A Surprise in the Mail

 

I received a wonderful Christmas gift today from one of my favorite people!

Yes, Elizabeth sent me a set of the tags from the swap I was suppose to be in, but was just too ill to participate….isn’t she something????

Here are some close ups….

Sorry…couldn’t wait!  Thank you E, this means a lot! 

Also, I just love all of the vintage Cardboard cutouts that we used to hang every Christmas….

Well, last year I went to the 99cent Store and got these after Christmas…I know they are a bit different, but I just love them!  I hung them on my pantry doors in my kitchen…..

They are three dimensional, and lots of glitter ( sorry you can’t see it)

I usually like to stick to the vintage versions, but they are in a box put away this year, and since I didn’t get out my usually stash, I just decided to use these…..aren’t they sweet?  Kitschy for sure!!!!

Thanks for stopping by…..

You're surrounded by cuteness Sandy, with those tags from Elizabeth, and the jolly Santas on your pantry. They're all SO cute!
Merry Christmas!
