A surprise package from Hawaii!

Over the weekend, I received an unexpected and thoroughly delightful package from tea friend Lani in Hawaii. The highly decorated envelope was just a hint of what lay underneath!

Lani had written a while back to tell me about a new puzzle she had found with a prominent tea scene. Well, she has enjoyed the puzzle herself and now is passing it along to me. I absolutely love this idea of a passalong puzzle!

She even included printouts of the completed puzzle, which will definitely be of help!

And look at this: she separated the edge pieces for me. (Hallelujah!)

And last but not least, she generously included some teatime treats: Biscoff cookies (which I usually get only when I'm on an airplane and they're offered) and some Hawaiian Royal Cream Crackers, which are sooooo good when dunked in a cup of hot tea! So thank you, Lani, for the great gifts and the great puzzle ideas! 


  1. What a thoughtful thing to do - not only passing along the puzzle, which is a great idea, but separating the edges and sending photos of the completed project. And then to include such nice treats, makes this a wonderful surprise package for you.

  2. That's a lovely treat and the puzzle will be perfect for our approaching wintertime! So many kind friends in blogland!

  3. Those are such nice gifts from your friend in Hawaii! I love those Biscoff cookies with tea. And what a nice puzzle, too!--from Vernona in DC

  4. What a sweet gift. I love the painting that the puzzle is made from. I know that from a card I purchased in England. To have the edges already picked out for you? Now that is a gift! It is going to be fun!

  5. Lani isthe best puzzle sharer ever. What a great idea to separate the edges. Enjoy your goodies.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
