I got my box......!!!!!

Lisa_in_GermanyJune 27, 2011

I got a really nice box from bizzo! I will post pics later. DH has to help me get them uploaded and posted.

I received a really pretty plate in the shape of a flower with blue flowers on it with matching cups! Perfect for outside or summer entertaining.

I also received two local cookbooks. One from Mystic called Saltwater Foodways and the other is Connecticut Farmer and Feast: Harvesting Local Bounty. It is all about the Connecticut farmers markets. I haven't had a chance to read either of them, yet, but I hope to this week.

Thank you so much, Bizzo, for making my swap such a memorable one. I haven't participated in years so it was a nice comback.

My box to my swap partner is on its way. I do hope it won't take the slow boat.

Wow! I'm so glad it got there, and hope nothing got mangled! I had so many grand ideas for you, but shipping overseas I tried to keep it simple and non-breakable and a little lighter weight! yes, I know books aren't light, but they are lighter than pottery or glassware and much sturdier!!

I really hope you like the cookbooks! I bought them both at a bookstore in Mystic and they definitely reflect a bit of the part of the world I live in now...

I was offline for three days so it took me a while to get back to exchanges. The box got there sooner than I expected ! Sorry, Lisa, Or I would've responded last Monday!

I didn't take pictures, but since I'm not sure if Lisa will be able to as it's been several days, I'm going to share a link to the other cookbook as well... I liked the photos and stories in this one, I hope Lisa will, too!

I would say that you nailed it Bizzo.

I'm looking forward to Lisa's pictures. But in the meantime, I'm admiring that cookbook cover. Farmer and Feast - what a great title. If the cover is anything to go by, that must be one amazing cookbook.

Everything on that cookbook cover is so perfect and delicous looking. And Saltwater Seaways sounds fascinating.

It's a lovely selection of America for Lisa. I hope we get to see the plate and cups too.

You can never go wrong with a cookbook and I really like the looks of that one, I'll look forward to seeing some recipes from that.

Great box, Bizzo.

Sorry about the pics. We have been really swamped here with doc appointments and work. Will try to get them up this weekend.
