I was eagerly awaiting my Fair Trade Friday December box this year and a little worried when the postal service tracking showed it in transit for several days. On Tuesday afternoon my little box arrived.
Yup, this month it was a box.
No real hints yet, everything was protected by packaging.
This cute dove ornament from India adorns our Christmas tree now.
And these cute gift tags will be used on our presents for family members this year.
So what was in the bubble wrap?
This Nativity from Prodigal Pottery. The Nativity looks very nice on our antique trunk coffee table in the living room.

You know I love my monthly Fair Trade Friday box mailer. This month it was box instead of a package.
Today May 16th is designated as a day of giving. Mercy House Global has teamed up with several organizations who work together to give women a brighter future.
“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.
A pearl is a healed wound. An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl. The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten. We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

I have been a subscriber since day one of the Fair Trade Friday monthly box. I love getting mail that is not all bills but also contains items that make our world a better place. Beyond the monthly box Fair Trade Friday also offers a bracelet of the month club and an earring of the month club.
In February I also purchased the earring of the month for February. I wanted to see what they offered and I was not disappointed!
I think I need to purchase a larger mailbox. Took me a little wiggling to get my Fair Trade Friday package out of my box.
This package felt very solid so I was curious what items I had this month.
Yesterday the mail box held good things. Lately its been full of college information, bills and magazines. This time there was only one college brochure, one magazine and my Fair Trade Friday package.
My first item is a taco cord keeper. This will be so handy when I travel! Between chargers and headphones I usually have some sort of mess brewing in my bag.
What a crazy past few weeks it has been! Hardly enough time between trips to wash clothes and repack. I hate to feel so rushed and pushed. Digging through the mail I found my Fair Trade Friday package for January. That made my day!
What does this package hold?
I need to get a bigger mailbox for my Fair Trade Friday packages. I was not sure what was in this months package but it took a little to get it out of my mailbox.
Time again for my favorite Friday of the month!
This was my package that came in the mail Thursday.
