I had such an amazing holiday.  I helped so many people find perfect gifts and I was the recipient of a few myself.  My Mom took a bunch of my finished needlepoint ornaments at Thanksgiving and made them into ornaments for me.  This is a huge thing in my world because I have about 30 finished ornaments waiting to be made up and to take them to my needlepoint store, it cost approx. $50 each!  A few years ago she did some for me but was quick to let me know it was not her favorite thing to sew, so I haven't asked in a while.

Here are the ones she finished...

I am so in love with them..especially the Santa.  So, so cute.

From Meg, my personal decorator, she found a perfect lamp for my apartment.  It is amazing to get a gift that you would have picked out yourself.  

I haven't tucked it behind my chair where it needs to go because I need an extension cord, but couldn't wait to plug it in and turn it on.  I am always needing light in my living room, where I work.

And from my generous friend Pam, a wonderful orchid arrangement for my dining room table. I have been wanting one from Country French for such a long time.  It is perfect.

Hope everyone had a great day yesterday!
