Gifts from Bloggers and Friends

Hello to All.
First I want to wish all of you a wonderful and prosperous new year, 2008 has been a wonderful year for my family and I know 2009 will be even better, I never understand why some people get so down when the new year rolls around, For me it is a wonderful new start.
I always have so many new ideals rolling around in my head and can't wait to get them started.
Darrell and I usually plan a home project for the first couple of month and this year is no different, We are planning to paint and redo a couple of bedrooms. Will let you follow along with us.
Have so many wonderful things in the works for the website so be sure you come by and visit.
Also will be opening a shop on Etsy and one on Lollishops and joining the Friday Flea Market sales. Great new beginnings.
This was my first year to blog and to join chat groups on line and I must tell you it has been amazing, I have made many wonderful new virtual friends and love conversing with all of you and taking a little glimpse into each others homes.
The gifts below are from some great friends and fellow bloggers. I love each piece and will enjoy them for years to come.
This first group of goodies came from Melissa in ID. She was my swap partner in the Snowflakes and Sparkles Swap. I love it all. Her blog is melissabuford.typrpad.com

This vision of pink came from Cami in Texas, She was my partner in the Vintage Christmas Swap. Received a beautiful set of pink dinner napkins in this group and in another swap I got a set of napkin rings that match perfectly.

All these goodies, and of course in pink Came from Victoria who was my partner in our Shabby Lane Swap. A wonderful group of sellers. Beautiful and the sachet smells wonderful. A gorgeous addition to my bathroom.


This one Came form Louise in NM. She sent me the wonderful napkin rings. Also in this group I got the most beautiful Christmas Banner and Darrell packed it away in our Christmas decoration before I got a picture, I will treasure it for years to come and think of her each time I get it out.

This group of goodies came from our PRH group. A wonderful group of ladies I have become acquainted with this year and enjoy chatting with. I was even able to meet 2 of them ( Shirl and Jen) who also live in West Virginia. It is great to be able to put a face with someone you have met on line. Steph sent me the beautiful frame and Christmas ornaments, Katie sent me a hand painted book marker that is perfect for my bible, A beautiful pair of earrings from Lorena,
The sweetest little jingle bell rock from Vickie, and a beautiful little Victorian calender from Karen. I sure hope I have not forgotten anyone.
Going to spend the next few days working on the puter and getting my website up dated and new merchandise on.
Again I Hope everyone has a wonderful and prosperous new year.
Hugs,
Judy
