Caught in the act / Goodies galore!

Woo! Just received in the mail what may well be The Coolest Thing Ever:
The Laundry Fairy ValentineApparently I am a blonde. (This is not the first time such a thing has been suggested, by the way.) Thank you, Gretel; I am framing this one.

Also, I was visiting Tara over the weekend and she proceeded to bestow upon me a sack of princely goodies:
The Big Bag of Chocolatey Valentine Goodness These are, clockwise from left to right: hot chocolate mix, pirate bandages (arr!), a card and chocolate-themed stickers, an advance reading copy of the first book in a series Tara is illustrating (plug, plug), and some handmade cookie-cutter soaps.

She shouldn't be giving me goodies; it was her birthday! Not that I'm complaining or anything.

Very, very happy to have stumbled upon the SOSF. I feel very blessed indeed to get to know such wonderful and creative people. Thanks.

Actually it is even better than a card. It's an almost-A4-sized painting! I am SO framing this thing.

Hey, I didn't know it was Tara's birthday!

Sooz, I had to make 'you' blonde as brown would not have fit into the colour scheme, I was going to give you a nice dark brown mop, because I do think of you as being dark haired, but it would have killed the rest. Artistic licence. ;)

Actually, I have no problem with being portrayed as a blonde, for artistic or other reasons. I love this! Just found it amusing because, back in my BBS days, a number of people hazarded a guess that I was blonde based solely on my posts.

thats a great card. Could be fun, doing a post or picture or something based on other blogger's perceptions of one!
