And here are my goodies from quaggy! I'm so excited!!
When I opened the box the smell of peppermint was amazing! ( You're right, quaggy, that see smells ver strong. Luckily, I LOVE peppermint!!) I took everything out of the box that wasn't wrapped and this is what I found:
There's paper placemats with a teapot, cherries and a cupcake, gifties for the kiddies, a little tea set, tea party stickers, a bronze tea pot pin cushion, a grocery list for the fridge, a pot holder.
Then the yummies!
The teas: a fruit sampler, a very yummy looking berry white tea, pepperment tea, organic mint tea. Then there's the Snoopy's Special Pink Hot Chocolate ( I need to guard this from my oldest daughter.. she was very interested in the tin!). There are ice cream suckers, chocolate rasberry sticks and Almond Joy bars which I've never had before and are so yummy!
Next I pulled out a bunch of wrapped goodies. It felt like my birthday!
There was also an envelope with the instructions to open last.
The unwrapping frenzy began and here is what I found:
There are 2 tea wallets with peppermint tea in them ( the cause of the wonderful peppermint smell!
), 2 very pretty tea towels with cross-stitched and applique tea pots on them ( they go very nicely in my kitchen. It'll be even better when we get the walls painted in there. ) , an amazingly cool apron with teacup print. I'll post a better pic of the apron too. There was also a mug with a cozy/caddy on it with pens, nail files, lots of tags, teapot ribbon and a teapot magnet. The mug is fantastic! It has it's own spoon! It couldn't get any better. There's also a steeper teapot which, the funny part is, I was going to buy what I think is the exact same one last summer whe I bought some really nice loose teas.
Here's a better pic of the apron. I tried to get hubby to tak e a pic of me wearing it but today is a grubby day and I'm in my pj's. The pictures just looked horrible. lol Not to mention the apron fits ober my round baby bump but it just looked funny to me.
Thank you for an amazing package, quaggy! The letter you wrote was so very sweet and the story about Grandma's apron is so appropriate.
You have really made this a great swap for me!!
It's nice when someone really thinks about you.
You are an awesome partner !
