Finally...You've Got Mail!!!

    After pouring rain for days now, and an aching shoulder that...OUCH!...won't respond to pain pills, heating ointment, cold, heat, or nothing...YAY!! I got mail!! And more than one piece of mail too!...The first though, was this lovely air mailed package from...
    ...Australia!!! Remember a couple of week's ago when I was telling you about being on planettreasure's blog reading about her cute little guinea pigs and then Lo and Behold, I saw that I had won a surprise gift in her Giveaway?! Well, this package was the gift! It came yesterday!!! I couldn't wait to open it to see what I got!! (I hope she doesn't mind me sharing. ^_^) 
    It was wrapped up tight too!...But I got into it alright!! :-]
   It had all kinds of goodies in there!...A beautiful postcard...
    Some cute business cards from two of her etsy shops. planettreasures, ...
   and a shop of hers that I'd never seen before, BoosTees...
    BoosTees is great! It has cute things in there, like these Knitted red strawberry fingerless mitts!
    While looking around her shop I checked out her announcement and found out that she also has a destash shop called planetdebris! I had to check it out too!...These Green Square Millefiori beads were in there...10 for $2.00!!
    Okay beaders, you better run over there!!
BACK to my package!!! Look at the beautiful earrings I won!!!!
    In trying to photograph them I got a little sense of what it must be like for all of you gem beaders to get good shots of your jewelry!
    I'm sure MY photography is not doing them justice!! ^_^ But at any rate, I wanted to share. Thank you so much my fellow blogger Pal!!! I didn't comment on your blog to get the free gift, but boy am I glad now that I did comment!!! I may have to wear these next week on my Date Night with the hubby!! :-)
    The other package was this!!!
     I told you I was going to get him...and I did!! :-)) He might just be responsible for me getting a couple of extra minutes of sleep last night too! Every time I woke up and saw I went back to sleep again!! Ha! Ha!
       (The poem I'm sharing today practically wrote itself yesterday. I was watching the rain out of my windows all day and It kept rambling around in my head. I wrote it down and was going to try to add some more stanzas to it later....but I found that these few lines said all that was needed to be said!)
    OH YEAH! Don't forget to comment below and leave your email for the GIVE AWAY!!!


The place where I am at my best.
A place of calm and peace and rest.

The place from which I never roam.
'Cause it's in my heart, this place called home!
