What could be better than to have your REALLY busy week interrupted by a surprise envelope?
The FABBY Lauren sent me a package of LOVE. I was expecting a page or two of an Asian workbook.
I really shouldn't have been surprised, but I was. I mean if you have ever been to her blog, you know that girl just can't do simple. She has a wonderful tendency to embellish. It's a trademark of hers.
I mean, seriously, look at the love I found on the kitchen table one afternoon last week.
(minds out of the gutters ladies. this is a G rated blog)
Here'a a closer look at this fantabulous address label.
I could frame this and be inspired for months.
(note: the names and addresses have been changed to protect the innocent)
I feel like I have won the lottery. Who doesn't LOVE seeing their name. Made out of wonderfully colorful letters. ON an envelope made just for them. Just look at this treasure of printed booty.
(love that word - booty - makes me giggle)
There is Spanish, Korean, Japanese, French, Greek, Croatian and German. And some I can't identify. All are delish.
There are comics, dictionary definitions, encylopedia pages, newspaper, instructions and brochures.
And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I found the answer to the question I asked above,
- ENGINEERING manual pages from a far off land, written in a foreign language. That's what could be better.
OH MY GOSH. It's like she looked into my mind and figured out what would make me squeal with delight.
Being an Engineer, I ADORE these pages. I have no idea what language this is. It looks Greek to me. No. Really. It looks Greek. While I may not be sure of the written words, I KNOW the engineering part. (Insert geeky grin.)
I have used these tools. In English, of course. But I have used them.
It just doesn't get ANY COOLER than this.
Thank you LAUREN.
