Christmas in July

Opening day for our Christmas in July swap has finally arrived. I have been looking at some gorgeous looking parcels for several days with a bit of feeling and squishing going on.  I knew from the postmark on the parcel that it was from Western Australia, but you don't always know where your blogging friends live.  So it was with great delight that I discovered Maria was my "secret Santa" from maria-lifeontheblock.blogspot.com. And I was just blown away with the gorgeous things Maria had made for me -
The first parcel I opened was this lovely wallhanging - love it Maria. The cute little brooch in the top right-hand corner was attached to the envelope.
Maria obviously knows how much I love snowmen - he's the cutest on his felt stocking. And there was a parcel inside - a lovely angel ornament.

And how gorgeous is this wool reindeer ornament. He will look very handsome on my tree of handmade ornaments.
And yum - Maria added some yummy choccies and coffee sticks. Maria thankyou for being my secret Santa. Loved all my wonderful xmas gifts and will enjoy adding them to my xmas decorating. Cheryl
