I'm excited to see more packages arriving.  I have a feeling my box for Psyche is waiting for her, but she's out of town for the next week.  I hope she doesn't come home to a melted chocolate mess.  Undecided

Me too! (Note: I am still out of town - and possibly just in time to be hit by Hurricane Bill here - but I have some internet access this evening. Smiley)

Oh... and actually, it won't be melted! Either it will be waiting at the post office, or I'm sure my neighbour who is watching my cats will have brought in inside Smiley

I rec'd a wonderful package today from Holistic Knitter!

A Welsh slate coaster with a bird on it.......I LOvE this!!! And I seriously needed the perfect coaster to keep on my side table next to my bed (the paper it's lying on is a Welsh/English language sheet)


Beautiful note cards from photos taken around where she lives (which looks so pretty).  They each have envelopes too, I just forgot to put them in the picture.  I'm going to frame these, I love them too much to send to someone else Smiley


A celtic cross-stitch bookmark of my name and a darling little glass snowglobe that says "Merry Christmas" in Welsh on it.  The dragon inside is the Welsh dragon, but at first I thought it was Barney  Tongue


This is a super Welsh tea-towel with recipes on it, I love it!  Also, some fudge, a hard candy stick and a gorgeous knitted Welsh dragon washcloth.


This is a photo of everything together, including some local newspapers & brochures of the area, a pencil and pencil sharpener, a keyring with the longest Welsh town name on it, a recipe book, a tourist-type guide about Wales, a Welsh Love Spoon magnet and the funniest thing is a bookmark made from recycled sheep poop!!!


Thank you so much Holistic Knitter, this is a wonderful package and almost makes me feel like I've visited Wales!

I received my package from Psyche yesterday.

I bet you can't guess where she's from!  Wink This is what the box looked like when I opened it.



There were a ton of treats: Icewine and Huckleberry teas, Ketchup flavored chips, Canadian chocolate bars, Chocolate Loonies (Canadian $1 coin), Maple candies and a Maple Syrup lollypop.



Canadian flag decals and other Canada stickers, Canadian beer coasters, Canada jigsaw puzzle, Playing cards, and a light up Canadian Flag shot glass!



Maps and magazines from different regional locations.



A menu from Cora's- Psyche favorite breakfast place.



And lastly, the crafted items:  A tree painting inspired by my wists, representing the color changing trees in Canada.  We don't have "real" seasons in Florida.  And a pair of button earrings, also inspired by my wists. They're white and red-the same colors as Canada's flag.



Thanks Psyche!  I can't wait to have a cup of tea, some chocolate and read the magazines and study the maps! Smiley

Also, thanks beadedbyamy! This was a great swap!
