Lovely Blogging Friends

This year I have been blessed with some gorgeous handmade ornaments from my blogging friends and I thought I would share them with you.
Aren't they cute. There is a sweet little Christmas toadstool from Shez,lovely checkerboard heart from Cheryll, beautiful ornament with gorgeous handpainted button from Marina , cutest little beaded Christmas tree from Christine, sweetest little gingie minus nibbles from Fiona and such a beautiful crystal star from Liz.
This next photo is of a lovely Santa handpainted by the very clever Teresa. He almost missed out on a piccie as he was very happy amongst the branches of the Christmas tree.
Thank you lovely friends. It is so nice to have you on my Christmas tree.
I don't know about you but the madness of this time of year really ends up getting to me a bit and so I try to keep it simple and do as much as I can as early as I can to avoid the craziness....sometimes you JUST have to venture out. Like I did yesterday but when I finally got around to blog hopping I wondered in childlike awe at the beautiful graphics of Rose Petals from Heaven. Which have the ability to just make you feel better. Here is a little peak and they are two of my favourite things as well .....
And this gorgeous fellow is helping me feel a whole lot cooler in this Queensland Summer heat...
AAAhhhh! Thank you Mo.
I hope you are maintaining your equilibrium out there and that your Christmas Spirit hasn't lost it's Jingle Bells

  1. Aren't you a lucky girl! I especially like the snowmen quote, very cute. Sharyn:) ( found out I don't receive replies because I don't have a blog)

  2. I love handmade ornaments, and yours are lovely. They make the tree so much more than a designer showpiece. We are having a quiet Christmas at home so keeping the spirit is very easy this year.....but there is quite a bit of cooking ahead of me.
