I have some great things to share today.  I participated in a Christmas ornament swap run by Cindy at  I sent 3 ornaments, so I received 3 back.  I'm so glad I did this swap-check out the great ornaments that were sent to me!  This first one is made by Cindy-isn't it beautiful?
This next ornament was made by Madalynne Bergin of Pineapple Primitives- I think he's so cute!
The third ornament was made by Wendy of Wendy Groskopf Creations.  This doll is stuffed with something that smells heavenly!  She's very cute too!
But-that's not all!  Cindy also sent me the most darling doll and teddy bear as a little gift.  Thank you so much Cindy- I love them both and Amelie has already claimed the teddy bear for her playroom.  A big thank you to the ladies that made my ornaments also.  I love them!

I also received an order from Nikki from  Nikki made these gorgeous real life scale candle ornaments for your christmas tree.  When she posted them in her blog I knew I wanted them- I can't believe I was lucky enough to buy them!  I love them so much, I can hardly wait to decorate for the holidays.
Nikki also sent me some extra gifts- thank you so much Nikki.  I am in love with everything you sent- you are so sweet as well as talented :) !!!  I am over the moon about the owl ornament!!

  We had some snow here in Minnesota today.  Just a dusting so far for us up north.  This was Miko's first real snow and he had such a fun time playing in it- so funny to watch!
Here is Miko looking longingly out to the  snow- he had just been outside for 20 minutes but wanted to go back out again.
Here's what Henry cat thinks about the snow.  I'm leaning towards her thoughts :)  Hope you are all having a good weekend :)

What a great post!! I especially like the part about the Thimbleprims Ornaments swap. : )
Seriously, I'm so glad everything got to you all right and that you like everything. It looks like Little Doll is settling right in. I didn't make her. I don't know who made her, but she seems like a very likeable doll person.
Lots of love,

I'm definitely in Henry's camp. Snow is pretty, but it makes me want to snuggle up in my bed. :)

The ornaments you received are so lovely, Kim. And Nikki's things...well, they're made by Nikki. 'Nuff said. :)

How's the art coming along? Done any new pieces?

What a neat exchange - the ornaments are charming! Oh, you have snow - I wonder if we can be far behind? Miko looks adorable looking out at the snow.

Cindy! thank you again so much...I thought you had made that cute doll- I Love her!! I love the teddy too- this was a great swap! :)

Cia- I'm in Henry's camp too- I think the snow is pretty- but I'm always cold so I don't have a strong desire to be out in the snow-lol :) Hard to resist those cute doggie eyes begging to play though. The candles are so gorgeous- I feel so lucky they will be on my tree :) I lost my board book- so no new piece yet...but I'm picking up a new book tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have something to share before weeks end! Hugs back to you!

Jill- thank you!! I think I might have a suitcase big enough to fit Haggie :) Hugs to you too!!!

Thank you Ascension!!! Doesn't Henry Cat look so comfortable?

Claudia- I hope snow is waiting a bit yet for you- I always wish for a late snowfall so winter does not seem so long. Miko had such fun in that snow-he reminds me I have to make more time for playing :)
