Just received this package from Sue in Florida – it cost her over 26USD to send which is one of the reasons I’m not going to participate every month – the postage here in France is really expensive. Anyway, great stuff. I love the sand dollar – I don’t think I’ve ever seen one before. Also, there were some sharks’ teeth. Apparently there are loads to be found on the beach where Sue lives. She also sent me a postcard explaining the legend behind sand dollars. Each line, pattern and hole represent something to do with Christian imagery, apparently.
As the swap is supposed to include fabric and chocolate, I asked Sue to send me some Hersheys as that is SO American and, despite having been there several times, I’ve never tried it. A bit disappointing really – probably why you don’t see it anywhere else. Maybe I’m spoilt living in France (although my favourite is still Cadbury’s dairy milk – how sad is that?). Anyway, I’d never seen dark chocolate m&ms before so that was a bit different.
