Mail Call!

**I cannot claim creative rights to this, I was the recipient, not the creator**
So last night we got a very odd shaped box in the mail. I did not recognize the return address and I began to be very nervous. I opened it up and it was the coolest surprise I think I have ever seen come fro USPS. It was a baby shower invitation inside a plastic bottle. The bottle also had a little plastic sword, some sand and a shell. I just sat and looked at it for a good ten minutes marveling at the genius quality of the sender (I still had no idea what it was or who it was from). But I was excited that someone thought we were so important to go to all of this trouble.
The bottle had a nifty way to unscrew the bottom and get out the paper. Here is what was inside.
The first paper was the actual invite. This is a couple baby shower for a fun and adorable and unique set of friends. But the third paper was the most creative, sorry the picture is so blurry.
Here is what this paper says: "Ye clues to the "booty" for baby- When searching for booty for baby don't fuss. they be registered for loot at Baies R' Us. In staying true to the pirate theme, the colors are red, black and white (not green!). If crib sheets or blankets be what ye found, Beware...the crib is not rectangular, but round. "Be boy or girl?" ye say. Barnables! We won't know 'til delivery day. Arrgh..."

Is that not the most creative paragraph ever! You can tell how excited about this I am! Have you ever heard of a round crib? Have you ever seen these bottle invites? I will try to do some research and find out where to find them...stay tuned...

I have seen a round crib and also have seen similar bottles at Hobby Lobby.
But the poem is just perfect and I love that they are creating a pirate room for a boy or girl.
Can't wait to see the shower decor. :)
