Sweet surprise

Last night after work I went to my mailbox, hoping against hope that my buttons would be there. (They are coming from California, so it will probably be at least a week more - but a girl can hope right...?)

Well, my buttons weren't there, but there was an enormous box. When I got it inside, I tore into it eagerly, discovering a very sweet surprise from my friend Natalie

A whole kilo of fresh honey from her very own bees, handmade soap, and knitterly buttons. This awesome parcel was a thank-you for the Bee beret I made her last year.
Dave immediately got into the honey when he got home and has declared it the best honey ever! Thank you so much Natalie!


(ETA.... the buttons arrived today! They got shipped to Mom because I used the company Paypal! Ha!)

How lovely. (I was going to say 'how sweet' but that would have been cheesy) ...

What do the buttons say?

What a lovely surprise! Good honey is fantastic in cooking too. I use it on corned silverside after giving it a good rinse; it seems to neutralise the salt and makes it taste wonderful!

Oh yummy! I wish I lived closer to Natalie, so I could buy some honey from her.
