Canada Post delivering on a Sunday......really....

Yes,, they really were working overtime....and may I say how happy I was! This year because of my poor health and the fact that I still owe some friends a few parcels.....I had decided one swap for the Christmas Season. So I entered Marsha from Marsha's Musings (also known as sassyminidolls) ornament swap. Oh my, when the Dutchman brought a parcel in and said, "the post office is delivering today", I knew right away what it was!!!! My parcel from Marsha!!!
The first thing I unwrapped was this sweet fabric candy cane, attached to a message from Marsha....along with a wonderful recipe from her Aunt Nena. She is no longer here to share the holidays with Marsha, but I know I will think of them both when I make the candy cane cookies!!!


Next came this beautiful heart, and you know I love hearts! Made from a very old piece of Portuguese linen, thank you Marsha...this is exquisite!!!
Look at the lovely fabric tag, isn't that divine!!!!
And then there was another package, with a wonderful Christmas card! All tied up in a star shaped box.....
Look at the tiny vintage hanky, so pretty!!!
With this sparkly Merry Christmas......

Oh my, this is soooo exciting!!!!

Marsha, Oh my goodness....... oh my, she is gorgeous!!!! A porcelain tassel doll.....all in a creamy white with beautiful red hair!!!! She is just breath taking!!! Sorry if the photo is blurry, I had a few tears.....I am so touched that Marsha made me this doll.....it has been such a struggle this year and I am overwhelmed with the love and support from my blogging friends!!!!
Have you ever seen anything so beautiful and delicate, look at her hands, she has pink nail polish!!!! Marsha, I will cherish her forever, thank you my dear friend!!!

On December 1, Marsha will be posting all the swap participants and their ornaments so you will get to see what I made for her, so stay tuned and come back and share with me your stories...... of blogging and friendship....
