Pay It Forward!

Last Thursday night, I was SO so happy to see a package from Scotland waiting for me when I came home from work. It was a Pay It Forward gift from Mangocheeks of Allotment 2 Kitchen, one of my most favorite blogger friends who has been sharing such amazing vegetarian recipes which most of veggies come right from her very own garden!



Thank you SO very much, Mangocheeks! It was very kind of you, I'm really really grateful for all the lovely gifts you sent me!










Mangocheeks sent me a beautiful Scottish Stirring Utensil made of beechwood and not one but two lovely tea towels made of 100% cotton for my kitchen. The first one has Scotland map and the second one has traditional Scottish Recipes on it. How wonderful! I loved my gifts so much and so did my family, we will enjoy them forever!


As told by Mangocheeks, "Pay It Forward" was started by fellow bloggers in the U.S.A. The idea is to send the lucky recipient something local. The recipient then has to Pay a gift as well.


Now it's my turn to pay it forward. Please leave a comment on this post and say "I'm in", if you'd like to receive a package from Redondo Beach, California. I will come up with a way to choose the recipient on Sunday, March 28, 2010.


Let's have fun!

    I am so pleased that you liked your Scottish gifts. I would have so much loved to have send you something edible from my garden, but was nervous at customs.

  21. Those are such sweet gifts. What a neat idea to give something local, rather than a foodie treat. I'm traveling for the next year but would love to participate and send a gift from a random location. I'm in!
