I had the most wonderful Christmas, thanks to my rockin' husband. I gave him a list from my Etsy favorites, and every one that I had specifically asked for, he gave me for Christmas!
First, a gorgeous bird pendant from For The Love Of.... I can't wait to wear it! And yes, that would be a Kimba brooch beside it. Love it. Love her. But I didn't get that for Christmas.
Just to show you how tiny this little Tufted Titmouse is, here's me holding it:
Is that not the cutest thing EVAH? And it looks just like its namesake. Here's proof:
Okay, so it's not the best picture ever made of a Tufted Titmouse, but I didn't want to go stealing someone else's picture without their permission. Y'know? Anyway, titmice are my favorite little birds because of how cute they are. This gift made me squeal. But not as loud as the last gift did...
Can you guess what it is?
It's a beautiful name sign from Susie Harris! She has closed down her Etsy for the time being, but you can see what my whole sign looks like (different name, of course) by checking out her sold items. She is so talented, and I lurve my sign. Sound Man and I are arguing where it's going to go, of course. He wants it above the arch that separates our living room from our dining room (it's actually one big room that used to be two rooms. The "arch" is actually part of the wall that remained when they tore down the dividing wall.). I want it above our fireplace in the dining room when we take down the awful mirror that's above it. Blech. We have a LOT of work to do on that half of the room. I can't wait to see what it looks like when my sign gets put up there!
I am so thankful to my Sweet Sound Man for not only giving me things I love, but also supporting artists like me; those who craft not just because they want to sell something, but because they love to create.
If you have bought a tassel from me this past year, you have my sincere appreciation. I wish I could express how grateful I am for your business. Because of you, this was the reaction all of us wanted to see Christmas morning:
I would have gladly given all my gifts back just to see that face. But I'm glad I don't have to. : )
