hey, ho, and another one bites the dust!


Home is Where The Heart Is...Texas

This one has been sent off to Berlin Germany to Mrs! Sana whose theme was "Home is where the heart is."

 
Camera Roll-38

Four packages mailed today....all international....to the tune of $46.90.  I hate to do it, but I might have to rethink this swapping thing.

And an odd fact for you....did you know that "bites the dust" is a phrase that has it's origins in ancient Greece?  Homer started it.  Just thought you'd want to know.

I know what you mean on the post costing. I spent £41 on Monday. That's one of the reasons I am cutting back on swaps and only doing hand picked ones. ;-)

Ah yes! The cost of postage overseas! I once spent more than $30 posting books to someone in USA as a prize in a giveaway; she could have bought all three for less than I paid in postage! And, to make it worse, the package arrived -- without the books!

That was me :( and I still went out to buy them. Still sorry about that! Hopefully this one gets here.

Hey Cindy, he block is awesome. Very ironically Lynne is talking about the books I asked her to send me to Austin, TX cause I was there at the time. Hubby and I checked the mailbox every day! I was so bumbed out to find the torn open envelope, but no books. I will have lots of the bee blocks ready to mail soon, but I am a bit scared of sending them all at once cause of the shipping cost.

Fabulous! She will love it

This is a fab block, the cost is a shame, but I'm really enjoying this bee

Another wonderful block! It's a shame postage is getting so expensive. It's putting me off joining more swaps too :)
