Visits From The Prim Christmas Elves

. Hi everyone.  Hoping you have all had a great week and are looking forward to Friday and another weekend almost upon us.  Everyone seems busy with holiday baking, shopping and decorating and I am no different.  But ,,I am so enjoying the Season. 

Most of us know that Robin ( The Cranky Crow) is one of the luckiest ladies in blogland... always seems to win giveaways.  Yea, Miss Robin , Nana is talking about you. (smile).  Well, I really think she has talked to Santa's elves and decided to share her luck with little old me way down here in the South.  I have been so honored this month to win THREE giveaways . The first to arrive was from Sue   http://wickedfaeriequeen.blogspot.com/   I won 2 felt Christmas Stockings that are adorable and she also surprised me with pennie rug ornaments and a red slipper ornament. 

Oops, I forgot the red slipper.  It sneaked off upstairs and found a spot on the tree in the guest bedrroom already.  You will see it when I post my Christmas pictures.  Thanks Sue, I love everything. Sue just lost her furry friend of many, many years and her heart is sad.  I am sure it would do her proud if you stopped by and let her know she was in our thoughts.

Another little elf delivered a sweet package from Brenda at  http://therustythimble.blogspot.com/. I was one of the lucky winners of her November giveaway. It was a surprise ornament giveaway and I was beyond surprised when the package arrived. 

This little snowman is so cute . He has a pocket full of greens and a prim candy cane. 

Don't you just love this little stocking with the star faced snowman ?  He is now the tree topper for my Snowman tree.

And this little fellow has the cutest smile.  You will just have to wait and see where he ends up.  These 3 cute little fellows convienced me they did not want to be hidden upstairs in the guest room where I had the snowman theme going so....... being the nice lady I am and wanting all my new residences to fill right at home, I took a full day and switched out the bedding, tree, and all the decor from upstainrs to downstairs.  And the red bird tree in the bedroom downstairs was taken upstairs.  Thank goodness the red birds didn't seem to mind.  Guess if they don't like the guest room upstairs  they will just fly away. (giggle)  Thanks so much Brenda for the wonderful snowmen and their friendly personalities.   If you are not familiar with Brenda and her incrediable work, then go on over and visit.  You will not be disappointed.

Today was a day in which I was dreading. I had to go back to the funeral home and pick up Mother's death certificate and settle with them.  The last of her business that had to be taken care of.  As I drove by the mailbox , I had a package from Traci, http://yorkmountainprimitives.blogspot.com/   I continued on with the task at hand and when I got back in the car, I tore into the package.  Traci is hosting a 12 days of Giving over at her blog and I was the winner of Day 2.  It was a surprise and I was so excited to see what I had won.

Just look at this candle mat.  Don't you all just wish you had one?  I was so excited . It will be right at home anywhere I decide to use it.  Right now it sits on the stove board.

Also there was a large bundle of prim perfect candy canes.  I knew right away where I needed those.

They will go perfect with the wooden plate with the painting of candy canes .   Thank you Traci for bringing some happiness in an otherwise depressing day.  Go over and visit Traci.  She has been showing pictures of her home decorated for the holidays.  It will put anyone in the Christmas mood.

So....... Robin, if you did decide to share your luck with me, thank you.  If not, Santa thank you for sending some little elves my way.  Sure did make for a fun week.  I am humbled by all your generosity. 

Everyone take care and be safe whatever your plans for the weekend are.  Take time to spend time with your family, tell those you love that you do, and remember the reason for the season.

Until next time.....
