KTS4, I think I've just become a swap addict...

I came home from a long day at work yesterday...(ahhh...everyday seems a long day at work after 2 weeks of vacation, I am so spoiled)....to a box smelling like a mix between spring and something sweet and delicious. I do wish all packages smelled like something candle-y :)

When I opened it, look what I found:

The sweet smell is from a Mango Mint Tea candle that Heather, my knitter's tea swap buddy made me, which was the source of the excellent aroma. It's now sitting on my coffee table making my living room smell pretty. I probably won't burn it for awhile because it smells so good just sitting there.

The yarn is Peace Fleece (warm wool from a cold war....that just makes me giggle) which is a Merino/Mohair blend that's nice and soft. She sent a pattern for a cute hat and gloves, which I am plsnning on casting on for as soon as I get the yarn would into balls.

The tea looks excellent and I can't wait to try it.

And lets not forget the innocuous looking brown box the tea is sitting on. That's a tin of Killer Brownies, the best brownies I have ever tried.....they're already half gone :) I might let Matt eat one...if he's good...and he's quick about it...
You'll have to turn your head sideways to adequately appreciate the brownies, I am so not enough of a tech geek to figure out how to turn that picture around, it looks right in my Picasa album...

I knew I should have wrapped that candle better, but I'm glad the smell! Yes, those brownies are local specialty food store and all to close to my house. There even make - are you ready for this - a cheesecake with the brownies mixed in. It's wrong on so many levels. :)
