Merry Christmas my sweet friends I hope this post finds you
warm, cozy and surrounded with family and friends.

The sled is loaded and we are on our way.
A few more hundred miles to go and we will be with our family.
We left the house at 9:30 and should arrive in Ohio around 2:00, weather permitting:)
First stop Sylvania Ohio, to celebrate with my hubby's family.
Then Christmas morning we head back north to Monroe Michigan
to visit with our dear friends Steve and Angie
and their three little sweeties.

Hop back in the sled and continue north
to my folks house in Grosse Pointe to celebrate with my family on Christmas Day.

I am tired just writing about it.
I wish I had Santa's sleigh!
I am definitely adding this to my wish list next year. LOL!
I am so thankful for coffee:) tee hee

Speaking of thankfulness I am so thankful for all of you my wonderful friends
I have met through blogging.
Your kind comments and words of encouragement and friendship are such a blessing:)

I have to share some pictures of some wonderful gifts I recently received
from two genuinely gracious and lovely ladies I have met through blogging.
The first comes from my dear friend Donna of Brynwood Needleworks,
she has truly spoiled me.
Just look at all the goodies she sent!

The Acorn ornament is made from a richly colored felt
topped with a yummy brown velvet and embellished with a sweet little acorn charm!

Just the perfect colors and theme for our guest room.
Which has an acorn and woodland animal theme.
As you can see in the photos here.

She also sent me my first ATC, it is a work of art!
And shall be framed and added to the guest room as well.
She also sent me a handmade needle cozy, did I mention she spoiled me?
Thank you, thank you Donna you are sweet heart:)

And a big thank you to my sweet friend Shell at the Raspberry Rabbits
for sending me this super cute coffee cup filled with yummy chocolates,
just what this weary little elf needs:) Lots of caffeine!
Thank you Shell!

Blessings to you all.
Merry Christmas wishes
and sugar plum kisses!

Merry Christmas, my dear friend. Travel safely to see family and friends and then back home again. We don't want anything happening to you!

Now...About that bed in your acorn room. I just want you to know that you gave me a huge dose of ENVY along with your wonderful post about my gifts to you. I'm so glad that you like my gifts and that you have a special place for them, but...if you ever decide to rid yourself of that gorgeous bed...!!!!

Thank you for all your kind words. I'm so glad we met this year! I look forward to getting to know you better.

Warm Hugs from Florida,
