Someone across the world knows me well..
Look what came overseas to live here..
I had a plan for Canada Day cookies.. from Terry..thank you..I will make them..:)
But ..I got sidetracked:)
Cookie cutters are some of my favorite things:)
Kitchen things..but more specifically baking things..
So much so that a few days before Father's Day..one of our daughters asked me what I thought Jacques would like..we always say NOTHING,...just being with you guys..etc..
This time I said..maybe I should ask him if he would like something for the kitchen?:) She cracked me up and answered:"like what mom a new Bundt pan?".
Cracked me up.
We get our mail at the end of our road..sometimes I go..Jacques goes..we go..
he went Monday..and came home w/ a parcel from England..
A long box..I wondered what could be in it?
Well the cutest British Cookie Cutters and a darling hand painted bookmark by Marie~
I don't like to write about when we bloggers exchange sweet things..I don't know why but I am shy about it..to me it's kind of private..we all get to know little things about each other in personal ways and if something sings someone's name..well we are on it:)
I overcame my shyness because many of you follow Marie..and I knew you would get a kick out of her thoughtfulness..
I sure did.Sometimes She Gets Carried Away:)
I made some the very next morning..the day the clematis started to really shine and the shasta daisies were so happy:)
Like I was when I had these sweet things on the counter all baked with our home smelling like sugar cookies and custard.
I took out my mom's silver things.. ,one of her tea cups..my grandmother's napkins.. a napkin ring..one of 4 Mary sent me sooo many years ago..
How are you Mary?
Picked some roses..
You can make the cookies with other cutters.and stamp them..
...and you cand find Marie's recipe..on her blog here.
Never have I made something of Marie's that has not turned out perfectly.
I have a baking binder with the recipes I have made that we have all loved.
She is a quintessential baker.
Her recipes are in grams and in ounces..cups etc..
Are they cute or what?!♥
Merci beaucoup Marie..
