My box was waiting for me last night when I returned home from Denver - some delicious Ghirardelli Peppermint Hot Cocoa mix (yum!), a bar of chocolate (double yum!!), 2 pair of fuzzy socks (I hid them from the daughter and the dog) and a Barnes and Noble Gift card (gotta love that!). Thanks so much Divia!!

I received my Goodie Swap gift today! Thanks to Leyland I now own two handmade necklaces with glass pendants. Did you make them yourself Leyland?

I'm so glad you like them, diamondlil. They caught my attention in a local shop in tiny Travelers Rest SC being unusually colored and hung on the ribbons that way. I didn't make them, but do wish I had a talent for something like that.

You are very welcome, I liked the hunt for stuff.

It was a bit tricky to find something for a fellow bibliophile -- and I didn't want to go the gift card route. I'm looking forward to what you think of the tea, Harney and Sons is wonderful, and they specialize in top notch teas from India and China, and -so- much better than the supermarket brands.

So I got a package today from Australia, and the little angel in my head said, "Wait until Christmas!" And the little devil in my head said, "Heck, no, open it now because it feels as if there's a BOOK inside!" So Amanda, the devil made me do it! Thanks for the tote bag, the bracelet, the cute card, and the Katherine Swynford bio!
