Global warming? If only it were so. *Sigh*
Fortunately I had a lovely pick-me-up waiting in my mailbox this Saturday, a delicious package marked "Royal Mail" all the way from beautiful England. Isn't a package in the mail just the most delightful day brightener? This one is from my dear friend Barbara at Cornish Cream. I won a giveaway of the most beautiful things. It came all wrapped in tissue and ribbons so it was fun to unwrap each item and see what was inside.
See the beautiful fabrics she sent over there on the right? I plan to incorporate them into a quilt and each time I use it I will see those and remember that she sent them from so far away. I have had fabric gifts from friends before and it is almost uncanny how I can remember which patterns came from each person. It's a sweet way to remember someone with an item that is used and loved.
There were also some garden seeds, which I cannot wait to plant! some Earl Grey tea, of a different kind than I have ever tried, (I have water heating now to have a cup), some beautiful Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady notecards, British Red Cross coasters, and the loveliest linen tea towel. I can't wait to feature it in the newly redone kitchen (soon!).crabapple jelly recipe with me this fall. It was fabulous and much appreciated by the friends who received it with fresh home made bread for Christmas. I hope you'll stop by and say hello to this sweet blogger. She made my day!
