mail, sweet mail, and two things of which I never tire

I've had all sorts of great goodies arrive in the mail as of late. Firstly, sweet Sarah sent me some lovely dishcloths! I asked Phillip which of the dishcloths was his favourite, and he chose the blue one above for me to photograph. They're my favourite kind - they do such a nice job of scrubbing, and will definitely make washing up more enjoyable. Don't you think that the pattern above looks like little peaks of frosting? Mmmm. And how's that for a gorgeous envelope? (It may be my favourite part of the package. Shhh, don't tell Sarah!) I also received this beautiful thank you note from classy Joslyn. It's just right, in every possible way.
This one didn't come in the mail, but I found it at Frenchy's. I've got soap-dishy plans for it, and think it's right up there with bees knees.
Also in the mail, I received a beautiful package of swappy loveliness from Spain, including this beautiful Italian-made notebook,
these leather dishes which the swapee made,
and a sweet little leather pouch which she also made, along with a few other goodies. I sent her soaps and scrubs and other bath goodies. I love a good swap. Yay, mail!
Two things of which I never tire:
1. This is one of my favourite driving albums of all time. Track 1 is fab.
2. Star Anise, in any form.

I seem to be having a busy few weeks at work, which is fun, but leaves me tuckered out at the end of the day. So I'm off to enjoy the bounty that is magazine week - the week when all of the next month's magazines arrive in the mailbox. Happy Wednesday!

The soap dish from Frenchy's is pretty special.

And who knew you liked Sam Roberts? Mariah Carey and Sam Roberts? Who are you? :)

Were you at the Red Knight when he was there a hundred years ago? (before his first record came out) I was, unfortunately.

I love swapping. We had a clothes swap a couple of months ago between friends and it was SO MUCH FUN!! Almost as fun as Frenchy's! :)

Wow, so many nifty things! I'm totally digging the soap dish...

Thanks! Ingrid, there are special notes to you at the end of the next post. And no, I wasn't there. Unfortunately. :)

Vickie, thanks for the book! It arrived today. :)
