Things I've received lately in the mail

I had a great week, it was our wedding anniversary and I received 2 packages from 2 very special people in my life.  The first package is from my exchange student, who's like a daughter to us, from Pakistan.  It arrived on our anniversary, so how appropriate.  It was a huge box, full of goodies.  She put letters in it, jewelry, 2 pairs of shoes, a beautiful sweater, home goods, some knick-knacks and a sweater and hat for my husband, oh, and 2 necklaces for the cats with their names on it.  Here are some pictures.

The end of the week, I received another package from my dear friend and neighbor back in Washington.  She is so creative and talented.  She sent me a journal that she made, along with a box and mini cards, also, that she hand-made.  She also, sent me some other non-hand made goods, such as tea and napkins.  You can check out her Etsy site at:  www.psloveyoudesigns.etsy.com
She makes the neatest hand-made cards, so check out her Etsy site.  Here are some pictures:
