We're humble, too. Well, some of us are.
It's actually happened to me a couple of times now...all I do is
I know lots of you know Sweet-a Rita over at Soul Comfort's Corner. She does lots of beautiful artsy stuff with all kinds of cool supplies that I would have no clue how to even begin to use. She also has a beautiful cat named Karma.
I know some of you question my love for cats after reading about my own damn cat. But I really DO like cats. Especially other people's cats. Because they don't live here and I don't have to feed them. But if they bite me (which some do) then I pretty much don't like them. And can you really blame me?
No, I don't think you can.
I also love not having to take other people's cats to the vet.
Anyway, Rita did a post about a tea club to which she belongs. Rita is an avid coffee drinker (I am not) but she also dabbles in tea. I told her of my interest in learning about loose teas, along with their health benefits, and just like magic! I got some tea in the mail! She sent me a lovely assortment of pre-bagged teas as well as some loose teas. She was also kind enough to send me some disposable filters and a "sword" to dangle the filters over my mug.
I was dumb enough to lose my sword.
It was probably a seppuku sword in a previous life, and with no samurai to disembowel, it plummeted off the countertop and into the garbage can while I wasn't looking. You know it did.
But no worries! I'm simply using an old shish-ka-bob skewer and it works just fine.
Rita sent me a lovely hand-made card along with a hand-written letter! I think that was my favorite part. In our world of computers and e-mail, I can't tell you how nice it was to get something hand-written!
Doesn't she have lovely handwriting?
Now I'm sure you're wondering about the spider part of this post. I know lots of you also know Karen over at the Feral Turtle. She's hilarious. She's also been on a spider-making rampage as of late, and they're awesome. And I don't even like spiders. But hers have personality and are not terror-inducing.
She asked when my birthday was so she could send me one. She also said I could lie about it in case it was a long way off. My birthday is actually next month! She's up in that Canada place, so she figured she'd better get it sent out so it would get here in time. I love early birthday presents. :)
She also asked what color I liked and I said red. We're kindred spirits in that we're both Battlestar Galactica freaks (well, I'm definitely a freak). I have a
Girl Crush #6:
Isn't she beautiful? Either one.
I also got a hand-made card from Karen. And a shampoo bar! Apparently my hair stinks and she can smell it all the way up there.
#6 wanted a tea sampling, so she crawled into the basket. Her legs look a little wonky there. She may have slipped on some wine on her way in.
Well, that about wraps things up for now! Thanks a million to Rita and Karen...two wonderful blog friends!
And as Karen would say, "Cheers!!"
