I shared this recipe with a link a while back..
I have to tell you..or humbly suggest to you that you make it.
I know it off by heart now.
Jacques always requests this one.
It's such a keeper..
I know the recipe by ♥ now..I'll write it at the end so you can know it off by ♥ also..
Sidestepping here..if I may..speaking of ♥s..
It's a nifty tong..unlike any I have ever owned..
Marie told me she would be popping it into the mail..
She lives in England..it's quite a flight..
In so little time it arrived:)
But two boxes arrived from England.
I was perplexed and wondered what was in the other box.
Well Marie remembered that I love the mini Bonne Maman jam etc jars..
I have a honey one that I put little bouquets in..but was on the search for a few more..on a wish list..
Wrapped all individually in a cute yellow teacakes box..tumbled out these mini Bonne Maman jars:)
A dear little greeting card..sweet ribbon..
Some of Marie's own cards from her own artwork..and two cute little cards I have put in my wallet that have her business stamp on the back..
C'mon..you must admit this girl is filled with talent.
Amazing to say the very least and in person..even more perfect if possible.
Charming and Perfect.
It is amazing to me that her work is not in stores..
She does have a CD available at Ooh lalacreations..
But I see a fully commercially marketed cookbook maybe?
A whole little section in stores with cards and aprons and cookbooks etc..
First of all she could write her own cookbook with all her recipes..illustrate them..and then there would be this whole collection of cuteness to go with..
Helloo..someone should listen to me..
It is not unusual for bloggers to get to know each other and send little souvenirs through the mail..
In fact even Christmas presents get exchanged..
Or we win something..
I don't usually post about these things....because to me these things are private..and it is not a usual happening..But I won a prize..:)
I think I have won 3.
Susan..Helene..and now Marie..
In 5 years:)
Probably because I don't enter giveaways..but if a blog I follow religiously is having one..I can't not comment ...
PLUS I feel her art should be shouted out from the rooftops..
And this is the perfect op!
Plus the little jars..:)
Because they are dear.
just thoughtful thoughtful.
Sometimes little things appear on a day..that was longing for a little extra sparkle...
