My sweet little Christmas house...

Erica's package arrived early this week and my Christmas house is absolutely breathtaking! 

It's so darling that I couldn't stop taking pictures.

Love the greenery around the toadstool and very jeweled Christmas tree.  Swoon!

Even the backside is adorable.  Just look at these sweet bunnies lurking around the trees.

Erica really spoiled me with all sorts of additional treasures.

Things like crafting supplies, a vintage Shiny Brite boot, toadstool ornament, Christmas corsage, miniature tree topper and special cards were included in her package.

Love the green handle on this gingerbread cookie cutter!


Just look at these delicate blue bird pinecone ornaments that she included for the girls.  So sweet!!

Erica thank you so much for all my special treasures.  You are such a talented young lady.  If you'd like to see more of her work, be sure to visit her blog and her etsy store .

Oh I can't wait until I have some time to join in some of these lovely swaps. I really have missed my crafting time since Chris has taken this new job. The pace is really exhausting for us all!

This house and the one you made for Erica are so beautiful. I can't wait to pull out my paper houses this weekend in my little crafting room.

I am so proud of Emma and her band accomplishments. As I have started cleaning out my classroom, I have found a little something special for her. I will try to get it in the mail soon.

Keep those Christmas crafts coming so that I can live vicariously through you until I have some time later in December.

Many pre-holiday hugs,
Cindy

Charming Christmas house . . . This encouraged me to digout my mothers cookie cutters. I have a green handled Christmas tree, gingerbread man, star, cookie shape, and a red handled star, round circle and heart shape.

The green handled cutters are very well made, . . . amazing.
Memories are made of this . . .
