Thank you Tara !!











A most wonderful suprise present arrived today, all the way from America, from illustrator and blogging friend Tara, you can see her blog here: http://tlcillustration.blogspot.com/
Working from the top picture down, first you see my parcel, full of little parcels! Containing many goodies, chocolate and heart/valentine themed.
Underneath, on the left is a beautiful handmade card, and next to it, a sheet of fun stickers!
Next I scanned in the 3 little chocolate bars, which dont exist anymore, they were shared between myself, Laurence, and Toby, and were delicious. Then 2 little pink heart shaped soaps, made by Tara, as you will see if you visit her blog. A sweet little white ceramic heart decoration, and, already nabbed by Toby and displayed on our pin board, some cute little button drawing pins...what a great idea, never seen them before..this idea might well be used by natural attrill !
The following photo shows ingredients, plus receipe, for a special hot chocolate drink, with chilli, chocolate buttons and cinnamon sticks. Toby is just about to make one.
My most favourite of all is the last image, of the chilli, unwrapped, it is beautiful, I love the colour, shine, texture and smell. I had never heard of an Ancho Chilli before, have a look here:

Toby and I participated in the first parcel swap, and then the Christmas gift, but didnt join in this time with the Valentines event, so it was such a brilliant suprise to receive this unexcpected valentines gift from Tara, a big: THANK YOU !!

P.S. On the subject of SOSF, I have been trying to contact Chrissie, to check that our Xmas gift arrived ok, but not had any luck at all, does anyone know her?

You are, of course, very welcome. (I thought you would like the button-tacs :-).

Try sending an email to Maya (the admin for the Christmas event) and see if she has heard anything from your Xmas recipient?

Hi Tlc,
I have emailed Chrissie, Maya has emailed her, and I have left 2 comments on her blog, but no response at all....strange, thats why I wondered if any fellow bloggers know her.
Thanks again for the present.
Penny.

Mmm, chilies. There are so many varieties with so many different degrees of heat and flavor that it's fairly amazing.

Tara is a generous fairy indeed. :)

Toby, I am going to be brave and use a little of the chilli (as you said it was so good).
