Blogging by mail

On Friday I received my secret blogging by mail parcel. I love participating in blogging by mail and food blogging by post (the European version) as it’s so much fun sending and receiving parcels! It’s a great way to get to know other people and cultures. It turned out that this time my parcel came all the way from Ohio in the US, from a fellow Daring Baker: Fran at Apples Peaches Pumpkin Pie. Thank you so much for your lovely parcel, Fran! And thanks to Stephanie at Dispensing Happiness for hosting the event. And the parcel that I sent? It is travelling to another continent….

Below you can see all the great things that I received from sweet Fran:

There’s something special with handwritten letters. I will make someone happy with handwritten letters written on the included stationary.

I’ve always been wanting American measuring cups so that I don’t need to convert all those recipes that I try out, so I was very happy for these.

I love mustard! And the silicone pot holder will come in handy.

The tangy lemon heads are my kind of sweets, lovely! The jellies were bought at the farmer’s market, I havn’t tried them yet but they look very promising.

I love cookie cutters and this pumpkin shaped one will surely be used during this week with Halloween coming up! On the picture you can also see cute party bags and even cuter cupcake sticks with animals!

Mmm, oatmeal scotchies. Delicious!!!

The cats were very curious when the parcel arrived

    Hi, Dagmar! How does one join Food Blogging By Post! I’d really love to take part in the event, but I always hear about it after it has taken place…

    Hi Mar,
    You need to check http://www.ismyblogburning.com/ every now and then. The parcel swapping is not very frequent though, the last one before this was in February.

    Ooh, how lovely! Those measuring cups look great! I really love having a set of US cups, it’s so nice not having to convert everything :)

    Whata fun event. Glad you got it all in a timely manner.Next time I’m over there I want European measuring tools. Makes sense!

    What a fantastic package to receive. I’m sure you’ll find the measuring cups very useful. And homemade treats too – how lucky you are.

    That looks like a great parcel – enjoy!

    Can’t help but laugh at your cats – my BSH is always the first to investigate a new parcel, too!

    What a great parcel you received. I love getting hand-writted letters too – nothing better!
    I’m not sure what oatmeal scotchies are but it looks as though they travelled well which is great.
