FIRST!!!  I received my package of goodies from Leslieshappyheart on preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'Friday...unfortunately'), we were not home and the mail carrier left my package with a neighbor, who put it in their garage...one problem:  they were going out of town for the weekend!! OH NO!!!

No fair!  They left me a note saying they would be back Sunday afternoon! Sad

Hubs and I planned on cleaning out our garage so all Saturday and most of Sunday, I spent staring at the neighbor's garage, peeking inside the windows, longing for my package!!  I even dreamed of ways to break in, but you know I wouldn't go to jail for Craftster! Wink

Anyway, Sunday dragged...1 preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'pm...2pm...3pm...4pm...FINALLY')!!!

I carefully unwrapped everything--the box was marked FRAGILE.



I opened the smaller packages first...the suspense was killing me, though...

The cutest felt tree ornament ever!  A beautifully stitched mini Christmas tree wall hanging/ornament!  Sari yarn! (I have pined for sari yarn for years now!) A tasty little box of chocolates (which hubs claimed!).



Wait!  What is that in the back?...be patient!

Close up of the little felt tree!


Little wall hanging tree!


Do you see a theme starting here? Yep...the grand finale...the most creative tree centerpiece!  Little beaded and decorated felt trees on tiny spools...love it! I put a candle in the center to show a suggested use.


More details:




Thanks so much for a great start to my holiday decorating, Leslie!  I am sure you have way better pictures and much more detail, but you can't match my excitement and happiness with getting this box of HO HO HO!

Oh, that's lovely! What a great centerpiece idea. You always so such beautiful work, LesliesHH! I also really love the little felt tree ornament. Such a wonderful box of holiday cheer.

Each tree is decorated with either little buttons, round beads, cylindrical beads...for the holidays, it will sit on my big oak round table...I have a huge pillar candle that will fit perfectly...and still be safe--no forest fires! Cheesy

Yay!  I'm glad you like it all!

In my mind's eye, I thought the tree ring would look cool with polyfill mounded around it like snow, so I took this picture:


I enjoyed playing with the tree theme, and I think I will make a few trees like the ones in the centerpiece as individual tree ornaments--maybe using white or red felt so they show up well against the green Christmas tree.
