I received my package of Awesomeness from Ms Indigo-roses on Friday but I only had a minute to look at it before I had to rush out again so I didn't get a chance to really *dig* into it until today. My oh My what a great package!!!
Thank you so much Indigo-Roses! I love everything and I'm simply amazed at the crochet! Especially the star!
Oh, wait - the rest of you don't have a clue what I'm 'on' about! So.... here we go!
The "works" all wrapped up! (ok, so I peeked and had to restore the wrapping before photographing... but you guys understand, right?)
the works - unwrapped!
#8 local - Indigo-roses lives near Hershey PA - so some yummy dark cocoa (lucky for me!) I love dark chocolate!!!
#20 2 favorite recipes - Pumpkin apple muffins and Sugar Cookies - perfect for the holidays! Can't wait to try them out (my husband expressed the same sentiment about the pumpkin apple muffins!)
#17 - a selection of teas - also a favorite of mine especially on cool afternoons!
#10 - favorite winter drinks - Hot Chocolate (no explanation required, right!?)
#11 Essential - hand sanitizer! Ms Roses works in a daycare facility and finds this an essential - I work with foreclosed/abandoned homes and find it to be an essential too! (for different reasons but...)
#2 Bath and Body Works - pocketbook sized sanitizers in "seasonal" scents! the orchard one took me right back to New England! Mmmmmm!
#6 - (this made me laugh right out loud and Ms Roses will understand when her package arrives!) Fuzzy socks! but not just any fuzzy sock! They are "Shea infused" and have nonslip soles! (and they happen to be in my favorite color too!!!!) I too, get cold feet in the winter time!
#5 - decorating - this amazing crocheted snowflake!! OMG! I'm trying to learn crochet and tatting and, well, I'm such a novice.... this is so beautiful!
#16 paper - this beautiful paper snowflake! I wish my photo showed the detail more clearly - simply beautiful! I'll have to set it someplace high up to keep it safe until I can hang it for the holiday!
Another shot of the crocheted snowflake and then #14 a book by a favorite author! This looks like a fun read and a chuckle! Will help with stress relief!!!
#25 - a cap!!! Isn't this awesome! I don't have a single warm cap! This will be so great for my morning walks with the doggie (who's name is Katie BTW!)! It's so soft and snugly! And it's beautifully made! (Indigo-roses says that crochet is her "best" craft and I can certainly say that she is very very talented!)
last but certainly not least!
#22 - something given in previous holiday - crocheted potholder and dishcloth - these are to nice to use! *sigh* I doubt if I will ever get anything I crochet to look in anyway as fine as this! Ah well, these are beautiful and I will enjoy them!
and the candy corn - for the *brief* moment it survived in my house.... gone! (I love candy corn too and I'm glad you sent only a sample! I can't stop once I start on it!!!)
Such a lovely package! Thank you so much Indigo_roses! I love it all! I loved reading your note and getting to know you!
