You probably have heard the saying, "It's the little things that count." It's true. This little tin arrived the other day from my friend Cindy Adkins at Whimsical Musings. The tin is little but Cindy's thoughtful gift is big. It brought me what I call sunshine mail. A beautifully decorated Altoids tin which included cinnamon (pink colored) flavored mints. Click here to visit Cindy's post to read about her inspiration for the collage on the tin. I'm not sure if Cindy knows about this but inside the tin the mints are enveloped in a wrapper. Altoid's includes a message on the wrapper or as they refer to it as a Curiously Strong Fact: Altoids were once used to ease everything from stomach ailments to raven attacks. I do have an on-going digestive system problem and the challenge Cindy entered required the piece to include something with wings or about wings. I wonder if Cindy planned that too?
More sunshine mail arrived from another friend, Marcia at The Shop Around The Corner. Click here to visit Marcia and her sweet shop. She just gives away her gorgeous tags. Here are the beautiful flip flops she sent to me. Special little tags that bring me big joy.
The little sticker below didn't come in the mail. I found it stuck fast to my computer desk. It's a sticker from an apple my husband had for a snack. He thought of me and my Pink Saturday Posts. A little thing that means a lot.
Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!

More sunshine mail arriving today just in time to celebrate the Red, White and Blue, Pink Saturday theme. The gorgeous tag and goodies below are from Mercedes at All Things Pretty. Mercedes and I were swap partners for the July monthly tag swap held by Tee at The Altered Paper.
If you do not know all of these awesome ladies I hope to take the time to visit each of them. They are all very talented and they have become wonderful, supportive, fun, friends.
Thank you, Paul, Cindy, Marcia, Tee, Beverly and Mercedes, it means a lot.
