Instead of 'girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes' hum that tune from the Sound of Music as you look at my sweet Christmas gifts. Sorry it doesn't rhyme.
Matryoshka dolls that are measuring cups
Pink cupcake pin cushion with cupcake stand
Fabulous cook's teapot
Fuchsia wool dot scarf (eat your heart out Jane)with delicate earrings and sweet silver pendant
Quilting books, purse and a very special card
Lovely sewing book and cooking tools (much needed)
Personal Pyrex in my favorite red
Family bingo on Christmas Eve
Sample of Christmas morning (more family on the other side of the room and wow, my family room furniture doesn't look so awful in this photo)

And there are more present gifts, some not easily photographed and some being washed (already used!). Plus some fabric that I will show Friday.

My favorite things include my wonderful extended family and my very special friends. Thank you all.

Looks like your Christmas was terrific! I love the little nesting dolls. It sure feels good to have the whole celebration over and to have things put away. You inspired me to do it earlier than I usually do. I love having order in my home again. Love you tons! Tricia

Love the photo of your dog! We took our tree down yesterday. Enough of the stuff around the house. It was taking up too much room, so mann niky naky things around that my husband started the whole thing.
We are back to normal after all the Christmas festivities.
