Nicolette's Goodies arrived!

In the middle of having my own giveaway, Nicolette's parcel arrived. She had wrapped all the little presents lovingly and separately and taken such care over the parcel!

Not only did I find the beautiful Lecien Cosmo Multi Work Threads I expected, she also made me a lovely heart ornament/pincushion and enclosed a little pink bracelet that supports breast cancer research (it has little charms on it and the enclosed leaflet says you have to tie it on and wait till it falls off and then make 3 wishes. If you do this they come true!),a nice card and ... last but not least... Haagse Hopjes!

These Dutch boiled sweets are named for the city Nicolette lives in (The Hague, or in Dutch, Den Haag) and have a coffee flavour. They are in my top 5 of best sweets ever and of course only available in Holland so I don't get them very often!

Lucky me! Thank you so much Nicolette. I have so enjoyed receiving your parcel and thanks for enclosing all the extras.

Isn't Nicolette a generous giver, these are beautiful, and I agree, those lollies are so nice xo

The pink threads - sweet! If coffee flavored treats are your favorite you might like Tax Time Crunch (a coffee flavored ice cream).
