But having always loved opening a surprise, I threw caution to the wind only to find a vintage-paper wrapped parcel inside -- no markings, no note. Hmmm, someone was up to something and the Sioux City address was starting to sink in. Why if it wasn't a package from that clever Sonya over at Dime Store Thrift ....yep, the one who tricked me into giving her my pineapple upside-down cake recipe a while back. Just look at what what she sent me!
Dear Rich Maid,
Thank you for my relish fork AND petite tongs. I will be easily picking up my olives, onions, pickles, cherries, ice cubes, relishes, anchovies and canapes thanks to this 49-cent combo offer! I have always hated sticking my fingers into a jar to fish out a slippery olive resulting in a spurt of expletives when the pimento wriggles free. I'll spear those olives with my relish fork and then nab those pesky pimentos swimming out of my reach with those oh-so-petite tongs!
