Gifts from the UK


I was the winner on

I won a jar of

Victoria was so sweet and
sent a ton of extra goodies!

Yummy old school licorice!
Proper English tea & Jam!
Rose scented soap!
(divine, the whole bag smelt wonderful)
and some candies & choclates!


As for the marmite?
Not so much!
like there slogan says
"You either love it, or hate it!"

I just love the gift
bag Victoria sent.

it has a piece of sheet
music pasted in place
and ribbons.

such a great idea!

I will be using this one.

Happy Saturday!

Lucky you..what fun. I dated an Aussie (for about 3 seconds) years ago and he loved that stuff. Tried to get me to love it too. Yucky, the tea and jam look lovely. Her bag is great. What a good idea.

LOVE your blog, Jessi! You make so many really cute things & always have so much on your blog. Really like your "12 Days" scrapbook -- what a terrific idea -so beautiful! I felt lucky to get it all printed out & into a binder. Enjoy your "Wicked" adventure! Will pray all goes well with your upcoming surgery.

Marmite is not nearly as good as vegemite especially on hot toast with a big cold glass of milk. The secrete is you only put a tiny bit on. Maybe it is just something that you have to grow up with. I don't know anyone who doesn't like it but then again I am an Aussie and proud of it.

Cheers Linda

(P.S. I don't understand this peanut butter and jelly thing we eat our jelly with ice cream)
