Sitting on our back porch today was a box from San Luis Obispo, California. It brought along bright sunny skies, but unfortunately left the warm California temperatures, flowers and green grass behind.
But, the most important things that came along with the box were some wonderful gifts from a blogger friend ~ my very first! Do you know Kary at My Farmhouse Kitchen blog? She has a delightful and delicious blog - along with sweet Teddy. Please stop by and see her wonderful blog!
I'm using these adorable little dish rags as large coasters under several things in my kitchen - my electric kettle, and two large antique pottery fruit bowls. These sweet little knitted squares slide easily when we slide the bowls or kettle over the counters - preventing any scratching. They are too pretty for me to use as rags - but that's me - LOL!
To make things even more wonderful, Kary included several delicious items in her package - perfect for an afternoon tea here at Frog Hollow Farm.
Since we're expecting rain and gusty winds this week, I think I'll be making the Strawberry Scones and Sweet and Spicy Good Earth tea one of these afternoons. The scones will be delicious with the wonderful Avila Valley Barn strawberry and raspberry fruit spread - yummy!! The only thing missing is some clotted cream, but I think I must find some!
So, thank you so much Kary for your generous gift - it was such a sweet gesture!
