Secret Santa Was Here!
My Secret Santa package was waiting for me when I got home Thursday night, but I restrained myself from opening it until this morning so I could take proper pictures of my goodies. My Secret Santa was none other than Jane herself, the hostess of this exchange. Everything was so nicely wrapped that I had to make sure I wasn't opening anything out of turn; there is something that can't be opened until Dec 24th. After checking all the packages, I dove right in and opened everything except the box in the back with the cute felted flower decoration, that is the one that has to wait. And what wonderful surprises were in those packages!! There were handmade and painted by Jane ornaments and a window decoration (that I am calling a partridge and will hang on my sliding glass door all the time with the included suction cup), some mulling spices, 2 tea light candles in my favorite scent, cinnamon! with glass holders, sticky notes of my initial, Jane's cute felted pin cushion, and the holiday edition of Woman's Day magazine. I've already found some cookie recipes I want to make. The goodies sat on my counter this morning, and one big brown abominable snowman cat decided that felted flower decoration on my not-to-be-opened-until-Dec-24-gift was a toy and in one fell swoop of a paw knocked it off the package and to the floor and started batting and chasing it around the room. We couldn't have that, it's MINE! So, I put it back on the box and tucked it away until Christmas Eve to keep us all from temptation. Jane, thank you so much for everything, I can't wait to open my Dec 24 package!
