In my absence of blog land, I have received a couple very fun packages.
The first was from Sue @ It's A Very Cherry World!
In December I participated in her "Shape It Up" Christmas Swap.
We were to make a tag or ornament in the shape of a Christmas symbol.
This is what I received from Sue.
How simply gorgeous is this tag?! I couldn't choose a favorite part of...there are too many cute details. How crafty? :) This will adorn my tree for years to come!
Sue added goodies in my package. Here's a peek!
I LOVE this globe! I have a larger version of this vintage Santa.
Sue sent me so many cute vintage Christmas goodies!
I love the polka dots and gingham on this tin! It came full of Christmas candy corn. (which I devoured in the matter of a couple of days)
Thank you so much Sue! I enjoyed being your partner in your hosted swap!
If you've never visited Sue, you must head over to her lovely blog NOW! Sue hosts REDNESDAY every Wednesday. Surely you've heard of it! ;)
Also in the month of December, Deb @ ZootsuitMama held a giveaway to win a vintage Halloween blow mold! Guess who won? Moi!
I haven't won very many giveaways, or many things in general; so I am always excited for a win!
Deb has the coolest retro decor ever!
Deb's blog was one of the first blogs I ever started following. She is an inspiration for anyone who admires and collects mid-century decor!
Thanks Deb, I can not wait until next year to use my new/vintage Halloween blow mold!
I had to share with y'all one of my favorite Christmas gifts.
My husband's great Aunt is such a sweet woman.
This past spring she started making quilts for everyone in the family.
She must have been a very busy lady because she made several of these quilts. This is the quilt we received for our home.
I didn't get a picture of the inside of this quilt, but it is a fleece material. It is so comfy!
We love it! Thank you Aunt Carolyn!
Happy Thursday and happy thrifting!
