Not long after Christmas, Margaret from Nanny Goats in Panties asked if anyone would be interested in having a white elephant gift exchange to pass on a gift you had no use for. Now everyone gets something they don't want or need and I was no exception! I was happy to jump on this fun little bandwagon! I just hope the person whose name I had, received her gift in time for today's party!!! It's coming via UP Postal Service and it was mailed at the end of the week! I swear! I just didn't count on the Martin Luther King holiday to mess up the delivery.
The other day as I pulled into my driveway, I saw a box sitting by my front door. I had ordered a few things that were being delivered, but I could not think of what this could be! When I saw it was a UPS package from Canada, I remembered about the gift exchange!!! YAY!!! (then, OH CRAP!! I need to mail mine!)
I was excited to open it up and see what it was! Inside the box was a gift bag with a tag from Nicky at We Work For Cheese !! Their blog is written by several people. I'm guessing this gift came from Nicky, who is a girl. The gift exchange just seems like a girl thing to do! If I'm wrong, my apologies! I wish I had read the labeling on the box more closely because I don't know where in Canada it originated.
Anyway on to my gift.
I ripped open the box and found this gift bag inside.
Oh! There are 4 items inside the bag! All carefully wrapped in paper to keep them from breaking. I take one out and unwrapped and it's a....... hmmmm... what IS this pretty thing?? It's about 4 inches high and about 2 inches in diameter. All 4 items are identical. The painted design is definitely Oriental in nature ( can we say Oriental now?) I'm guessing they're Japanese. Are they sake cups? Little bud vases? Okay, take a look at these and tell me what you think. I think they're sake cups.
Ya know? I've never had sake. I just might have to remedy that!
Thank you, Nicky (or Mike) at We Work For Cheese!!! I love them!!!
