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!

Big Hugs,

Stephanie ~ what a gorgeous ornament, Lenox is so beautiful. You are so right, what precious friends we meet in blogland ... to hold closely to our hearts forever. In some cases, meeting & forming real sisterhoods of love forever.

Your gingerbreads are darling ... I know a wee one that is going to truly enjoy them all in a couple years ... I can picture the magic in his eyes.

Have a lovely winter's day ~
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Stepanie, I am glad you liked everything... I hope the angel looks like all your mercury glass next to it. I knew you loved Lenox and there was so many to choose from, but no pink ones. thanks for sharing your sweet gingerbreads. You know I am a sucker when it comes to gingerbreads and this year with the children coming, I couldn't display all of them. 'Thanks also for blogging about the gift, I blush so easily. Love and hugs, Pat
