Gifts From Sweet Shamu

My wonderful girlfriend Shamy sent me a package on Tuesday. And it was filled to the brim with so many awesome goodies!


There was yummy Spicy Brown Mustard and Chili Fruit Sauce that she had made and canned. A cutting from her Old Faithful Sage plant (it has survived three Kansas winters). A box of chocolates, a refurbished chicken feeder, recipes, a cat toy for Kitty, a magnetic doggie sign, and a sparkly crabby key chain. Awesome stuff Shamy. Thank you so much girlfriend!

That bacon hand towel sure paid dividends. The Chili Fruit Sauce alone is a great gift. The sage won't be ready for Thanksgiving but maybe Christmas if you get it outside. Very nice gesture on Shamu's part.

Dani said...

Buzz, and she even gave me the recipe for it!!!!SO COOL!

I hope the little sage plant makes it. I usually only have a blackthumb when it comes to marigolds and squash.

Sandcastle Momma said...

What a great gift! I can't wait to see your green thumb turn that sage into a tree of epic size LOL

WHOOOHOOOOOO!

OK the little soft plastic crab is like treasure to me because I can't find them anymore. The one I have is my good luck charm in my car, keeping me from too much road rage.
Son of Old Faithful looks like his life is going to be much more fun than Old Faithful's life here in Kansas.
I'm going to have to rethink my labeling of jars that go into the frig, I thought once they dried they stayed white. Good to know.

That Chili Fruit Sauce is just an extension of Susan over at 29 Black Street. I bet the Cowboy would enjoy some. Please note I gave up one of my Chickory Chicken cards but I'm practicing my sharing skills so it seemed appropriate.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your 15 Items experiment. I know I had a good time doing it.

How exciting!

What fun! I always enjoy getting little treats in the mail. :)

Dani said...

ScMomma, keep your fingers crossed. :)

Sham, who knew that having crabs could help with such things as road rage?!

You shared very well. Thank you. Hehehe
I get the Bas Bleu catalogs in the mail just for her paintings on the front cover.

Darla, it was!

Lisa, I'm off to the post office tommorrow to mail your little treat. :)

What is that longish item that goes across the photo, with holes in it?

Big Shamu said...

It's a rehabbed chicken feeder. I thought it would make a great arts supply holder, a place to keep your brushes, colored pencils and crayons within easy reach.

Making Space said...

Wow - so sweet and beautiful! And such a lovely presentation in the photo for the rest of us to see. Have fun with your new treasures!

Buzz Kill said...

MMMMMMMM....donuts...and beer.

Dani said...

Bahahahahaha! Sounds like a good 15 items package to me.

Big Shamu said...

Can you send beer in the mail?

Dani said...

I think you can FedEx it.

Boxer said...

LOVE those chocolates. Shamy is a great gift finder/giver. The fact that she parted with her beloved crab says it all.

Dani said...

Boxer, little crab is happy here. Seems to like spending his day hangin' with the flamingos and Son of Old Faithful.

Wow, Dani, Sham sure spoiled you! What a lucky ducky! Sometimes I wish the world was just a bit smaller...or transporters were invented already!!
