Well, as I mentioned, I have several pictures I want to share. Right before Christmas I found out that I had won the Blog Hop that was sponsored by Carly of Boggy Bottom Bayou. Oh my goodness, I thought..another win. Now I have NEVER considered myself to be a "lucky" person when it comes to the draw...NOT ever....but for some reason the month of Dec. was very good to me. Anywho, as I was saying...here are some pictures of the Christmas goodies that I received from some very talented artists who most of you probably already know by their amzing artistic abilities.
These awesome ornies are made by Carly of BOGGY BOTTOM BAYOU. Each is unique and adds wonderful bling to the tree. When the lights are on they outshine themselves.
And as luck would have it, she reached her new follower goal so I also received this amazing Santa in a wonderful, vintage style quilt jacket. His face is delightful and is definitely in keeping with the unique Boggy Bottom creative style.
I also received this darling reindeer pillow from my very dear friend, Jody of SWEET BEAR CREEK WHIMS. It is just adorable! I am blessed to own several of Jody's creations and I must tell you that her eye for detail and her workmanship are among some of the best I have seen anywhere.
Another box arrived from Lee Ann of CHARMED CONFECTIONS. Now what can I say about Lee Ann's goodes except your mouth will be drooling cause he confections look good enough to eat!! Two of my grandchildren were with me when her box came. They were so taken with her "not so edible" creations that I ended up letting them each take one home for their tree....ha! Now how could any Nana worth her salt ever say "no" to a grand...lol!
Now tell me I am wrong...don't they just look good enough to eat!
I also received this wonderful snowman ornie from Brenda of THE RUSTY THIMBLE. And, by the way, this is her own original design and it is adorable. If you are not familiar with Brenda you are truly missing out. She is continually giving away wonderful handmade goodies on her blog to lucky winners. I am not at all surprised that she also participated in this one. She just has that kind of heart!
And from Mary of THE MARY BELL, I received this adorable teeny knitty bitty knit couture Santa Sweather set to hang on my tree. I am surprised a little elf didn't snatch it up sometime during the night....maybe like one of the "elf on the shelf" guys running around everywhere this Christmas! ha! Mary does a wonderful job of repurposing and reusing lots of goodes in her creative endeavors.
From Nicoletta of NIKY'S CREATIONS I received this wonderful cross-stitch pocket with a tiny reindeer and Christmas tree on the front. Her work is just beautiful! And her blog is dedicated to all things stitched. This little pocket is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Be SURE to visit her blog and be amazed at her beautiful workmanship! You will be drooling for sure!
And last, this little Angel ornie made by Hope of HOPE RYEL HOMEMADE DOLLS. Hope has a wonderful style all her own and is evident in this beautiful doll with the tiny, delicate features. Her use of vintage items is perfect! She will be a cherished heirloom, for sure.
Warmest of hugs to each of you for donating a piece of your artwork to the blog hop. They have a forever home with me!
I hope you will stop by and visit each of these ladies and check out the beautiful goodes they have to offer.
New Year blessings to each of you!
