Tonight the theme for the SNS party with Donna @ Funky Junk Interiors is "Favorite Things".
I have a long list of favorite things......but just yesterday I received two new favorite things and I had to post about them tonight.
My first new favorite thing is a giveaway win from the very talented Pammy @ Up In The Attic. Pammy creates beautiful jewelry pieces (amongst other things) and she recently hosted a giveaway of one of her "Santa Baby Bubbles".
I love Santa's (I posted about part of my collection last week) so I was very excited to win one of Pammy's jewelry pieces.
Look how beautifully the gift was wrapped.
The paper cone made from Christmas sheet music with a beautiful Glad Tidings medallion is a gift in and of itself!
And I love how Pammy used her business card to secure the Santa Baby Bubble necklace (isn't that the cutest picture)
The bubble is two-sided. Santa on one side....
Thank you Pammy for this beautiful gift. You can be sure I will be wearing it all month! Head on over to Pammy's blog, Up In The Attic, and pay her a visit, you won't be disappointed. She has a website too where she has lots of beautiful things for sale, including the Santa Baby Bubble. You can access the website from her blog.
Oh....I almost forgot....Pammy hosts a monthly meme called Project Monday. It is held on the second Monday of every month.
My second new favorite thing is Christmas related as well.
Late last year I found a Christmas tablecloth at the thrift store. The tablecloth was square, sized for a card table. I gave it to my mom and asked if she would make an apron out of it for me. Here's the cute apron she gave me yesterday.
I just love the jolly Santa's on the fabric. To mimic the black belt running across the bottom of the fabric, she gave the apron a black waistband and attached a big silver buckle.
She was able to make two aprons out of the one $4.00 tablecloth and my SIL is the lucky recipient of the other one.
The old saying goes "It's better to give than to receive" but in this case I'm glad I was on the receiving end of these two wonderful gifts.
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.
