I told you all not long ago that I recently got a Post Office box so that I'd have an address that I could share with you all, because I frequently get requests for my address. So far, in my post office box, I've received 2 pieces of junk mail, 1 coupon for a free Chipotle burrito (yay!), this beautiful card by Heather Ruwe and the gifts and card in the photo below, from Rachel Sztonyk! SO sweet of these girls to send me cards and treats. I wanted them both to know how much I appreciated them and how much fun I had trying to figure out what to do with the key that showed up in my post office box, telling me that I had a package in one of the post office lockers! (Who knew the post office had lockers?!) LOL! Thank you both, Rachel and Heather!
I also wanted to thank each of you (including my dear neighbor -- thanks, Pam!) that have let me know that a version of (the Australian cookie....er....biscuit!) Tim Tams are distributed by Pepperidge Farms in the US and are sold at Target. Bart brought home a package of the Classic Dark variety and I now say that there's no need to bother with any of the other varieties of Tim Tams. Classic Dark are the only way to go. :) They are delish! And for the record, what we call cookies here in the US, the Aussies call biscuits. But Aussies....if cookies are biscuits, then what do you call the 'biscuits' that we eat for breakfast with gravy??? :)
Next topic.....(I told you this was a random post!).....I mentioned awhile back that my sweet, hottie hubs bought me a Pandora bracelet for my birthday back in June. He got me a beautiful purple Murano glass bead (his favorite sports team wears purple! HAHA!!) and a few silver beads (I'm a total silver girl. No gold here unless it's white gold.) and my sis & bil gave me a dark green bead too. Well, since then, I've been a good little girl and haven't bought myself any additional beads for my bracelet. That's all about to change though!!! Check out THESE BEAUTIES!!!
They're wood beads!! OH, aren't they just gorgeous?? You KNOW how much I love brown. I wear it. I use it on cards. Brown is my black, I always say, so these beads would go with so much that I wear! Bartley and I were at the mall the other day so we popped in to the Pandora store and saw these for the first time. They're SO pretty in real life and that soft yellow one.......perfection. In real life, it's soft and buttery enough to be fairly neutral. It looks awesome paired with a couple of the browns. I'm sorry to ramble on and on about jewelry but goodness, these were just too fun to not chat about! :)
And lastly today in this long list of randomness, I wanted to let you International readers know that I have lowered the international shipping charges in my Etsy Shop by quite a bit. I was under the impression that my packages would be heavier than they are, so I was pleasantly surprised when shipping a package to Italy last week, that the shipping was much lower than I thought it would be! SO, if my earlier shipping charges scared you away, you might check them out again.
And stay tuned to my Etsy Shop because I've got lots more fun embellies coming soon!! :)
