Comment: I LOVE your dishware which made for a spectular photo. Your pudding looked as picture perfect as on any BBC4 documentary, lol!! I used whole mik for my Jesmond but even that didn't help with the flavor or lack thereof...but I will try your method to see if I was having first-time incompetence. Maybe, I think I flub it just so I could make warm vanilla custard (smile). I can't wait to try more recipes, if we dare! xxToni
Comment: Anna, your adorable journal card arrived today and so clever to make it with the fold-out message! I love interactive crafts and yours was so charming. Thank you for the New Year message and I hope that spring arrives soon for you! xxToni
* I forgot to say THANK YOU for the Harry Potter postage stamp - I can't get enough of them. I have the US ones locked in the family safe...I'm such a loon!
Comment: Elizabeth, your character is such a wicked delight and I look forward, possibly, to an evening spent with Miss Appropriation. What a clever play on words. I shall endeavor to keep my items about my persons but I fear the mulled wine might cause a slight detractor if I slip too far into a wonderful conversation. The ball will be fun and I am so happy to partake.🎉 Anna - this is another fun swap!!! xxMuggleMom
Comment: How do I thank you for 2 beautiful pieces of work, I love them. And yes, I would be delighted to add a few New students to the Art class, I am looking forward to meeting Miss Salley Owen and Miss Simone., Looking forward to seeing them in the New Year,.
Response: Hester, I know you will enjoy having the girls as pupils, their youthful enthusiasm is so cheering. Thank you for agreeing to tutor all three of my girls. You are most welcome for the journal card and holder. I'm happy you liked them. Elizabeth/Anna
Comment: Your currie looked impressive, vastly different from the colour of mine. Is Galangal a dark red coloured vegetable or spice? Mine was insipid looking. Anyhow, the image of your experiment looked very appetizing. Hearts galore. xx
Response: I used ginger as I could not find the galangal, I think it was the tikka sauce I added to spice the flavour up that gave that rich dark colour. Can't wait for the next recipe trial swap. Anna ♥
Comment: Thank you so much for the nice letter and this newspaper!!! Wow!! I love it---such a genius idea. I had to tell my husband all about it (since it really is him, in another world!) Blessings!

Comment: Oh Anna, how I love your swaps! I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this one! I am in awe of your handwriting - I can do one or two pretty fonts myself, however one similar to yours is what I yearn to learn! It is so reminiscent of our Georgian era and invokes such an authenticity to your writings!
I do understand what you mean about having trouble with the zentangles - I had trouble myself as well, but yours turned out so beautifully! I love that you mounted them on the red paper, it makes them look ever so striking. And I must say, what beautiful designs you chose as well! Such perfection in execution down to the smallest detail! I shall be so happy to place them in an honored spot in my journal, to remind me along with your beautiful letter what it might feel like to walk along the river Farrow.
The miniature tags I utterly adore, and cannot wait to find the perfect application for them! You know my tastes too well. And everything matching in light blue... I shall go on and on! You spoil me so. The pianoforte tape and the postcard and the way you packed each item was just decadent icing on the already delightful cake! I truly savored the discovery of each small parcel you included. Thank you so much for a most charming and artful letter!
Response: Dearest Amanda, I cannot tell you what a wonderful surprise it was to read your comment about my zentangles. Thank you ever so much for all your lovely compliments, you made my day shine! Of course you can achieve the same writing I have, I practiced one letter at a time, using an old document as a guide. If you do it that way, soon you will have the lovely writing you crave. It does take time but it is well worth it.
Once again ,thank you for your lovely comment and for the heart. I look forward to swapping with you again. Anna ♥
Comment: It arrived so quickly thank you so much. A pretty rosette and a very pretty letter x 2. I love the soft ribbon and the way it falls, it will be treasure to be sure. Carrie sends thanks with alacrity, Eliza. Many blessings and hearts

Comment: dearest Anna, I recd. your lovely letter today in the post; I am glad you are feeling better. Your little notebook about your characters sounds wonderful.

This group has opened a whole new world to me and I just love it. Hope this finds you well and having a wonderful day. Barbara
Response: What a lovely comment Barbara. It's so nice to hear you are inspired by the group and our swaps. I have written down a generation or two for my characters also.

Comment: Thanks for the BEAUTIFUL bookmarks. I ended up making a giant mess when I worked on your bookmarks too! (They also turned up nothing like I'd planned.) I'm a big fan of all the Austen movies and some of the different spins on her books. Right now I'm reading the original Pride and Prejudice. I feel like I can recite the dialogue! Let me know if you have other swap ideas. I'd love to swap with you again.

My sister was with me when I opened your packages and each little thing brought more exclamations of delight, from the sweet wrappings and little tags to the homemade book and the teacup... and everything else. There was NOTHING that wasn't extra special. The LONDON postcard pouch with a penny inside, the peacock notebook (I love the texture of that thing), the beautiful stationery... (the teacup had me in smiling tears!)...the book of quotes is SO BEAUTIFUL. I can't say enough... I owe you five more birthday packages and I know it!!!!
Response: Yay! It arrived! I hope you will like everything. There is another package, something I wanted to send by itself so it wouldn't get crushed. I loved the way the box looked after I wrapped it up. I'm glad it was a happy package for you and that you will like the gifts as much. Happy Birthday!
Holly, your comment made my day! The best gift is giving a gift that is loved. I was holding my breath hoping the teacup wouldn't get broken in transit. I bought me one of those too! The quote book was a pleasure to make, I'm so glad you like it. This was such a happy swap, thank YOU!
