Feeling very hygge today! *updated with combo picture*

Post by strike on Thu Nov 09, 2017 3:48 am

Oh my. Puschkin spoiled me! But she did make me work for my swap!



My package was tied up and taped up to make a safe journey to Canada. After getting through the packaging (finding my sharpest scissors to get through those ties), I was greeted with a lovely wrapped package, complete with bow!



As soon as I opened the paper, I could start to smell the treats inside. There was a winter fruit tea, little gummies, a snowman on a stick and a tub of little cookies. I tried one of the little cookies … and then another, and another, and another (four kinds, had to try them all! Very Happy) They are so perfectly bite-sized and taste like more … and a little jar of plum marmalade with cinnamon which I am very much looking forward to trying! The real question is, will I share any of it?



Then on to the pampering items: bath salts for relaxation (at the top of the above picture) and a lip balm, which is perfect as my oldest often wanders off with mine. And then a little santa/tomte ornament, which immediately scrambled up to join my collection (which is actually out year-round Very Happy) and a set of snowman tealight candles.



And then two lovely Trollbeads! The first, the Rising Sun bead from the Japan World Tour and the second a winter berries bead. I know that I shall be spending some time tomorrow playing  Smile  



But, that’s not all. These two sweet bracelets were also included in the package. The white one has beautiful little flashes which I tried to capture, but the picture really does not do them justice. And they are so comfortable to wear. I had both on tonight while ferrying my kids around to their activities. They are perfectly sized.  Hug



Thank you dear Puschkin for your wonderful hygge package!

*Update* The beads made their first outing today in a little red and white combo Smile

wow, that looks great.
Glad the package arrived that fast and that you like everything.
My little plum tree had tons of plums this year. We had frost late and the blossom of my apple tree freeze to death - so no apples, but the plum tree was obviously stimulated by the late freezing temperature... (all my neighbors are probably fed up with plum marmelade Laughing )
and the little stones of the bracelet are rainbow moonstones. I love to do these kind of bracelets when the nights are longer and it is cold and ugly outside.. I wear them in a stack like you with a not so full bracelet or bangle...

Such a chilled, festive package. I love the beads, anything Japanese and I'll love it while the summer bud was one of my first Trollbeads. Tasty looking snacks and that jam looks very morish Drool. Great job Puschkin.

I finally had a chance to try the marmalade yesterday - it was so very delicious (definitely morish, Pandabee)! I can't imagine that your neighbours could possibly be fed up with it! My eight-year-old also had a taste and was quite happy to have a second go at it Laughing I know that you did say that there was a tiny bit of rum in it, so I did limit her tasting. We had it on little mini toasts that are the size of small crackers (perfect for yummy spreads Very Happy)

Glad you like it... the rum alcohol has most likely vanished in the hot marmelade... so no danger for kids I guess Shocked
