A Wonderful Postal Surprise

Happy Saturday Friends!
Bob and I are back from our buying trip.
We left early this morning due to the rain,
but our van is chock full of goodies
for both our store and upcoming Breckenridge, MI show...
and of course for me :-)
Boy did it rain.
Had about a two hour delay though as we
got into Michigan on I75.
A rollover semi blocked the entire expressway,
and it took forever to get off at the exit to detour
around it...but we finally made it home.
We decided to unpack the van in the morning.

What a wonderful surprise it was to find in my mail
the item I purchased from My Primitive Heart.

My package from Julie was sent to me 
wrapped with JOY!
Something smelled wonderful too!

I then opened the card and the prim pillow I ordered.
Along with the thank you note from Julie.
The wonderful smelly stuff 
was the scented putka pumpkin pods
Julie sneaked into my order.

Once I was done admiring Julie's 
wonderful work, I grabbed a wooden bowl
and placed my goodies in it...even the rose hips
that were tied with the fabric ribbon.

I know that all of the jacks are happy
with their forever home now.
Thank you once again Julie for my goodies!!!

If you would like some spooktacular goodies for yourself,
be sure to visit Julie's blog at
My Primitive Heart. 

Will be sure to show the items I bought in a later post.
For now, I am going to watch some tv and catch up
on my blog reading.

Wonderful Postal Surprise Blessings To All!


  1. Glad you made it home safe and sound Janice. We went back to the fairgrounds this morning and it was half crowds. I guess the rain scared the vendors off a well as the buyers. I managed to spend $11 and then we left. Missed the accident tie up...nice having dinner with you all last evening! Will see you soon!
