Hi there, can't believe its been almost two weeks since my last post, I guess time kinda runs away
from you at this time of year!!!!!
I received my lovely Christmas decoration swap pressies last week, i was trying
to hold off until mine had reached its destination but i was a bit slow on having it ready, so here goes mine!!
My swap partner is a sweet lady from Wales called Julie, if you're not familiar with her blog, do go check it out, i promise you'll absolutely love it.........A Tale From a Toadstool House.
Sooo here's what i received, goosebumps while opening up the parcel.........
Beautiful Christmassy wrapping, just the way i love it, thank you Julie for the extra effort in the pretty packaging, its real special :D
Such an array of beautiful gifts, every new unwrapping was just way too nice......
I received a sweet lavender heart in festive colors, its now in a place of prominance in my living room...show you in a sec........
Really pretty bracelet in one of my fav colors... lavender :D
A cupcake diary that Ella has been begging for since she saw it (no way, i draw the line), the cutest Cath Kidson needle book & a seasonal cross stitch which i'm si thrilled with as i've been stitching a wee bit of late.
Also two Yankee candles in my all time fav scents (thank you, thank you, thank you xxxx)
Cute crochet tree decoration, beautiful, & the main attraction the sweetest patchwork tree ever....its got lil bells on it, so every time i open my hall door they tinkle tee hee, i love it!!!
Julie also include this lil merry christmas sign, ain't it adorable & an advent card which by the way Julie i look forward to opening each day, every wee flap has a scripture behind it, a true blessing Xxxx
By the way before i forget there was a bar of chocolate also, but i ate that while opening
the other gifts.....I know no self control heh heh!!!
The heart on my living room table, its just my kinda thing, looks real nice with the stitched picture.
Julie i'm so happy with my lovely gifts, you're the best Xx
This week i've started my decorating, at last......
This is as far as it goes so far.....what do you think of my sugar bowl & milk jug... cute eh!!!
Bargain at three euro, had to have them!!!!
A bargain Christmas plate & one of a few cushions that are coming from my sewing machine on the run up to the big day....lots more to come this week...when i'm finished painting my doors!!
Tree will go up within the next few days in between cookie baking....
She's a great cookie baker, specially in her new apron... which by the way i have to reproduce for her fav doll...matching mommy makes!!!
Now i'm absolutely dying for another cookie with some hot choc, so i'll bid you Adieau!!! (is that the correct spelling?)
