Fun Gifts!

Gifts and happy surprises are always fun, but it is even more fun when the gifts are from someone you have never met before!

This beautiful angel was given to me by Noelle, Prince of Peace blog, I won the Give-Away drawing! What a wonderful prize! Visit Noelle's lovely blog to see her collection of Nativities.

I displayed her with three of my Nativities (that's one above her.)

Another fun package arrived before Christmas!

This package of goodies was sent to me by my Secret Sister Santa! A small group of ladies and I have been on a decorating group for years and this is the third year we have drawn names to exchange gifts. After the gifts are received we play a guessing game to see who can guess the correct giver! This year we didn't get to play our game before Christmas and will do it soon, therefore I can't reveal who my sweet Secret Sister is yet, but she knows who she is!

I love all the gifts, especially the handmade items below she made for me!
Look at these cute little "tea wallets," great for keeping tea bags in your purse!

Thanks, ladies for these wonderful gifts! I hope we may meet in person someday!

A very Happy New Year with many blessings to you all!!
