Christmas Bounty

It always seems like I'm bragging when I bring out gifts to show but really I can't stop myself. Forgive me. It really is easier to give but it is fun to get stuff, isn't it. And besides, we should all be taking note of the winners for our Christmas list for next year when we are wondering what to give.
My sister Teri had these hive charms made for us. They really are amazing. I love them. So perfect for everyone in the Freda's Hive Collective. Books are always winners, aren't they. I absolutely love Ina and love vintage notions. Both books are perfect gifts.
I'm a Jim Shore fan and my little collection added 2 more sweet figures this Christmas. They are both from Polly, sweet Polly. One is quilting themed and one is for my birthday month. Love them. I really love Bath and Body products. These smell amazing. I got a big gift pack from Michelle but only a few are there to show. I've already started using most of them so they are up in my room or by my chair in the family room. A perfect gift for me, too. Mr. Hive bought me these gloves (thanks for shopping and picking Shelbie). They are red (of course) and they will keep me toasty when I've got my iphone going in the cold. Not when I'm driving, of course.
This really cute calendar is from Shelbie. It is the perfect size for me to use for "at a glance" planning. Really sweet for a matryoshka lover like me.
This fun collection is from Justin and Natalie. It is so funny how everyone hit the perfect mark on gifts. The tape is like wonderful fabric I can stick to things. The trim is French and rich and beautiful. Notice the big spool is a candle as well. And it smells clean and fresh like the Bath and Body products. So when I'm done burning it I can wrap more trim around it. How's that for recycling?! I have so many more lovely things to show you in the next week. But I have to pace myself to give the full effect.
Christmas Eve I made Allison a little dress in this cute owl fabric. It looks kind of strange sitting on my ironing board.
Here she is trying it on. It works great for cold weather with a long sleeved onsie under it. She can wear it with leggings. My daughter is with her in-laws in Hawaii right now so I hope Allison is wearing it there with sandals. I'm super jealous!
Today is Mr. Hive and my 31st wedding anniversary. We are off spending the day together. I hope that I can get back to reading blogs and visiting more regularly and do some sewing by next week.
