A Sound You Never Want to Hear...

I have been very anxiously waiting for a special package to be delivered. It was something that I've been searching for years for. I even spent more than I intended, just because I've never seen one in this size and color in real life-not just in someone's pictures.

I was THRILLED when I saw the box sitting on my front porch when I got home from work the other day. Not so thrilled when I picked the box up and I heard a tinkling sound...even less thrilled when I shook it a little to hear an even louder tinkling sound.

I very carefully opened the box and my heart sank! This is what I found...

Sad day! Hope I can find it again!


  1. Hope it was insured. Although you can't replace something so hard to find.

  2. What a shame! I'm surprised the seller didn't wrap each piece individually for better protection. Also, a bigger box with more side protection would have helped. :(

  3. It's just one bowl, but a lot of pieces. I hope I don't have to wait for years and years to find it again! They did give me a full refund-no questions asked when I sent them the picture. Hopefully they will pack things better in the future.

  4. It still amazes me the people who think the mail works like a magic bubble and there is no need to safely and securely wrap items in transit.
