I was next on our swap circuit! True to Craftyrn's post, the man in the brown shorts paid us a visit today.

I just don't know where to begin-lol. Craftyrn is a great snoop and a wonderful shopper. She did 4 categories;

Pauline's Red Hot Summer Kitchen (does that mean I'm a red hot mama?). Here's a picture of that group:

There was some local red wine, a fabulous cutting board, a kitchen timer, cute kitcheney hooks and a veggie peeler, all in the red theme.

Next was Cooling it Down with Green:

That consisted of a cold pasta cookbook and a really great & RUSTIC(!) olive & oil set.

Then came Cool Blue Evenings:

Some great French seafood spreads, a bottle of local blueberry wine (yum!) and some 4th stirrers.

Last, but not least, was Packing, a handy tote that keeps hot or cold.

Thank you very much, D. for the thought & care you put into my swap package, we will enjoy using (and drinking, oh yea!) everything & think of you when we do ~ please keep an eye for my email!

BTW, I got such a laugh from your card - I can relate (sadly).

Wow, what a great package! I bought a bottle of blueberry wine in Maine several years ago, my mother the wino...er..expert said it was excellent.

I love the "color" theme, too, and the cold pasta cookbook. Perfect for hot summer weather.

What a nice package! I could have used that pocket timer this weekend. I was boiling some potatoes, thought "hmmm, they need just another minute" and went out to the garden. It was five minutes before i had a "yikes" moment and ran back in to rescue them before they turned to mush.

Every item is so thoughtful! Yay Crafty and Lucky Paulines.

 o
RE: WANTED: A Huge Thank you to our Craftyrn !!!

Very nice package, and the theme helped me edit the package I am about to send.

I have one of those pocket timers, but mine has a magnet that attaches it to the fridge. I might consider taking it with me when I want to time a parking meter.

Can you tell us more about the Wild Salmon Salad?

Lars


 o
RE: WANTED: A Huge Thank you to our Craftyrn !!!

Great package! Nice theme. I'll also be interested in hearing about the wild salmon salad, and the blueberry wine too!

Great job, Crafty! Enjoy Pauline!

RE: WANTED: A Huge Thank you to our Craftyrn !!!

monique, the card is by Country Characters. It has a picture of an olderish woman in exercise attire standing in front of a mirror. Her chest is hanging quite low (well, everything is as a matter of fact)~ the caption is, "Help! They've fallen and they can't get UP!" lolol

Lars & May, I haven't had the opportunity to try the salmon salad yet, but the ingredients are listed as follows;

potatoes, salmon, carrots, flagolets, red & green peppers, celery, sunflower oil, mustard, salt, vinegar, dill, garlic, white pepper & paprika - yum, what's not to love?

We just returned from a couple days down at Provincetown, Cape Cod. DH is on vacation the rest of the week, so I'm planning on cracking open the blueberry wine soon.

D, it was a pleasure speaking to you yesterday morning, thanks again (and sorry things were so hectic here)!

Diane, you are a wonderful swap partner. I think of you everytime I use the insulated carrier (and I use it alot) you sent me in a previous swap!

Pauline, you Red Hot Momma, enjoy your goodies. I bet that blueberry wine is good.
