A Lovely Gift Idea

Happy Monday everyone!

We had our Christmas Banquet last week for our bible study group and our wonderful group presented Hubby and me with a lovely basket of goodies.

I wish I could have taken a picture of it before it was opened because it was wrapped so beautifully but they insisted on our opening it that evening.

The festive basket held a tube of my hubby's favourite chips which are conspicuously missing from the basket because he ate them already! My favourite Lindor chocolates were in it as well as a gift card to one of our nicer restaurants in Charlottetown.

There were bottles of home made mustard pickles, Lady Ross mustard pickles, apple sauce, and a large bottle of Strawberry-Apple sauce. All of these were made by a lady in our group.

There was a box of crackers and an assortment of Gourmet coffees. A boxed set of Hot Pepper Jelly and Wild Blueberry Lemon Spreadable fruit from our own Prince Edward Island Preserve Co. was also in the basket.

I was delighted to receive this because I do entertain quite a bit and these items will all come in handy. We are blessed to lead this lovely group of friends.

I also wanted to share with you a little ceramic village I have set up in the bathroom. It lights up and looks very cute in there.
I like little surprises in unexpected places, don't you?

Well, till next time, take some time for yourself with a nice cup of tea and enjoy the Season. I host a tea party every week on my other blog Rose Chintz Cottage http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/ and I invite you to stop by and join me. Have a lovely day everyone!

My New Christmas Wreath

Hello Friends~ Well, I have finally finished my Christmas wreath. Those of you who have been following my Christmas blog know that I did a little tree over and I have made a wreath to match. You can view the tree below a couple of posts down and how it has been changed up.

I used an assortment of decorations including silver, gold, white, and pink balls, pinecones, berries, some silvery branches, and ribbon.

I have placed the tree in a toile hat box and the wreath is hanging on the front door. Now I have a centerpiece to work on. So much to do; so little time!
Hope you enjoy my creations. Until next time.......

A Special Little Tree Topper

Happy Monday everyone! I have been keeping my eye out for some cuteness to decorate my little white Christmas tree with. This year, I am decorating it in honour of my new granddaughter who is supposed to make her appearance around Christmas Eve.

I wanted something sweet and girly and I found just the topper a couple of weeks ago.
Here she is hanging on one of my trees. This is not the tree she will go on. I just tried her on this one to see how pretty she would be surrounded by Christmas pretties.

This little ice fairy is happy and dreaming of sugar plums in her head. I couldn't resist her! What do you think, isn't she adorable?

Hasn't she got the cutest little face? I love her sparkly wings and little frock!

Till next time, have a scrumptious day!
