Christmas is Coming

Anyone would think that Christmas is coming with some lovely parcels being delivered to my door -
This gorgeous decoration is from Marina. I had been admiring them over on her blog so was thrilled when one of them was delivered to me. My favourite tree is the one I have with my lovely handmade decorations on it - most from friends.  So this will be a wonderful addition, thankyou so much Marina.

This gorgeous one is also being added to my tree. As well as snowmen, I love gingerbread men, so was thrilled when this gorgeous one arrived from another special friend, Michelle -

Isn't he gorgeous?  Thankyou so much to two lovely friends.

And talking of friends Barb and I have done a one on one Christmas swap for the last 2 or 3 years and this year was no exception. My wonderful parcel arrived last week, and I did for one minute think about leaving it until Christmas day to open, but Barb always puts together the most amazing parcel for me and I really wanted to enjoy it over the days leading up to Christmas -
Barb knows how much I love snowmen - how spoilt am I?  Isn't this cushion just gorgeous. Just love it Barb, so thankyou so very much. Think it will be staying out all year. But there was more -
Loved this most gorgeous bag as well - gorgeous colors and gorgeous stitchery in such a pretty variegated thread.
And lots of lovely goodies inside - some beautiful soap, sewing accessories and a very cute snowman hanger - have got just the project to use this for. Also some yummy shortbreads.
And Barb and I both love beautiful tins and boxes - I have a lovely collection from Barb, and this one is no exception.  Filled with yummy lollies and chocolates. Notice I havn't showed you a photo of the contents on the grounds it may incriminate me lol.  Barb I love my gorgeous gifts - thankyou so much for spoiling me as always.
 
I have more lovely gifts to show you. My wonderful gifts from Kerrie, my partner in Mrs Martin's "My House, My Home" swap arrived today. And yesterday we were able to start opening our gifts in our FHFS. One every day leading up til Christmas - how lovely is that. Cheryl
