Christmas Gifts

What a very lucky girl, or should i say old woman, i am.

Today i received 3 packages, the first being from my new found friend Orit, from Israel. This was part of the Christmas ATC swap, over in Mamma. Isn't it beautiful, i just love the textural feel and simplicity of this ATC.

Then in the second package, i was delighted to find a bauble from Renee (Nayski) I'm afraid she doesn't have a blog to show you.
She also sent me a christmas pressie which i have not opened, but will show you the package cos i love the ribbon sooo much

The third package was from another newly found friend, Constanza. Oh boy, did this package make me cry, not only because of the beautiful gifts, but because of the words inside the xmas card.

amongst all the beautiful little gifts from Constanza was the absolutely delightful English Cottage. I JUST LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT. love houses, and this is sooooo sweet.
Here is Constanza's etsy shop

Here you can see it on my windowledge in my living room amongst all xmas decorations made by friends, in both the jigsaw jam swaps, and the bauble swaps that i have participated in.

And here are a few more from friends, here on my teeny weenty 3foot high tree. lol.

First from Sherry, which is very sparkly and glamorous in real life.

And two of the parchment gifts from Viv, which are absolutely divine.

Viv, sent me two of these parchment gift boxes, one for myself and also one for my dear hubby. NOW ISN'T THAT THE SWEETEST THING ANYONE COULD DO.
i think so. Even though she takes the micky out of my GINORMOUS xmas tree. hahahaha

You can see better photos of them over on her blog, as well as the intricate workings of them.
