It's my birthday and my friend Carrie sent me a package filled love, sensuous pleasures, herbal delight, comfort and creativity! What a fabulous way to begin my birthday! I wanted to open it yesterday but waited as we discussed.
The scarf is scrumptious - chocolate brown wool knitted in enormous stitches - on her arms!!! It's called arm knitting! There is a pot holder perfect for carrying my little tea pot to the bedroom - it even matches it!
And the herbal products look good enough to eat! They are accented with labels, ribbons and hearts. She made Ming Lip Balm, a Lavender Candle, Lavender Bath Salts and Sugar Scrub and a scrumptious body butter made from Coconut and Lemon. It smells good enough to eat, but I'll resist. i'm feeling so blessed to have such a talented and generous friend!
