Ho Ho Ho

I could almost hear that jolly old elf when I picked a box up from the post office – with this return address:004


Inside was a veritable treasure trove, from my Secret Santa.  I took pictures of the inside of the box, the gifts still wrapped, the gifts all unwrapped and on display – then hit the wrong button on the camera and erased them all.    So when I discovered that this afternoon, I went back and took some more pictures.    I’m sorry I can’t share the opening of the box with you all, each gift was wrapped individually, and so pretty!

Regardless, here’s what Secret Santa sent to me:

Push pins with button heads, Werther’s candies (we’ve managed to eat a few already), some lovely fat quarters just waiting for that perfect project, a small box of chocolates which I did share with Grizz, and even a treat for our Sadie – which was wrapped in ‘doggie’ paper too.


But look what they’re all sitting on:


Isn’t this just a gorgeous table topper – I’m thrilled, and the color is just perfect for the dining room and will be taking pride of place right away.  Even the back is beautiful!



Thank you thank you Secret Santa – I can’t wait to discover your true identity so I can send a proper note.

And Suzanne – thank you so much for organizing this for us all – it was so much fun, and I’m so happy I decided to join in!

Happy early Christmas!                   Blessings, Peg
