The mailman just came about 15 minutes ago and I heard a light bang on the front porch. I wasn't expecting any packages but I ran to the door anyway. I figured if there was a box there, something good was probably in it (since I usually forget that I've purchased something pretty, then the box arrives and I'm surprised).lol

I looked at the return address and knew something wonderful was going to be inside. Hand made with TLC and sent to me out of the kindness of her heart, Francie of The Scented Cottage shipped me the most amazing faux sweets I've ever seen. The packaging and presentation was gorgeous. I received three cupcakes, three small desserts, cookies, tarts and garden seeds. Each item was individually wrapped in a beautiful box tucked underneath hot pink tissue. The smaller items were wrapped then placed in organza bags and the seeds came in their own separate envelope tucked in a lovely yellow bag just for them.

The pictures will give you a wonderful view of what a corner of my kitchen looks like at the moment. Run, don't walk to Francie's website. Not only is she a lovely person with a wonderful heart, she shares her sense of humor and amazing talent with all of us.

Hi Cathy,

I totally agree with you about Francie of the Scented Cottage. I won one of her giveaways a few weeks back and thought her presentation was amazing. I can see how beautifully she packaged your wonderful gifts. They look perfect. Enjoy every minute of them. Francie is a lovely lady and so are you. :-)
