À votre santé !

Krista - a/k/a/Frenchmade, was my Tea Swap partner - my very, very generous Tea Swap partner!

This is before I started to rip apart all of those pink packages --

And this is after --

Wow! So many teas - two of my favorite Twinings (including Orange Pekoe and Darjeeling, old favorites), Taj Mahal orange pekoe, Imperial Spice and Rose Congou from
Sharkawi Farm. Honey from Bees ' n Blossoms, locally-produced . Crackers, cookies, Michel Cluizel dark chocolate (from France, of course!), adorable Scrabble stitch markers, 2 skeins of Cestari DK cotton/wool blend in the most lovely roses and periwinkles, and a ballband!

Not to mention a letter from my newest friend, Krista, who tells me that the farm where the yarn is made "has very happy, spoiled sheep" - the best kind!

I love swaps. I love meeting new friends. À votre santé!

Ooh! That's almost enough to make me want to join another swap. I get swap fright; I send things off and then fuss about how it wasn't good enough, so I've sworn them off.

Delightful! Simply Delish!

That looks wonderful! Rose congou teas can be so nice - you'll have to let me know how that one is.

And the yarn looks and sounds yummy - any project in mind for it?

Wow, what a great package! So many new things to try, where are you going to start?

Love the line about spoiled sheep!

Scrabble stitchmarkers? Very nice idea.

Spoiled sheep! Lol. The best kind.

Such a nice swap haul.
