I am always so thankful and grateful to my blog friends and other friend--
they are the ones whom seem to know me the best and give me the best gifts--
so here goes--
gifts from my friend Sunny--
did you notice how the snowman is melting in the Florida sunshine--
and notice the word on the mug--Believe!!
Thanks so much Sunny--
and from Shell--I got a packet of charm squares and just love these colors and have never had these chocolates before--though have seen advertising for them--and yes I did have one yesterday--the coffee one and boy did it smell like coffee--
Thanks so much Shell--
and this little hoop with the hand stitching came from Nola--
how pretty--this will probably stay out all year this year--
Thanks so much Nola--
And these came by way of Norway from my 'longest' reading and commenting blog friend, Anne-Lise--she said one is for winter and one is for summer and they are perfect for my glass of water that I always have sitting around--
thanks so much, Anne-Lise--
This is a red dish towel, small note pad and a dunkin donuts gift card from a long time pen-pal--and yes we still write actual letters back and forth a few times a year--think we have been friends for over 15 years now!!
Thanks so much Cindy-
The gingerbread things are mitts for your fingers for removing hot items from the toaster oven (or a microwave, if you have one--I don't!!!) and a Danica key ring--
from my 'old' housekeeper at the Jefferson up north!!
Thanks so much Melinda--
And from my friend Anne up north--I got chocolates, threads, 2 sets of charm packs and a cute Valentine wool project and not pictured is a beautiful Cat calendar--
Thanks so much Anne--I miss you!!

And on Christmas morning I found   this pretty necklace and Christmas card taped to my door from a new neighbor who lives 2 doors down--
thanks so much Lucy!!
So that is it for now--though I am expecting a couple late packages yet!!!
Have some fun time this week--
