Yesterday was the winter solstice and the mail carrier brought a special package to the door. It was my swap gift from Lynn of Rocky Creek Scotties. It came on the exact day. How perfect is that?
It really was too pretty to open. Look how festive it looked. What was inside?
First there was a tin of chocolate truffles. Robert couldn't wait. We had to try them last night. He's even more of chocolate fiend than I am.
Next was this sweet little Scottie box. The box itself was special, but inside was a pair of hand knit socks for cold winter nights.
Finally, there were ten bright, merry doggy print bandanas. With ten dogs, I never expect anyone to give them each a gift. That's over and above the demands of friendship, but Lynn made and hemmed one for each of my pooches. They will be sporting them on Christmas Day so I'm sure you'll see a picture or two with them showing off their finery.
Thank you Lynn, that was a very special gift and it brightened a short, dark, gloomy day. The boxes are appreciated almost as much as the contents. I love decorative little boxes to store my treasures. In my opinion the swap was a big success. Thanks to everyone for playing.
