Entrenched as we are in the electronic age, we have lost the joy of sending and receiving actual mail, something we can hold in our hands and physically open up. Delivered packages are treasures indeed, am I right? I am right. And did I ever get a delightful one this past week!
Thank you ever so much to Mama Mama Quite Contrary, for the wonderful care package I received this week. I entered a giveaway on her blog, and contrary (no pun intended) to my luck in pretty much every other area of my life (Exhibit A: Tallulah), I WON! People, look what I got:
• a lovely, handmaid tote -- I completely adore this bag!
• the book One Day, by David Nicholls -- can't wait to read it
• earplugs (ooo, it's like she read my mind and heart)
• a humorous handwritten postcard from Mama Mama (who by the way, has lovely handwriting)
• a gift card to Donors.org, allowing me to give $25 to a worthy organization of my choosing
This goody package kicks the ass of every other goody package on the planet. This mama will enjoy every single one of these items. Mama Mama, you rock, and you roll, and you boogie, waltz, groove, get down, polka and shimmy, all at the same time!
Now the bag, people, the bag deserves some attention all its own. Take a gander at this hand made bit of loveliness:
Mama Mama, if you aren't selling these on Etsy, you totally should be. People would pay money for these bags. They are adorable and stylish and just the right size. And I just realized the photo doesn't show the cheerful yellow lining! Readers, please click over to her blog if you might be interested in one of these bags and leave a comment encouraging her to make (and sell) more!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the lovely goody package! If you can't tell, I loved it.
And this, my friends, is but just one reason why I love the blogosphere.
:) Mama Monica
