The Box

A delivery man came to the door with a box just for me yesterday!!!  Why did I get a special package?  Well, a few weeks ago my friend Becky over at Junk to Joy had a give away and to my huge surprise my name was drawn.  The funny thing is - I had not meant to enter the contest - I meant to leave Becky a note on another post.  Silly me!!  But anyway my name came up and Becky sent me a delightful box full of goodies.  What came in this box of sparkly paper?
A beautiful card with such an encouraging note - it cheered my soul!!  (The darling detachable tag will be on my Christmas tree next year!!)
This adorable felted pear has made itself right at home on my mantle - so sweet!!!
This beautiful wall hanging - a reminder of one of my goals for this new year - JOY - is now hanging in my bedroom where I can see it every morning!!
This darling mug (that I am using this very minute) makes me think of lovely Becky in her warm and sunny Florida - and the yummy chocolates are an added bonus!!
And at the bottom of this fun box were these beautiful decorations - I know just where they are going to stay in my living room - I am just looking for the perfect bowl to display them in - aren't they lovely!!
What a wonderful surprise to open my door and have that delivery man hand me this box filled with charming gifts. 

If you get a chance go visit Becky!  She is such an encouragement to me.  She meets life with such joy in the Lord and is a reminder every time she writes to see the world through eyes of blessing!!!  (Becky also has a darling etsy shop!!)

Thank you Becky for your lovely box - I had such fun opening it and ooooing and ahhhing over every gift!!!  You bless me every time I visit you!!!

Blessings,
Christine
