Winter Bliss

Wonderful art doll from Dot

I put out this sweet little snowman this morning. I remember being very reluctant to put him away this spring. In fact, he spent the spring and summer on my dryer where I could still enjoy him when I did laundry. As I was putting him out, I was thinking of Dot because of the little birdie. Well, guess what? A bit later I went to get the mail and I had a package from Dot! I thought it only appropriate to display the wonderful, awesome, glorious art doll with the snow man. I have dreamt of having one of Dot's dolls and look, look, look! It's perfect. I am a happy woman.


But she didn't stop there! Oh no! She sent three beautiful ATCs as well. I love, love, love them. I even got one of her wax and sequin surplus ones. Thank you Dot for this lovely package. I don't know what I did to deserve such sweet friends who take the time to make, package and ship the most wonderful things to me but I am certainly blessed.

Some of you asked if I enjoyed JoAnns..well..........I spent $60 and the thing I got for 50% off? A magazine. LOL Yes, I had a wonderful time. Half of the expense was fleece for a project of Tim's. The rest I have pics of and will show you later. I got some fabric and bits and bobs. A good time was had.

There are better pictures of the atcs at Dot's...where I first lusted after them. :)They really should be seen
up close and in detail. They're true works of art.

I will try to get a better close up of the doll, as well. You need to see the little nest of birdies.

So cute! I was hoping to get to our decorations today, but that didn't happen. maybe Monday. I am enjoying seeing all the bliss of the season on everyone's blogs.

Isn't it wonderful to have those little synchronicites - especially when it involves getting such wonderful packages in the mail!

No wonder you didn't want to hide him away - that snowman is quite a looker :-)

What a precious snowman! I had fully intended to get at least some Santa Clauses out this weekend (I collect them so have about 300 or so) but my weekend went to crap, so that's for another day.

YOu are so funny...I think it was June before I took the tinsel off the railing. The girls loved it - I still vacuum up bits of red and green.

Fun to get such neat gifts, heh?

BTW I went to JoAnn's twice yesterday and spent only twenty dollars but am thrilled with my purchases. Two clamshells of buttons that had some wonderful buttons in them. Five sewing patterns and one iron on transfer and some bias tape - all for less than twenty. :)

Oh Lisa what a splendid parcel. I have to agree a Dotee parcel is always deluxe.

I am tossing up whether to go the 'whole hog' with decorations this year, but spotted a Christmas Tree suncatcher in the laundy window today - there from last year. It made me smile.

Enjoy your goodies.
