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.

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?
