Rollercoaster of Emotions...

It was an up and down kind of day Friday.

I ordered our table linens last Wednesday, and I was expecting them to take 7-14 days, like the confirmation email said. Imagine my surprise and pure joy when I checked the tracking and found out they would be here in 2 days! I was elated. The UPS truck pulled up and dropped something on our porch (I was holding the dog back, so I didn't open the door). I opened the door when he left, and my heart dropped. Look at the condition of the box! I was really nervous to open it, and actually quite surprised it was still intact.

Apparently the corners got roughed up a little in transit.

 Yes, that flap is being held on by three pieces of tape. TAPE!

 Then I opened it up to see these beauties:
Turquoise, Moss (which isn't photographing well), and, well... "Sage" green. And when I say "sage" I mean pretty much bright lime green.

I went from joy that our linens were here, to trepidation about the condition they would be in, to excitement of two of the three colors, to pure befuddlement (a new word I'm coining) about the sage-lime color. All in about the course of 5 minutes.

 I really don't want to go through the hassle of sending the lime green back and ordering a new color, so I'm hoping the color will grow on me. I do like it with the turquoise, and it definitely adds a brightness to our color palette, so maybe it will be ok, right? I sure hope so.
