A weekend of Spoiling

After our wonderful weekend last weekend , my spoiling continued.  Shez and I enjoy many fun days out and about. We always have the best time and have become very firm friends. On our return from our weekend she presented with this most wonderful Christmas parcel -
How gorgeous are these snowman baubles (no Michelle you can't have them lol) and the cutest gingie salt and pepper shakers.  Shez knows me too well. I just love them
But if you thought that was wonderful there was more. Shez knew that I love Jim Shore's beautiful Christmas pieces and this was what she bought for me when she and Cheryll were checking out the Christmas shop in Maldon. Isn't it just exquisite, and I'm sorry I've chopped her head off but the other photo was too far away and you just had to see the beautiful detail.  Shez it is just beautiful - I can't stop looking and admiring. I just love it and will treasure it always - thankyou so much dear friend.
She also gave us some of her  beautiful relish and jam - note those gorgeous personalised labels.
Had you all been admiring this beautiful hamper over on Shez's blog? So had I - never dreaming it was for us.  So many yummy things inside, not to mention the beautiful basket. Mick's been sampling Shez (and me too lol). I've had to put the choc  mint sticks and mini plum puddings away for Christmas day.  I cannot thankyou enough for the most gorgeous gifts Shez. You've spoilt me way too much.
And this beautifully wrapped gift arrived from Lyn all the way from New Zealand. Lyn (www.stitchesfromthemainland.blogspot.com) was my secret partner in Chooky's Secret Santa swap. I was allowed to open the decoration - how beautiful is this pieced star decoration. Such small pieces and so beautifully pieced. I have my main parcel under the tree for opening Christmas Day. Thankyou so very much Lyn - I just love my beautiful decoration.
Woo hoo - this gorgeous little Santa's helper is flying in on Tuesday (with DD2 of course) for a week's visit. She informs me tonight that as he is crawling and pulling himself up on everything that anything low and within reach, including the Christmas tree, will have to be put away for the week.  Well that's 95% of my loungeroom. My granddaughters have always loved my xmas displays and I have never needed to put things up and away with them, Well little man we are going to have to have some serious discussions lol. Cheryl

What delightful gifts. You are lucky to have such a wonderful friendship.
Have fun when the little one comes to stay. Have you thought of using an old playpen around the tree to to keep it out of reach of little hands?
Good luck.
