Bought myself a present

It isn't very often that I buy myself something other then supplies. I buy supplies often and sometimes too often.*wink*
I love art. All kinds really but folk art and especially for Halloween is my favorite. I have made many pieces of art over the years and have only kept 3. Two are for halloween and the other is a snowman I will never part with.
So when a good deal comes around from a artist that I admire I snag it up. It is almost always Halloween. This time it came early for me. I had seen Tonya I fell for the spooky one.

I had to have it and was a good deal too. I got it yesterday and it is so wonderful. You can't see all the details until you get it in your hot little hands. LOL It will look perfect with a stitchery I did up a few years ago. For now it is hanging in my room. I am enjoying it along with a few of my other special art pieces.
She also sent along some paper pretties for me to enjoy. Everything was wrapped so very nice. She is a excellent wrapper. Thank goodness to cause it looked like the some Post office on the way drop kicked my box. I kid you not.!
well I have to go finish up some bunnies. One is done and the other is so very close. Don't fret I will share tomorrow. Then must get moving on other things. So many projects so little time.
Have a excellent day.

yeah i have seen the post office truck years ago just tossing in packages in his truck..a gal I used to work for said her ex (works at the PO) said they toss the ones that say fragile on em. so they can't be trusted..just get insurance...sad..but I don't trust em either...:)

Well I have seen video and Dh works as a clerk for the P.O. and has seen some just toss them around like nothing. I am lucky my mail goes through his office and he does the packages but don't ya know this week he is home on leave... So who knows what butt head is handling my mail but fixen to get fired up if one more box comes looking like that.!
The post office loves me this week. box is fully of goodies. Tee hee.
Thanks sweetie

Phillane E'lee said...

You are right Gina. I mail anything extremely fragile ups. It cost more but worth it in the end. Makes DH mad cause he works for the P.O. but I tell him his office don't throw them but there are offices that do. Those darn machines do the most damage he says.
I have in the past though mailed fragile and I mean- egg shells in the usps and just double boxed them. They arrived fine.

I always write fragile- and thank you! It really makes the difference.

Hi Pea!!! Loving your new purchase from Tonya--isn't she just too sweet! Drop kicked packages?!!! OUCH!

Hi Pea..

Oh... what a treat to yourself ! Tonya's creations !... Lucky you !

I would say most postmen are careful.. there are always a few, though, that get a tad mean..

Yes, Tonya's packages are wonderful and always make you feel like it is your birthday.

Thank you Linda. I can actually say I now have a collection of her works. I have three pieces.

Yes, most postmen are good but that is the same everywhere you go.

Hi Pea,

Thanks for your sweet compliments on my crown. You really should give it a try. Hey, if I can do it, you can too!


Phillane E'lee said...

Thanks Jamie,
I think I will order some stuff and give it a go.

~Tonya said...

So glad your cone arrived safely, after the drop kick. Shame on them.

Thank you so much for your purchase, Pea. I am so happy that you love it. You are such a doll for posting it.

I have not stopped in for a while...so sorry about that.

We all need to spoil ourselves every now and then.


Phillane E'lee said...

It is all good Tonya. No worries my pet.
Now go spoil yourself!
