Did you ever have somebody give you something just because, for no real reason, no holiday, not your birthday, just plain ole "just because" This is what today is all about, Sheila from over at The Quintessential Magpie sent sister & me a big ole box"just because"oh course if it comes to my house , it's all mine, right? LOL being the sweet sister that I am, I took the box over to sisters & we opened it together, just look at that box. lordy what could be in such a big box lol

snow! bless her heart she sent us snow! LOL naa it's Styrofoam peanuts, boy I'm glad I headed that off & opened it at sisters house LOL

we filled a garbage bag & then some before we got to the bottom LOL, finally the bottom, only to find things wrapped in enough bubble wrap to wrap a body LOL LOL

once we freed everything, sister started taking pictures, she started ripping like a little kid at Christmas, I had to stop her & make her read the tags, I felt like that little kid on Christmas story, "that's mine!" "that's mine"! LOL here is my 1/2 of the box

Thanks sheila, for being such a sweet friend, if you haven't met Sheila yet go by she wa also the winner of our Autum Annie, whom she is taking through many adventures throughout her blog

Helen, I am so happy you liked your gifts! You are the sweetest one, and I will never be able to thank you for the hours and hours of fun I've had with Annie! She's my new BFF! Mr. Magpie loves her, too. :-)

I'm laughing at you girls having so much fun going through the peanuts. I told them that I didn't want anything smashed or broken, and they wrapped the stew out of it! LOL!

I have another little something for you over at my blog, and this little birdie's not telling. So you have to go over and find out! LOL!


Sheila :-)
