I love my mailman

or should that be "mailperson?"  Ak, I don't care, I love him.
I recieved two One World, One Heart prizes this week-lookeee!!!
First from Anna McCurdy of QuiltMom's Journey, a lovely bracelet
(which I promptly wore to work today).
Isn't it wonderful?  I asked for black (she told me I could choose) cus that's what I wear mostly.
Lucky, lucky me!
And here's the funny part.  After flying all around the world for the OWOH Magic Carpet ride, Anna lives about a three hour drive north of me.  That cracks me up.
THEN, from across the ocean (and it arrived in the same amount of time, which I will NEVER understand), from Jan of Jan's Arty Journey I received this precious matchbox chock-full of little treasures.

(I've photographed it on the tissue paper it was wrapped in, as I love it and plan to do some encaustic art with it!)

Did you  hear my squeals of joy as I explored it?  Well, actually, the squeals started when I unwrapped it.  You must have heard them.  And I am so NOT a squealer.
Lookit the tiny beer can!  How cool is that?  Who knew they drink beer in the UK?
Like I said, Lucky, lucky me.
I love my mailperson.
I really do.

  7. Glad that you liked the bracelet- and that it fit too. That is always the trick.
    Your little box from The UK has many fun things in it too. I love mail days like that too.
