The chili seasoning smells like heaven! Must find some way to make crunchy snacks with it! Had to laugh when I read that you ate it like candy, because it says two places on the bottle that it's not candy ;P
Love the cow, and the frog almost lost it's tongue on the first try, I had a cat on my lap that went into instant killing mode when he saw it!
Response: Hehe so glad you like it all ;) yes I know but we always ate as candy.. I'm sure you can put it on just about anything! Just don't eat the whole bottle at one time as candy... Oh well hope it works. Aah the poor frog almost lost his tongue that's awesome. Thanks for swapping

Hapy sipping..I'm going to get another cup now!!
Comment: Oh my goodness! This was quite the package! I love everything, especially the memo board, it goes perfectly in my kitchen. I feel a little sheepish about my package now, but I hope you like it!

Comment: Oh, Mary! The mail just came & I opened the (outside) envelope from you - a mass of velvet ribbons & the most exquisite parcel inside took my breath away. I'm on my way to an appt so I haven't time to savor it all properly. I'm not sure I want to spoil (by opening) that masterpiece anyway (& I need to catch my breath) ...perhaps I'll feast my eyes on it for awhile! Just wanted you to know it arrived in perfect condition - I'll definitely write again.
Response: YEAH so glad you rcvd it!! Thank you for the sweet comments ;)
