WISHING YOU AND YOURS A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

This is going to be my last post until after New Years so that I can spend all of my time with family and friends. But before I go, I wanted to do one last picture post of some wonderful goodies that I received from my friend Mary of Marmmies Mammy's on Wednesday....WOW...a huge box of goodies, to be more specific....

This pic is of some adorable (and great smelling) gingers that Mary made for me. I LOVE them!! I decided to display them in an old colander with my ginger candle and some wonderful fixins that Mary also sent to me that were made by Traci of York Mountain Primitives. There is an assortment of little goodies in the fixins but I especially love the little wax gingers. The fixins smell divine!! Thanks for giving me the idea of how to use the fixins and gingers, Mary. I love the way it turned out :-)


And, as if that wasn't enough, Mary's generosity continues with this adorable Santa that has definitely won my heart. Mary is a very talented prim artist with a real keen eye for detail! My picture does not do him justice, but check this out....


She also sent me a tin of these delicious Chocolate Cherry cookies that she baked. The tin was full....heehee....that is before Mr. Wonderful spied them. Needless to say, he loves them and so do I...heehee!


Is that all, you ask? No...Mary's generous nature continues.....

I bought a faux feather tree this fall at Hobby Lobby with every intention of making some wool penny ornies for it but ran out of time before the holiday. What else is new, right? Well, Mary knew my intentions and sent me this BEAUTIFUL bundle of hand dyed wool from Margie of Hungry Hook Primitives. For once, I am glad that I am lagging behind...this wool will make some beautiful ornies, don't you think?


And last, Mary sent me this Paula Dean recipe journal that is just awesome! Now I love Paula Dean but won't confess to being in her league when it comes to cooking but now I have a great place to keep some of my cooking stories and favorite recipes.


Thank you so much, Mary, for your very generous gifting. I truly love all of the wonderful gifts you sent. The one I value the most...our special friendship.

And thank you to all of my customers and friends I have made since I started blogging in March of this year. Each one of you are very special to me and I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

hugs!
Carol
