I am so thankful for some of the wonderful people I have met since I began blogging back in March. I have formed some great friendships that are very special to me. I would like to share some of the gifts my thoughtful friends have sent my way this season and also add a few more pictures of some of my favorite Christmas things I display during the holiday.

My dear friend Kim, from Old Road Primitives made the star with the christmas greens and cute santa mouse. She also sent me the make-do snowman nodder (made by Sweet Bear Creek Whims) and the beautiful dishtowel, potholder and dish cloth (which I already used before I took pictures.....BWAAAAAA!) for my new kitchen. Thank you soooo much Kim, I really love everything!!

These sweet ornaments were handmade by Joyce, a special friend from The Bears Blog
Thanks so much Joyce. I have already added them to my tree and they are adorable!!

And from my sweet friend, Celia of Honey Bear Candles and Crafts. She sent me lots of yummy smelling goodies that she makes and sells out of her online shop. You can check out her shop by clicking HERE She sent my favorite cinnabun melts cinnabun oil and room spray as well as pumpkin spice oil and room spray and also some orange clove sliceable melts. She also sent me a night light tart warmer (I am sorry that I don't have a pic of it.) and it is great!! My entire house smells wonderful and I thank you Celia for your generous gift. You really need to check out all the great items that Celia carries in her shop. You won't be disappointed. Her scents are divine!

This is one of my newest Christmas "goodies" that I acquired from Jody of Sweet Bear Creek Whims. She does beautiful work and you can see some of her items by clicking HERE

As you have probably figured out by now, I have this thing for snowmen. This is another one that I just couldn't do without. This cute little guy was purchased from the The Old Cupboard Door. To visit her etsy shop, click HERE

I love these little guys. They are just prim perfect! They were made by Tammy of Rock River Stitches

This is my favorite part of our main bathroom. The sink is made using an
antique oak dresser. I love decorating it for the holidays.

These last few pictures of a few more of my favorite snowmen.

I acquired the three snowmen in the vintage quilted stocking last year from Ahlcoopedup and it is still one of my favorite things!

Well, if you made it this far then maybe I didn't put you to sleep with boredom.....BWAAAAAAAAAA! Thanks so much for taking the time to share some of my special holiday pics! Merry Christmas to you and your families!!!

holiday hugs!
