The package in the mail is awesome.........

I was invited to participate in a Trinket Trade by the lovely Faerwillow. I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the package because I wasn't sure what would be included in the treasures....well they were all fabulous. This is the best idea yet. My "stuff" to someone else who may view it as treasure....I know I sure did when I picked out a black stone carved with the word believe and a dainty pair of square garnet earrings. I would love to tell you what I put in but then I would be spoiling the surprise for the next person on the travel schedule.

Seriously....this is too much fun. The cost is minimal one small box to ship, "trinkets" to share. If you're like me you've got trinkets a plenty. I may consider copy catting this fabulous idea. And the surprise booklet to put a page in was fun. I haven't played with collage/scraping in a long time so it was a kick.

All packed up and ready to go on to the next lucky lady. I'll be heading to the PO tomorrow with GK. Joe has the day off and is gonna spend some time with Ry so that leaves me with some end of the summer girl time with Ms. Thang.

I also have a package to send to Heather at Girlichef. I am sending her some ingredients for a dish I hope she will try and then put on her blog to share. http://girlichef.blogspot.com/2010/08/enchiladas-for-breakfast.html  I happened upon this cutie pies blog and have stayed to try so many of her recipes. She not only has good taste in food but men as well. Her Mexi is a good looking guy and then there is Robert Rodriguez cooking breakfast burritos, migas and then the Puerco pibil from Once Upon a Time in Mexico (he doesn't even have to speak and I am drooling and it ain't the food ladies). Sweet Man is ever so grateful for the recipes not the man thing although let's not count that out completely......, not that I am a bad cook, I am a lazy cook. After 30 something years of making the same thing (favorites) I had closed my mind to new things and then.................I found blogging sites for recipes and made friends with some kick ass cooks, chefs and other folks who love making, serving and talking food. And Heather and Mary of Deep South Dish http://www.deepsouthdish.com/2010/08/giveaway-new-zatarains-products-spice.html have spiced up my life in a big way.

so while your passing the dog days of summer, take a cruise over to these two ladies sites. Heather is on vacation and Mexi is cooking for her....ooh name calling comes to mind and Mary is having a giveaway with Zatarains products. Both are really worth a visit.

Thanks for the get wells, healing thoughts and just plain being the lovelies you are.
