WANTED: Miles from 'Mile High' Arrived!!!
Colo-Lady (Marcia) is the best!!! Not only can she compose a clever "swap poem" she can put together an awesome swap package! Marcia, I feel as if "you know me"!
The exterior shipping box had "fall leaves" that were glued to the package - sorry, no photos as my cat destroyed them prior to me being able to open the package!
The gifts were wrapped in the "fall theme" - raffia and leaves
Marcia sent a letter detailing the swap themes:
Cookbook - Dorie Greenspan's "Baking, From My Home To Yours". This is one cookbook I do not own! I will be baking (and posting recipes) this week - a fantastic cookbook! The chapters: Breakfast Sweets, Cakes, Pies and Tarts, Cookies and Spoon Desserts. I LOVE Dorie!
Regional - "Firenze" marmalade (figs, almonds and rosemary) - Yum!!! Marcia suggests pairing this with chicken and/or pork or cheese. It sounds delightful! Another item - "Spice Boys of the Rockies" spiece blend to mix with EVOO as a bread dip. (These treats will not last a week in my house!!)
Handmade - A lovely bowl from the Artisan Center - OMG! BEAUTIFUL!!!
My partner "bent the rules" and sent a gift to my kitty, "B"....a handcrafed birds' nest! (You have a wonderful sense of humor!!)
Marcia, you made my first swap so special! I love everything and "B" sends "purrs and kneads" to your kids!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
