Happy Mail Day!

 I received both of my ornaments from the Flickr swap today.  They are awesome.  And let me just say, it is so refreshing/exciting/great to get fun mail.  Really makes a blah day special.  Say what you want about "snail mail", but try getting something like this via email!
The above ornament is from freidazzzzz.  It is a beaded Christmas tree with buttons for the topper and trunk.  It is quite small, but very cute.  I have all but decided to only put up a mini tree this year (if I put up a tree at all) so this will go perfectly on said mini-tree.  It came in an adorable little box, all wrapped in tissue paper.  So fun!

The other ornament came from mandalin18 all the way from Australia.  I was so excited by that fact that I posted a photo of the package that had the sender's complete address showing.  What a dummy!  Anyway, the moderator pointed it out to me, so I took another photo to post.  I had to leave the "Australia" part visible, though.  I don't think I've ever gotten mail from that far away before.

Anyway, it was the cutest package, all wrapped in tissue paper and closed with stickers.  Then, inside was this cute Christmas cone ornament.  What a fun place to hide a surprise, like a gift card or piece of jewelry.  It reminds me of the May-day baskets we used to make when I was a kid.  We would fill them with flowers and hang them on someone's door knob, then ring the bell and run away.   Anyway, inside, was a package of Cadbury chocolates called Snow Babies that I have never seen here in the US.  I hate to open them because the package is so cute.

Thank you freidazzzzz and mandalin18 for making my day!
