Wonderful mail from Portugal

I received a wonderful package all the way from Portugal today.  I love mail - especially packages!

Manuela sent me a mug rug for a swap we participated in from Aunt Pitty Pat's blog.  The package was to include a mug, a mug rug, a candy cane, a favorite recipe, and a beverage mix.

How could she know that red is my absolutely favorite color?  And I have a special place in my heart for snowflakes! The mug rug has an appliqued reindeer and there is also a little handmade ornament with a tiny little red reindeer attached to the clip.  I love them! The beverage is a "hot chocolate spoon".  Since it is so cold this weekend, that hot chocolate spoon will probably get used right away.  The recipe is for a traditional Portuguese orange cake which I look forward to trying.   And this snowflake cup will get used all through this long snowy winter.

Many thanks Manuela - I'm loving every item you sent.
