She filled it with a Happy Birthday glass pendant she made, and all kinds of sweet things for art that she knew I would love!
You know I will have fun with all of this! The Blue Chip stamps bring back such memories! And when I look at that Dresden foil "25" and think that I am twice that -- I just have to do a double take! No pun intended! Kathy has the best stuff!
She included a "5" as a reminder of the decades that have passed! Plus -- two resin pendants which were not quite ready as of this writing.Karla, who is in the midst of one of her huge and fabulous swaps, sent me this package...
Bonnie and Angela surprised me with this amazing work of art necklace! It is made of vintage beads. The necklace is hand hammered silver covered copper, and the beads feel like iridescent blown glass but are probably an early plastic.
I am so excited to be able to wear my new necklaces to work from now on. At the job I just finished on Friday, necklaces were impractical and always getting caught on things and/or getting lost/dirty so I had given up on dressing nice. I am looking forward to being myself again at my new job! Which starts today!
Just to make you laugh -- here is the one gift I did NOT appreciate receiving for my birthday!
I tell you the truth -- I gasped out loud when I opened the envelope and saw what it was. Ouch!
I used to tease Dennis about getting these all the time. I guess it's my turn, now!
