Wonderful surprises in the mail!!

Believe it or not, the post office has been my favorite place lately. LOL. Seriously!
First off, I won one of Sandy's giveaways on her blog~ The Olde Country Cupboard and was lucky enough to get this wonderful black doll! I just LOVE her and my picture does not do her justice- she is so prim in person and fits in great with everything else! She is my first black doll and I just love her to pieces!!
Sandy also threw in 6 packages of her soy wax tarts. (there are only 5 pictured cuz I already had some in my warmer...hee hee...) I could smell them even before I got the box open and they are wonderful. Thank you so much Sandy for having such a great giveaway and being soooo generous with your goodies!! :0)
I participated in all the ornie swaps we had in my ebay groups. The first was our PLOA ornie swap and I was the lucky recipient of one of Chris's (theantiquepallet) painted books! It is sooo gorgeous! I have it on top if my pie safe and it may stay there for a while! :0) You can't really see in the pic, but glass glitter is all over the front and it has the most beautiful sparkle. Thank you Chris! I treasure all the wonderful things you've made me!
Next was our PFATT swap. Aren't these ornies beautiful? The cross-stitch Santa is from Kathy~Kathy's Prims, the Green Cone ornie is from Nancy~Nancy Malay, The Angel painting is from Karen~Lovella Ranch, and the little matchbox ornie is from Zinnia~Zinnia's Art. I put them on my 4 foot tree I have specifically for my swap ornies and they look great with all the others from swaps past....
I did also get my ornies from my TLOFA swap, but we have to wait for everyone to get their box before we post pics so we don't ruin the surprise. We make an ornie for each person in the swap, then when we get our box back, we get an ornie from each person, too. It was a great turnout and I got some really wonderful ornies! Hopefully in the next few days I can share some more pics with you. :0) I might also have a few more Christmas pics, too.
