Will sand get through customs, Horace? I've just packed your parcel, and I do have a teeny, weeny handful of sand, all heat-treated to ensure no nasty microbes spread across the planet, but I am reminded that whenever we post overseas we must fill in a Customs declaration. That form doesn't specifically mention soil or sand, whereas they do mention animal and plant matter, but soil is Australia's number 1 bugbear... Do you think your parcel will get safely to you??? I hope so!! PS I live on clay, which is wet, hard, unfriable, so my sand is from a pile of local sand that has been delivered for building projects. It still comes from close-by, but not 'here' exactly!! I hope that still serves... If I had more time I could do the 2 hour each-way trip to collect some from my favourite sacred space by the coast, but I don't have 4 hours up my sleeve...Horace said:Hi Witchy Woman... welcome home. Hope you had a good time with your sister and family. Did you get into trouble? lol
and linnie, let em come. Send your package if you're ready.
I figure it's 2 weeks from the states to Australia for the small priority boxes and about 30 days for regular snail mail. So by sending now, your gift will come amidst the others. I'm so excited!
Please don't forget to include sand, you guys.! I collect sand from all over the world. It goes into a school globe to remind me how we really are all in this together. Just a handful in a baggie from your yard is fine. You'll earn a pin on my world map..
I'm mailing by Wednesday. Will pop back in before then.
