Not only was it beautifully wrapped (I started to include the front of the package when I realized it has our full address!)
The package included a beautiful scarf which I later found out she purchased from an op shop (similar to our thrift/consignment stores, I think) which I personally think is so cool! Yes, I know I used the word cool at my age... I love finding a good deal especially if it means being able to repurpose or regift something!! I hate to see things go to waste. Now back to this incredible package... Litle packages of Australian native seeds, mixed chocolates, macadamia nuts, cinnamon macadamia/almonds/cashews, honey roasted nuts, adorable buttons, australian flags (the kind on toothpicks), fruit balls, (pineapple, date, cherry, and pawpaw), a small jar of Vegemite, a box of chocolate covered macadamias, wonderful teas, a butterfly, small orange tongs, a natural hand scrub, pasta w/ a map of Australia on the box, iron bark honey, Lucas papaw treatment, mango & macadamia conserve, and the most incredible piece of native Aborigine art! Oh I almost forgot about the homemade ANZAC (Australia New Zealand Air Corps) cookies (they were gone before the day was out!!) And everything was wrapped with ribbon and a small flower. (I see the flowers being used in an arrangement!)
Regina, I know you don't have a blog but I wanted to just say how thankful I am! You truly went over and above with this box! And I must say I am truly enjoying getting to know you and look forward to the future and getting to know you better!
These are the things I put in Regina's box...
Because Regina does not have a blog she asked me if I would post a picture of her box from me...
"the parcel arrived today! Thank you so much. The scarf is beautiful & I really like it and will surely get a lot of wear out of it, I can't wait to try out the tortilla press and we've devoured the chocolate bars already :) Came home and were rather hungry, so the choccy bar came in very handy. The soap smells and looks really nice and again I'm wanting to try it out straight away.
I've taken a photo, will you be able to put it up on your blog, please? ...... It will be interesting to see what everyone has posted/received. The photo is attached.
Thank you very much for all the goodies - it is nice to get a surprise parcel! Must do this more often for others, it's so much fun as well." - Regina
I can't begin to say what a blessing this has been. Drop on over to Carrie's to see the other posts!!
Edit: Mrs. K was kind enough to point out both addresses were visible so I took a minute to photo shop them out! Thank you
