RAK, Ornie Swap & My Giveaway

I'm dreaming of a White Christmas.........

The snow is falling softly this sunny Wednesday morn.  It's really quite beautiful as it sparkles in the sunlight.  Beautiful....like so many of my blogging friends.  

The other day I received a small package from my dear friend, Tricia of Hillcrest Home Prims.  Tricia and I had spoken on the phone last week, so I knew a little something was coming my way.  She's such a giving person, and has been going through so much, I can't believe she had the time to remember lil ole me...but I'm so glad and thankful she did.
Here's what Tricia included in my package.
A cute mitten ornie, two little stockings, a Merry Christmas ornie and a delightful stitchery.

I love framed stitcheries and this one is so adorable!
Thank you Tricia!  You're a dear friend.  Hugs

I also wanted to show you the cute ornament I received from Danice.  I had joined her Ornament Swap over at Homespun Hannah's, and she sent me this adorable Snowman ornie.

 I proudly placed it on my tree in the dining room, which I have decorated almost entirely with ornies I have received from my blogging friends!  I'll show pictures of the tree soon.   Danice also included a bag of awesome smelling potpourri.  I'm also finished with Danice's ornie and will get that out in the mail soon.  Be sure to stop by Danice's blog...she is so helpful and giving and you will feel most welcome there!
Thank you Danice!


I just wanted to remind you all that my little
 12 Days of Christmas & Birthday giveaway
 ends late tonight.  Just click on the link below to learn the rules. 

Mr. Whimzie is taking the day off tomorrow to spend my birthday with me!  We are going to head out in the morning to do some antiquing and have a nice lunch together - isn't he a sweetie!  I'm so excited!  Because it looks like I will be busy most of tomorrow, I will announce the winner of my giveaway on Friday rather than Thursday.  Click HERE - BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY to enter!
