Well, sort of...
My Kuwait Treasure that I'm referring to is not "in" the package that you see here below.
My Kuwait Treasure is MY FRIEND who sent me these sweet gifts of thoughtfulness!
I am talking about none other than sweet
She's an American, living in Kuwait with her husband and two wonderful sons, Zack and Yusef.
Through blogging, Tammy shares her "Daily Treasures" of life in Kuwait which include her creative (and giving) heart, her work, her friends, and her travels to surrounding areas on her side of the world. (I love that!)
Living abroad does have it's perks, but during the summer months, Tammy and the boys fly "home" to America and spend time with family and friends.
Sadly, most of her family is up North and I'm here in the South so I can never get a "real" hug from her when she's in. (pout pout)
However, no matter where in the world she is, she NEVER fails to surprise me and let me know she's thinking of me. Whether it's sending me a little card or a handmade tag, I always love hearing from her.
This package was no exception :)))
This is the cutest little passport purse I've seen yet!
(I wonder if she's hinting for me to visit her in Kuwait?) *wink
Tammy and I have been blogging together for a LONG time.
I guess you can call her my virtual pen pal :)
Even though she's so far away, she always puts a smile on my face and makes me feel like she's a neighbor living right around the corner.
This was written on her little card that was tucked into one of the pockets...
"You can add this smiling sweetie to your growing family."
Isn't she a sweetie? (yes, both Tammy and the smiling baby!!!!)
I love baby photos! They make me smile!!!!
And if you look closely, she has a bracelet and a little ring on her middle finger...
Look at that chunkiness!
Yep, she'll fit into MY family just fine :)))
You would think that Tammy would be busy jet setting, sight seeing and enjoying her vacation but...
She sent me another wonderful handmade tag which will go up on my inspiration board with all of the rest :)))
AND can you believe she had the time to crochet a dish cloth for me too?
(& she made it in my favorite "non" color...I'm smiling!!!!)
Don't think she did it for me only. I've been around blog land lately and Tammy's crochet masterpieces have been popping up on the blogs of many of her friends.
How does she do that?
How does she have the time to think of everyone else in the world?
There's only one answer that I can think of ...
(if I'm missing in action...me and my passport purse have flown to Kuwait!)
I have one more gift to open and it is from my sister Karen :)
I haven't opened it yet (duh!) but the weather is yucky because of the tropical storm/depression that has arrived here on the Gulf. Therefore, I don't want to open it if I cannot take photos :(
If I see a ray of sunshine, I'll share it with you tomorrow. If not, I'm wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I thank you for sharing all of these gifts with me.
You my friends, are my greatest gift of all!!!!!
