I think in the traditional secret Santa exchange the giver remains a mystery. You can do that, if you wish to remain anonymous but I prefer to reveal who it was from when it arrives. It's your choice.

I normally don't open presents until Christmas day but due to the wonderful efforts of NZ Post my gift from afar arrived this morning during a summer shower. The post put the box inside our gate with a protective bag OVER it, and surprise surprise, the box got wet. Not knowing what was inside I opened the box to get rid of the soggy cardboard to find the most amazing gift from flordian.
Perfect fit and an amazing gift - can't thank you enough flordian.

He certainly is. He does admit to a little help from his lovely wife (when I finally opened the card and read it), but still AMAZING.

WOW. Handmade greatness.

Belkwinith did an outstanding job on a personalized mosaic GTS! I love the texture created by the different shapes and sizes of stones, glass, and shiny bits.

I picked up my package today and I gasped and cheered and jumped up and down when I saw the shipper information. (The dude in line behind me in line looked at me funny. I just said, "secret Santa." He sort of chuckled.)


Oh my GOODNESS Trepp THANK YOU!!!! I have been wanting saddlebags for so long, and these are packable and reflective and are just awesome.

Also I am going to make myself more fat and put some weight on like everyone I know.

Secret Santa arrives...
This morning Santa's delivery elf popped in with a parcel... Woohoo!!

All the way from the Mile High City of Denver to the antipodes, big thank you to Rae. The wine additive will have to wait until winter, for us Christmas is mid-summer, and the decoration will be hung out of the reach of the cat! The sticker and patch are really great.

Many thanks, Santa!
