Is it December 25th already?

My mailman was LOVIN' me today!

And this is it! There are no more prizes coming, I promise and I have STOPPED entering all the giveaways. Well . . . there was one I did - I had too! It was too awesome not to. Come on!!

So here is what my wonderful and kind mailman brought to my home today!
Make sure you click on the pictures to enlarge. You'll want to see all the details in some of these shots.

First is from Mrs. Dunbar from Lady Dunbar Living Intentionally. She is so sweet.

How CUTE is this card? And appropriate because . . .

Inside was this!!! WHOOO HOO!!!!!!!

Just tell me who can't use a Home Depot gift card!!!
(Sorry Mark, I am SOOOO  not sharing this with you . . . ) :)

Thank you Mrs. Dunbar!!!!!

Next was this . . . from Marietta at Sweet Old Vintage.

These are "Ladies of the Past" 1800s.
They are Victorian Paper Doll Ornaments!!
And they came in a cute pocket page fashioned
from an antique Sears & Roebuck catalogue.

There are five beautiful women!

Each decked out in her gorgeous dress and special
little baubles made from vintage jewelry and buttons.

I love this era. I could've SOOO lived then.
Well . . . except for the tiny waist . . .

What a darling presentation.

Thank you Marietta. I will post them when they are on my tree!!!

And lastly - Sweet Jenn from Sweet Eye Candy Creations whom I had the pleasure of meeting at the last Artistic Affaire I attended. And I also have signed up to attend Jenn's special weekend "Parasols and Petticoats Plantation Art Event" in Savannah GA next April!! I cannot wait. (She even promised a ghost tour!!!)
 Pink! Isn't this too cute?

Just too fun!!!

Jenn's home was featured in the Fall/WInter 2009 Romantic Country Magazine.

Look how cute she is. Awwwww - she even signed it for me!

Yup, there's more!

If you haven't visited Jenn's Etsy Shop - you are missing out!!
Meet Miss Rosey!- Little Miss Rosebud 2009 (eyes shut . . . )

Eyes open. (and they follow you side-to-side too!
I kid you not. Kinda freaked me out!)
She's just a sassy little thing!

She is just too stinkin' cute!!
I have the perfect place for her in my studio!!

Thank you Jenn. Love it all!!

Well, that's it (sniff) LOL! Thank you for being patient and letting me share all of my wonderful, wonderful gifts with you. This has just been so fun!!

Everyone have a great weekend!!

Girl, you are so CRAZY! haha
I love all of your fun is the Home Depot card? too cool!
Will you have to go to therapy? You see, I was thinking...
You may consider making an appointment with a therapist just in case.
You may have PDS...
(package delivery syndrome)
and those withdrawals from the mailman may become really bad!
It's just a suggestion sweetie~
everything vintage

First of all girl...let's get THIS out of the way! When you come to Savannah.....I'm comin to see you! Sure enough..I'm like 4 hours from Savannah and totally love it. So, let's coordinate, at least so I can see you one of the days you are there! Thanks for stopping by to welcome me back! I have MISSED all my friends so much. Finished Tyler's quilt at 2:30am and even made him a custom pillowcase to match it, just didn't quilt it. His birthday is today...but his party is tomorrow. Can't wait to get a picture of him with it wrapped all around him. It turned out better than I had hoped. I tend to create my own patterns. I feel too stifled working from them. So...I'll post a completed pic soon. Hugs! ~CC Catherine
