Thank you Secret Santa 2. I got a fantastic Secret Santa package today. It included a sweet handwritten card instructing me to carefully check all packages and wrapping paper. I suspect the person sending me the package has pets as my cat Jackson went nuts when I started opening the boxes. Either that or he smelled his catnip infused cat toy that was in it's own gift sack.

I got Paris storage boxes.
Harrods ink pens. - I love this place!
Tea Forte - Warming Joy festive tea
Santa's White Christmas coffee
Candle tray with candle holders and an elephant
Gudrun chocolates - so yummy!

Jax got a catnip infused toy he is chasing all over the place.

Wrapping paper and gift bags are all over the place, also Secret Santa included a hand written note for Jackson and a few for me. I will definitely be posting under the influence of chocolate tonight!

Need wiki help!

Yikes, I broke the wiki! I tried to update my received present post to link to the wiki, I did it but wiped out Redheads posts. They are there, I am sure I am missing a comma or bracket or something. Anyone out there able to fix it?

Finally fixed it, with some help from someone. Thanks!

IGNORE THE BED SPREAD IN MY SISTER'S GUEST ROOM


Thank you MileageLover!


I mentioned that I had first been a CO flier and I liked things from defunct airlines. So got the CO 70s commercial record, playing cards, pins, CO Micronesia and Hawaii brochures and route map. Also got a Concorde passport holder and a really awesome Concorde stationary/writing kit with a nice folio...would have been perfect to use the grey leather folio compare to the manila envelope I had with me the past 3 weeks in South Africa!
Also a lot of old CO postcards which works nicely as I do some work with vintage postcards of places I have been with my own photography.

Mystery solved, thanks so much! The beer is awesome, I brewed a chocolate stout before, a chocolate peanut butter porter is great.



And I'll take an envoy seat anytime!

Boxes from SS#2 included a marble cheese board, wine aerator, a garlic roaster (my husband helped me open it and said "I think its an ashtray" ... LOL) and all sorts of tea goodies - a teapot, insulated teacups, and boxes of tea.

THANK YOU to both of my Secret Santas. It had been a rough week away (caring for my Father in law who just had a quadruple bypass) and being welcomed home by your gifts was extra special.

Smile SECRET is the keyword

My Santa has not revealed her/himself. Do know I received the package and will post a picture when I open it. Yep, we wait until xmas in this house!

I just fedexed the last package to my Santee. I will PM to the boss Santa with info soon.

Chief Santa wants to publicly thank an anonymous elf that sent a gift from Harry and David. I am guessing it is a foreign elf due to the spelling of "organising" on the gift card.

While I do not eat chocolate or seafood, Mauricio quickly laid claim to the chocolate covered potato chips and salmon. He thanks you! :-)

We are about to host about 40 people at our first party since moving to Georgia. We are going to serve several of the other items in the box to the guests.

Thanks again for your generosity!

I received a box full of goodies fromhdawg! Two great bilingual books for my daughter. We've read them at least ten times each in two days. So they are a big hit!

There is a fun scratch and sniff book on wine, a lovely bottle of wine, some honey sticks and a Dr Who DVD.

Thank You! Love them all ��

I received a package at my home on Wednesday from my Secret Santa.

I came home today so opened today.

The package contains a handwritten card, a sprint HTC evo 4 phone and industry magazine.

Thank you very much.

HO HO HO! It is time to sign up for 2014 FT Secret Santa!

Overwhelmed by the wonderful gifts received from Kayla including the beautiful card.
Received Opi nail polish, face masks, special key ring, biscuits, chocolates and Burts Bees gift pack. Love everything and appreciated as I can see how much shipping cost you. I'm guessing you sent me the funny questions emails too!

Also a thanks to a Santa that sent me a CD from Irish supergroup The Saw Doctors. It came alone so not sure if you were one of the other Santas that sent me gifts too. Perfect gift for someone that works in the music biz!

I had the honor of meeting up with Santa Kipper and Mr Kipper for a delivery. We met at a local microbrewery, shared a few brews, like a smoky bacon ale and also some war stories. I was honored to receive a 12 pack of beer, a Starbucks gift card, a reloading manual, and a very nice card. Picture to follow in an edit.

Thanks Kipper and Mr Kipper!!!



The Ranger IPA is awesome!

You're welcome! Mr. Kipper highly recommends the reloading manual, especially for what you shoot.

I'm enjoying a Ranger IPA, and I hope you enjoy yours (and the other New Belgium Brewing brews). We ventured a bit south to find that, since it's not available in PA, so now I feel like a beer mule!

The kibblers thank you for your present, and I loved seeing photos of your two!
