Secret Santa Sack Reveal & Tuesdays Treasure

OMGoodness!!! Today is the day we get to open our Secret Santa Sacks, a wonderful swap by the very lovely Cheryll of Gone Stitchin' who just happened to be my swap partner. I have been THROUGHLY ruined not just spoilt. Look at all this gorgeousness. It wouldn't fit in the beautiful bag Cheryll made me.
Here we go!!!!! July and August....
Everything was themed...ooh how I love a theme. Gorgeous shoe bags, the sweetest little cup and saucer in matching shoe box and then a gorgeous red scarf, initialled hankie and hand towel set.
But wait there is more. Next we have September & October.....
More pretties. Lovely stationery in a gorgeous box, smellies and beautiful coathangers (guess this means I also get to have something on them) and the sweetest tatted book mark and a pretty keyring.
November & December...
More favourites here. A curly wurly scarf YAY! love those, chokkies & Christmas hand towel and the sweetest tool bag complete with supplies. I was hankering after one of these when I saw it on Cheryll's blog.
I am a huge fan of Robyn Pandolph and can you see that gorgeous bundle of fabrics....dreamy!
My Christmas gift which I could not save (sorry too feverish) is the most beautiful table runner made from the same range of fabrics.
Isn't it just beautiful. Cheryll has been very naughty. She asked me for a list of things I like and so I gave her a list of quite a few things thinking it would be helpful to her for ideas....NEVER did I think she would give me the list I think in it's entirety. A very naughty Elf but ohhhh sooo NICE!!
Thank you so much Cheryll for your thoughfulness and kindness. You have enriched my festive season a hundredfold. I feel very spoilt.

Tuesday's Treasures:
As this is the last one for the year and a real favourite of mine as is my lovely friend MELODY who is our hostess I had to join in. As you have been aware having been bombarded with my mad Christmas decorating and especially my memory tree it is a treasure to me. Today treasure today is however my Christmas gift from my Mum for my tree. I have been allowed to open it as she wanted to see it hung on my tree. So here is my gorgeous Royal Doulton Old Country Roses Peace Dove.
Being a gift from my Mum it will always be a treasure. I am getting a little collection of OCR ornies now.
Why not pop on over to Melody's see what other treasure is being shared.
Blessings Michelle xxx
