Surprise Happy Mail!

How wonderful to walk to the mailbox and receive not one, but two surprise Happy Mails!
 Inside each I found much to smile about!
I won the magazine from Em's Scrapbag as she celebrated having her Baby Blooms pattern published in this edition! How cool is that! (And how lucky am I to now have a copy of it!)
The other was a surprise from my good ol' blogging friend Nita.
Her personal letter touched my heart and certainly made me smile...oh the eye-spys did too!
I can't even remember the last time I wrote a hand written letter?? Can you??
Yet, as we prepare for Thanksgiving, I find myself sentimental as we dig out old family recipes.
I smile at my mom's handwriting and am always amazed as I reflect upon the advancements since my own Granny's days of typed (like typewriter typed) recipes that are to this day, kept tucked in my mom's  Betty Crocker cookbook. So grateful I preserved these in a scrapbook so many years ago.

Well, Thanks Em and Nita. 
I've ever grateful for the support and friendships found in our little blogging community.

  1. Love the cookbook / scrapbook idea. You have some precious memories there.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.


  2. I really love handwritten letters. I miss getting fun letters in the mail, it is all junkmail now. Lucky you! Happy Thanksgiving Val.

  3. happy thanksgiving and how good to have reveived 2 surprises in the post. I still write with a fountain pen, still do not know hoe to write a letter on the computer!

  4. Hope you had a very Thanksgiving! Congrats on the fun winnings. I usually hand write thank you notes and I've gotten a few when I've been fortunate enough to get those type of fun squishes in the mail.


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
