spoilt rotten!!

the title says it all and no i am not talking about the kids...this year was MY YEAR (although the children were not neglected). last year we decided it was time to let the girls get in on buying us a gift from them... so glad we did, look what they chose for me!!! yes an add a charm braclet. can you believe that the first charm they chose would be a babushka dolls face?! oh so perfect. guess what i will be getting for the next birthday, valentines day....
then mister moo bought me this
aarrgg this book is amazing!
which means i have not one,
not two,
but all three of the softies books. i must have been a very, very, very good girl this year.
the next photo shows some other things i found under the tree... click on the photo to enlarge it and read the fine print on our movie gift certificate.
i bought the little wooden pencil for myself from lilly cottage when i went out for some last minute gift buying.isnt she sweet!!
mick also gave me these great solar lanterns that change all different colours, so perfect for 'crazy about lanterns' ol me.
but wait there's more!! while i was at our favourite shop in the world ~lilly cottage~, the lovely, the oh so generous and perfect in every way LINDA gave me the most beautiful wreath i have ever seen and hand made snowflakes (made from teeny tiny doilies) for the girls and little hand made puddings. i will post about their presents another day...i hung the wreath on our fire place, it looks so nice with my tiny white and silver 'bird house' church.
there are the snowflakes all glittery and pretty
click on it to make it bigger, it really is pretty.
last of all (i think) poppy jim gave us a bottle of CHIVAS REGAL scotch... mmmmm and an entry into the $30 million lotto draw and with our share of the money from grandpa boris and my uncle and aunty i bought two sets of sheets and these little cuties
their faces need a bit of a clean, but then again so do most little girls faces. :)
there you have it, proof that i was indeed very spoiled this christmas. i have enjoyed reading other blogs and seeing what fancy and fine things were received on christmas morning, the common thread seems to be that the most treasured gift was spending time with our families and friends and that really is what christmas is all about.
enjoy the last few days of 2008. xxgoldsworthy

Hi there, so nice to meet a local blogger and sewer. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I don't sell at markets yet mainly because I don't have time to make enough stock but who knows what 2009 will bring.

You sure did get spoilt for Christmas! So many lovely things, I can't wait to see some of the softies you make from those books. And where did the babushka charm come from? I have a similar charm bracelet and would love to get the babushka for it.

Have a lovely New Years, I'll be back here for more :)
