Everyone's gifts are so lovely!!

I opened yesterday morning and was excited beyond belief!!

The first item I received was a HUGE wish: an infinity scarf! But I wore it to my boyfriend's yesterday and accidentally left it in his coat closet, so I don't have a picture of it! But it's dark gray and absolutely wonderful and warm and soft and lovely!

I also received two headbands, straight off of my pinterest!

I love the purple color. It looks better in person!

Then I received some delicious goodies! A Hersheys bar, Reeses cups, and very tasty cappuccino mixes!



I already drank 3 cappuccinos with milk! Yummy!!

And my Secret Santa was:


Yaaay! Thank you so much Heather! I love everything you sent me!

The swap gallery is looking wonderful so far!! I had my suspicions about who my swap partner was (her and I did a swap together a few years ago so I recognized the address) and was right! Here's what the lovely Peppermint McSprinkleson aka .:dollface:. crafted for me:

I'm pretty sure she made me a knitted wrist cuff and a place mat... correct me if I'm wrong .:dollface:.!

I just love the fabric she used! AND she threw in some chocolate... my weakness!

Here's a closeup of the owl and stitching detail:

And the back:


Thank you .:dollface:. Cheesy you did a wonderful job!!

I was out at Disney World yesterday and didn't get home until like 2:30am so I opened my gifts this morning instead of yesterday.


Here's everything wrapped up. Each of the three items had a little note on them with a hint or clue.


And here are all three gifts! First is a totally awesome pair of crochet shoe covers (spats.) I need to get an action photo of these but the idea is that you use them with a pair of plain boots and they dress them up. In fact, while googling to better explain it, I found this which shows the pattern. But I'll get an action shot. They're awesome though!! And they totally match the colors of my steampunk outfit too!

Then there's a "Back from the Dead" shirt which is a play on my favorite movie of all time, "Back to the Future" and a combination of my love for all things Halloween.

And finally, there's a lip gloss. And at first, I admit, I was confused. The hint said it tied into my favorite time traveling movie but I couldn't figure out how it related. Then I turned it over...


Ah....funny! Grin

My secret santa did not disclose their name though so whomever you are, please announce yourself so I can thank you properly! It was a wonderfully thoughtful package! Grin

Edit to add, thanks to the organizer letting me know my santa's identity, I can properly thank GrannysAnnie for the awesome package. Thank you, GrannysAnnie!

This is the package I got from my partner ollieorange!


A needle roll in a gorgeous tree fabric, a rainbow cowl, a small painted canvas, and peppermint bark.

The photo really does not do the colors justice the cowl and needle roll are much brighter and rich in person.

I love everything,  thank you ollieorange!

My turn! My amazing swap partner was quaggy! Aka Mistletoe Kisses. She made me sooo much awesome stuff (and sent a ton of extras)! I was completely spoiled and couldn't have imagined a better package! I said in the questionnaire that owls and forest animals were my favorites and she definitely listened. Everything is so perfect!

Here's everything all wrapped up. All of the presents have hand painted gift tags on them! And the wrapping paper is so cute.


And she also sent a bunch of extra gift tags!


They were in this bag. I love the fabric!


This tin was filled with candy and...


Two gingerbread ornaments! They're so cute and I put them on my tree right away.


Pretty owl candles.


This awesome owl mug rug!


I collect coffee mugs and I love this one so much. I've been drinking out of this nonstop since yesterday morning when I opened my package!


Tiny owl pincushion!


More owly goodness! This looks so good on my shelf with all my other decorations. I thought it was such a cute idea.


I have never seen these before and they're delicious.


And I saved my favorite thing for last, this beautiful mixed media hoop! I squealed every time I opened something, but I probably squealed loud enough to wake the dead when I saw this. I love it so much and I'm keeping it on my wall year round.


Thank you so much, Quaggy!! Like I said, you completely spoiled me and I appreciate it so much! I absolutely love everything. Merry Christmas!!! Smiley
