THE FLOWER MISSION

Recommended Posts

Email Sent: 28 April 2009

Name Received: 6 May 2009

Mission Sent: 13 May 2009

Mission Received: 18 May 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

I am a little late posting this, but a BIG thank you to Mrs. usyoopers for my flower mission! The thought put into this mission is evident by all of the goodies AND my coin: a Northern Right Whale from my seeking list!!! I also got a very cool egyption coin that I am completely unfamiliar with and so was a nice surprise to see. (Mrs. usyoopers, any information about this coin?!)

 

Definitely above and beyond my expectations, but to receive this was a great start to my week. Thanks to my sender AND to the mission organizers!

:anibad: I'm glad to hear you liked the package! The egyptian coin is called the "Egyptian Shabti's" it was made in brown, blue and gray (I believe).

Email sent: yes

Name received: Received 5/6

Mission sent: Sent it today. It was going international so I sent it priority mail.

Mission received: Yes from Lunamoth47. She did such a terrific mission for me. There was a garden flag, a magnet with flowers in it,yellow flowers which is my favorite color, stickers, socks, a beautiful card, 2 pathtags and a Spring into caching coin. I didn't have this coin and it is so nice. I like all the colors. Everything is colorful, springy and sure made my day. Oh yeah and flower napkins which I will take when I go to the coast tomorrow. I was supposed to pick some up today and forgot so I am all set now. Thank you Chris, you did great. I am so happy with it.

Received my mission today from the Belfry Potters and got a pair of flowery socks, flower post its a maple bookmark, a carved flower pen, a Canada Micro Puck (really cute) and a beautiful Flower Geocoin (strange as I saw this coin and thought it would be good for the mission, but seeing as I would have to buy two (one for me as I always get myself a coin as well its a sneaky way of collecting them!) I decided to stick with my first choice).

Thank you so much

Picture on the way.

Wow, that was fast, since I only mailed the package eight days ago! It took longer than that for my Turtles to waddle up from Montana, which is just across the Canada-US border from Alberta.

I'm glad everything arrived in good shape and that you like the Flower coin. It's a really lovely coin and I like how they chose flowers that are found all over much of North America. Have a happy Spring!

Yes i know the site and i have met the artist Adi several times.

He has given lectures in Europe and show his slides and movie! Also for non balloon lovers it is interesting to hear his stories.

A quick look at my notes tell me that many of you still need to post your progress here.

 

I have soon got all my things together to send them out, two will go out tomorrow but one will have to wait some more.

 

Please remember to post here and we all like to share your photos.

Today I received two really beautifull coins. An Edelweiss coin and another one which at first I could not understand: what does it mean? After a little research I understood that it is a lovespoon from Wales. Very original indeed. Perry many thanks for these nice coins. I really love them.

I got my flower mission today and I am so excited to share with everyone!!

 

First off, last mission (sunshine) I sent to PV=nRT. So I was very tickled to see a package from the name and address that I recognized. I couldn't wait to open it.

 

Inside, such wonderful and thoughtful items!

A nice daffodil and cat card, with OMG ... a blue on silver Neptunes Compass! Really cute bottlecap magnets, handmade of my very own avatar symbol as well as the GC logo. A beautiful daffodil suncatcher stained glass suncatcher, and sweet words telling her love of daffodils.

Friday, when I came home from work, I found a big parcel in my mail... On the customs form it said "birthday gifts", but my birthday is in October??? Must be the first flower mission, and I hadn't even sent my missions out... But I had the things together so I wrapped the things that evening and brought them to the post office the next day :laughing:

 

Great to hear that Lorcas mission already arrived! It was fun putting it together, before this mission I had no idea how many goodies are available for dogs :D

 

I received two really wonderful mission parcels from The finding Irish 4 and Turlutortue! Each of them found a coin from my wishlist for me! :D;):cool:

I'll try to post pictures tomorrow! Thank you!

A lot of thought was put into it and I got a package of seeds for one of my favorite flowers, snapdragons! I also received gardening gloves (which will really come in handy!), some beautiful postcards, gardening book and a guide to Maine. I also got a nerd coin and a Nero coin - I love both these little guys and I'm excited to add them to my collection :blink: Thanks so much Maine Family!

I spoke to the nice Gentleman at the Post Office and when I said Flower he pulled out the Customs Regulation Book…. :blink:

So you can imagine what the word MISSION would have done to him :unsure:

 

Birthday Gifts made him smile sort-of and only on one side of his mouth but he put the book away stamped the package and said next :D

 

I hope you like the items, and glad we were able to help you cross a coin off of your seeking list.

My first mission and it was a great experience :ph34r::o

 

I spend a while in hospital and when i arrived at home, i found an envelope in my mailbox....

 

....and when i opened it i was speechless: In the envelope was more a kind of artwork than a letter.

 

I never received such a beautiful card before and so i took it in my hands every 5 minutes,because i wasn´t able to stop looking on it :):laughing:

LOL! I'm not the best artist in the world.. but I made it work! So glad you liked it Dark Elf. It was a bit difficult to find the "right" coins for you. I figured everyone can use a compass rose or two! Hope you are feeling better after your hospital stay. ~Chicka

Roses for you, and no thorns!

 

Now isn't that lovely!

 

I'm working with roses, we're propagating them and at the moment, lots of them are in flower...

I can asure you, there are varieties without thorns, but very few! :blink:

 

I'm glad you liked your fist mission, Dark Elf!

Philadephus is Mock Orange. It smells heavenly... like orange blossoms. Back in the olden days (1800's) brides would wear a wreath/crown of it in their hair.

I'd rather not, the smell of Philadelphus is strong, but not to my taste...
