Can you believe I won all of these handmade primitive dolls from Dulaney Woods Treasures? Wonderful blog and beautiful Etsy shop!!

 Beautiful craftsmanship...I just love Santa's face. He is very Special....Look at that sweet reindeer!! Thank you Theresa for the very special package! You are amazing!

 I also received this beautiful necklace  Diane at Lavender Dreams too. I just love her. She was giving away one of Shanti J's beautiful pieces of jewelry. I also recieved several pretty cards and Christmas gift tags from Diane....I have used them all. They were so sweet:

Thanks Diane!!

I also had a lot of fun with Heatherly Loves' fun Christmas Mug Swap!

April from April's Country Life Completely spoiled me...

She went far above "Mug" swap. She included the sweetest card with all my treasures that read:

The Santa to grace your tree and another little book for your collection, a little batch of cookies for a sweet little treat and a red towel to clean up after baking.
