I know we've all over-indulged over
the Christmas and New Year festivities
I have to show you this gift from my
dearest friend

An adorable french sac
crammed full of the scrummiest
baked and bottle goodies! 

 Melt in your mouth
almond shortbread hearts

Raspberry Vinaigrette
Red Pepper Jelly and

The most exquisite collection of
sumptuously divine chocolates
all hand made.

Thank you dear friends

for your kind comments.

Merci à bientôt
be kind to one another!

Dearest Shane,
WOW, your dearest friend Jennie is a TRUE friend as she gave so much LABOR OF LOVE in such a strikingly elegant way. Such gifts you will not be able to find store bought and that French sac itself looked already perfect.
Hugs and enjoy such moments and their after glow. That is what feeds our soul for making it through the valleys of life.

You got my attention with "lemon cello!" YUM!

Mary said...

I love that word 'scrummiest', it's never used here that I know of, but we did use it in England when I was young!!!!

What a magnificent gift - Jennie is a fab friend I'm sure.

Again, happiest of new years Shane dear....stay well and be joyful each day.
Hugs - Mary
