A package from Australia...

Look what arrived from Australia yesterday afternoon...

Something special for me!! I was very careful to open the package just so...

And here's what was inside...two presents...one for now...and one for Christmas morning...so exciting!!


A pretty card too...from Jan...what fun...I can hardly wait...


Look at what was inside my ornament package...oh my...I do love birdies!! So carefully stitched...so perfect!!!




And...oh goodness...there are two ornaments!! Just look at this cute face...I have to find the perfect spot to display these ...I know they are supposed to be for the tree...






But this one is just too perfect for a little basket of pine cones...I have always left it plain...but no more...isn't he perfect on it...oh yes!
Thanks Jan...you are so sweet!! And thanks, Chookyblue for setting this up! This is my first Christmas as a blogger and I have met so many wonderful gals from all over...and I must say...you girls in Australia are extra sweet!!
Thanks again!! Merry Christmas!!!
