would have picked them out for myself (I'm a bad shopper), but I'll wear these a lot.



Wheeeeeee, more stuff I love!!! I got a pretty lip gloss, some pumpkin spice coffee (YAY!!), soft fuzzy cozy socks that I love, a scarf and gloves set that is gray with some silver sparkle thread running through it, and a set from Body Shop of bath goodies in mango scent. What is great about the bath goodies is I sent my secret curly the SAME darn thing, but in vanilla scent!! Gemidevi and I obviously have very good taste in gifts. The card is too cute, this is one I'll be keeping because I love the picture on it so much.



I can't thank you enough. I love each and every thing and will use it all!

That's great! I'm glad you like it!

I had it when visiting a friend in NH, and had never seen it in stores here, so remembering you like tea (and are always cold!) I bought us both some when I found it.
