Inspired to Clean!!

I recently participated in a swap over at "The Homespun Heart" and "With all that I've been Given"...My swap partner lives in the U.S. and yesterday my package safely arrived with the postie....what fun I had opening it....inside were some wonderfully inspired goodies including: "Mr Clean" magic eraser (can't wait to get him to work!!!); lemon dishwashing liquid; an Instant Stain remover pen (what a great idea); jasmine hand lotion; heavy duty cleaner and degreaser concentrate; real ground coffee (my favourite) and some flavoured coffee sachet (which I haven't ever tried before); some instant Pink Lemonade (which sounds really refreshing) and some very interesting and yummy sounding mint choc-chip Baskin & Robbins Candy; a few beautiful postcards from the area where Ginger lives and 2 books from the "Mitford Series" which I have been introduced to via other bloggers' who are fans.
I am quite amazed at the range of things they seem to have in the U.S. which I have never seen here in Australia....makes me want to go visit!!!
I am feeling very inspired to get cracking and use some of the cleaning products and then sit down for a relaxing cuppa and treat and read my new books. Thanks SO much Ginger and thanks to Monica and Carrie for organising the swap....
here is a photo of all the goodies I received......

I am still in awe that you received it exactly 8 days after I mailed it. I didn't know whether you had any of our cleaning products in Australia, so I wanted to give you a good sampling. I do hope you enjoy them and the "me" items like the books and body lotion. You've got to pamper yourself after cleaning.

Wow - you will have a clean place!! What fun!

I LOVED Jan Karon's books, too.

I'm interested to know what YOU sent!

Lisa,

Thanks for joining us for the swap--enjoy your goodies!

Lisa, I doubt that my box is coming. I got home today and found a box on my porch for someone on another street. The post office contracts out the mail in my neighborhood, and the contractor is pitiful.

Lisa, you'll have to let me know how you liked the ground coffee and the Cafe Mocha.

I am a member of www.gevalia.com, where the ground coffee came from. They have so many types. And, I drink the frozen samples in the summer when it is over 100 degrees F. here.
