A surprise? Or maybe...a bribe!

I left the house for a couple of minutes this afternoon and when I got home there was a delivery on the porch left by Mr. Brown Uniform. I was expecting a package from Karen with some wool and silk that I had ordered from her, but inside the box, along with the wool and silk, were these wonderful gifts...."just because". I think I'm going to rename her JustBecause since she does this quite often. The snowman is so cute. Wait...is that Emma on his shoulders? Oh, and that candle smells just like fresh pine. She must know all about our fake tree. LOL.


She and I are doing a winter swap, but that isn't until next week. OK, Karen, what's the deal? Hey.......


maybe she hasn't finished Block 1 of Jan Patek's Girl Gang which we agreed to post on the 5th of the month. I just checked her blog and don't see this little block posted anywhere. Aha....a bribe! Yes, Mrs. JustBecause, I CAN be bought! Seriously though, thank you for the giftys. I love them.

I'm almost finished with my decorating so hopefully will start posting pictures in the next day or two.

Hugs, Anne

No better reason than "just because".....lovely to get a parcel when you aren't expecting it! I ahve been decorating the tree this afternoon and putting together a little package of goodies for my daughter who has just moved out with her boyfriend and they don't have a tree.....! they are both students so money is tight....so I have a little tree and a few decorations to start them off.....just because!

Karen's awesome. I'm thinking we need to have a little sit-down with her and explain the finer points of how to make a profit LOL!

Ha - you think it could be a bribe - well now I hadn't thought about that but it's coming in handy since I'm not ready to post my block yet - working on it this afternoon with a hopeful post on Monday. Soooo will this count as a bribe - pretty please, LOL.

Hugs - Karen
