I am not sure where to share photos of our gift.  BUT  I am so excited!  I got my gift just a short time ago!  It is a photograph, very professionally matted.  The subject is a sand snowman!  It is adorable and I LOVE IT!  The person, who shall remain nameless for now, also sent a set of birthday cars which feature his or her photographs.  There was some hot cocoa mix and also some seashells.  I cannot wait to get to the local framer I use to get a frame for this "too cute for words" photo!  Thank you so much!!!!

P. S.  Forgive my photo ... it was taken with my phone.


This is the place to share, Cindy! Very cool. I'm going to add the image to your post here, not hard to do. All the details are in the FAQ's up at the top of the site. 

I've got a good idea of who sent this gift, someone who has played with us before and lives in Florida ... just guessing.

I don't know all the people who have participated before but you know who this is!

The snowman picture is neat ... makes me cold just looking at it!

Santa has delivered to my house. Look at this amazing package. What could it be?

and the beautiful broom inside. Fine quality from multicolored broomcorn (who knew it came in so many colors?) to the fine smooth handle, the sturdy multicolored thread and binding. I don't really think I can ever use this. It is perfect for my old house. Thank you Broomcorn Johnny, Brian. 

(Just between you and me, I think it pays to be the hosting Santa ;)

According to Chinese superstition, you should put that outside your door with the broom end up to keep burglars away.  I don't know why it keeps them away, but it's supposed to.

According to tracking the Priority package I sent should have arrived today.

Gorgeous colors in this beautifully unusual tile! Thanks so muc, Bev Boyle!!

I was thrilled to receive this bevy of gifts from Paula Decker Haynes. I look forward to hanging these two pieces in my new office!! Thank you very much Secret Santa!!


I am in love with this!

My secret Santa is Cissy Rozbal Heaton!  She made this bowl and a pendant especially for me and a pendant for my husband.  How thoughtful!!!!  I will find a good place to put it so I can see it shine everyday!  Thank you so much Cissy!

Received a really neat ceramic container (and lemon soap) from Donna Lashof.

Have a happy holiday everyone.
