Mad Tea Party

Making my daily trek down the hill to the mail box
can be, on occasion, the highlight of my day. It's a
simple ritual of turning a key and unlocking a
designated box. What makes my routine anything
but ordinary is the contents that lie just behind the
locked door. Any day can feel like a holiday when I
open the mail to find a hand written letter, a favorite
magazine, a vacation postcard, or an unexpected gift
from a friend. Last week was a stellar postal week
when I unlocked my box only to discover a small,
whimsically wrapped box from the über talented
Lori of RetroRudolph's.
This darling little Halloween Tea Pot from Lori's
Mad Tea Blog Party giveaway will now hang
year round on my Halloween Tree. Oh happy Day!
Stop by Lori's blog to see her other beautifully crafted,
vintage style paper maché holiday art pieces.
