8 days 'til Christmas

I love unexpected gifts.

So I was absolutely delighted that Linda Hubbard sent me one of her favorite children's books where creativity saves the day...


And she included this handmade santa ornament...


He's a real treasure and went right onto the tree.


She sent me a "thank you" that included all of these lovelies...


Both gifts really touched me and picked me up just when I needed it.

Here's to unexpected gifts -- may we give them and get them --

And here's to the lovely women who unexpectedly brightened my day.

Do I see lots of aqua in those treasures? What fun you'll have with them. I love the angel in the background; is it metal?

You lucky lady - your friend obviously knows your tastes *grin*
