Funny thing, I checked the DC# DQH sent me and it said it wasn't a valid #. Then while browsing I hit the back button which somehow brought me to an updated DC# message saying it was delivered. I think that confusion and a little sleepiness had a part later. When I opened my package I was breifly jealous until I realised it was mine.

DQH sent me a lovely roll of nonpapertowels. I have been wanting a flannel set and these are a lovely brown. My favorite color, all the good things are brown. Coffee, tea, chocolate, rich soil for gardening. These will be nice, I had been using thin cotton cloths, but they always get lost or need ironed. These are thicker and I can just roll them up when they come out of the wash.

She also sent four sandwhich wraps. More lovely browns and a fun dessert one. These will be great for packing lunches for work or since she sent four; nice for a picnic with the kids. One for each of us.

Lastly, she sent peach preserves. Perfect for making those sandwhiches.


Thank you. PM's will be sent shortly.

Ysmien, I'm thrilled you liked everything.  Even more exciting, it arrived and everything wasn't covered in peach preserves.   Wink

It would be one tasty, finger-lickin' package if it was though Smiley

So close to finishing I can taste it!  Oh, wait, that was just me biting my tongue Tongue  Ow... Cheesy

I noticed you wrapped it in a baggie to protect everything. I am glad it made it here with the seal intact. I look forward to tasting it.

I used one of the sandwich wraps last night. It held two sandwiches easily, one also would have been fine. The peanut butter wiped off easily. I need to go through your box. i keep adding things in. A book here or there.

It's such fun to see all the crafty frugal goodies. I love that brown scarf, looks very warm and cozy. And the garden organizer, what a clever thing, makes me wish I had more of a garden!

IdlersDesign sent to me the day before yesterday, so impatient optimistic me is now pasted at the kitchen table overlooking the mailboxes up the road, ready to race up there as soon as the yellow postcar pulls up!
