A Package

I finally won a blog giveaway a couple of weeks ago, and my package arrived today. A big thank you to Tilly for the wonderful gifts! It's kind of strange to get a package from someone you've never met before simply because they drew your name, but I do know her a little through reading her blog. She has such a fun vibrant personality and two adorable sweeties that keep her busy.

Also included was a lovely handwritten card which I somehow forgot to include in the photo.

With the exception of a chocolate for myself and one I shared with the Engineer, I did not touch my gifts until this evening, when I could savour them in the peace and quiet. The tea reminds me a little of apple cider (delicious!) and Lindor chocolates are my favorite. I love their smooth creamy texture. Oh, and the magazines -- after pouring over them, my creative side is just itching to get to work. well,maybe not tonight!Instead, I think I'm going to pour myself another cup of tea and pour over my magazines some more.

I think I might have to have a blog giveaway sometime in the new year. It seems like a fun thing to do. I know I thoroughly enjoyed being on the receiving end.

    I participated once when my blog was new earlier this year. It was a lot of fun. I won one of the giveaways back in Oct. (Latin curriculum).

    I wanted to have a giveaway this last time and just couldn't get myself in gear in time. Maybe in January..........
