Overdue Thank You!

Please bare with me while I once again play blogging catch up! I owe a huge overdue THANK YOU to my wonderful spoiler from Secret Pal 11... the one and only Dianne! Dianne has been an incredible spoiler and its so funny because we read each other's blogs way before SP11 even started! Its really awesome to get someone you already "know" in a swap and even more fun to a get a spoiler that knows you too!

My wickedly cool reveal package arrived last week... and looksie here at all the wonderful goodies Dianne sent. Everything was wrapped up in pretty pink tissue...

It didn't take very long for me to tear in to it all...

I got some awesome stuff! There is a beautiful skein of Shelly Dyes Sock Yarn (love, love, love the colorway!), some "N" post-it notes, a gorgeous hand blown glass Christmas ball that I absolutely adore (Dianne explained it is made by local glass artisans near her, where, get this, she's a curatorial assistant at the Museum of American Glass! What a cool job!!!), a Willow Tree trinket box (a friend started me on a collection of the Angels, this is my first box and it is the girl w/ doggy "Friendship" box - very cool & so appropriate!), The Yarn Harlot's latest book "Casts Off" which Dianne got signed for me when she was in NJ last month (totally awesome because I have her other 3 books signed but was unable to attend Stephanie's signing in Mass earlier this year to get the new one... Dianne, you're the best!) and last, but certainly not least, some gourmet Patriots dog cookies for my kids & Sophie (who's still here... we're not quite counting her as "Doggy #4" yet, but........)! I'm not sure where in NJ she managed to find Patriots cookiees.... ha ha!

If you're a regular, you know I can't ever take swap package pics without curious on lookers.... this one is Lola & Teutul.

Here's a close up of my signed book and the cookies...

The kids were very somewhat patient while waiting for their yummies... Zeus gave his best "C'mon Ma... I know those are for me!" look.

A couple more curious noses popped in for

a closer look while I was trying to snap a pic.

Sophie finally got up to come see what all the fuss was about. Look at Lola's eyes in this one... can you say C-O-O-K-I-E?!?!

I don't have any good pics of them with their cookies because they scoofed them down so fast, except for Miss Sophie...
