What I Don't Want to Put Away!

I got the above piece from Nathalie this past week!
The girl knows exactly what I like!
Buttons, birds, stitching as in thread and lace, etc.
And... house shapes!
The sweet little cup that says Mother on it has a little nest with an egg in it!
Obviously this can stay out year round!
Sorry...I could've done a better photo,
but I'm trying to get my blog updated
before Margaret in Switzerland gets her's done.
Speaking of MARGARET..... she sent me some goodies, too.... below is a little piece she made...

It's so sweet in person.... must hurry...

These little women were complaining that they had not been shown on my blog

this Christmas! So here ya go! I love them and hate putting them away....

Behind them you can see some paper houses friends sent me last year. None of them sent me paper houses this year. Why is that? Well, I guess Nathalie will say it's because she sent me a wooden house shape this year?

Below are some wonderful, special things from Anthropologie that my kids gave me...
The bird behind the bunny is actually from Crate & Barrel... but we love him, too!
Each year Anthropologie
has some wonderful
wrapping accessory...
below is this year's...
we could make these!
They are all sitting on a little tree quilt I made MANY years ago!
I should show you all those .... maybe next year!
Okay...gotta publish, I think Margaret is still working...

Whew! I am EXHAUSTED from your rushing to post before Margaret! Is there a prize for the one who posts first? ;)

I purposely didn't glue in the thread so you COULD use it if you needed that shade of pink. :)

I love Margaret's ornament. Glad I got one too!
