Pearl said...

Just got back from visiting your swap partner... the package of treasures you sent to her was amazing! Just had to let you know how excited I got when I spotted the teeny~tiny red cocktail monkey! ... ~ laughin' ~ ... as a child, I had quite a collection of those things, courtesy of my Dad... I had the monkeys, cats, birds, elephants, etc. Ohhh, also those plastic swords! I sure do wish I still had that collection... of course, I have no idea what ever happened to them...

Time for bed ... just had to let you know about the monkey excitement... LOL

XOXOXOXO ~ Pearl ♥
