I love getting surprises in the mail! My friend Sarah is probably the best surprise sender ever!

She sent me this:

Presents from Sarah!

She just got back from an awesome trip - read about it here... and she went to a sea turtle center. I love turtles, as you may or may not know, and she got me these cute sea glass earrings!

Presents from Sarah!

And this one may need some explaining - but I squealed like a little girl when I opened the box!

Be Fri necklace!

Remember when you were like 12 and everyone had those Broken heart necklaces for Best Friends where half says "Be Fri" and the other half says "st end"? (Well maybe you have to be 30+ to remember this - but everyone had one! If you need a reminder - look here ) Anyway - we were making fun of those necklaces and I started calling Sarah my "Be Fri"... so she decided to make me a necklace out of it! In a much more fashion forward and updated form!!

How awesome is that!? Thanks Sarah - you're the bestest Be Fri ever!

I also got this amazing yarn from Coleen!

Present from Coleen!

It's Tilli Thomas Flurries yarn. It was a birthday present from a yarn shop at Dewey Beach DE - I love it! I've always wanted to try this yarn - but never could justify the purchase. It's it great when someone just gives it to you!?

Thanks ladies!!

OMG! I totally had one (well, one-half) of those necklaces! Still Be Fri's with her, too. :D

Love the gifties. Better watch out for Turtlegirl, though - she's going to be jealous! :D

Wow! You have some wonderful friends and you got some awesome goodies! I can't wait to see what you do with that Tilli Tomas. I have a skein or 2 marinating in my stash. I almost don't want to knit it because it's so nice. LOL
