Mailbox Madness, I mean Happiness

I am BEHIND (Not: I am a behind) on posting about a few mailbox treats. I really never thought about mail until I left home. My mom has always been my heaven sent postal fairy. "Good Mail" didn't find me until last fall while nestled into a hillside deep within the Boise National Forest, surrounded by ponderosa pine and elk.

I recently joined a few swaps. One was for Valentine's Day to conquer my heart phobia. Diane my swap partner sent me a box filled with love-ly dove-ly, pitter patter, yummy in my tummy Valentine items. LOVED IT. Big thanks with x's & o's.

Then, Dandelion Wishes (such a fun blog) hosted a "Favorite Things" swap. This is where I met my cool, sassy, creative and super generous friend Scrappy Sue from New Zealand.
She sent me a lot of her favorite things that are now a few of my favorite things. My eco friendly bag was already come in handy. My lips sparkle as I leave for work. I have had the best chocolate treats for breakfast the last two mornings. THANKS Scrappy Sue and Dandelion Wishes for the mail box fun.

I received a very sweet card from a friend at home! (Thanks P.L.) Jill at Creative Musings & Such, sent me a card with a photo of the gift I sent her. Crafty and cute- Thanks Jill. Love the happy hot pink envelope....

Lots of loven to my mama who sent me some hard to find food that I like and some other goodies. Nothing says love like Combos and Zataran's- Red beans and rice.
