I RECEIVED!  Yes, I am shouting!!!!!!!!!!!  Grin  I am so spoiled!  Prepare yourselves for picture overload!

My secret santa wrapped everything up in pretty brown paper, tied with some of LXM's handspun:
(Each package sported a unique trim)
   

An angel (like my secret santa), birdies (there is another, tiny chirper as well).  And felty green leaves.  
The angel ornament was made in my SS's home town!  
The first package I opened contained this beautiful cross stitch cardinal cup sleeve.

 It was wrapped around this yummy box of chocolate covered sunflower seeds (and other goodies).  

The next package I opened contained three rather unique items:  
   
A woven wool brooch from Ireland:
 A travel wash and sew kit:  Hilariously cute with button shaped soaps!!!!!!!  
And this funny "Fidgit for your digit"  thing:    I'll let you know if I get any pain relief!  Cheesy  

The next package I opened contained THE CUTEST TEA COZY EVER!  
 
This is not a great picture of it!  It's a masterpiece of fiber arts!  The body is knitted and contains some of lxm's handspun for the roof.  It has a round door and window (crocheted!) and needle felted garden all around!  It is straight from my pinterest and I love it!  There was a tin of English Breakfast tea (my fave) in a classic double decker bus tin!  I think I will turn this into a pin cushion when I finish the tea, even though it has a slot on top for a bank.  We'll see!  

And finally, I opened a beautiful tea cup and saucer from my SS's collection, filled with a bees wax candle. I am a lover of all things tea and have a collection of tea cups myself (as well as teapots, but let's not go there!).  My SS said one must always be ready for a tea party!  I couldn't agree more!  
   

Here are some "action" shots!  Grin  
   
(My teapot, being cozied!  I will try to get a good pic of this tomorrow when there is daylight! -- Oh wait, I leave in the dark and come home in the dark -- never fear, I will get a shot and post it soon!)

Can you guess who my SS is?  (I knew as soon as I saw the tape on the box as I had seen that tape before!  If there had been anyone hanging around my snowy porch, they would have heard me exclaiming with excitement!!!)

Thank you, Secret Santa!  This package made me feel special!  Mwahhhh!

What lovely goodies you both received!   Cheesy   I love that stained glass angel!   And the tea cozy is awesome!   I have a guess as to who your secret santa is but I'll let others take a go since I've been doing a lot of guessing.  Smiley 


A2K did a fabulous job on your package, xladyluckx.  Cheesy  that belt as a ribbon is a great idea and that purse is really fabulous!

Glad you like your bag, xladyluckx!  The skull motif I used was called "death flake."  Cracked me up.   I had fun knitting for you and putting the package together.  I'm sorry you have been struggling with allergies!  It sounds like you've been through the ringer! 

Funny that you guys aren't outing my SS!  Cheesy  I'll out her after a few more guesses!

Well, since it's been about 16 hours since I posted I wouldn't guess....maybe that's long enough to let others have a stab at it.   Grin   I'm having a ball figuring out who is who, so my guess is... alteredmommy!   The pretty papercraft bird, the travel wash and sew thing (LOVE that button soap!  so fun!) and the brooch from Ireland are what is pointing me towards her.  Smiley
