A few days ago, I was surprised by a particular email in my inbox telling me I'd been secondarily picked as the winner of Mary's Monthly Marvels giveaway. A squeal slipped out, though I'm sure Mary could not hear it all the way in Baltimore. Yesterday, that package I'd won made it's appearance on my front porch. Madre found it and brought it in for me, and the minute I heard of it's arrival, it was all I was waiting to go home for.
This month's box was themed something along the lines of "the extraordinary in the ordinary", and 'twas delightfully filled with all kinds of goodies that made Silkworm and I ooh and aw, like the adorable umbrella socks I'm wearing on my feet right this very moment (the same pair I cooed over when I saw them in Target a week or so ago).
Oddly enough, but perhaps appropriately in tune with the theme, our favorite goodie happened to be the neon pink tassel tied around the Clueless DVD. I took it off and tied it around my neck as a necklace for the night.
In a word--marvelous. Thank you so so much for everything, Mary--and a special thanks to Chewy Tulip for the cutesy clothespin! It's currently holding my favorite photo I've ever taken on my string lights in my bedroom. I can't say it enough: thank you, thank you, thank you!
