the best stuff comes from hearts and hands

I’m wiped out today. Just a lot going on lately. But recently I have been getting some wonderful packages in the mail from friends. I have to post some of them here because they’re lovely and special. Homemade/handmade gifts are truly delightful as are the people who made them. I’m lucky to have such a jolly and creative lot for friends. They royally kick ass.

    Sher – thanks!

    Peabody – I didn’t know what a scuppernong was until I came across one in a store in Atlanta. That very day a few hours later, my friend Joyce (the one who sent me the jellies) told me she was going to pick scuppernongs and gave me this link. In the store, they had crates of them. They look like shiny metallic gold/green giant grapes. I asked my mom what they were and she didn’t know, so she popped one in her mouth and them made this face as if she were eating a lemon. She said they were horribly sour and we passed them by. Turns out, you don’t eat the skins because… they’re incredibly sour! So I was totally intrigued.

    MPG – thank you.

    Kaykat – isn’t it? Everyone who sees it loves it.
