Surprise Happy Mail

I wasn't expecting anything special when I discovered this in my mailbox today!

There was a tiny pig sketched beside the return address - a definite indication that this was from Ruth of Chatty Crafty Arty Pig. Inside I discovered a wonderful selection of patriotic UK goodies in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee this year.

Ruth wrote me such a lovely note inside the handmade card and those little round punched pieces were hiding scrumptious chocolates inside! I've seen quite a few posts with crafty creations and stories about celebrations in the UK over the past few months and now I feel like I can join in a little bit as I use my new towel, showcase this lovely card, and indulge in a few treats. Thanks Ruth for this fantastic surprise which definitely brightened my day!
