Vintage Vixens

You know, today started out sucking pretty bad. I felt like something a dog had shit out, eaten, then shit out again. My stomach was acting up, I had a headache, plus I didn't sleep that I was already in a cranky mood. Then I forgot my Kindle for class, meaning I couldn't participate in the required Top Hat bullshittery that never works half the time...which means I missed out on the participation points, so I could have just stayed at home since I didn't get a grade for today. Then in class, the teacher rambled on about the same thing we talked about Wednesday, and we never got through more than 1/3rd of a page of new notes due to her little stories, instead of actual teaching.

Needless to say, by the time I got home, I was NOT miss joy and sunshine.

Then I checked the mail, and found a small padded envelope from Dr. Steamington. If you remember, I posted about a previous mystery package that I received, which then sent me into a panic induced anxiety attack because I thought a serial killer was following me and had targeted my house. While that proved to not be the case, I wasn't exactly expecting anything further from the amazing Steampunk artisan.

While an unaccounted for and unexpected package generally sends me into a tizzy of "WHY THE FUCK IS THIS THING HERE?!?!", today, it was just what I needed.

After unwrapping the pretty little box, and carefully parting the tissue paper, I was greeted by the smiling faces of three tiny foxes, set onto an aged bronze filigree. I was in love before I even put it on. Seriously...this woman knows me so well it's fucking stupid, and I've only talked to her long enough to thank her for making the first pendant I got for my birthday.

The generosity and kindness of some people, is truly amazing.

Love and Lightning Bugs,
