My Friend Joanne

Great things come in small packages! That certainly was true for me today when the mail was delivered. Look what came in the mail for me today!

My wonderful friend, Joanne, sent me a package consisting of wonderful and marvelous items! Joanne sent me the gifts as the results of me being a winner in a Christmas Trivia game that we played. Her smart, beautiful daughter, Jacquelyn, came up with the quiz and fortunately, the songs lyrics were all my favorite songs. Now, let me share with you my prizes! The picture above was every thing in the package. She sent the 2 blue pens and candy canes to my boys. Wasn't that thoughtful?!

Look at this adorable little primitive ornament. Joanne, did you make this? She is an incredibly talented person.

And, I loved this little snowman and bookmark. I have developed an affinity with the snowman over the years. I used to be afraid of them when I was a young child - go figure!

Thank you Joanne for a wonderful treat for me!! You are the BEST!!!!


  1. Ah yes! Joanne is just the nicest person. And she is generous and giving and touches those of us who are fortunate to know her. And this gift has gone to another loving and giving lady ~ you! Enjoy your wonderful gifts and I bet the boys will love those Texas pens.

    Have a safe and Happy New Year. May 2009 be a year many of your dreams come true!

    Hugs ~

  2. Oh what lovely gifties you got. I love that pillow, everything is just so nice. Enjoy!!
    Happy New Year to you and your wonderful family. xoxo
