I'm not sure how I got so lucky, but I won a give away by Tammy over at Scattered Seed Samplers. If you've not checked out her blog, it is a must see. She is a talented cross stitch designer and you can join her Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club to receive the most wonderful kits. She has THE MOST AMAZING antique sewing collectibles ~ things I've never seen before. I won this sweet little thread holder and these BEAUTIFUL hand dyed silk threads. THANK YOU Tammy :)
My dear friend Saundra over at Woodland Primitives surprised me with this little angel who is guarding my Christmas cards. She is the sweetest little thing.
Oh, my camera is giving me fits tonight. I am pretty sure it is operator error . . . sigh.
Look at that face. Lousy picture ~ so much prettier in person. I don't think there is anything that Saundra can't do. Thank you, girlfriend :)
From my dearest friend Wink ~ this little green featheredge plate. Soft paste - probably 1780's. What can I say other than WOW! I have many pieces of blue featheredge, but only a few green.
She also gave me a couple celluloid Santas to add to my collection, including this guy in the car.
I am truly blessed to have such wonderful friends :)
My snowman mat is nearing completion. I just have this corner left to hook.
Pug hugs :)
