About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Stocking Swap

   I received the most gorgeous package this weekend from my dear friend, Heidi.  We were partners in Robin's fabulous Christmas Stocking Swap.  Heidi knows exactly what makes my heart go pitter patter!  When I was done unwrapping the layers of fluffy white tissue paper I found the most beautiful stocking done in colors of cream and white and accented with glitter and a jingle bell!  The stocking is pictured above- so lovely!  Heidi filled my stocking with the most lovely seashells, as she knows that I adore them, that she had made into glittery ornaments for my Christmas tree!  There were also the loveliest buttons and beads in cream and white!  Look at the little church Christmas ornament....  Oh, and do you see the billowy white bows?

   Heidi also tucked in a lovely notepad and the gorgeous tags that I am adding to my collection!  Each gift was created and wrapped with such care and love that I felt like Heidi was right there with me while I unwrapped everything.:)

   And look at this!  Heidi told me it is one of her favorite books and I can see why.  The pictures are amazing!  Such lovely ideas!  Heidi, thank you so much again for this early Christmas present.  I treasure each and every seashell, button and bead, but I treasure your friendship even more.:)

Hi Lori
Your stocking gifts are lovely and wrapped so beautifully. The tags are really special. Heidi has obviously put a lot of time and thought into your swap. The buttons and beads are really you. I am almost done with my swaps. Isn't all this swapping exciting?

Sherry said...

Angela Harris said...

I love that tree tag. I found your blog through Sherry. Nice to meet you. I have to say your title has a special place in my heart. Both flowers are a direct tie to my father for me. His favorite plants in his gardens are his moon flowers and morning glories :)
Come visit me when you can
