My December Birthday

I'm a December birthday girl

Last week this beautiful package arrived in the mail.

A gorgeous handmade pillow sachet with a sweet rose on the front!

Made especially by my dear friend Celeste of Celestina Marie Designs.

She adorned it with a very special handmade piece of her precious grandmother's!

I will treasure it always!

Special handmade tags!!

Beautiful PINK roses earrings!

A very special Scripture book for inspirational reading

And even a beautiful crystal prism angel

that now adorns our kitchen chandelier!

She even included a "welcome home" gift for our new little grandson!

What a terrific friend!! Of course, my very VERY FAVORITE gift from Celeste was her special birthday phone call to me!!

I am so blessed by our special friendship, Celeste!

Gingerbread Men and A Special Gift!

I received an early Christmas gift from a very special friend, Pat of The Urban Chic,
that I wanted to share with you.

Any time you receive a gift wrapped as gorgeously as this one was,
you just KNOW you are going to LOVE it!

Pat made this beautiful card that I will cherish always!
And look, it's even PINK!! MY color!! :0)

The inside of the card is as special as the outside.

Does Pat know me well, or what?!? A beautiful beaded angel AND
an exquisite jeweled Lenox ornament.

This keepsake ornament will be a special reminder of a dear and precious friend, Pat, who I would never have had the pleasure of knowing, had it not been for blogland! I'm forever grateful!

Now in honor of our special friendship (Pat loves gingerbread men), today I'm sharing with you a few of my little gingerbread items in the kitchen.

If you REALLY want to see an amazing collection of sweet gingerbread men, women, and gingerbread houses, you need to hop over to Pat's blog,  The Urban Chic. Her collection is wonderful.

AND she also has a very nice Christmas blog, UrbanChic Christmas, that showcases even more of her 30+ years of collections. Stop by and tell this sweet lady hello from me!
