Greetings Everyone. A few weeks ago I opened my front door and to my surprize there was a package on my porch. I thought who could this be from. So I brought it in and took it to the kitchen to open it.
It was from my dear blogging friend
Michele from The Nest at Finch Rest
Then I remembered. PAY IT FORWARD. Someone had payed it forward to her and she was now paying it forward to me. A gift that she made. And I was just SO excited.
Well I had NO idea what I was going to have to go through to open this gift. (Big Smile) When I finally finished I decided to nominate her for for the best package wrapper ever. It took me 15 minutes with scissors, 2 knives and alot of ripping which didn't really work to get into it. I was laughing so hard. I felt like what a baby chick or baby duck must have to go through to get out of its shell. I could hear the gift inside the package calling to me....I'm trying to get out I really am.
Now you need to first get the first box off. Oh so much packing tape.
I know you see the flowers sticking up....but you have no idea how beautiful the rest of me is. Oh good, you're getting there. Oh I know that styrofoam...but it has really protected me and kept me safe and sound. You've almost made it. Just some more tape.
I know its hard to pull out but keep trying. Yay you're almost there.
Whew you made it.
Aren't I just gorgeous. Oh THANKYOU for getting me out. Now I will make you so happy everytime you look at me. You will know all the love that Michele sent to you. And its all right here in my flowers and cup.
And she even dressed me all up with a beautiful ribbon.
And here is the front of the darling card she attached to me.
And here is the back. Isn't Michele just wonderful!!!
A HUGE thankyou Michele for this very lovely gift that you made me. I will treasure it and I have it displayed prominently in my home. You are a dear!!
And thats exactly what I am going to do. Stay tuned for my next post and see who I am Paying it Forward to.
I will be participating in some of these linky parties:
