As you know, my husband and I actually bought a new house only recently, so after that, I wasn’t really expecting anything for Christmas lol. However, family and friends thought of me, and I was a lucky girl, with lots of surprise presents to open.
My sister, who knows I’m a “Miranda” fan, sent me this
I’m going to have to wait until my husband goes back to work before I watch it though. He doesn’t mind the occasional episode of “Miranda” but I think it will be asking too much of him to make him sit through her entire one-woman show ^^
Avis, my friend in England, sent me some lovely surprises (sorry about bad photography)
A wooden box in the shape of a cat, which is actually a secret puzzle box, with hidden compartments; a purple long quarter and a hand-stitched keyring with a buzzy bee on one side
and honeycomb on the other side. You can see the cat box, all opened up . . . and inside, were hidden, some red heart buttons and some bobbin & scissor embellishments. Thank you Avis.
From sister & brother-in-law . . . we received some lovely mugs and a watering can candle.
I also received a new cardie . . . which is very warm, and the cats all agree, is very nice to cuddle up with on our new 2-seater couch which we picked up on 26th December, so I suppose that was a Christmas present too ^^
Eldest son and ‘Titia gave me a book from my wish list . . . for someone who collects kokeshi dolls like I do, this is a real treat.
And from my daughter, Lindashee . . .
This is one of her new designs : “Aquarius” (not available on her blog, and just for me lol). And along with the box . . .
lots of crafting goodies.
More surprise mail too, from blogging friends . . .
a gorgeous fabric butterfly from La Pie Kikou as well as some bookmarks.
a 3D card from Stéphanie, and some bookmarks
and a beautiful card from Titane
So lots of wonderful goodies . . . I feel totally spoiled.
