I'm one of those people who can't function properly when I'm feeling rather blue. But time waits for no one and is sadly wasting away so I decided to do something productive. I ended up polishing a silver candelabra I recently thrifted. Nothing like repetitive, brainless movements to keep your mind off of things. Wipe on. Wipe off. Then I heard a knock on the door! It was Mr. Fedex Man bearing a huge package for me!
It was my package from the Package Exchange Project from my lovely partner, Stephanie of Church Clothes! It was hard restraining myself from tearing off the box into pieces while I took pictures. It was so exciting and so much fun! It was definitely a lot better than repetitive, brainless movements! Receving a package is like receiving happiness in a box! For a while, my sickness and my blues went away.
Stephanie did an awesome job picking out items for the exchange. Almost everything was thrifted and definitely old school! I love it! She sent me an awesome red vintage purse, a cute leather belt, a precious little Trifari owl pin, stickie notes, a heart ice-tray and dog tail wall hook from Ikea, and a mini bubble gum dispenser from the 80s. I was in absolute heaven! I immediately scrambled for coins to get some of the Skittles that were inside the bubble gum dispenser. I love Skittles. I have fond childhood memories of Skittles.
Thank you so much for your package, Stephanie! Your thoughtfulness and creativity is greatly appreciated. Plus, the timing of your package is just perfect. Nothing like a good package to lift you up when you're down. Thank you so much!
Now, I'm very excited to see what everyone else got. Please feel free to share some of your photos so that we can post it in the blog for all to see. This was definitely a good idea and I'm certainly going to host another one soon. I will keep you all posted!
