Look what came in the mail. It's a surprise...
...for me. ♥
Back in October I joined a Secret Santa Swap hosted by Suzanne at The Colorado Lady. I thought it would be fun to shop for someone else and send them a cute little package in the mail and at the same time eagerly await one for me too. Well... the wait is over.
My package has arrived! Yay!
Let me show you what was inside.
First was this sweet little Christmas card . It says, "It was a pleasure being your secret Santa. Trust you will like what I chose for you. I was surprised to learn we have so much in common. Wishing you and family the best Christmas ever." Isn't she sweet?
All the gifts were wrapped so pretty. There were quite a few of them in there too.
I would have liked to have taken a picture of all of the gifts layed out on the table but as you can see, my youngest daughter was just as excited as I was to unwrap everything.
As a part of the swap we had to fill out a questionnaire so our Secret Santa could know a little bit about us. I wrote that I had a little dachshund dog named Penny. I was tickled to find a little orange dachshund doggy in the first box.
It's a pen too. Cute!!! There was also a pretty little bookmark in there too.
Eight perfectly wonderful vintage cookie cutters. Love these! They are going in my big glass jar where I have all my other vintage cookie cutters.
A large cross with scripture. So pretty!
I also mentioned in my questionnaire that I loved vintage linens. Especially the kind that has embroidery work on it. Well my Secret Santa didn't disappoint. She sent me not one, but two of these vintage dresser scarves.
Three vintage doilies that are in excellent shape.
And another vintage embroidered dresser scarf.
Inside it's full of needles of every size.
Here's all the goodies all spread out. I feel so special that I was the recipient of all these lovely treasures.
Although I don't know who my Secret Santa is, I know that she is a very generous and thoughtful person for putting all of this together for me. I know she took great care to read every detail of my questionaire because everything in the box is something I wrote about. I feel she understood me so well and hand picked everything just as I would if I were out shopping for myself. There isn't anything that I don't absolutely love. Thank you so much Secret Santa. I'm pretty sure I got the very best one of them all. A big thanks also to Coloradolady for hosting the swap. Can't wait to do it again next year. It was a lot of fun!
