Sometimes I really get concerned about shipping my "ladies", especially when I have to send them to places unknown to me in my general geography knowledge............you know........the places you have to look up on a map because you have no clue where it is??? Lady #54 (Karen) was one of those ladies. Karen lives in South Africa. Now, I'm not a complete idiot, I did know where South Africa was, but the concept of sending something that far and having it get there in any reasonable amount of time was completely out of my imagination. BUT.....guess what? Karen got it in ONLY 3 weeks! Can you believe? E-gads, I've had stuff to Canada take longer than that! Go figure!! So, my friends, let me present, Lady #54 ......Karen:
And here is the nice picture she sent me to work from:
And then...........this is the cute photograph she sent me with her quilt when she got it. (Note the tape measure in her hair to match the one on the quilt.) Thanks Karen! I'm so glad you love yourself! lol
On a different note, I did send Audrey two early readers this week in my decorated envelopes. I've been collecting so many books to send to her, she is going to need a bookcase by the time we're done, I'm thinking. lol Her mom tells me that she gets excited now every time the mailman comes.
That one contained the book, "Diary of a Worm". (Clever, huh?)
And that one had a book called, "Oliver" which was about an elephant being delivered to a circus.
I did find a book about Lalapoosy collectors dolls for my granddaughter so sent her an envelope too this week. She's a bit too young yet for reading, but loves the Lalapoosy mini dolls:
Then, last but not least, Annie got two envelopes from me this week. (She should have had at least 3, but one apparently is missing in the mail.)
It's been hot in California, you know, and I figured she might need to cool off in a kiddy pool. lol
So, that's it. It's been a lazy week. I've mainly been watching the Martin/Zimmerman trial and cleaning up a few things around here. This next week I have to get going on our annual pool party held here every year. Pray for nice weather........please!!! Until then...........
