@Louise Oh my goodness, such a beautiful array of birthday gifts from you...thank you so much! 💕 They were all wrapped so prettily (I was too anxious to tear into them for a pic...sorry! 🤣) and all choices from my TBR. And Snoopy was happy to deliver your sweet wishes as well. 😊 You are simply the most generous and thoughtful of #LitsyPenPals! Thank you for sending me so many wonderful hours of enjoyment for the days ahead, sweet friend. 😘🤗📚

Louise I‘m so glad you like the package, Robin! It was fun choosing the books for you, and I hope the stories bring you hours of reading pleasure! 💕 1mo
robinb @Louise All three are eagerly anticipated! 😊 Thanks again!! 💕 1mo

Itchyfeetreader Have you been in the Conrad shop?! 1y
JamieArc I just did a screenshot and sent it to my hubby. Hopefully he‘ll see your comment about dropping hints to your hubby and get the idea 😂😂 1y
Mitch @Itchyfeetreader I have been to the Conran shop. A bit of luxury window shopping! @APLitlife 1y
Mitch @JamieArc it‘s so lovely isn‘t it! 🤞🏼 1y
SandyW Cute, but dusting it would not be fun! (Cleaned house yesterday, can you tell?) 1y
Itchyfeetreader @Mitch I have been having medical treatment nearby. My husband took me in the other day and we agreed I would not ask for this lamp if he shut up about the floating lightbulbs he had his eye on! 1y
zezeki @SandyW I was just thinking the same. 😂 1y
Mitch @zeljka when not it use you can close the book! @SandyW 1y
Ddzmini Happy birthday 🎊🎉🎁🎈🎂 📚😋 1y

The July #Fairyloot box contained the exclusive hardcover version of “Grace and Fury”, a signed author card, a postcard, a print and a letter. Other items were a scented candle from #Neverwhere, and a pillow case with a #Legendary quote.

Bought myself an early (very early) non-bookish birthday gift. Can I open it already, although my birthday is not until the 31st?


Edit: Opened it. Needed something to cheer me up.

batsy Your birthday, your rules? 😉 2y
julesG @batsy It's open. I deserved something nice after I literally fell up the tram steps and am now sporting a bloody shin. Yeah! (MS sucks, especially when it's cold and my leg/foot don't cooperate) 2y
batsy You definitely deserve it. Hope you're not too badly hurt :( 2y

LittleWonder Celebrate your birthday month! 😉🎉🎁 2y
ju.ca.no You sure deserve a gift🤗 I‘m with @LittleWonder - celebrate your birthday month😊🎉 also, I hope you‘re alright and your shin doesn‘t hurt too badly! 2y
julesG @batsy Nasty scratch/bruise. It'll heal. I'm good at patching myself up, and I'm sure that all plaster companies are happy that I'm as accident prone as I am. 😁 2y
Sace Happy Birthday! 2y
Cinfhen They are gorgeous 😍🙌🏻and I‘ll echo @LittleWonder 🎉🥂💜 2y
julesG @LittleWonder @ju.ca.no Thank you! 2y
LittleWonder It‘s so lovely!!! Enjoy! 2y
julesG @RestlessFickleBookHoarder (you're a hoarder now?) Thank you. @Cinfhen Thanks. 2y
batsy Ouch! I'm sorry you're hurt though your present is beautiful and I hope it makes you feel much better 😊 2y
julesG @batsy Thank you. I already feel better. 2y
ju.ca.no @julesG pretty!😊 2y
Redwritinghood Of course you should! Wear it and enjoy! 2y
Sace @julesG yup. 2y
4thhouseontheleft Beautiful bracelet! I hope your shin is feeling better. 2y
4thhouseontheleft @RestlessFickleBookHoarder I missed your name change till now, but I just read your blog post explaining the change. I like both, but words do matter! You have to do what feels right to you! 👍👍👍 2y
Sace @4thhouseontheleft thanks. I would have felt like a hypocrite if I had kept using it. 2y
ElishaLovesBooks So pretty! I always like to open presents 🎁 early!!🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
Mdargusch Pretty! Hope you heal quickly! 2y

OK, here are just a few more reasons my #LitsyPenPal @Louise is SO AMAZING: 1. She remembered my birthday; 2. She mailed me a wonderful birthday surprise; 3. It arrived on-time; 4. The gifts were wrapped in beautiful Japanese kimono fabric designs paper; 5. She gave me a lovely bookmark, steampunk cover notebook and a book from my TBR list (plus a sweet birthday card). She. Is. Incredible. Thank you x 10, I ❤️ it all!!!! 😘❤️🎈😊😍👍👏🙌😮👊🎂🎈🎁

Louise So glad you enjoyed the package, @robinb! 😘 2y
robinb @Louise everything is wonderful. I appreciate your thoughtfulness so much. 👏👏👏👏 2y
