Big Surprise in the mail yesterday

I went off for the day with my friend, Betty Ann. We took a ride to Plymouth to the shops at Village Landing, across the street from the waterfront where the Mayflower is.  I wanted to go to the bead store not simply beads to see what they had new. http://www.notsimplybeads.com

At the bead store I bought a few strands of beads. Pink pearls and crystals. Then we browsed around in some of the other little shops. Saw lots of nice mermaid items that were reasonably priced and got lots of ideas for creating some mermaid items myself.  Then off we went to the Christmas Tree Shop in Marshfield. Didn't find much there, but had fun poking around.

Got home, went to the mailbox and there was a heavy box from Susan Mc Henry who belongs to an online group that I am on. The RAK that Susan sent me was unbelievable!!!! In the box I found 74 Prismacolor art markers. (including a Prismacolor blender pen and metallic silver and gold pens) My jaw about hit the floor. I can't thank Susan enough. I had planned on buying a set of 24 at Michaels with my birthday gift certificate, and a 50% off coupon.  Wowzer!!!!  What an awesome mail day, don't you think.
