I've been wanting to show you all my lovely swap goodies that Carol from Buttermilk Creek Farm sent me. It was like celebrating Christmas all over again. Each items as wonderful as the last and each made with love and attention. I thought I had died and gone to prim heaven..LOL. :0)
I wanted to do more besides show you just a group shot of these new treasures. As some of you know I just don't have the heart to put some of my holiday treasures in boxes for next year....so here is my basket of winter loves. Can you see Carol's sweet snowman in back. He looks perfect with his new family of snowfolk and Santas.
I know what you're thinking....WHAT a Christmas tree.... still! Well yes...and no....LOL!!! This tree has a little black bear in it at Christmas time I decorate his tree with Christmas ornaments. Then after Christmas...just snowmen for winter. In the warmer month the tree sits empty. Getting Carol's cute as a button Santas, snowman, and kitty in a stocking ornaments made it to tempting...I had to put them on the tree. :0) In all fairness we still haven't celebrated Christmas with Brian's family so I may just keep it up until they come in early March.
I know so many of you are already in high gear for Spring and even I am beginning to feel the need to spring clean and downsize (like that will ever happen...LOL). Carol's sweet bunny got me in the mood to change out my dining room buffet. It always changes with the seasons. I just love the mouse and sheep she sent me too. I think they fit right in with my other spring goodies perfectly.
Here is a close-up photo....I wish my camera did them justice...because they are so incredibly sweet.
Here is a close-up of the little bunny she gave me too. I know... adorable right. :0)
A while back I started a whisk broom collection and Carol was sweet enough to remember that so she sent me two of them. I now need to find room for the over flow. I'm sure that wont be a problem...as I love this black shelf and I've been wanting to find something similar to put in our family room. :0)
Last is this adorable little mouse on a pumpkin. He looks right to home in my studio...which is all Halloween...all year round. See I told you I don't have the heart to put these treasures away... until their appropriate holiday comes around.
I want to thank Carol for sending me such a wonderful box of creations. I can't believe she spoiled me so much...sometimes I feel like I didn't do enough in return. I know all the time and effort that goes in to making such treasure... and it warms my heart to know that they were given to me by such a sweet friend. If you haven't been to Carol's blog please go visit her....http://buttermilkcreekfarm.blogspot.com/.
Her creations are divine and the attention to detail is amazing...treat yourself you wont be sorry. :0)
