I`m home again,after almost 4 wonderful dayes,
with my daughter,SIL, and the kids,---
and wanted to start showing you some gorgeous gifts from  dear blogging friends!
I will show them almost in the order, they arrived to me.

Can you imagine my heart running a bit wilder, when seing this darling angel,
I recieved from my sweet dear  friend YVONNE 

Isen`t she beautiful, and lovely, and kissable? So wonderful 
made with gorgeous details,-and all sewn and embroidered by Yvonne!

She arrived in this happy christmas bag so wonderful also, and with so
many sweet messages!

Yvonne whom I admire much,both as a warmhearted and strong woman,
and as an amazing artist ,also created this gorgeous collage, here hanging on a cabinet standing in my 
kitchen area,where it fits perfect to the blue colour!
Thankyou my dear friend- I LOVE every thing -- ,it is not often I recieve dolls -or angels from others,so this gift is extra dear to me Yvonne.

From another very close and dear, to me, friend -- LISA  I recieved this amazingly elegant and 
beautiful christmas stocking, together with something I ordered before christmas!

Isen`t it  Stunning with the fur and beautiful rhinestone brooch-and sewn from
a very pretty quilted fabric.
Thankyou my dearest Lisa, I so love your wonderful gift, and all you create 
and am thankful for our friendship!

And long ago, I also recieved a little packet from dear CINDY,
with the text on the envelope : Not to be opened untill christmas!!
So I have paitiently been waiting! But here is what I found,- a set of beautiful dragonfly earrings,
I know they can be purchased in Cindy`s Etsy shop, so click her name and go visit.
They are wonderful, and I love them, Cindy, thankyou so very much dear friend!

The last one for today came from another sweet friend  SHERRY
She made me this very beautiful envelope in soft cotton batting,
decorated with a wonderful  piece of fabric, with old postcards, and sweet buttons
and lace.

This is the back of it ,I love this fabric, 

and inside a tiny darling crystal angel,  My number two angel this christmas, but not the last one!

Isen`t she lovely, and the envelope so sweet and wonderful.
Thankyou so very much dear Sherry, I love my gifts from you ,too.
I am so blessed and feel very happy for all my precious friendships,I have gathered
because of blogging, I wouldn`t have been the same, without you- and treasure you all,
and that counts  everyone visiting my blog!

There are more wonderful gifts to see, in my next post, -
I hope you all have had a wonderful christmas, and look forward to visiting
you again, in the coming dayes.
