Congratulations on your 80th year!
And a reminder that Half the Sky will air on PBS on Monday and Tuesday of this coming week.
|~I opened my envelope to find a delightful assortment of small, wrapped packages, containing things like tea and seeds from Nausika's garden and a wonderful letter written especially for me~|
|~ dried flowers and porcelain labels (made by her) and a bit of special white wool~|
|~ a small notebook and sticky notes~|
Next, I made exchanges with Vibeke (who is also the brainchild behind these swaps), in Norway. We agreed to an "open" swap - we exchanged whatever we wanted to. I sent things very similar to what I sent to Nausika, but also included some yarn dyed by my friend Renee from Spun Right Round. I know from Vibeke's blog that she too, is a knitter. Here are my goodies from her!
~traditional Norwegian candy and a beautiful bird kitchen towel~
~a wonderful letter with kind words and a package of organic Norwegian herbs that she is fond of~
|~Sync, from Anyela's Vineyards; Dry Riesling, from Knapp Winery;|
Seedless Concord Grape Juice, from Heron Hill Winery~
|A burst of fresh summer flavor!|
