Surprises in the Mail

Hey Friends! 
You know there is nothing like getting an unexpected delivery to your door, especially when it is from loved ones or friends who are so far away. My birthday is over so I was not expecting a package to arrive addressed to me!


What a nice surprise! A taste of North Georgia in the form of grits, pancake mix and buttermilk cornbread mix...YUM! How about this fun card signed by my sweet Grandgirl Ellie, in green crayon. That just makes this Nana's heart melt :)


These 3 bags are filled with fresh stone ground goodness at the Logan Turnpike Mill in Blairsville, Georgia, where I once lived. You never realize how much you miss this kind of treat until it is no longer available anytime you like.

 It's no secret how much I LOVE grits and my daughter Brittany and my sweet SIL were so thoughtful to send this package to me as an after birthday surprise!

Back in December I received a package all the way from England! It was from my tea cup exchange buddy Dawn, from At Home in Cornwall
She sent this lovely card :)


Also with the card was this adorable handmade heart ornament! It looks great on my tree and I also plan to use it as part of my Valentines Day decor!
Thank you Dawn! I am so grateful for your friendship :)


Take some time to visit her blog where she shares her darling handmade vintage and shabby chic items and also lots of DIY projects!

  2. What a wonderful surprise to get in the mail, Karen. Don't you just love to get things through the mail? I LOVE grits. You can't get them here. There is not a single restaurant here that serves them. I buy them online and make them for myself. I like them with real butter/salt & pepper. My husband tried them and doesn't really like them unless he can cover them with heavy cream and sugar. YUCK!!! lol

    What a sweet little heart from your friend. I will pop over and check her blog out. xo Diana

    1. I know Diana...grits are so good with butter! I like mine with cheddar cheese too! My darling tried them and does not care for the taste or consistency. Oh well, that means more for me...LOL :)

  10. What a wonderful gift from "back home". I've never had grits before but they sound delicious. I know you always hear about them in the south. I love the gift from your tea cup buddy, very cute and perfect for Valentines. I guess I missed your birthday so happy belated birthday Karen!
