    Default Twinkle's Elf

    I had a typo in the last post so I don't know if you saw it. Thank you so much. The box arrived safe and secure. I am going to wait until Christmas to open, AND the part for my computer came. I think that you sent me good luck too !!

    WOW elfie I got cool stuff! I got my second present box yesterday. I took some pics but they haven't uploaded yet. I think everything in it is artisan made- love! I got this amazing metal horse for my wall, painted macaw coasters, a horsie keychain, and a sweet little welcome sign- all wrapped up in the coolest woven grass bags! My Bonnie will try and eat the bags, so they are staying safe in the house with me . Thanks again to my awesome elf!

    WOW. Many, many thanks to my SS - whoever you are! - for the beautiful Equiglas tree ornaments. How funny that they sat UNDER my tree 'til I couldn't stand it, only to open the box and find out its contents needed to go ON the tree! Beautiful horse head stained glass ornaments, each with a sparkling bow in Christmas colors. By FAR the highest-quality Christmas items I own!!!! Thank you SO much!!!!

    To The Max,

    I haven't forgotten about you! This elf has been very busy making holiday preparations and has just recently found time to go to the post office. Your package is on its way and should arrive by the end of the week! I included a card with my COTH username so the suspense will soon be over. Hope you enjoy your goodies and please do let me know when they arrive!

    Sweet Mutt!

    Your package will be mailed on Monday Priority, so should be to California by the end of next week, I'd think. Due to schedule mayhem - it IS a busy time of year at the North Pole, after all - I've had trouble finding time finishing the homemade portion, but it will be done this weekend. There are a few things in the package that were on your list, and there are a few which were branching out a little, and of course, there are munchables. Hope you like your package!

    I got my package today!! I'm sitting here trying to fight the temptation to open it. I have the feeling that it will be a losing battle!

    grinanride, my package arrived today!! The poor mailman had to trudge up two flights of stairs in the snow (what little amount we get in far northern CA), then while I was wrestling it into the front door, my dog got out and chased him down the stairs...so it arrived with much fanfare. I'm behaving and waiting until Christmas to open it...it's sitting comfortable under the tree, taunting me! I can't wait to see what's inside...

    THANK YOU and Merry Christmas!

    I'm glad you liked them! I wanted one gift to reach you for sure before Christmas. The others are Haitian made and I figured you would like them, but wasn't sure if I could find someone going to the US in time. We truely did have a Canadian Invasion for Thanksgiving week, who chuckled on hearing about our COTH Thankgiving tradition!

    One in particular that is wrapped very well in bubble and written on "fragile" has had quite an adventure....It was 40-50 years old to begin with, and had gotten prettied up and fixed for you-then it ran away and hid under a shelf-then my kitten stole part of it. Then while I was fixing that part again Another part ran away under the computer. Finally I got it all fixed again and corralled in bubble wrap- but don't take off the bandages- it is a squirrely little thing! (And you are free to guess what in the world it could be from that description )
    Aannndd shifting gears - ShayaAlliard and I were also SS swapees. The mystery gift is a model horse, very much a Paso Fino type, repainted like my pony Hoover right down to his brands! One front leg once broke at the cannon, as well loved models often do, so Model Hoover is wearing polo wraps. (trot paired leg to the one Pepo broke in real life, for those who are wondering). Thank you Shayaalliard!

    Otherwise, I got a coffee mug with a Horse comic which is absolutely PERFECT! I broke out laughing when I unwrapped it. With the critters' pen just outside my house this comic is SO TRUE to real life! Well, it's my cat and not the horse usually hanging upside-down off the roof saying good morning. The mug handle broke in shipping, but hey, with a little superglue it will all the better fit the theme, bonus points!

    I'm still opening everything else a few at a time. The calendar is cute and useful, the halter looks comfy, the mint juliep mix looks interesting and you did a ton of wrapping on all the other little goodies. Thanks again!!

    Your big package is leaving tomorrow morning. But don't be alarmed -- I live about 4.5 hours away, so I have faith it will get there in plenty of time. I will also send you the tracking number, so you'll know when to expect it.

    I haven't heard from you in a while, so I hope your last package came through OK! That particular company is based out of the town where I work, and we get plenty of their goods at my company and I adore them! Hope you liked them!

    Dearest and most patient KPF,

    Your Santa has been shopping today.
    Soon some wonderful things will be on their way.
    I have just a little local flavor
    to add for you to savor.
    Your box will be leaving this week.
    I hope these were the gifts you seek.

    So I'm getting concerned... I sent out my ss package over a week ago to my person (only a few states away) and haven't heard anything. I can't for the life of me find the tracking number, but she should have gotten several days ago... I stalked her blog and she's not out of town... what if it got lost!?! Ahhhhh!

    Dearest Elf, the package arrived a while ago. I was good and put it under the tree until last night. I opened a few things like the peanuts, but haven't opened the card or anything wrapped yet. I'm TRYING to be good. I will post again after the big day which we do on the 27th here this year.

    I'm sorry about the mug handle Bad postal reindeer. I did insure it, so I can replace it if you want me to. I hoped you'd like little mini hoover- I painted him myself . The picture frame (if you've opened it) was a work freebie that my boss said to send you, but it isn't perfect-wasn't sure about that either. I had a lot of fun shopping for you, and receiving from you too. I've never done coth secret santa before- will definitely be back for next year.

    WAH!

    I have PMed my giftee several times and she has logged on a couple of times since receiving her gift and no word from her. ( I am assuming she received it since it has not been returned to me). I put a lot of effort and thought into my gifts for her and I would like to know if she liked them.
