Gifties Again

More of my gift love to show you. I do have to say that I don't have all my wonderful presents to show. Some of them have been used, eaten, or put away. So forgive me for not having all the goodness displayed in my posts.
These incredible candlestick holders are from one of my best friends, Flora. I haven't been to see her for a while and I miss her but she left this sweet gift for me. I absolutely love these darling vintage angels. Shelbie has them very safely packed away for me now with extra TLC. Can't wait to use them next year.
The wonderful Laura brought me a basket of goodies. She's one of my most talented and thoughtful friends. Everything is so pretty and packaged so well.
I love it all. And I've pretty much used it all by now too.
This is a gift Lori gave me back in early December when I met the gals for lunch. I could kind of see what was inside but I put it under my tree anyway.
I have a feeling this is the answer to my morning "hot chocolate at work" problem. It is the most darling mug that I can take with me she made a sweet fabric cozy for it, too.
Look at it all. The lid fits securely on top. I've never seen anything like it. Love it all.
Lori gave me these little fat 6ths in the snowman she made me. I took them out and transplanted them to this cute mini strainer I won at family bingo. Isn't that cute. (Note to self: this strainer makes a great container for a gift.)
Whitney gave me this unique and amazing beehive cake plate and cover. It is a beehive! It couldn't be cuter. I love it.
Mr. Hive gave me this etched apothecary jar and bee plate. As you can tell my Christmas is taken down in the entry way and I've got valentine stuff up. I keep walking by that jar thinking of what red things I can put in it. I see big red jelly candy hearts or something.
I put vintage valentines on my 3 tiered stand after taking down my Christmas balls. I need to think of something else I can put in there with them, too.

I know that isn't all my gifts. But I'm sure I've shown plenty of good stuff. Thank you to everyone for my lovely and thoughtful presents.

There are only about 40 days before Valentine's Day. So bring on the red.

Love it all Nanette....and I'm so glad that you love the things that I made for you.
How about putting glittered red hearts in your 3 tier plate?
Red glittered things are a must for valentines!!!

Great gifts Nanette - especially the bee related items. My mom gave me a glass set of three beehives on plates that look similar to yours -- only mine don't have any white -- they're all clear glass. I LOVE them!

What great loot! I see lots of people have got your number.

I LOVE your Beehive Plate!! I have the same one!!! My mom gave it to me for my birthday last month and I put it on my island in my kitchen...but over my island hung my pot rack and the cake plate and dome were so big that it looked like they were growing into the pans hanging down from above! So I took the pans and the pot rack down - after 18 years!!! It really opened up my kitchen and I love it! One Beehive cake plate and dome transformed my kitchen! Now I feel like I need to keep something in it - what are you going to put in yours? Happy New Year! xo, Nan
