MAIL CALL!!! Happy little trees....

I almost thought I wasn't going to be able to report this one!  I have been eagerly awaiting this package since winning the auction on the big "E"...which for me means checking the delivery confirmation a few times a day because that will make it get here faster...Yes? (Please say I'm not the only one that does this).  

So anyway, I was excited yesterday when I saw that it was marked delivered!!! Sweet! AND then not so happy when I got home to no package.  WHAT! I grumbled all night, mainly because I had this same thing happen last month with two packages that were delivered on the same day.  I thankfully received those, but only because the people who received them in error were honest and came to the house a week later.  I tried calling the post office but the lady I talked to said their tracking system was down and I would have to call back...which worked for me because she had a SERIOUS case of bitch-itis...she must not have been having a good day.

By now I'm starting to think it might be karma, since when I showed this item to one of my best friends he was like....

"Are you bidding on that tree?"  - J
"Yeah" - Me
"Me too" - J

AWKWARD.....all I could think is Oh shit....should I still bid on it?  But it is so awesome!!! What to do what to do.....then the next part of our conversation put everything in perspective.

"Game on" - J
"Well....I was the first bidder which makes it mine" - Me
"Not how Ebay works sweety" -J

At this point I was cracking up...Game on indeed.  Suck it! I can come and visit my trees but you are getting frisked on the way out.  AND since when I got home today my package was on my doorstep there are actual trees to visit.  

Everybody...the trees
the trees.....Everybody

Happy little trees

They have found a new home!
They now look super fab in my shadowbox...I think they were made to go there!




  1. Your trees are fantastic, and they do look perfect in your shadowbox. Congratulations on winning!

    1. Yeah this was one of those items that I bought and had NO idea where I was going to put it! Problem solved!

  2. Hilarious! I want to tell other bidders to suck it too. Haha

    1. Me too!! ALL THE TIME...especially those last 2 second bidders. It was rather nice to actually say it to one, even if it is my bestie.
