Christmas in July

yes, I know it is already August but I did get this in July. Hubby came in from work and ask me if I had ordered anything. Nope, but this box was on the front porch. It was a birthday gift. I was scared to open it - there wasn't much left to open!

But look - everything arrived in tact despite the obvious beating the box took from the post office! My friend Sherry sent this box full of goodies. I apologize for the glare on the glass but I just couldn't find a good place to take a picture - either it came out too dark or I had to have the lights on and they left a glare. The little tin is hand painted - I'll try to get a close up of it soon. That Bareroots project book is awesome and will be seeing some action soon!

I have no idea what the name of the sampler is (or the designer) but if you are interested, email me and I'll ask sherry. 
I failed to get this in the photo with the other stuff (it was by my chair) but Sherry sent me a new study Bible. I am so happy to have it. The color shows up brown in the picture but it is more of a maroon color.

I can't tell you what fun I had pulling things out of that box. First because, well, who doesn't love unexpected gifts and second, I was so happy everything survived with no damage! Even the sampler with the glass on it was in perfect shape! I'll try to get a picture soon of where I decided to hang it. 

Sherry knows me so well, each and every thing in the box was perfect!

Now I'm off to see if I can actually get far enough along on something to share a project!

What a fabulous box of goodies you received, Tina! Love the sampler and I am curious about the Bareroots book. Your post with the damaged box reminds me of the old Timex commercials -- takes a licking and keeps on ticking.
