Happiness is: Packages full of Care

A little bit ago, I blogged about my new best friend - in the form of a coffee maker - that stylish caffeinator, the Chemex. In that post, I mentioned my friend Tammy from Punk Rawk Purl. Well, Tammy & I were tweeting last week about the Chemex filters, and she mentioned the bleached ones might make better tasting coffee than the unbleached. I have the unbleached. We decided to send each other a few of our filters, to test out the theory of bleached VS unbleached. Of course, we couldn't just send one another filters now could we? You can visit Tammy's post to see the Cat Coffee Chemex themed package I sent her.

But this is about Tammy's package to me. Note: I did not take a picture of the filters because I was so enthralled with all of the pretty little things that came along with them! Let me just say, I was WOWed:

Happiness is getting a parcel full of handmade supercuteness!! There was a trademark owl card (of which I admired from afar!), a beautiful bird art piece, a sweet little note, & a pack of Catwoman cards!
Inside that little owl envelope was a sweet handwritten note that made me smile ever so largely.

I immediately framed the original Punk Rawl Purl bird art & put it on my shelf of birds!
Yes, I do have a shelf of birds. It's actually an entire wall dedicated to birds. I like birds.

Somehow Tammy knew I would dig these Catwoman cards. She snuck them in because she saw me tweet about how I'm Batgirl (yup, the secret is out!). I'm a comic book collector, so these cards were purrfect!

this is the envelope all these goodies came in - Hello Kitty Fragile tape? 
Hello happiness!

It's a real pick-me-up, to find a package full of sweet, thoughtful goodies in your mailbox. I'm not sure there's much else that's sweeter. I cannot wait to test out the bleached filter in my Chemex ... I really do love making coffee the Chemex way. It's not just about the end result, it's in the process that the beauty is found (which, might I add, is a statement not just about coffee, but about Life as well).
