Another visit from Santa!


And what a surprise visit from Santa it was! I received this amazing parcel from Tessa today! I think she adopted me this year. She spoiled me rotten. I sent her some special skin creme at some point this year - something she cannot get easily in Australia. It was my pleasure to send it, no big deal at all... and look what she decided to do for me! She stitched this pretty fob for me... sent me Scissoroos for it (I have been coveting these special kangaroo scissors for months now, and I cannot even begin to imagine that I own them now!), a chart that is so perfect for me, the cutest buttons, a satchel bag that rolls up easily, and holiday tissues! My gosh - see, she spoiled me rotten. Thank you so much Tessa. Honestly, it is hard to find just the right words to thank you for this extreme generosity. {{{HUGS}}} And, I received this amazing tatted Christmas ornament in a Christmas card from Cathy - she says her mother tatted this. It is starched and is so perfect. Looks awesome on my Christmas shrub, and I am so honored to receive this from Cathy (and her mum). Thank you both so much.

I am utterly humbled today by the generosity of my friends. I didn't even manage to get Christmas cards out this year (except to DH's family).... I feel so ashamed. But am glad I have my plan in place to spoil so many of you next Christmas ;-) I was thrilled to hear that others of you have similar plans. Very cool!
