Twas The Night Before Linky Party (A Gift Exchange)

Twas the night before Linky Party
And all through the Blog
Feral Turtle was typing
strung out on egg nog

Dreaming of packages
Tied up with strings
Turtle drank spirits 
Spying wonderful things.

When what to my rum laden eyes should appear
But a beautiful post card
with musical cheer.
With letters of joy and a shiny red D
A wish bone of plenty to wipe up spilt tea  (liquor)

Now cards and tags and a beautiful bag
On birds with cones that don't even sag
To the top of the tree with a bottle of rum
A new friend on the blogs has already begun!

Thanks to Kimberley for all of my beautiful new treasures
 and thanks to Vicky for all of her hard work!

 You can read all about Kimberley:

P.S.  No booze was consumed in the making of this post...I swear, not a drop!
