Sweet mailbox, part 2

I think the mailman cheer-up plan has worked, I'm finally on the mend.

Back in October, I signed up for an autumn swap organized by the lovely Sofia. My package took a little while to get to me, but it was well worth the wait.

Can you guess the nationality of my swap partner? (the box is a hint)

Swap 1

This should give you more clues:

swap 3

Lise is from Switzerland (home of my beloved tennis boyfriend, who is hopefully on his way to winning #17 at the Australian Open). I highly recommend swap partners from Switzerland, as they send the BEST chocolate EVER. My Ricola box was filled to the brim with goodies that were obviously chosen with care:
something for my sweet tooth: incredible chocolate (sadly, all gone now)
something for my brain: books by authors I love, and luckily these are titles I had not yet read
something for my fingers: lovely bits of lace, sweet wood buttons, yarn in pretty, neutral colours
something to warm me up: amazing Earl Grey tea from Mariage Frères, which I have always wanted to try.

What a treat, thank you Lise!




Merci beaucoup Nicole! C'était un plaisir pour moi de partager ce swap avec toi .... Seul problème, on va se battre pour le tennis boyfriend !!!! mdr ;-)

Bisous enneigés de Suisse !




Lucky you, Nicole! What a wonderful parcel of goodies. That tea looks like just the ticket for someone who's under the weather.

Yummy! You just made me drool all over my keyboard ;-)
Frigor by Callier is THE best chocolate ever made by man (or woman) - if it was up to me, it would be put on the Unesco's World Heritage List...



lol ! Frigor is the ABSOLUTE Swiss chocolate ! It is THE ONE considered as THE BEST from Swiss natives. Also the ambassador of our speciality which is milk chocolate!




YES!!! the Frigor was amazing, but the Femina won my heart with its crunchy praliné filling. I'm almost glad they don't sell this chocolate here, or else I wouldn't fit into any of my clothes...

DO NOT share that Mariage Frères tea with anyone, it is AMAZING!!:)



Now THAT is an amazing package,just for the chocolate alone!
