Gifts from a tea drinking friend

I've had a bevy of gifts this week from friends all over the world, and this gift came from Pat at Artfully Ooglebloops.


It seems many of Pat's tea Tuesday friends got similar boxes. Mine started with some lovely stamped fabric. Yep, I LOVE fabric. Hiding underneath was sheet music.


Once the above was removed, I saw some lovely goodies I can rust.


There was also crocheted items and more fabric. I was not sure what was in the plastic bag, but once everything had been removed and I smelled the aroma in the box, I realized what I was looking at was lavender. I adore lavender!


The fabric was next,


then more crocheted items.


Next was a bag of buttons and a squeeze brush, something I had never seen before.


Underneath that were two of these "do-hickeys" I have wanted for a long time. I suspect Pat made these using a template. Under that were some wall paper samples.


The red box contained bows. By this time, my mind was racing!


Inside the gift box were even more gifts: cocktail umbrellas, a rusty lid, jewelry to be taken apart, cards in French (at least I think it's French), and TEA. Of course, Pat couldn't send something to a tea friend without sending tea. Thank you beyond belief, Pat. What a generous thing and so sweet of you. Sorry I can't thank Pat by e-mail, but it is still not working. But the appreciation is no less heartfelt.
