mail mystery

It all began January 25th, when I featured this lovely brooch in a Wednesday Whale Love:


Then, on February 8th, I received a mysterious package in the mail. I opened it to find the brooch!

I tore into that envelope like it was the last Christmas earth would ever see. I had to pick the shreds off the floor and arrange them for this picture.

Looks even better in real life!

But who sent it?!

I wracked my brain, sent out a mass text, and spammed Facebook.

My first thought was that Pepper Spouts had sent it to me. Because they technically DID ship it to me, and there was no shipping receipt or note inside, this seemed like the most logical explanation. I then realized that made no sense because they don’t have my address! And why would they send me anything?

My next thought was that I had accidentally ordered it. I panicked. How could I have ordered something just by copying a link? Did my computer just KNOW my credit card number? Was plugging it in to every site I visit? How many more mystery packages would show up at my house?!

I realized this was probably impossible.

And lucky for my over-active imagination, Facebook let me know that my friend Danielle had sent it to me as a birthday gift.

Thanks again, Danielle!

Mystery solved.

    I’m glad you didn’t buy it and forget. I had a similar scare with a magazine that showed up. And then I remembered that I had entered a contest and accidentally left the box checked for the subscription without realizing it. Then I had to cancel and it was a big hassle. That had happened like 2 months previous to the magazine arriving so I was confused until I looked it up and then I remembered. They had just sent me the first issue for some reason anyway, after I canceled. Long story.
