Okay. First of all, Ellen, you did research me well. Everything was something I absolutely loved. First, Ellen's theme was Sherry's kitchen colors" (which is absolutely correct)
First was a neat little bread slasher so you can slash your dough before baking. There was also the absolutely perfect cookbook, "For Weekend Cooks." Those who know that on weekends I prepare the week's meals for my in-laws would know how perfect this is for me. The placemats are gorgeous yellow and red, and the fruit is a little red cherry. Coming from the State that is the cherry capital of the US, you can appreciate how much I adore anything with cherries. They and lemons are the perfect fruit in my eyes. (I mean in my eye, lol) Then came a cute little bottle of sherry vinegar (named after me, of course) and a bottle of raspberry chipotle grilling sauce. Yummy! The two little kitchen towels have a little rooster on them, which Ellen bought because they go with my pantry door, which has a handpainted rooster on it. There was also two precious little red bakers with scalloped edges, gorgeous! And 4 red mini bowls (I love mini bowls). Then a red handle serving fork and spoon, some spice labels for my spice mess, and some adorable labels for my canning goodies. She also sent an L.A. Times and a local real estate mag, and Dexter was the recipient of some pretty cool jerky! This was an absolutely wonderful, special, very appropriate and much appreciated swap box Ellen. I can't thank you enough!

Gee Sherry, with all that great new stuff you need to get rid of some things to make room. I would be happy to volunteer and rid you of some of your old stuff. Especially that piece of pottery next to your cooktop if I remember it's placement correctly.

Ellen, yer gives as good as yer gets!

I can picture lovely little flans in those custard bowls; creme brulee anyone? Or in my house, the perfect size for condiments. I love the reds and yellows too. I haven't seen your kitchen, Sherry, but from the way it sounds, these placemats and other items are perfect.

I love the spice labels too.

Sherry, enjoy all of it!

Usually when someone sees red it doesn't mean they LOVE IT! But, this time seeing red means just that! Such a nice box to a wonderful person!

Great job

Outstanding job, Ellen! Too bad you only live like five miles from me... you'll never be my swap partner. :( Of course, you always do give little gifties...

But Sherry, what a wonderful package! Love everything, but then again those little ramekins are special (I got a set of yellow!). Very, very nice. Enjoy it!

Wow, I love those placemats and the fluted bakers. Those will be handy for Sherry, I'll bet.

The canning labels are such a good idea too, Sherry will have to have them for everything she's going to learn to can!

Our swap has such nice bright colors this time around, it must be the time of year.

I agree Annie, bright colors abound, this time around.

Sherry, I'm intrigued by the raspberry/chipotle sauce. Sounds delicious to me. And of course, I love Red, so those cute little ramekins are sheer delight in my eyes. Ellen, the real estate magazine is a very cool touch. You rawk!

Okay you two, no fair!! Ellen, great package you put together for Sherry. I love it all and I've always thought a splash of red anywhere is a good thing! Perfect for Sherry's kitchen, roosters and all! Wait, I can see it all live a week from now!
