Good evening ladies. Have you all been as busy as I have getting ready for Christmas...making those handmades for family and friends? So much fun and satisfaction giving the handmade gift. What a wonderful way to say "love."
I am popping in tonight to share some wonderful gifts I have received this week from some of our blogging friends who offered some great holiday giveaways. It has been so much fun getting these prezzies in the mail and having some new, awesome prim decorations to display this season.
We all know and love Brenda of THE RUSTY THIMBLE and here is a darling snowman that I received from one of her giveaways. Brenda is generous to a fault and always doing something sweet for others. This little guy is just amazing.
I also received this beautiful little tree skirt made by the very talented Becky of PRIMITIVES N STITCHIN. She made it from an old cutter quilt and I feel very blessed to receive it. It was perfect for a small 2' tree that I added to our decorations this year here on the farm. The skirt has that wonderful handstitched look and feel.
Yesterday the mailman brought me a package that contained a wonderful breadboard handpainted by Willa of THE OLD CUPBOARD DOOR. If you have not had the pleasure of seeing some of Willa's work you are really missing out. I am an avid collector of snowmen and this board is perfect.
And last, I joined in on a giveaway sponsored by BLESSING HILL PRIMITIVES on her facebook page and was blessed to win a wonderful prim Santa made by the talented Beth Thompson. The Santa is the large one on the shelf with the white jacket holding the cutest holiday tree.
I thank you so very much ladies! I feel so blessed to own a piece of your beautiful handiwork.
I hope if you have time during the busy holiday season you will stop by these very talented ladies blogs and check them out.
On another note, here is a pic of what I have been up to for several weeks.... working on some Christmas stockings for my new son-in-law and granddaughters. It has become a family tradition and now all of our children and grandchildren have stockings of their own.
And last, here is a sneak peek at what I am working on now. I am making these for my daughter, sister and daughter-in-laws for Christmas. I have a few more to go before I will be finished.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out the going-ons here at the farm. I would love to hear what you have been up to and what family traditions you share.
warmest holiday hugs!
