A delightful package arrived from a sweet friend this week. We'd planned on meeting "live and in person", but connections and time-lines did not mesh, so my little package was sent via UPS rather than delivered personally. So sad. But the beautiful contents made me smile, as these simple things represent so much. A pretty tin of waffle-cookies with a creamy caramel topping came from here. They can only be described as heavenly! They are being dutifully rationed, but I couldn't resist making a fruit salad for supper tonight, inspired by the colors of these prints and served with the sweet wafers. Fresh raspberries, blueberries, bananas, and pineapple drizzled with honey and topped with banana mint. . .yum!
The pretty windmill ribbon that ties together quilting quarters represents my dear blogging friend, Lucy, who inspires me often with her beautiful hand-made quilts.
And the crisp red, white, and blue grosgrain ribbon represents me and the country that I call home. The ribbons tie two hearts together in friendship from across great distance and more than one time-zone.
Thank you, Lucy! I cherish the gift. . .and am refilling the box to send off to you. Keep watch for the postman to deliver a surprise from my house to yours.
A clue to it's contents? Alright, only one: Sisters. Can you guess?
