WANTED: Goldgirl's golden--that's for sure!
Hey! That box wasn't a BDay present for DD, it was my swap package!
Goldgirl's box arrived during DD's birthday present arrivals, and no one knew about the current swap, so it was set aside for the big day. I was focusing so much on getting my handmade item done, I hadn't even thought of getting a package!
Goldgirl has definitely done her reading on me, citing both my love of baking and my love of chocolate in her darling card. It features a golden retriever puppy peeking out of a pumpkin. Here's my package of golden delights:
Cookbook: Betty Crocker's Cooky Book. This is a re-release of the original 1963 edition. It is her most used baking cookbook and I will definitely treasure (and use!) mine. Sue even pointed out her favorites, so those will be the first on my list to make. We hardly ever buy cookies--homemade are just so much better!
Handmade: A beautiful wooden mixing paddle from Jonathan's Wild Cherry Spoons. It really is a piece of art, and feels so wonderful in my hand. I'll have to threaten the kids with death if they put it in the dishwasher!
Local Flavor:A Pumpkin Spice Blend coffee from Buck's County Coffee Company. Sue used to live there before her move to New Jersey. It smells heavenly, and I plan to brew some up to have with some freshly baked cookies!
Thank you for such a beautiful fall package, Sue! Yesterday's high was 83 degrees, and it felt about the same today. But now I'll be ready for when fall really hits here!
