Book bloggers Christmas swap





Yay! Look at what was in the mail for me today! My Secret Santa parcel, from Jessie in Georgia; http://www.casual-dread.blogspot.com/




First, there were these packages, all very carefully wrapped in extremely cute paper :

Then, this is what was inside (and I'm sorry, they were so well-wrapped, I had to tear the paper!)



We have: Four tins of Altoid mints (I really like them, but can't buy them here). There's Creme de Menthe, Cinnamon, Peppermint and Wintergreen. Two CDs; one of Brer Rabbit stories (Jessi's hometown is the home of the author of the stories) a CD of Christmas songs, which I"m going to listen to tonight; a leather bookmark from the Uncle Remus Museum and Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris.

Jessi, thank you so much; it's a great parcel and I love everything! :)
