Greetings friends.... I sure hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was a quiet one with hubby, Silas, Aunt Holly, and I. It was just as well really since poor Silas came down with his first ear infection and hubby came home from a business trip with a head cold. I'm sure you all have guessed by now that I didn't escape the germs....oh...no...I have a head cold and then some so I thank my two lovely boys for sharing...LOL. It seems like the month of November came and went with in seconds. Every weekend has been so busy that I haven't even had time for a hair cut which I sorely need. Anyway more about what's been keeping me so busy in a little bit.
I just have to show you another wonderful set of ornies I received. A little while back OLM http://primitivesbyoldeladymorgan.blogspot.com/ did a ornament swap that I participated in. The above photo are of the lovely ornaments I received...I forgot to take photos of what I sent (I know I'm bad). Starting with the top and going clockwise... Lovely prairie doll and sweet little stocking by Tam @ http://aprimitiveplace.blogspot.com/, The cutest reindeer I ever did see by Becky @ http://primitivesnstitchin.blogspot.com/, A tasty looking gingerbread man from Allison @ http://sewmanygirls.blogspot.com/, and last another yummy looking gingerbread man from Cindi @

Here are a few close-up shots of the tree so you can see some of the lovely ornaments...you'll see all the new ones from the OLM swap and even some from Amy's swap (they're all on the tree believe me it's a big one...plus I love them all).
Here are a few of my Santas....the one on the left and right are by Tricky Stitches Primitives http://trickystitchesprimitives.blogspot.com/ and the one in the center is a Stein's Country Collection http://www.steinscountrycollection.com/.

Last are a few of my Pat Murphy bears http://murphybears.blogspot.com/. I was lucky enough to see Pat last week at a very small show in West Virgina. It was so good to see her...it's been a few years so it was good to catch up on what's been happening in our lives. Did I take photos....of course not....did I take photos of the Hunt valley bear show the week before....no....okay one. What can I say I forget about my camera...it's all about living in the now.
Well... I'm sure you're all thinking... look at all the links.... what the....well I believe in sharing what you love. :0)
Okay...I must be off...hopefully the next time I'll be able to post about a swap, a few good finds, and about a few projects I've been working on. I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy. :0)
