"NOVEMBER COMES AND NOVEMBER GOES, WITH THE LAST RED BERRIES AND THE FIRST WHITE SNOW; WITH NIGHT COMING EARLY, AND DAWN COMING LATE, AND ICE IN THE BUCKET AND FROST BY THE GATE. THE FIRE BURN AND THE KETTLE SING, AND EARTH SINKS TO REST UNTIL NEXT SPRING." ~ELIZABETH COATSWORTH~
Surprises....I love being the recipient of a surprise .... especially when the mailman is willing to brave my long.... muddy.... rutted....wet.... driveway to hand deliver a package....could there be anything better to brighten one's day than to receive a package in the mail? I think not.... My package was from Tress proprietor of the blog.... Warmth And Comfort In The Home....we were swap partners in Char's (THE PICKLED PEPPER PATCH) SPRING swap.... As explained in her note Tress had a BEE theme going on....what a delightful grouping of items she gathered for me. First let me say the package smelled heavenly....of scented beeswax and spring. I found enclosed a BEE themed dish towel.... BEE skep note pad....BEES wax candle....scented wax BEE Skeps....spring sign....glass milk bottle....and faux lavender....such a wonderful package to receive on this cold....snow flurry....March day. Thank you Tress....you're items are greatly appreciated and I can't wait to display them here at Dog Trot Farm! HAPPY SPRING to you!
