Can you guess who sent me these pretty packages? (Don’t peek!)
Hint: The language on the card is Greek and the sender is a blogger.
Yup. It’s none other than our very own sweet, pretty Poppy over at PoppyView.
Now, we all know she’s an amazing poet and singer, but did you also know she’s a kick ass baker? Neither did I, but I (and my scale) know now!
Nestled inside that lovely wrapped package were these delectable delights that Poppy baked just for lil’ ol me! The moment I unwrapped the container, I was immediately greeted with a delightfully distinctive lemony fragrance, which originated from Poppy’s very own lemon tree.
These delicious Greek Easter cookies, which were carefully and lovingly wrapped, traveled across the pond to my humble abode where, I dare say, they were consumed post haste with afternoon tea or coffee by myself and Fisherman.
Although it took over two weeks for the parcel to arrive, the cookies were perfectly intake and tasted as fresh as the day they were made, I’m sure.
This adorable package housed some delicious Cretan honey, which, according to Poppy, derives its delicate flavor from thyme, wildflowers and conifer tree essence.
I use honey fairly often as a sweetener in smoothies, but I wanted to highlight the delicate taste of this honey in a recipe and I remembered I had a fabulous fruit salad dressing using honey as one of its primary ingredients. Now that Spring is here and fresh fruit is readily available, I thought I’d share this easy and healthy dish with you.
Yes, the world is a big place, but seems infinitely smaller and warmer when one is blessed to have such sweet and thoughtful blog friends like Poppy. It’s a wonderful thing…

Thanks so much for the much needed feedback and advice about the rug and recliner a couple of weeks ago. I’ve decided on the dining room rug, which is this one:
It’s out of stock right now but hopefully should be available sometime in May. I’m still not 100% sure about the living room rug, but I’m leaning toward this one in the middle:
My only hesitation is that the background might be a little too dull, but when I looked at a closeup it looks slightly brighter than it appears in the picture so I’m cautiously optimistic it will work.
Spring has FINALLY arrived here in Massachusetts, and now our thoughts our leaning toward fixing up the yard. The first order of business is to build a fire pit. Do you have one? What kind? Any suggestions would be welcome.
