Gwen and I have been chatting about our blogs, our lives, the challenges of balancing both, and all the good things that have come since we've started blogging. She got involved in a pay-it-forward gift giving party, and chose little ole me to receive her gift!
Well, I'm knee-deep in rehabbing our recently moved-into house so I wasn't up to sleeping on the porch while waiting for her package...which she did when waiting for her package. She's kinda nutty that way.

Not only did I get a thank you note, a cute Bold Abode orange daisy clip, music mixes direct from Gwen and Cassie at Primitive and Proper, but a completely amazing bedazzled measuring tape...which will get used in my
But that's not all! The main gift is a beautiful wooden box, painted out in a lovely shade of teal, bordered with glitter, and stenciled with lyrics from a song.

Thank you so much Gwen for giving me this amazing present when I least expected it! It truly was like my birthday or Christmas :) Now, I have to go work on something worthy of this exercise...who will I give a special Junky Vagabond gift to? Who knows dear readers, it just might be you!
