It came! It came!

Secret Pal 10 officially started on March 15th and to my surprise I received a package in the mail last week. So soon! I wasn't expecting it, which made it even more exciting. I couldn't wait to open the box and see what was inside. Once opened, everything was wrapped in pink tissue paper with pretty stickers holding them shut. (I would have/should have taken a picture, but that would have meant waiting to see what was wrapped up.)

My secret pal sent me a card with beautiful peonies on the front, which happen to be a favorite of mine even though I love all flowers. Three balls of Dale of Norway Sisik yarn in a luscious deep shade of red. I think I see a preety scarf in it's future. A set of bamboo dpns. Some earl grey tea and a cute little saucer shaped like a teapot to hold your tea bag. Some Godiva chocolate - yum! A bar of rose scented soap. And last but not least, a whimsical book called Dancing With Cats, which has photos of people dancing with their cats. Who knew?!

Thank you Secret Pal!!! You made my day! I loved everything. : )

I'll leave you with this photo from the book.

For those of you who have furry feline friends (and I know who you are), go on and get your boogie shoes!

Brilliant stuff. Looks like your SP figured out your colors too. I have some of that exact same yarn. So why did I buy different burgundy tweed to make my wicked? I forgot I had it in the stash, of course. lol

Looks like you got a great SP! The book looks like fun--next will we see pictures of you dancing with Nikko? Or maybe Jeff dancing with him? I have to say, my fuzzballs don't do a whole lotta dancing, although Simon can get some great footwork going when it's suppertime and I'm not going in the right direction!

Your Secret Pal really choose some lovely gifts. How fun they are! Hope all is going well with you, Annette.
