Sweet Surprises

Imagine my delight
when I arrived home from work Friday
to be greeted by a sweet surprise
sitting in my mailbox!

What a wonderful way to end September!

The talented Linda R from
sent Banjo and I
lovely gifts!

After opening them,
I went to get my camera and was
NOT surprised
that Banjo had jumped up onto the kitchen table
to see what the lovely smell was
that was drifting down to his nose below...




A nip mouse!!!!




"I'll just take that if you don't mind...."




"chompa chompa licka licka slurp slurp..."




The wee mouse looks a little surprised
to be getting devoured so quickly...




And the treat for me?
One of her lovely creations that I had
been eyeing up that was featured here on her blog.
How cute is the cat card
along with such creativeness
on the envelope as well?




Thank you so much Linda!

Banjo and I love our gifts!!

Wishing you all a
lovely and warm Sunday
full of sweet surprises!

I love Linda's work and then, I just want to squeeze Banjo who probably would be insulted with so much attention. Love the photos!

Dearest Catherine,

Banjo is adorable! What an expression on his face; like he really said those words himself! Guess you manage very well to speak for him!
Lovely package for beast and his human parent!
Love to you,
