Did you have a nice Christmas? I sure did! It goes by so quickly, after so much preparation, doesn't it? Now all that's left is the putting away of Christmas! I thought I'd share a few of the goodies that I received.
First we have a little cake saver. I love the tulips on the lid. Definitely makes me want to bake a little cake!
Several blogs shared this print this summer, and ever since I first saw one, I knew that Old Glory Cottage needed one! It is a print of a painting done by Fred Tripp, in 1940, at the age of 71, while in a hospital. Mr. Tripp never had a painting lesson, but created a masterpiece. I absolutely love it!
My wonderful and talented sister Mary created this quilt/table runner for me! After a few not-so-subtle hints, she made me one just like hers! You probably can't tell by the picture, but it's about 5' long.
Mary also made me this counted cross stitch sampler. She does alot of cross stitching, and I don't know how she has the patience for it. I know I sure don't!
Another picnic basket, for more storage. Yay!
I can't wait to dive into this book. Have you ever checked out the books at Amazon.com? If you haven't, you really should. This is a used book, in perfect condition, and it was only 27 cents. That's right, 27 cents!! I Love Amazon!
And last but not least, a fireplace! When we were house hunting 15 years ago, one of the things at the top of my must-have list was a fireplace. Alas, I fell in love with this house even though it doesn't have one. It's a faux flame, but it looks pretty real to me! And it's the perfect size for our cozy little home. Now we have a place for our stockings to hang. It's such a shame that I had to hang stockings from Dollar Tree on there, because I couldn't find the ones that I made. Perhaps I'll find them when I put all of the Christmas stuff away! So....what did YOU get for Christmas?!
