A Happy New Year And Some Lovely Pretties....
So a very happy new year to you, and Thank You so much for your lovely comments wishing me a happy Christmas and New Year too. I have so enjoyed looking at all your new posts and new pretties and shall be back to say hello.
Gosh I really can't believe how time flies. I have been with Family in Wales for the festivities and enjoyed our time there.
Brrrr it was very cold by the sea air though was very refreshing and uplifting as I was somewhat down on Christmas Day, feeling a little jaded and though very much enjoyed Big Sister and Little Man unwrapping their beautiful presents and toys, wasn't much interested in unwrapping mine. So with a little encouragement from the family I gathered my excitement and the unwrapping commenced.
Little Gems from the SC Cafe, beautifully wrapped swap goodies were looking at me longingly, so they were one of the first I unwrapped. I had already the most gorgeous handmade initials for Miss. and Master Poppins and the beautiful brooch, and was so lucky to be unwrapping more.
Some gorgeous bath salts and hand cream with a pretty emery board
The most gorgeous handmade Babushka Doll. Her face and the detail, so pretty. Now I happen to know thet Gem had no sewing machine when she made my lovely pretties so I am so touched at the work that must have gone into them.
A beautiful, floraly handmade drawstring toiletry bag, shall look lovely hanging on my little rack in the new bathroom.
The most delightful handmade decoupage wooden heart.
And a gorgeous and handmade little hanging bird, so pretty, Thank You so much Gem you talented and wonderful lady, I love your pretties and are all going to be treasured.
It was Tilly Rose up next, and boy what a lovely A Cosy Evening In swap from her. I had unwrapped a beautiful LA mug bowl full of the most yummy chocolates, a gorgeous card and pretty felt heart. And kept more of her goodies beneath the Tree.
Wow, some gorgeous bubbly, beautifully smelling L'Occitane soap, a pretty and floraly vintage makeup case I think that is what it is, it is gorgeous, and some yummy chocolate for Miss. and Master Poppins. Thank You so much what wonderful treats.
Thanks now to the adorable MelMel for her wonderful and very special little presents. A very, very special handmade heart angel in memory of Joshua, what a beautiful and caring thought as Christmas is often a reflective time for me and having someone make something in memory of him has touched me greatly.
A wonderful CK bag, I so agree MelMel, great for thrifting adventures, a beautiful and sparkly hanging heart and some magnificent Hand Made gold leaf soap. Thank You so much what beautiful and thoughtful gifts.
Thank You too to Lesley for the wonderful and so pretty trinket box, it is so pretty and girly and sparkly and not sure if Lesley knew, but I have a certain love of butterflies, so a perfect present for me as it has one on it, and some lovely Ladybird books for Big sister and Little Man, thank you so much Lesley.
Some lovely treats from a new and lovely friend Eddie from the SC Cafe, a gorgeous Rose Teatowel, now she obviously knows what I like because I had bought one for myself, now I have two can make a pretty cushion :), a pretty shabby chic welcome sign, a lovely and pretty little jug and a splendid diary. The lady in question treated all my family to some lovely little Christmas gifts, and we all say many many Thanks to you and we love all our treats.
So would you like to see some more lovely little pretties, oh go on then here you are :)
Some lovely CK goodies from the wonderful, caring, thoughtful, and helpful Darling husband and the children, he saw the CK umbrella for half price on Christmas Eve, what a fine man he is.
He knows I love hearts.
And he knew I had my eye on a couple of LA pretties, brilliant bargains in the sale.
He knows my little feet get cold on these wintry days.
And he knew I thought these books would never be mine.
Thank You so much darling Family for my lovely and thoughtful presents, apologies I was somewhat moody on the Day, though I know you all love me, and you know I love you a million times back and am so grateful for you every day.
So bring on January, is it too early to look forward to spring :)I really don't do January, so please any funny jokes or pick me ups please send them my way :)
