Surprises in the mail and new pepper plants!

I was so surprised to recieve a BIG giant package in the mail from Yoon See last week!!! It was full of her artwork, some postcards of places of such beauty in her homeland of Malaysia, and some stamps (first day issue on an envelope and with an informational sheet inside), and a little tiny sketchbook she created...handsewn and with her original artwork on front!!! WOW! All the way from Malaysia too! Thankyou so much, Yoon See! I love it all so much! The stamps are something I will always treasure since I collect world stamps! My collection is mostly of used stamps, but I do also have some specialty stamps (like these that Yoon See sent) that are all grouped together or on a special thing (like this envelope)! One of these days I will show you all my stamp book! I think it is such fun...and my cousin taught me how to work on my stampbook in the dark (a very special talent) DURING HURRICANES!!! LOLOL! You have to wear a headlamp, so both hands are free, and you can see at the same time. I sure hope we don't have one this year, even though I am fully prepared to work on my stamp collection in the dark! Ha ha ha!
Anyway...I can never thank you enough, Yoon See, for all of these treasures...I am looking for the right frame for the biggest artwork right now!!!

Click on images to make large...for more detail.

Here are some of my new pepper plants that I got planted last night after work! I have 1 Thai red chili pepper (I like a LITTLE BIT of heat at times, in my food. Then I got 2 Cubanelle peppers, and 3 Banana peppers. It will be fun to watch them grow and produce. I ended up planting them by my front door so I can keep an eye on them and water and fertilize often! I hope no one passing by decides to steal my peppers!!! My house is set way back, and sort of on a hill...from the maybe they will be safe!

Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!
xoxo- Julie

Those hot peppers look good. I like a little heat in some of my food. These are for those that like it HOT.

You are welcome Julie, I am happy you love them.
I also collect stamps, I will show you in the near future.
I am now working my private project. I need to come out with a business plan. Reading book, so no time to venture into drawings at the moment.
Will catch up with you all again:)
Happy days. I hope I can produce more works to send to you Julie again.
