my secret santa haul 2010

hey everybody!
sorry this has taken me a bit to get it posted,
but my laptop has taken ill & my internet access limited as a result.

but check out my goodies!

yay! here it is!


look at all the presents! such cool wrapping paper too!

hey! it's boy-pourri!

oh my maple goodness!

wrapping inside more wrapping! the playing card tags are cool!
my grandparents had that very deck! so cool!

a cool old tin! old tins are the best!
i can put my stuff in there!

yay! killer tea!

oh wow! this stuff is amazing!

ooh! another package within a package!

i love love love vintage & real picture postcards!
so rad!

cool! i dig old gardening books!

this one is really cool!

oh ya, it's a stinker! ha-ha
i love that it's just 1003!

now this is super rad! i love these sort of cookbooks!

this totally fits!


it's these sort of cookbooks that you find recipes like this!

and stuff like this!

i love it!

i like the looks of this!

oh fudge!


the fudge was amazing to say the least! so much goodness!

oh, what's this?



i do love me a jolly rancher, especially the watermelon ones,
and that honey candy is my new favorite thing, ever. soo good!

everything altogether!

also, you had no way of knowing, but i dropped & shattered the last latch top bell jar. these old ones are hard to find that still latch & seal! this is awesome!

sorry it took me a little bit to get this blog up. it was fun opening the package christmas day. i'm glad that i did, so that i could share all that fudge with everyone and to save the risk of them finding me in a sugar coma & a danger to myself.

the tea, the tea, the tea is amazing!
the caramel is really good, but that coconut takes the prize.
everything was so much fun & that cookbook is the best!

thank you so much jeanette/jet approves!

Jeanette better tell me how to make the pumpkin one.

I'm glad you finally opened it Christian. :P

jet approves

yay, i'm glad it all made its way to you safely. i was worried the glass jar might break and that would have been sad considering it's lasted over a century already. but it survived, so :).

mya, i don't know how to make fudge, either. i got it at this country market near my school. i've only ever had samples, but they've been delicious.


thanks so much! that jar is the best & thanks to bubblewrap for doing what it do!

that fudge was a big hit too! my mom & sister have been googling pumpkin fudge recipes.
