A gift from France!

I had a very nice and unexpected surprise today. The postman came and sent me a big box of goodies from Marie who lives in France. Marie is one my customers turned friend, and we talk about desserts almost daily. It is true!

I'm so lucky because Marie sent me boxes of Bonne Maman biscuits & LU biscuits. I don't think it can be found locally. These are very well known brands in France, and she mentioned they are delicious. And of course, I love the packaging of Bonne Maman biscuits. Don't they look adorable?

Besides biscuits, Marie also sent me non-edible stuff. I tell you, the Olive Oil body gel on the right in the photo smells so heavenly that I won't bear to use it. Vintage cups, gift tags, a faux cupcake (so pretty!!), heirloom vintage french linen table cloth, faux white roses, a book of Petits Desserts (amazing photos), and a Bonne Maman Jam bottle....and guess what's in the bottle? Those are petal soaps. I initially thought they were flower petals that she plucked fresh from her garden, but I asked Marie and she told me they were petal soaps! Oh my, I went to try it out at the wash basin and they do melt away once I mix it with water.

These are not all actually. There was another sachet of scented fabrics, which I put it right away in my closet and forgotten to take a photo of it. And I got some baguette packaging which I think I'll try to do something with it :) And some brochures of places of interest from her home town...

Many thanks to Marie, I cannot find enough words to express my thanks, but you are the sweetest !!
