Nothing excites us more than receiving something in the mail. Something real, something tangible. E-mail and tweets can't compare to a big package with your name on it.
Yesterday was a red letter day for me -- I got three boxes!!
The first was my birthday present to myself -- which is a closely-guarded secret until I show it to you later this week.
The second was an adorable HANDMADE birthday card from Ashley which had me rolling on the floor laughing. She's so funny.
Loren and she's a delightful person in Louisville, KY. Loren's outfits are adorable; her personality is charming; and her blog is entertaining. I strongly encourage you to give her blog a look.
For Halloween last week, Loren and her boyfriend dressed up as Roger and Jessica Rabbit (from "Who Framed Roger Rabbit"). When the curly-haired boy suggested those costumes, Loren said she'd do it -- but only if she got to be Roger and he was Jessica. He good-naturedly agreed and their costumes are cute.
After the holiday, Loren's boyfriend didn't have any further need for the size-12 women's red shoes they'd thrifted for his costume. Loren, to her credit, thought of me as a potential recipient and I gratefully accepted her offer of the shoes. They arrived yesterday and are quite cute. Bright red pumps with a kitten heel.
I've never worn a kitten heel -- have you? How do they feel on your feet?
Anyway, I plan to incorporate them into an outfit soon. When I saw the shoes, I thought of Dorothy from "The Wizard Of Oz" whose ruby red slippers are every girl's dream. Now I have my own!
