Christmas in July!

I belong to Prim Pals Forum and we had a Christmas in July Swap. TJ from Willowbend Prims was my secret elf and look what she sent me! I was sooo spoiled! I just love ths Santa with his little crow on his shoulder and the tree and the star!
Here he is a little closer!
And this pic does no justice to these crows! TJ knows I love crows so she made me *Three Wise Crows*. There is also a battery candle behind them that you cant see. Tooo cute!
Then I got all these goodes as well,hang tags and soap and stocking ornies and a cute snowman plate. It really was like Christmas opening that box!
Last but not least this cute plate with chickens...another of my favorite things! Thanks TJ for everything!
If you arent already a member of Prim Pals come check it out! We are doing an Autumn swap now with Halloween to come and monthly happiness swaps as well. Lots of recipes and tutorials and patterns and just plain fun!

I had mentioned in my last post my brother was doing better. He is at home now and doing ok. Its mostly up to him now so we continue to pray he is strong enough to get thru this. If I hadnt seen it first hand I am not sure I would have believed what a terrible disease alcoholism is. Not only does it devour your body but it affects your brain and truly the hearts of those around you as they watch helplessly. I pray none of you ever have to see a loved one go thru this.


  1. Hi! What nice swap goodies you got! Prim friends really are best, aren't they?

  2. Hey sweetums, can't wait to see what you get for the Autumn Swap! I hear you got a fantastic partner! LOL!
