Don't you just love the look of new fallen snow!  I thought I would share this picture of our backyard.  We have been under a winter weather advisory since yesterday evening.  Luckily we were not hit as hard as other areas near Lake Michigan and further East towards New York.  I don't mind saying that I will be hibernating for a while...heehee!

I also wanted to share some pictures of a swap that THERESA from DULANEY WOODS TREASURES and I did.  We both mailed our boxes this week but she won't get hers until tomorrow.  I am doing the happy dance and you will see why when you see the pics!  I opened up the box and this is what I found.......

Oh my gosh....I was like a kid at Christmas, tearing into each beautifully wrapped package.

Theresa made the Santa ornie from  pattern by "With Thy Needle and Thread."  It is done in punch needle fashion and she has it wrapped so special in a cellophane bag with  festive Christmas top.  This will have a special place on my new Santa Tree that I did this past Christmas.

Theresa made this adorable little reindeer using a TFC Folkart pattern.

I love pinkeeps and Theresa did this one in a beautiful blue and the pattern is from "The Primitive Hare."

Isn't this little pumpkin girl just adorable!  I am in love with her.  Theresa made her using a pattern by TFC Folkart.  Her stem is actually from one of Theresa's pumpkins that she picked last fall.

Oh yes.....did I tell you this was a picture heavy post...heehee!  There is more.....

Theresa sent me two great patterns (which by the way, I didn't already have in my stash.)  One is a Christmas pattern by Sweet Meadows Farm and a witchy pattern by Soft in the Head.  AND a sweet prim notepad.  LOVE those notepads.


this wonderful Noblewoman's pouch that she made from a "Threadwork Primitive" pattern.  This is a new prim goodie for me and I am in  L-O-V-E!!!  It is just beautiful with all the delicate cross stitching on the front.

Theresa made this WONDERFUL halloween pillow using a pattern by "Buttermilk Basin."  My picture just does not do it justice.  I wish you could see all the border fabrics and the detail to this stitchery.  It is really amazing.

AND LAST..........

this amazing black Santa and his little reindeer made using a TFC Folkart pattern.  Theresa knows that I just LOVE black Santas and this one is sooooo special!  I can't say enough about the detail and beautiful workmanship that Theresa puts into each one of her creations.

Each one of my packages was wrapped with one of these cute halloween ornies made from yummy smelling cinnamon!  (I think it is time to do a Halloween tree this year...ha!)

SO...grab yourself another cup of your favorite beverage and hop on over to Theresa's blog and make sure to get yourself signed up for her ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY CELEBRATION.  It will be ending on Feb. 17th so don't miss out.  And you will also want to check out all her prim goodes she is offering in her Etsy store, DULANEY WOODS TREASURE.  You won't be sorry!  Theresa's work is exquisite!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT weekend!!!
