Texas Acorns...

The first surprise package of acorns arrived from Fort Worth, Texas today. Thanks to Dee Dee of Dee Dee's Craft Spot. I was pretty excited when I saw the package in my mailbox, but can you believe the special envelope I found inside? Dee Dee, I suspect that you crafted this envelope yourself, and I think it's great.

When I opened the envelope, I found these beautiful acorns waiting for me. I'm getting an education with this project. I'm finding that acorns, like people, come in all shapes, sizes and colors. I have never seen acorns in this color and shape before. Another thing...I guess I thought that, coming from Texas, the acorns would be huge. (Isn't the saying that "Everything is bigger in Texas"?) These are small, almost tiny, mahogany-colored acorns. I love 'em! Don't you agree, they are very cool?

My call for acorns is going to be more fun than I ever imagined! I'm excited in anticipation of all the different and equally fabulous acorns that I know are coming my way. I'll be sending out a little package for Dee Dee yet this week. Thanks so much for sharing some of your East Texas acorns with me!

I love that you are getting all these acorn packages! How fun! Sorry I don't have any for you - but if I find some, you can be sure they will be on the way to you.

Isn't Dee Dee the sweetest person... this is exciting... I will certainly be following this post... I can't send them from Canada through customs but I can certainly try to smuggle some over if I can find some for you...LOL

I would love to send you some nice Kiwi acorns but I don't think the US Customs Dept. would be very impressed with me sending them over. Maybe you could have a holiday down under and smuggle some home ;-)
