...I've found that home-made honey tends to have hints of flavor that vary depending on what the bees were pollenating at the time.  Growing up, we had some friends whose bees made a wonderful mesquite honey.

I was thinking this, too.  Must have fruit trees nearby.  Anyway, I love peach flavored anything.  So, her bees have good taste.  Wink  It's wonderful.

Actually, they're near our orchard of apples, pears, cherries, apricots and ... peaches!  I've never noticed the fruity flavor, gonna have to go try some.

Oo, that's a lovely package! And how bizarre is this, I'm across the pond, but I also received my package from MissingWillow today!
So this was the whole amazing package! She stalked me really really well!



So the first thing was this pair of beautiful pantaloons for my tribal bellydancing! (Sorry I couldn't get a good photo...maybe I'll try again tomorrow!)


Just look at the pretty fabric!


She also sent me the fabric scraps for me to do something with...


Then there was this lovely choker based on one from my wists..love it!


The dangly pendant, shells and kuchi coins really make it


She also sent me this beautiful lace hip shawl from her own dance closet...


It's edged with velvet and fringing


Then there was a beautiful pair of yarn falls to match the trousers...


A pair of pliers, some wire and gemstones for attempting some wire wrapping projects...


A swirly polymer clay texture sheet because I can't get them over here! (Love swirls!)


Some yarn for my stash...


And last, but by no means least, some handmade soap! Yummy!


Thanks to MissingWillow who hit the nail right on the head with everything she sent me! Okay, you can all start Wisting now!  Wink

Samsara, you were seriously soooo easy to stalk!  I am planning to copy your swap partner info format for my own future swaps.  I got such a good feeling about crafting for someone 'across the pond' whose wist and swap info made me feel like I was on the right track, I'm glad I hit the mark.  I'd love for you to PM me a photo of you in the yarn pigtails some day.  I'm so glad you like what I sent.  Thanks so much for accepting my swap invite!

I love the fabric of those pantaloons!  I can just imagine the dancing outfit that goes with all the goodies. Cheesy
