Goodies, Christmas Tree and Ornaments

In the mail yesterday I received a giveaway I won back in October from Primitive at Heart! Patti sent lots of goodies my way!

She sent: a trio of prim candy corn, a couple of candle plates (?), dried/wax dipped orange slices, pumpkin jar, pair of prim candles, little green basket, Dove chocolate, mini autumn cookie cutters, prim corn trio, pantry cake, ornament, grubby leaves, and gingerbread recipe cards.

I can't wait to decorate with these wonderful fall goodies next year! I put the ornament on our Christmas tree, and the green basket too. The pantry cake and candles are on a side table in the dining area, and some of the orange slices are on the tree as well. Oh and the chocolate is half eaten now! I forgot to include the big bag of candy corn in the photo! The kids opened that right after I opened the box of goodies yesterday. LOL

Thank you Patti for everything!

I took some pictures of our Christmas tree today. It is all decorated.

This cute snowman came from Ginny at Prim Pals!



I made this candy cane some years ago. I stitched two and sandwiched them together.



I made this stitchery ornament a couple years ago.



My most recent ornament, Simple Joys.



My friend made this many years ago. She designed and stitched this cute lil bear.



I can't remember who made this snowman. I love the cardinal on his head! The bear with the heart is from hubby and I's first year together! (1996) It is not handmade, but I left it in the picture anyway. :)



This ginger came from Hobby Lobby plain, so he's not really homemade, but it's one of the first things I ever did along the lines of crafting. Back then I didn't really make things, other than cross stitch.



Oops these aren't handmade. LOL. But I love these ornaments. I got them last year and the year before from the Christmas store down in the city.



One of the beeswax ornaments from Shirlee and then on the right is the one Patti just sent me.



Twinkle under the tree. :)

I still just love the prim look of that tree. I don't think you could have found one more perfect if it was man made! I even recognized (that doesn't look right, oh well) a couple of things from your tree :smile: .

Hugs,
Kendra

Jessica said...
