My apologies for being absent from the thread. We've been a bit distracted in this household lately.
My partner, Mod35tBabe, is absolutely fantastic (and extremely patient!). She sent me some fantastic stuff, some tasty goodies and a great apron!
Some tourist-y pamphlets from her home:
She also sent me a miniature flag from Australia! It's found a home in my craft room already.
And the apron:
I like the long length, and the assymetrical pockets. The lace trim is adorable, and it's so colorful!
Here's a close up of the print:
Psychedelic kangaroos from Australia!! Awesome.
Also included were several goodies which, between me and my husband, have mostly disappeared already. lol. There was musk-flavored lifesavers, grapefruit mints (those were fantastic, btw), and a strawberry Starburst lollipop! mmmm, Strawberry.... so delicious!
And, there was a sample of vegemite!
Sorry for the crummy photo.
My living room is very dim, and I couldn't get my phone camera to focus.
So, it looks kind of like tar.
But I actually like it! I took her advice, and tried it spread very thin on some buttered bread and it was a nice, light salty flavor. And when you spread it thin, the yeastiness isnt too strong, and it's pretty tasty! I had heard of vegemite before, so it was cool to try something new.
Thank you, Stefanie!! For your correspondence, the cool stuff you sent and especially for your patience! If you ever want more taffy (or anything else shippable!), drop me a message and we'll work something out.
