Came back from a day of errands to find a running shoe box on the counter by the door. Christmas presents from my lady Rosalie in Vancouver!
I was right to be excited. The loot is SO GOOD.
Dexter got a hand made (in Canada) cate & levi puppet and a book about a tiny giraffe.
The Miss Sarah gifts are just as good. Rosalie must know about my love for Marimekko because she got me both a Marimekko memory game (equal parts dorky and beautiful) and a complete set of dinner napkins! We're big entertainers here at the bungalow and these are great because I can wash and reuse them over and over again.
People are so thoughtful when it comes to presents. I've also received the most delicious selection of things from my lady friend, Crystal. She was the one behind the Betsey Johnson necklace from my Christmas Eve post. What I didn't write about was the smoked sea salt she also got me, and a tiny little salt pig to go with!
AND vanilla bean paste.
There is also some fantastic smelling BBQ dry rub she brought me from Dallas while she was on a business trip. Unfortunately it's not as photogenic as the other items, but I'll have to take a picture of my dry rubbed meat another time.
I feel so lucky to have wonderful and generous friends who know me so well. I'm still reeling from the good feelings of this holiday season.
And to top it all off, I got a call from redbike today. Winter Kona is ready for pick up so you can expect to see pictures of me on it tomorrow!
