Santa's List

The mail carrier has been bringing me boxes from two dear blogging friends that had drawings recently. And will be stopping AGAIN with another box!
Yes, you counted correctly...
THREE times a winner!
Me!!
This folded fabric ornament was lovingly made by Donna from Sugar, Spice, and Southern Life. Her handiwork is absolutely exquisite! She told me there are a lot of pins, but I couldn't see any pin heads as they are cleverly hidden. Perfect points--I know it's difficult to see since I seem to still be on the "outs" with my phone/camera/pictures. Donna has so many great projects that she shares on her blog. Click on her name and be inspired! Thank you, dear friend.
The second box to arrive held this gorgeous handmade silk posie from Dana in Georgia. If you go visit Lambs and Ivy Designs you will be drooling... . I've been so blessed by both bloggers! I love it!! Thank you!
And Anne tells me her husband drew my name out of the hat for her blog anniversary post at her Phamily Blog. So you know there will be something else arriving soon!

It's been quite a week because my Secret Santa box also arrived. Will devote a separate post just for the party! Have a good week.

And a special note for Remington...I listened to the last 13 seconds of the big game and I know how disappointed you are.♥♫

Hello Marilyn, It's been such a long time since I stopped by your blogspot. Please forgive me, I am still on your followers list, but I was having a lot of problems with blogger for a while there. I almost gave up. So glad I didn't.

Well my dear friend, I hope you are keeping healthy and that life is been good to you.

I love the goodies you received in the mail! Very talented ladies!

I also love the vintage pictures! I seem to be falling in love more and more with vintage things lately.

Have a wonderful week Marilyn. All God's Best, Kerrie

Hi Marilyn, this is my first time to your blog. I found you after seeing a comment that you left on another blog about having gingerbread kids out all year. Well, you are just the lady I want to invite to share them on my Gingerbread Party. It goes until Dec 12th. If you are interested see details on my blog. Would love to see your gingerbread items.

You must be a lucky lady to win such nice gifts from lovely bloggers. I haven't been that lucky, yet. Maybe soon.
