Naughty but Nice

Yesterday I had the 'Coffee Club' experience with my friend Ann for a Christmas catchup. As I said in my previous post we exchange an ornament for our tree. Earlier this year Ann was off travelling and called by the USA on her way home. She visited the Thomas Kinkade shop and yep! bought me this gorgeous plaque which is 'techically an ornament (very naughty she never plays by the rules) it is beautiful. Not to mention the gorgeous Christmas card handmade by her as well. Ann has done a lot of travelling and never fails to bring me back  beauitful ornaments as mementoes of her trip. So I am lucky enough to have ornaments from all over the world on my Christmas tree.
Very Naughty!!
To top off a lovely day I came home to find a beautiful card from FIONA from Bubzrugz which had attached one of her beautiful recycled 'snowflake' ornaments I had admired on her blog. I love something that has been re-purposed and given a new life as something is now hanging very beautifully on my tree. Thank you so much Fiona I love it and will treasure it.....another very Naughty but Nice person. xxxx
I would have to say decorating our tree (after having lost all our ornaments) is the thing I love most to do at Christmas as there are so many memories and keepsakes from so many friends and family and I think about each and everyone of them as I put their ornaments on the tree. So thank you to all those Naughty but Nice people who have contributed so beautifully to our Christmas tree. You put the heart into our Christmas.

Oh so pretty!!
I have still some deadlines to meet so I am going to get off here and take to my stitching chair, put on a DVD and get to work.
