Welcome Christmas - and the 2011 Collection

Hi everyone.  I love this time of year!  We've been so fortunate to have cooler temps the past couple of days here in south Texas which hastens the transition into the season (and facilitates wearing of festive winter garments! YAY!).  

Holiday spirit is evident everywhere you look. Bell ringers are out at the retail stores.  Christmas Carols are playing on my favorite radio station, KSBJ.  Our church is preparing for it's annual live nativity program.  Angel trees are ready to receive gifts for special ones in need.  Neighborhoods are lit up with Christmas lights and Smokey is breaking in his new Santa hat and jingle bell collar. Our tree is out of the attic and ready to receive the newest collection of ornaments from my artists friends...

So, finally, it's December 5th - and time for our 12 days of Christmas exchange to begin!  All but three of the 13 ornaments in our exchange have made it to my door.  A few of the girls are running late this year due to extenuating circumstances. The remaining few will arrive shortly, but here is a picture of the packages collected so far. All are wrapped so beautifully and uniquely.

 I will be posting every day as each package is opened --- so please check back to follow along and share in the fa la la la la la la la fun!
