a toast of thanks





















Plus, on this day The Fan and I decided to hang one quick roll of wallpaper on Loopy's bedroom wall... it only took an hour to add some teenybopper pizazz to her room:


Do you agree that nothing says "teenager" like cheetah print mixed with pink walls?



And of course all the while I am hanging wallpaper and obsessing over the shape of my face I am planning on:



... about just wallpaper and the state of my cheeks. That seemed to be foremost on my mind today. Until:


Well now, this is a mystery. Upon opening the front door I found a gift bag containing the lovely Martha Stewart Cooking School book. Alas, there was nary a card nor an inscription.

Perhaps it was left by mistake, said The Fan. Someone borrowed it from your neighbour and returned it to the wrong house.


Oh, no. But then I couldn't keep it.

Who could have done this? Have I been the recipient of a random act of kindness? Surely, this is a generous, lovely and random act. It deserves a proper thank you.


Don't you agree, Dear Reader?


Well as much as he looks like Andy Samburg, I just wanted to include this picture in my post. There is no way it was Buddy Budderson. He just really sometimes looks like Andy Samburg.



And so, to you, whoever you are, dear friend and random kindness distributor, thank you from the bottom of my heart and the tip of my slightly enlarged nose.

What a wonderful surprise!

I just love the creative format of your posts, by the way. Superimposed thoughts on Martha Stewart photos are almost always fun, but particularly so here.

OMG- you are so flipping funny!!

Laura said...

Love the room do-over - Loopy has a fun space! Don't you hate Martha? How can she get so much done in a day? Oh yeah, the STAFF she has - if all of us only had STAFF, then we could spend all day blogging and crafting!

You lucky lucky woman! I have that book reserved at the library but I won't be getting it any time soon as there are five others ahead of me. I'm dying to just buy it! Your post had me totally smiling. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I had to laugh/gag/laugh/gag again at those Q-tips on your last post. I taught Junior High at my church this past spring and oh how I would have loved to have made those and did some relay race or something involving how many Q-tips can you eat or something or other. They loved gooey games. Ew, not me but those would have been priceless!!!

Wish I had that kind of random kindness in my life! The goodies all look awesome!Another reason to love Qtips!

Sandra D said...

Wow - lucky you. Some one was inspired by your generous spirit. Every one says it is better to give then receive - but a good "get" every now and then is good for the soul.

Starshine said...

Isn't the new book one of the BEST?? The Q-tips totally grossed me out! But I know my 12 year old would LOVE them!

Chris said...

I LOVE the wallpaper! Soooo teenage girl! :) I wish I had secret admirers like you do! Wonder who it was...

Dayle said...

Bit of a random question...but do you get your apothecary jars at Home Sense? I'm been searching for ones I like, with no luck. Great post today!

Hilarious post!

I was wondering if you can share where you got the leopard print wallpaper. My laundry room is screaming for it!

Saucy said...

No place special! Home Depot, the in-stock wallpaper aisle. It was under twenty dollars and that wall took way less than a roll!!
