Pahk Yah Cah in Hahvahd Yahd

***click on the pics to enlarge***
Okay, here are all the things my wonderful Pal Devon sent me. "For the love of Halloween"... She made the adorable candy corn bag which was stuffed with witchy themed magnets and circ point protectors. Devon is such a crafty gal. I love her so much for taking all the time she did to put together this phenomenal package for me. And come on!!!! Halloween colors with yarn???? I love, love, love this girl!
Next up is Coffee, Tea (Boston Tea Party Tea!) Dark Chocolate and a Boston themed mug & shot glass.
Devon also created a Passport to 'fitting in' in Boston. There is a little booklet filled with all the do's and don'ts and must sees - Faneuil Hall, Cheers Bar, Hahvahd (Harvard) just to name a few...and of course she included some LYS!!! Also recommended is saying things like, 'You Guys' and inserting "Wicked" often into conversations. "That was a wicked cool play". It is so cleverly written and fun to read. I adore her sense of humor & wit. Devon put together a photo album w/shots of her city as well. She really put so much thought and energy into this and I am so lucky to have her as a friend! Included w/the photos are little comments and facts about the city and local sights. And, just in case her photo album and booklet weren't enough, she included a pocket map of Boston that accordions out, then folds up nice and compact.
Kitschy lobster gumballs, gummy candy, Boston skyline notepad and bookmark...Super cool/wicked handmade knitting bag!!! Devon also sent a book of card games/tricks, deck of cards and Boston Red Sox pencil for my son.
I have said it before and I'll say it again. Knitters are the BEST people!
Devon.....Thank You!
You are a "Wicked" cool chick and I am so glad I got to know you. When I visit Boston again we are having a blogger meet up. I look forward to drinking Beehs at Cheehs and of course knitting with you.
Your thoughtfulness and creativity is overwhelming. Thank you for being such a wonderful pal!!!
It's probably a good thing you live on the other side of the state, because I would hug you to death for your sweetness!
I had a wonderful "vacation" to Boston and hope to visit again soon.
Thank you

Susan, I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation! I had a great time putting it together for you and sharing my city with you!!! I do hope I will get to see something Halloween inspired with that yarn *wink, wink*. You are also one WICKED gal who I am so glad I had the privilege to get to know and spoil. I do hope we will stay in touch and also that we make sure to insert the 'wicked' often as well as dropping our 'R's'. LOL Enjoy!!!!!
