Thursday was a great mail day.

Seriously, I felt spoiled.

When we got home from whatever random trip to Lowe's/Walmart/grocery store, we checked the mailbox at the bottom of the drive, and this was waiting for me.  I think it was just last week that I won a giveaway on Chris' blog.  Chris makes the prettiest aprons, so I was really excited!  LOVE the fabric she used -- especially that pink floral!  Plus, she packed some nifty scrap supplies!  Thank you so much, Chris! 

When we got to the house, there were not one, but TWO packages from my parents!  Mom sent my birthday gifts out this week.  My Instax and plenty of film was in one box...this camera is fun fun fun!  I'll share some of the pics I've taken once I get a chance to scan them. 

And my aqua vintage camera was in the other.  You might remember this camera from this post. It fits perfectly into my rapidly growing collection.  Aqua cameras are cute!

And, this was my "card".  So perfect! 

She picked it up for me because this toy from long, long ago still has a prominent place on our bookshelf. 

Thanks Mom and Dad!  You always make my birthdays so special!  Love you!  :)

What a fantastic day for you!!!!!! Yay!!! so happy you like the apron and scrap stuff. I adore that aqua camera! Aqua is the coolest color and I love all the funky things that used to be made in aqua, like cameras, typewriters, etc. Have a happy and safe 4th!!!!
