Blessings Arrive by Mail ~

I am feeling overwhelmed at all the goodies
that arrived at my door today. I will tell you that they came at
*just the right moment*...
when I needed a pick me up.
I opened my back door to go out and do some
weeding and there was a package from the mailman waiting.
Just for ME ~
These wonderful blessings are from a giveaway that I won from Tracie over at
My Petite Maison.
Just look how wonderful everything was packaged...
Thought it was my birthday ~
She even sprinkled lavender buds and glimmery silver shred
in amongst the goodies. How did she know that
I ADORE
the little touches ~
What amazing items. I love it all Tracie! Thank you so much!!

My goodies include: The Heirloom Tomato Cookbook Music for Two Hearts CD Cooking Salt (from France) Adorable little wooden scoop (from France) Lip Treatment (from France) 2 teabags (from France)

I did a little research on the amazing salt and found out that:

"Sel Gris or Grey Salt is a cooking salt from the coast of Brittany in France where it is still made using time-honored way that was carried through the centuries. In February of each year salt farmers sculpt eight-chambered clay beds and flood the first chamber with water from nature preserves. During the next three months, the salt moves from chamber to chamber. In July after the water has reached the eighth chamber, the salt crystallizes in it's purest form. The farmers then rake salt to the edge of each bed. The salt picks up it's gray color and distinctive flavor from the healthy blue-green-hued minerals in the clay bed's bottom."

Now I have decided that I am moving in with Tracie...lol~ I adore anything French or from France.

May you be richly blessed for your kindness to me I am walking on clouds today... Blessings~
