My Funny Valentine (Exchange)-Part 2

I promised yesterday to post on the delights that Lynne sent to me but I got a pinched nerve.  Can you imagine?  I am just getting over this nasty cold and then I pinch the nerve in my right shoulder.  It's very painful.  The last time this happened was Christmas of 2004.  Well, I'm doing better today - I slept all night with my heating pad and took plenty of advil and I'm hanging in there.  I'm even feeling good enough to post again!  Yeah!

So, getting back to Lynne's Box of Wondrous Delights....

Can you believe how she punched out Starbucks bees?  My heart started getting that I'm touched feeling before I even opened the box.  

Once the box was opened there was multitude of cuties to open.....
Do you see this vintage sheet music?  It's all about bees!  How perfect!

Then Baby Bee had all sorts of fun things to open.  She kept saying, "This is just the nicest lady ever!"  She was a huge gigglefest!  It was a joy to watch.  Thank you for that Lynne.

Then there were little crafting delights....

I am going to have so much fun with all of those!

Then there were all the heart shaped treats and the Mary E. tin and frame.  Love them!

Clearly she has read my blog!  Chocolate pudding!  The BEST comfort food in the world!
There were even more things I missed getting a picture of - like the espresso candy.  Delicious!

Thank you so much Lynne for my first ever swap.  It was so much fun!  And thank you for becoming my friend.  

And thank you my blog friends for stopping by and just making my day for leaving a kind comment.
