Mail call and mini house goodness!

Our mailman has been busy lately.  Tammy from "Tammy's in Love" sent me the sweetest Valentine card. 
Tammy and I share a special bond with our international adoption connection.    Thank you for my sweet card!
Erica from Golden Egg Vintage and I exchanged Valentine houses.  You can see the house I sent Erica on this post.

Isn't the Kewpie doll just the sweetest little thing!!

She always makes the fullest decorated mini trees.  It's just perfect.  In addition to the little house, she made the sweetest Valentine Bingo card.

She also filled a huge box with all sorts of special goodies.

She even included a paper Chinese lantern which is just perfect for our CNY tree.

To top it off, she also included this dollhouse decorating kit.

 Thank you, Erica.   I've said this before, but blogging friends are the most generous friends.

Isn't this weekend is just speeding by?  I'll have more Chinese New Year pictures to share on Tuesday.  If you enjoy watching the super bowl (I'm all about the commercials) have fun.  I'll be sneaking off to watch Downton Abbey during the game.

Have you been ice skating to celebrate the Chinese New Year too?

Enjoy Downton . . .

I am looking forward to Renee Fleming . . . and a few commercials and no snacks this year! Enjoy the day Kim!

Cute Valentine's treats! I agree, the weekend has just sped by! Watching the half time show right now, but that is the only thing I am really watching. I figure I can catch up with the best commericals on the news tomorrow and on youtube.

Hello there Miss Kim K. :)
I love the card that Tammy sent!
She has such talent with paper crafting. I'm so glad that you like the things I sent. You've been beyond generous to me in the past, and I LOVE my new Valentines House!
Thank you for being such a great friend. Can't wait to see if you're able to put that dollhouse kit to use.

Blog buddies know just what we love. And it's such fun to get packages in the mail. I love all of your sweet gifts from these sweet ladies! Enjoy your week! (Downton Abbey just went off...sure was good but left a lot of questions unanswered for next time!)
