Dispensing Happiness

A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.-Elsa Schiapirelli

That's me, the magical good cook.

Borrowing from my friend Dexygus, I've created my own food blog.

Read of my exploits in the kitchen! Salivate over the descriptions of fabulous desserts and savory meals I've concocted!

No, seriously...go ahead. It'll make my day.

BBM: Pretty Things from India


There's always an awkward moment, during Blogging by Mail match-ups. It comes when I need to find someone to send me a package. Nothing like saying 'hey, give me stuff, ok?' to someone you don't know!

This time the task was given to Gauri, of Life Rules in India.

And what a lovely, & unexpected, package I got!!

A pretty holiday card.

A bag of tea. Because...in my house...few things are better than tea!

A wonderful hand-written note on very pretty paper.

And jewelry!! Gauri sent two kinds.

These gorgeous beaded necklaces & earrings, which she made herself (and just happened to 'know' purple & blue are among my favorite colors?).

And these amazing & so-delicate terra cotta pieces, as well!

Jewlery, for me, is definitely an indulgence. So thank you, Gauri...I get to feel pretty & special with my new accessories!!
