I had been out and on my return home found an official note from the Postman to say he had tried to deliver a package but it was too big to push through our letterbox and so I would have to make arrangements for a later delivery. This was Friday afternoon before our Bank Holiday weekend. I thought and thought about whether I had ordered something that I had forgotten about it or what on earth was I due to receive? I just drew a blank all the time and all through the weekend my mind kept coming back to what it was the Postman had not been able to deliver.
Through the internet I managed to arrange delivery but it wouldn’t be until the following Tuesday!!! The whole weekend my mind worked overtime!
Then Tuesday arrived and the door bell sounded. I ran down the stairs, opened the door and smiling acknowledged the Postman! Amongst the normal mail he passed to me a squarish looking package. Then I saw the name and address of the sender! The excitement juices were really working now!!!!
Rushing up to my workroom I picked up my scissors to carefully unwrap this well packaged parcel. The brown paper came away to offer a box that gave no clue to its contents. Carefully I opened the box which revealed a beautiful parcel in pink tissue paper tied up with a gold ribbon thread. My fingers were shaking I was so excited!!!!
I won’t go into the story as to why I was the incredibly lucky recipient of this ACEO but suffice to say it made me so happy! It was ‘Nonnie’ from a group called Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team (or BBEST for short) who had so thoughtfully sent me the ACEO and its very own stand. She is such a talented artist which I am sure you will agree when you have a look at her shop called ‘Nonnie’s Treasures’. And, above all a thoroughly lovely person too!
THANK YOU, Nonnie!!!
