Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe Blog has been drawing everyday winners for her 25 days of Christmas giveaways. An on the 9th day drawing - I WON!!! WOOHOO!!! I won a surprise and when I receive it I am saving it for Christmas morning to open. I think that the days which she has not drawn winners you can still leave a comment and have a chance to win still. So if you haven't been to her blog there's still time. Just be sure to scroll down on her posts to find the days she hasn't drawn winners yet! To shop her store on Ebay the link is HERE!
Okay moving on..... we had some unexpected bathroom repairs which turned out that we now have a new bathroom. A few days before Thanksgiving (oh good lord I didn't even cover Thanksgiving) it was brought to my attention that the flooring (linoleum) had a small bubble. Then after Thanksgiving it got to be a HUGE bubble. That was not good. I am not going to get into too many details but did you know there is whats called a ring underneath the toilet. The wax rings should be changed. If not then water leaks. YEP that's what happened. Turns out we had 3 layers of flooring. The most bottom one is the main wood floor, second floor is made of particle wood and thirdly your most top floor. Our second flooring was all saturated. The most bottom floor was wet ( had heater on it all night to dry) but still the wood was hard and did not need to be replaced. Thank goodness. Now after 1 week of appts all has been repaired. Therefore - we have a new bathroom. Very thankful but URG!!!!
All during this time of repairs, our son taking over the main table for his projects & photographs I managed to sneak in & take some photos all in between. Much to share....
Hansel and Gretel FINISHED!!!! Haven't had a chance yet to hunt for a frame.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! You may have seen on Lee's blog these gorgeous ornaments she made me for my Candy & Gingerbread tree. If you are now seeing them for the first time and would like to make some Lee posted how to make them HERE on her other blog "Other side of the mountain".
I absolutely melted when I opened them. Lee's talent has no limitations. Honest to goodness everyday I have to touch them and make the tassels move to hear the beads clicking - LOL!!! They are so beautiful and fun!!! Thank you again from my heart Lee!!!
Thank you Hetti for all your kindness!!! Not only to me but also for my Aunt!!!
Look what I got from Andrea and all the way from United Kingdom! I had been a very lucky recipient of Andrea's Christmas RAK. I love this snowman ornament she made. The name of the design is called "Frosty Snowflake" by Needle Bling Designs. It's already on my Candy tree:) And she also hand made this beautiful Christmas card. Thank you very much Andrea!
Talk about feeling loved. WOW WOW WOW!!! I contacted Shirlee right away and thanked her so much for such an abundance of love she sent me and asked if she wouldn't mind if I could open her gifts on Christmas morning. Of course she said yes. I assured her that her ornament will be displayed and left up all year round. Oh yes as soon as I get my stitcher's tree back up it stays up - LOL!!!
Thank you Thank you Shirlee!!!
The yarn is from Hobby Lobby. I've been wearing it, it's so soft and warm. I love it!!
Thank you sweet sister!
Hope your enjoying the holidays and are getting some stitching done - LOL!!!
Always with my love and Appreciation - Annette
