Over the past few months I've received some truly faint-worthy things by way of mail. Giant boxes stuffed to the max with sweet surprises! Before I dissect the piles, assigning places to each item, I take a pic immortalizing everything together... something I can look at as often as I want - so the memory of receiving it comes flooding back in waves & I can keep alive that feeling of overwhelming gratitude. Eventually I want to post pics of almost everything bestowed upon me in the past few years from treasured friends. Since I could certifiably be qualified as the female Forgetful Jones, I can't imagine a cooler way to keep track of snaily love.
I'm going to start with my most recently received package, a giant box of birthday goodies filled to the bloody brim from my friend Des! I'm talkin' crammed to the max with the most exciting stash of all the things I love and covet! Things from in my etsy faves or stuff she dearly thrifted! My Raggedy Ann & Andy & Betty Boop collections got a massive dose of fresh new merchie (old & new) and oh my gosh, I thought I'd BURST from my delight! I literally shed TEARS and had to re-learn how to breathe! Gems purchased from etsy shops I always have my eye on, butter cream birthday cake lip balm in the cutest faux vintage packaging, buttons, pins, prints, dollies, VINTAGE VALENTINES! By the time I found the bottom of the box I thought my chest was gonna split from my elation! I love this girl so much. She is one who lives for others & whom loves with no holds barred. It seems a cruel twist of fate that I can't throw my arms around her and squish her lovely lights out! Above is just a sprinkling from the WONDER LOAD she sent me! I will NEVER in my life dare forget such a gesture - nor take her love for granted. Working on a GREAT BIG MONSTER thank you box, myself, in fact! I loooove my Desiree. She's pure damn gold!
