This is the conversation my mom and I had over the phone only an hour ago.  Better yet, this occurred directly after getting back from the platelet donation center for the first time!

Mom: !#@$ DVD player won't work.  Must. Record. Lost.
Me: I see a post office truck outside.  It must have my package.  I have to leave for work in fifteen minutes.  Must. Get. Package.
Mom: LOST!
Me: PACKAGE!
Mom: ANGST!  Can't record Lost!
Me: Oh, here comes the mailman!  He's cute!  AND HE HAS A PACKAGE!!!
Mom: Huh? Package?
Me: *barely waits until the mailman has put the box down before attacking it*
Mom: Package?
Me: Byemom.

So then, I opened my goodies and was SO excited!  razorsharps gonna post pictures, but I must tell you how great it all is!  I got an amazing knitted purse which will be so cute for summer picnics, a tank top (which fits - I tried it on while gushing over my goodies on the phone) with embroidered tea theme, chocolate chip cookies, tea goodness and biscotti.  *I could be forgetting something - I had to run out the door minutes after opening to make it to work*  Now, I must mention that I am not a huge biscotti fan.  It's always so dry, but the cookies were slightly melty so I put them in the fridge and took a biscotti for my drive-to-work snack.  And it's soooo good!  I must go to the local coffee house and buy a biscotti which is not from a chain coffee place or packaged.  I can't wait to eat it with some tea.  Smiley

I got the charms for the stitch markers at Wal Mart.  I'm glad you like everything!

I guess that's why I couldn't find the tea cup charms. My wal-mart doesn't have a craft section since katrina.

Biscotti is really dry because you're supposed to dip it in the coffee/tea.  Then it gets soft and velvety.  Wink

So! I received my amazing package from bronzfrog today. Smiley Lets get right to the pictures (tons of em)

First! I got a hand painted tea for one set.



And some really cute marble magnets. The backing is fabric.



A handmade pillow case w/ pillow



A tray that matches the tea for one set.



A necklace that "looks like it should be floating in a glass of ice tea." Smiley I love it. It's so cute.



A very cute teacup candle. Smiley



And of course, tea... It's so delicious. I've broken into it already and it's delicious. Smiley



My doggie Agro wanted to help take pictures of the swap stuff. Smiley



Also, She wanted me to post a picture of the stuff I sent her.



To explain, it was a cocoa package. I figured that we were heading into summer so she needed a reason to drink cocoa other than it's cold out side. So I made a "spa" kit. I put it all in a hand made purse/bag. I made an eye mask and a little bag to hold some of my favorite teas (She said that she drinks tea as well). I sent her some hand made soap (from Austin, where I live) and spa gloves. I also sent her two different cannisters of cocoa. (Raspberry and this yummie organic kind) A book with tons of hot chocolate recipes and some spa towels I was going to wrap the cocoa cup in (but it didn't work out like that). My favorite is the cocoa cup. It's so delicate and pretty. And I'm usually not even into neutral colors. Looking back, I probably should have embroidered something cocoa related on the towels... hindsight's 20/20 right?

PS: Sorry for the incredibly long post. Smiley I just like to take pictures hehe

I have to echo sammimag- I love all of the green items that you received, foob! I love how everything coordinates! And, I love the hot chocolate/spa theme basket that you sent to bronzfrog. Just a bit jealous...(although I'm sure that the package I get will be just as great!)

Okay! Here are the pictures of the items I received from hardyswanton01:

All together:


Clotted cream, Irish Breakfast Tea, After Eights, French Roast coffee, Coffee body scrub, and a lovely mod-podged box to store my coffee or tea in.  My fiance almost broke into the After Eights before I snapped a pic but I slapped his hand away, lol.


The needle roll (I've wanted one of these forever!) that I immediately put all my needles in.


The very nicely knit tea cozy made with 100% wool, that fits my teapot perfectly! I love the color, it's a dark charcoal grey, one of my most favorite colors. (EDIT: ok well the lighting in my house is obviously very bad, the tea cozy is actually dark brown, which is also a favorite color of mine!)


I love everything!  Thank you again, hardyswanton01!

Okay heres the stuff I sent yarn_tart.


This is just a close up of the embroidery on the tank top. I'm so glad it fits! I hope you find your camera cable because I would love to see an action shot.


These are chocolate cookies made with crushed tea (I used Republic of Teas Vanilla Almond tea, so good.) These are a very special creation of mine to fit the tea theme, they went over so well in our house that I make them every three or four days now to keep on hand (same with the biscotti)


Heres the bag I knitted. It ended up WAAAAY smaller than I thought it would, but it was the first thing I did with cables so I think it turned out okay.


This is the biscotti. I make my biscotti a little less dry and flakey, because I like to eat it as a suppliment to my coffee, not dunked in my coffee. So, its almost like shortbread.

And the really fun thing!



I sent her yarn dyed with tea too! (I also put frozen blueberries and raspberries in with mine to add color.)

I'm glad everything made it there safe. And boy do things ship quick from Ohio to Nevada! I sent on Monday and she recieved today, she sent on Saturday and I recieved on Monday. SUPER QUICK!
