Blog Anniversary and Special Gifts

It is my blogging anniversary.  I can’t believe I have been sharing my interests with you all for a whole year.  I have learned so many things along the way and want to thank all of your for taking the time to read my blog and leave so many wonderfully kind comments.
You are all so appreciated!!!
Now on to the splendid Christmas gifts that were sent my way this year from some very special blog friends.
1st Conni @ My Personal Reflections has been a terrific friend, we chat often not only about blogging but our personal lives and have decided we need to live closer so we could be great shopping buddies.
Look at all the wonderful hand made items she sent me. Everything is embellished with a soft buttery yellow and robins egg blue.
  • A yellow scarf that will look great with several of my outfits.
  • A cup cozy for when my drink is smokin’ hot.
  • A calendar and note pad for my purse.
  • A handy dandy grocery list note pad to hang on my refrigerator.
2nd Char @ Grace & Favor
has also been a special friend we have had several email chats and discovered we live close by one another, we both have a love for flea marketing and have become great friends and need to get together some day.

Char sent me this beautiful burlap Wisteria tote bag and the cutest hand written card.  See the vintage key hanging from the handle, isn’t it just darling?
I plan on making an insert for it to hold all my camera bodies and lenses.

and 3rd Carol @ An Oasis in the Desert was the winner of my snowflake giveaway and sent me this:

hand make thank you/Christmas card.  The scroll work on the white circle says “Joy” all the way around it.  Isn’t her work just fabulous?

Thank you to everyone for making my year of blogging special!!!
A special thank you for the Christmas gifts sent my way.

Merry Christmas
