This is a really long post, please do close everything but this window. Go get you a cupa and allow this page to load and try to get to the bottom as I saved the best for last.Ok if not silly (title) then to TEARS! AND totally made my Christmas very special this year. First of all... this is what I got, YEAH FIVE, count em, FIVE boxes. Me and a special friend of mine did this to each other as we wanted Christmas to be really special. She got one box but the box was just too important NOT to send it was BURSTING but it came from Nuts.com which has writing all over their boxes and is just fun. She also got a squishy bag again packed to bursting. SHHH!!! I shouldn't have said that as she doesn't have it yet.
ALL of these boxes were themed! All of the goodies were wrapped the same too which was just lovely. The wraps were either solid silver or silver with white snowflakes. I loved that. Then there were great cards as you can see here, this is a pile of the tags and the hand spun yarn used to hold present together.
This box was called Let It Snow. 2 tea towels with silver snowflakes embroidered onto them. See all those silver snowflakes? Those were all hand crocheted by my Mel for me and will end up on the tree as a special dear ornaments.
She didn't know this but DH calls me Angel, see the cup and saucer on the left? Just below are white chocolate flakes. All the tags and wrap were silver and yarns! There's a candle on the right that smells just heavenly, that silver shawl pins great for shawls or to tame my unruly mass of long curls. Sugar plums from Jelly Belly (DH fell in love!), chocolate covered pretzel sticks with snow flake candy sprinkles. Then see the teal rounder? That's a skein of Kidd Silk Haze! Which has gone the way of the dinosaur so I'm very pleased to have it.
This is Dr. Doolittle and some of it's for our pets! They all love them. The cats REALLY dig the Pounce! I'd forgotten about that stuff. Lil horsey sticker, me LUV's stickers! and the mice... oh man, chocolate covered cherry bodies, jelly bean ears, the tails the cherry stem and the head I think is a malt ball! Clever that!
She even got stuff for my family! Shane and DH got sweat shirts, DS LIVES in them and can't have too many, can you see he's got one under the blue one? They are special as they have Michigan stuff on them which is where my beloved Swappee lives.
DD LOVES her present and rocked it like a baby! It's Unique Sheep gradient EOS yarn! She wouldn't let it out of her sight and smart girl,,, took it to her room immediately so I wouldn't forget and think it's mine! HAHA you'd be surprised what with my short term memory loss and it being in all of my favorite colors!
