WANTED: The cutest and bestest 'theme' ever! It's here!

Mae (lowspark) thank you for an absolutely awesome swap package. This has got to be the cutest and bestest theme I have ever seen!
Mae sent a note telling about the Texas Two-Step, a popular country dance. She sent the directions to do the dance. (Duh, like I am the most uncoordinated thing ever) so I will probably just read it and not do it..lol
Then the note continued telling that "Texas Two Step" is the theme. Each of the "4" gifts she sent me have two steps.
Here is Texas Two Step #1 "Sweet and Sweet Hot, That's what we like in Texas." This is lemon fig marmalade and peach/jalapeno preserves.

Here is Texas Two Step #2: ""Heatin' it up, Texas Style" This includes Smoky Chipotle Salsa and Peach Salsa.

Here is Texas Two Step #3 : "Wash it all down with Texas flair" which is a bottle of chardonnay and a bottle of Merlot, both produced in Texas!

Here is Texas Two Step #4: "Last but not least, not made in Texas, but I hope you enjoy these anyway!"

Here is the whole Texas shebang!

Thank you so much Mae. I have a collection of both jams and jellies, and salsas, so both were very, very much appreciated. And I never, and I mean never, turn down wine. Yummy! Think I will open one right now. And, there was a long discussion about wooden bowls, and about how badly I wanted one. You did a really, really great job of researching me, and I am absolutely enthralled with my package!

What beautiful gifts! Mae, you have done it again! Picked just the right thing.

Love the salad bowl and utensils.

Sherry, I was Mae's swap partner last swap - she sends great stuff. She sent me two beautiful bowls and I think of her whenever I use them.

Enjoy!

I'll take it all - and your little dog too - lol.

I have been looking at wooden salad bowls - I love those. Mae, your package is so fabulous and creative.

Sherry,
I'm so glad it all arrived in one piece (I was especially worried about the wine!) and that you like it. I really wanted to send some "Texas" your way plus something I knew you really wanted. I had actually planned to buy something totally different than the wooden bowls, but when I was shopping, well, there they were, calling my name, May... buy me for Sherry! Well, what could I do? I had to buy them!

I really enjoyed shopping for you and I'm so glad you like everything. My package also came today (woohooooo!!) and I'll be posting that info next!

Yes, I'd like a close up of your tile backsplash with your counter top.
I just put in Maui in my kitchen. And in your picture, it almost looks like it could be my counter top. LOL
I have yet to figure out a backsplash..
Hence why I wanna look CLOSER at yours.
Thanks!
