It's A Really Good Thing We Have A Big Mailbox!

LOOK what arrived today! The giant plane load of misplaced packages finally landed in Portland and this delightful gift from Candace in Athens, Ga., made its way speedily straight to me. I thought it was an awfully large package in which to deliver a paper doll.
You can imagine my surprise when I opened it up and found layer upon layer of wonderful, delightful bubble wrap. (I love bubble wrap because that's what I most often "paint" with.) And inside the bubble wrap was this most beautiful thing: a specially bejeweled dragonfly picture!!
It wasn't one of her paper doll girls that I thought I won; it was this lovely beauty. (Do you think she knows I collect dragonflies?) Can you see Candace's picture in the upper left hand side? What a nice touch. Thank you so much, Candace! I have been very blessed lately, winning Julie Fillo's giveaway of prints and then this. Too much! But thank you, all.
It's been a good day. I got an X-ray today on my hip that's been hurting lately, but to tell you the truth - after all the exercise I got camping - I've been feeling much better than I did. I think sitting around at a desk too much in front of a computer is seriously bad for the body.
So with that, I'm going to shuffle off and move around a bit. Got to write a thank-you note tonight, also - femminismo

Oh Jeanne, I am so thankful they redid and reposted with no fuss... Say, that paper background? It's one of the napkins I received from Ro Bruhn's giveaway... remember. I said I was going to share. Now you have some of Ro's giveaway,too.

Wow, THAT's how you get those fun circles and spirals... haha. Good ol' bubblewrap.
Have a good one. I am off to Physical Therapy!
Your Pal in Athens.
