A Romantic Surprise...

I was patiently waiting for a little romance from my mailman today...

Well, not exactly from him of course but from the box which he was delivering! Today I received my very first swap gift!

Envision this picture if you will...I am at work, I am sitting at my desk, I am nervously looking at the priority box in front of me in fear of opening it...exactly why I am in fear at this moment I am not sure but I will tell you what was running through my head at that time...

1.) Will my little tag that I sent to her live up to this wonderful romantic creation in this box that I am about to open?

2.) Will she actually like my little tag that I sent her and not just throw it in a drawer?

3.) Is the tag I sent to her her style, her colors, or is it romantic enough for her?

Then I got over all that and tore into the box...And when I did, I felt like it was my birthday! She had me at the beautiful little muslin bag embellished with pom poms and stamped with vintage Paris!


I peeked inside and not only was it the most beautiful romantic tag I have ever seen,

She added all kinds of little extra surprises!

Okay, I was definitely feeling the Romance here!

I had everything laid all over my desk...then a customer comes in for an estimate. (Remember now, I own and work at a vehicle collision center...there is nothing pretty or romantic anywhere in sight) I greet him with only a corner of a smile and regretfully put my romantic goodies away. As soon as he leaves, I am turning off the lights & I'm out the door to hurry home & take pictures so I can share this with you!

Tiffany @ Shabby Scraps was so sweet to ask me to do a "Romance" tag swap with her...

Thanks Tiffany, I love, love, love, love, it!!!! All of it!!!!


It was a lovely surprise...I love her style and if you haven't read her blog or shopped through her must take the time to do so. She is awesome. I cannot wait to meet her at Silver Bella in November. I just hope that by the end of the week when her mailman brings her some romance, she will feel the same way I did today!

You are oh to sweet miss Jodie! I love the story that you were at work surrounded by "guy" stuff! I am so glad you liked your little bit of romance from me!
I can't wait to open your tag too!
This was a lot of fun!
