The kindness of blog Friends....THANK YOU Chania....!

Dear Friends be you of the Shabby, the Vintage or the Junk variety....!!!!

I hope this quick post finds you well & happy....I'm currently in the midst of complete & utter chaos trying to get ready for my flight to the US....No matter that it doesn't leave until 6am.TOMORROW....There is still MUCH to be done....!!

A few moments ago there was a knock on the door I opened it to find the Aussie post dude standing there with a heavy looking package....I was SO EXCITED....ESPECIALLY to be receiving a parcel on today of ALL DAYS....!

It was from my GORGEOUS & STYLISH Friend Chania over at Razmataz....!  Chania had mentioned a while ago she had popped a little something in the post which I thought was an incredibly sweet thing to do however, I thought it would be a small bit of 'tat' she had discovered during her Treasure Hunting forays....I NEVER would have guessed it was a book that weighs in at CLOSE to 4kg (9lb)....Needless to say, the shipping was M-O-N-S-T-E-R-O-U-S & I am overwhelmed by the GENEROSITY of this lovely lady....!

The book is called In Flagrante Collecto (caught in the act of collecting) by Marilynn Gelfman Karp & there was a note tucked inside that simply read:

I thought you would find this book interesting - It was down to $10.00 at my bookstore - I couldn't resist sending you a copy.

I can't tell you how OVER THE MOON CHUFFED I am Chania....I can't wait to sit down with a coffee to read it....!!

I've said it once & I'll say it again....Blogging is a WONDERFUL thing....I would NEVER have met Chania if it weren't for blogging....I do feel very VERY fortunate....!!

I must fly....!!

Cheers for now,
Tamarah :o)


  1. What a great surprise! You will have something to read on the plane now. Have a safe journey my friend!

  2. What a fabulous surprise for you to receive from the very beautiful Chania! I am not surprised by her generous gift to you at all:) Chania is a very special lady indeed!! Enjoy your fabulous book Tamarah and happy packing!! ~ Tina xx

  3. oh... that is fabulous... I think I might have told you about this book... it is one of my favourites. I have an extra copy still in its bubble wrap if anyone is interested. It is $120 in that giant book chain (B-hord-ers), but I will be able to do it for half price for fellow SVJ'rs.

  4. Blogland sure is a wonderful place to be a part of.
    What an amazing gift

  5. Hi Tamarah,

    That Chania is a real sweetie and I love her blog, too.

    Safe travels to you!
