I received from Mistress Jennie today!!! The notification on my phone that the package had been delivered late morning was taunting me all day at work which was torture but it was sweet gratification when I was able to see all the fantastic things that Jennie cooked up for me
Seriously this was the box that kept on giving hehe.
First I found these delicious smelling ingredients to add to my kitchen. The chive salt is so savory smelling I can't wait to try it the next time we cook! Jennie also sent along some mulling spices which will be fantastic to play around with - I've never made anything mulled before.
Also, she thoughtfully included a Mad-Eye Moody crocheted dish cloth to keep on eye on any magical mischief going on in the kitchen.
The next thing I pulled out of the box was a fun bluebell flame jar, nodding to my love of Hermione. This will be a wonderful addition to brighten up my back patio in the summer evenings
Next, I found out I was one of the lucky receipients of one of Jennie's trademark Owl Post bookmarks! I remember seeing her post before when she first made them, and thought they were the cutest thing ever - and now I own one! This is perfect because I'm trying to get back to reading more physical books and am woefully short on bookmarks. The charms are all so different but marry together so well. Jennie truly is a master of the charms and baubles and pretty things
The next item I found, I squeed at so much! I was secretly hoping I might get one of her fantastic dreamcatchers!!!! And to think that this was a last minute addition. I love it so much and promptly found the perfect place to hang it over my bed. My pictures are woefully inadequate - the yarns sparkle more in the light and there are a great mixture of charms throughout the strands. It's so beautiful and I love it a lot.
And finally, the piece de resistence! A ginormous Molly Weasley blanket! Jennie said she originally was planning on making a lapghan but strangely it grew in size to be much more of a comfortable snuggle blanket. I think Molly would approve. It is such a nice heavy weight and I know it will be fantastic to snuggle under in the winter. I love the colors - they reminded me of Mrs. Weasley's multicolored sweaters immediately.
The only place I could think to try to get pictures of the whole blanket spread out is on my bed which is a queen. This blanket is not small people. Look at it!
Thank you so so so much Jennie for agreeing to swap with me! You are a joy to chat with, and I love all the things you sent to make my house even more Burrow-ific!
