She Really Does Exist.....

For days, weeks....ahhh...months, I've been reading about a strange phenomena in Blogland.....
Mysterious (and LARGE) boxes of goodies arrive at doorsteps around the country filled to the brim with delightful prim goodies.....
All by the hand of one kind-hearted, and overly-generous soul, known as Linda Parker (a/k/a "Linda Claus") from *Parker's Paradise*.
Well, folks....it's true...she does exist.....

This past week, when I finally summoned enough courage to once again go out my front door (you know, the one by the "snake tree"), I almost fell beak first over a very large and heavy box on my porch.....
It was packed full of so much fun.....


(Not the best picture I know, but there was so much to try to cram into one photo!!)

Anyways, there's a wonderful little wooden "seed" box with greenery and drieds and the cutest little miniature rusty garden tools; a "Happiness is Homemade" picture; a round crocheted table cover; a vintage embroidered table cover; a round painted box; some great old wooden clothespins; a wee basket; a little tin candle holder with a battery-operated votive inside; and a round painted box......And bestest of all, some of Linda's wonderful hand-did's and make-do's: An awesome candleboard with candles (I've wanted one of these Linda...ever since I saw them!!); my very own, personalized ticking pinkeep with my name and a "red-breasted" birdie; and some "cotton balls" that Linda made especially for me cuz I loved hers so.....
  








Thank you, so much, dear Linda for blessing my home and touching my heart....again.....

Hey--did you know that this gal on your sidebar--Me and My Stitches--is my neighbor? She lives about 4 miles from us and have never met. Now we are chatting through blogger and all because of you! Thank you so very much. It is a small world, brought closer together by sweet people on the blogs.
As for the gifts, you make me smile so very, very often and bring me into a better mood. I am very appreciative of that. I am selective about who I call friend and you have definitely captured my attention. I hope we continue to be friends for many years to come.
I am glad you like what I chose for you and what I made for you. I know I have limited skills and I am glad that what I do makes people happy. Lucky for me, prim doesn't require precision!
Have a wonderful weekend, my fine feathered friend!

That box of goodies was definitely worth a trip past the snake tree! I'm beginning to wonder if Santa's elves are spending their summer vacation at Linda's.

OMG Again!!
You must have the knack girl for winning! We have a casino here, maybe you should come on over and rub some of your luckiness off on me! lol.
Congrats on the great win!
And have a lovely week ahead, the mailman must be working overtime visiting you!
Cindy

Theresa said...

I'm with Cindy! You sure are a lucky crow! What a wonderful lot of gifts! It almost makes up for the snake in your tree! I swear, Robin, I wouldn't be able to use that door knowing that it was out there. I'm not sure there IS enough therapy for me for that! When I was much younger and I lived in the cabin up north, there was an outhouse but it was invaded with a snake nest. Did I go in there? NO WAY! I will spare you the details, of what I used for a potty, but it was not going to be out there!
Enjoy all of your winnings, your house must be completely decorated with bloglove by now!
