Blogging by Mail

Stephanie at Dispensing Happiness recently hosted BBM and soon as I heard about it I knew I had to participate.  The idea is that bloggers the world over exchange packages with each other.  Everyone sent Stephanie our names and addresses and she chose partners for each of us.  No one knew who was sending to them until the package arrived, so it was very exciting!  We had to choose 5 things that are our 'Calgon take me away' items.  In other words, 5 things that de-stress or make you happy or relax you.  I was lucky enough to be the recipient of a package from Astrid at Paulchens FoodBlog and arrived home on Monday night (from a wonderful week in Mexico) to a lovely, thoughtful package of goodies.  
Here is what Astrid put together for me...

The package with the lovely little handwritten greeting card

Homemade herbal tea in a lovely pouch

Tea and pouch

Some very interesting-looking herbs that I will have to ask her more about

Homemade honey!!!

Pancake/egg molds

A lovely tin filled with homemade Christmas cookies!!!

So as you can see, I was very lucky  to have received Astrid as my BBM partner!  What a beautiful package, full of very thoughtful gifts.  I have already eaten some of the cookies (I did share a few ) and both Perry and I have enjoyed some of the lovely herbal tea, which tastes minty and very soothing.  I think we're going to use the molds on Christmas morning to make eggs and/or pancakes.
Thank you very much Astrid!!
