A Gift from Chile!

Oh how excited I was when I got home from Alaska a few weeks ago. My sister announced "You got something from....Chile?" I jumped for joy! That meant that my giveaway prize from A Measure Of... had arrived from the Southern Hemisphere. Wahoo! The box was wrapped in what looks like pages from an encyclopedia, or illustrated dictionary. The best part? It's of course all in Spanish! I love the International sticker on it. :) It all seemed so exotic!

After opening the package I found a lot more than I was expecting! I mean, I'd won an earring giveaway, but the box was full! Inside I found a whole collection of awesome items from Chile. I was as giddy as a school girl!

First up was the adorable card. I love the photo clipping she pasted on the inside, and her sentiment was so sweet. This lady is just a doll! :)

Next up were two South American candies. They reminded me of the chocolates I ate when I visited Peru two summers ago! I will definitely have to share them with my sister so we can both reminisce. :) Next was a gorgeous green, sparkly scarf! I love it! Items like these are especially chic in Missoula, Montana and I can't wait to wear it around and share where it came from! What a delightful surprise indeed. :) (And the color is perfect!)

Lastly, was a small box wrapped in soft, green yarn. Inside were the lovely earrings I had been expecting. Even better in person! They are so beautiful and unique! I can't wait to wear them out. Oh how I love jewelry with a story! So much better than going out and buying some. :)

What a great treat to get in the mail. Thank you so much Heather! You are far too sweet and kind. You brought one HUGE smile to this Montana girl's face! And for all you other followers out there, hop on over to Heather's blog and take a look. She's right now in the middle of a move from Patagonia to the States. What a process! Her adventures and whit are addictive.



  1. Awwww! Heather is one of my best friends and she just got back to California--I am so excited! I have loved her Chilean adventures but missed her so much here. Happy to have her back. She's sent me some of those delish chocolate things, too (I think she says she gets them in Argentina?) and they are SO GOOD!

  2. And a free Degas ballerina too - how wonderful!

  3. What a great gift to receive! Those earrings are lovely and the scarf will look great with your winter coat. So very pretty! Enjoy. LYS

  4. How wonderful! I knew you won the giveaway prize of the earrings and they are so beautiful! Congrats again. XX

  5. Always good to receive parcels, and so well put together even more so.
