The Latest and In The Mail

Good morning to everyone. Are you all busy decorating and shopping? I am, I love this time of year, with all the hustle and bustle. Yesterday I did a little shopping and decorating, and I'm happy to say I'm nearly finished with the decorating, except for the tree. I had hoped to put up our tree this weekend but that has been postponed for a few days. We have an artificial tree and it's stored in the rafters, getting it down is a big job. With out getting too graphic my husband was using a box cutter and had a freaky accident. He nearly cut off the top part of his thumb. Believe me this is a big ouchie. He's feeling better now and goes back to the doctor tomorrow to see how it's healing up. I'm so thankful that it wasn't worse than it is....you just never know what a day holds in store for you. Last week was so busy I didn't get a chance to share the lovely treasures I received in the mail. Let me show you now......

The first package was from my Deck the Halls swap partner Tamsen.
Lily wants to see too. In the box there were two packages all wrapped in pink, with a lovely card. Look at the beautiful hand crochet ornament she made. It is so sweet and very delicate...I love it and it looks perfect on my heart tree. Isn't the vintage Santa precious , he will fit right in on our main tree. Do you see the heart shaped moonstone candy dish? Oh my gosh, I nearly fainted when I opened the package. It is a beautiful piece I will always treasure. Thank you so much Tamsen.
Treasures from Tamsen.
Later the same day the mailman...or should I say mail person brought a second package. Look at the darling glitter signs I ordered from Rosemary. As soon as I saw them on her blog I knew I wanted to order some. They look great with my Christmas things.....pictures will be coming.
Then on Saturday my last package was delivered. I ordered this darling crochet purse from Lallee. It is gorgerous and I'm looking forward to using it. Lallee does such lovely work, visit her Esty shop to see all her pretty things.
In just the few short months I've been blogging I've met the nicest and most talented ladies...these are just three. To all of my blogging friends I just want you to know you are all special and bring me much joy.

Happy days to all.......Linda

Linda, I just received your swap package and love, love, love the wreath and vintage ornaments! The poinsettis hankerchief is so sweet too. I've posted a thank you on my blog along with a photo. You are so eloquent in your postings. They just flow. Have you ever attempted to write a book? You'd be good at it. Take care and thanks for being my first swap partner. Tamsen

You got some great stuff in the mail.

The cut thumb sounds like the things that happen around here. Nail through the hand, board falling from the ceiling and hitting a head, falling off the ladder, so many more...... None of those accidents are mine.
