Blogging By Mail is Awesome!

I have been waiting, watching the Happy Sorceress' blog Dispensing Happiness for the event Blogging by Mail to come around again. I had never participated before and it seemed like a fun thing to do. So sure enough I joined in this time and received a fantastic package of goodies from Betsy of Food4Five.
10 wonderful items sent from CA- here they are....
The Bread and Chocolate Cookbook by Fran Gage- can't wait to try some of the recipes! A fine addition to my collection of cookbooks!
ScharfenBergen Chocolate- 1 baking, 1 10th Anniversary bar! Oh my!
Michael Mischer Chocolate w/ cherries bar- An San Fran artisanal bar!
Dried Blenheim Apricots- I haven't had apricots this wonderful for a long time. I love them as an appetizer with a small piece of Saga blue cheese on top!
Raw pistachios! Can't wait to add these to my holiday baking!
Asian Pear& Ginger conserve from Eating with the Seasons. Crack that baby open!
A hemp grocery bag also from Eating with the Seasons. So light, it's going right in my purse.
A beautiful blue leaf pottery dish, fits right into my decor!
Finally Clove Soap from Hawaii. I want to take this soap to bed and stick it under my pillow!!! The smell is heavenly! When I opened the box, the scent hit me and oh, man, it's incredible! I am such a dork- I took the wrapping paper it was in with me to smell in the car since I had to run errands right after I opened my box!!! I wish they had scratch n sniff and I could share!
What a fun exchange! Thanks Betsy! And thanks to Stephanie, the Happy Sorceress, for hosting the event!
My box went to Dagmar in Sweden.

Wow, what a really cool thing to do! It is amazing how the internet has connected people from all over the world.

As an aside, I have to say, since I am very old, every time I see the name of your blog, I can't get that old Jay and the Techniques song out of my mind. I will be humming it all day long.
