Talking Okay, whoever you are...fess up!!!

I received a gift via USPS. It came directly from the vendor, so it wasn't wrapped. There was no packing slip so I couldn't do any sleuthing there.

The item is a small 128-page craft book entitled pretty little potholders, by Lark Books. I had it on my Amazon wish list for several years, so I'm pretty sure that's where it came from.

I didn't order it and none of my family and friends say they did either, so....is anyone here at DC the little elf who sent me the book? Hummmm?

I love the book and want to thank whomever gave it to me.

Anyone who has either my name or my email address can view my Amazon list. I've already grilled all my family and any friends in the area.

It was not me either, but it is possible you will never know who it was. The person may wish to remain anonymous. It was a very sweet thing to do!

Katie, if no one else admits doing it. I'll take credit for being thoughtful and caring.

Well I don't have your full name, email address, or real address, so I can't take any credit either, but very nice and very thoughtful of whoever did!
