It was pretty overwhelming, when I opened the package, and saw all this stuff emerge under a layer of bubble wrap. I confess, when it comes to wrapped gifts, I'll never grow up, and open it with care. This is not the place to show how patient I can be.
There were the Klompen, of course. Each one of them held a skein of Dutch sock yarn. As it's pretty cool today, I could need a finished pair of socks already. I'm looking forward to knit with it. There was this wonderful bag, Hannah especially sew for me! I call myself "Bag Lady", because I love bags in all shapes, and sizes. She used some traditional Dutch fabric. Wow! Another thing I love are tins, and there was this precious little tin with waffles in it. We actually had waffles like that before, but they are so delicious, you can never have enough. The whole package smelled of roses, which came from a soap, Hannah included also. There were magnets, and a kerchief, and a lovely letter,card, AND a drawing from her daughter Vera!
It was overwhelming, and lovely, and it made my day!Love the tin, and look at those tiny wooden Klompen - so cute!
The Klompen fit perfectly, but should be worn with socks, or maybe, once they are worn in, they loose their edges a little? I overlooked a tea bag in one shoe, I drink tea, so yet another lovely surprise. I LOVE my very own Klompen! Biko seemed pretty interested in them as well...
