Hope all of you are having a great week.
Thought I would show you my shelf of my Santa Collection. This year I went a little wild on Etsy. (Whoops)
I have also had some help from Erica at http://goldeneggvintage.blogspot.com/ I was hoping you could see the sweet snowman better in this picture that she sent me. We are doing a trade so she has been sending me the sweetest vintage Christmas decorations.
This is what our mantel looks like this year. The deer is one of the things Erica has sent me. I have been in vintage heaven with all the little do dads to decorate with. Erica holds Market Monday on some Monday's so watch her blog for when they will be.
Here is a glimpse of our Christmas tree. This is a little bird Erica sent me, it clips on. Soo cool. She also has sent me some Christmas ornaments and I was so excited they went on the tree right away. In the background on the far right you can see a sweet little Santa she sent me. Thank you so much you are so sweet Erica. I am loving this trade so much.
Here is more wonderful mail.
This is the third year for me to join Cheryll's Santa Sack Swap. It is so much fun every year. For 2013 Cheryll paired me up with Terry. Yesterday was our opening day and here is what Terry sent me.
Look at all the hand made goodness from Terry. I just love everything. Thank you so much Terry for being a great partner and Cheryll for being an awesome swap momma.
The beautiful stoking and cloths pin bag are from the very talented and sweet Heather from http://vintagegreyhandmade.blogspot.com/ They are both gorgeous. Heather even has a crocheted a hanger for the cloths pin bag. The embroidery is so sweet. I have not had a stocking of my very own since I was little. Not sure what happen to that one. So I was so excited when I unwrapped Heather's gorgeous wrapping to see this beautiful hand made stocking. Thank you so much Heather for all my handmade goodness. Heather's store is full of hand made goodness. You are really missing out if you have not visited her store.
This weekend we are having our family Christmas party. It is always so good to get together with everyone. We just found out yesterday that my niece (that just got home 5 months ago from Afghanistan) and her husband are having a baby girl. I am so thrilled for them. If you know me you know how much I just love babies.
Wishing all of you a Merry Christmas weekend.
