Christmas Comes Early!

Hurray! I won a giveaway at Primitive by the Light of the Moon, and look what arrived in the mail? Isn't it wonderful? I just love the way it looks ~ a brown package wrapped in homespun ~ simple beauty. And the little snowman on top is a handmade punch needle pin that I can wear during the holidays. Thank you, Ginger. I just love it.



What's inside you ask? Well, I didn't open it. LOL Nope, it's just TOO pretty to open. I know that it's a kit to make these penny ornaments, so until I'm ready to stitch them, I'm going to keep the package intact. It's like having two gifts in one!



You can get the FREE pattern for these ornaments from Ginger of Primtive by the Light of the Moon. She is also continuing to have giveaways throughout the holidays. So be sure to stop by and take a look. She's been busy creating all sorts of beautiful prim treasures for her shops. Just look at these sock monkeys that she made. I just love them! Reminds me of me and Jeffrey! LOL



I've been listening to all the pretty Christmas music on so many journals that the boys have decided we MUST begin our Christmas decorating today. So today it begins! I can hardly wait. With my short memory, every year is like a treasure hunt. I'm always surprised at the Christmas things I forgot I had last year. So this should be lots of fun.

With joy,
Lea

Christmas has come early at your house, Lea! I sure hope you enjoy that wonderful package of goodies... And I am always surprised as well when we unearth the Christmas decorations. But it's all part of the fun, isn't it?

It was such fun to catch up with your latest posts... Stop on by when you can.

Congrats Lea! That's a really neat lil prim package you got, and oh those penny ornies are wayyyyyy too cute! I had to go print out the pattern - I've got tons of stacks of pennies already cut from my wool scraps, so it will be something I can do in my "free" time...lol
We're having our TDIPT Christmas swap, and if it's anything like our fall swap was - we're all like little kids at Christmas, waiting to see who drew our name and for our package to arrive! When we do our mail out of our swap packages, I'll post pics of what I get from my swap sistah...the girls in TDIPT are sooooooo incredibly talented!!!

Hi Lea! It is fun I've already started to go through my boxes and I've finished my Den and I'm almost done with my livingroom. I'm beginning to get way into the spirit! Deb

Congrats on your wins! They are just lovely!

Penny @ Miss Pootsie's Primitives said...

Lea those are just tooo cute! I love the way she wrapped them up too. I wish I could get motivated to decorate.... just so doggone busy! I just keep telling myself, "It's not even Thanksgiving yet, I don't have to worry about decorating for Christmas!" LOL...
Hey... I nominated you on my blog for the "Uber Amazing Blog" Award! I love reading your blog. Makes me feel all warm and cozy! Check it out if you have time honey! Love, Penny

What a sweet surprize! And I too, love the simple beauty of the wrapped package.
Have fun decorating today. I have been doing some too. And I always forget about thigns until I see them!
May your day be merry & bright!

Marion said...

Oh that looks like a wonderful prize!! I don't know if I could leave it wrapped though! LOL
Take care

Julie said...

Oh, you're so funny!
I, too, forget what I've got in the Christmas decor stuff! We've got 21 years worth of stuff and I almost always pick up something in the after Christmas sales and box it away for NEXT year! I can't wait to see what treasures, we have, too!

Those penny rug ornaments are so pretty -- but, like you, I'd not want to open that pretty packaging!

Sock monkeys are so precious! I've never owned one -- nor do I have a clue on how to make one... but I want to. There's something so nostalgic and romantic about them...

Blessings,
Julie
