A Christmas surprise!

It was a busy Saturday.
Mr. Lakehouse and I went Christmas shopping.
We actually accomplished quite a bit...yay!!
When we returned to the Lakehouse, I was surprised by a package in the mail.
Inside was a beautiful handmade card by Donna at My Shabby Chateau.
 Isn't it lovely???!!!
Wrapped in the foil paper were six pretty beaded dangles made with theeee most perfect colors for the Lakehouse. I think they were supposed to hang on the Christmas tree, but I thought they would look nice hanging on the chandelier for the holidays. The colors go so well with the aqua mercury glass tea light holders, and Christmas ornaments, and the sea green Ball jars, aqua chairs, sea blue chairs, bottles, and everything else in the dining room. Even the cob web hanging on the chandelier looks better with the beads!!!
Donna has soooo many talents! Beading is just one of many.

 Thank you, Donna, for such a wonderful surprise!!!! I appreciate you for thinking of me, and taking the time to send such a cherished gift, and special card...made just for me.
You are so sweet.

  11. How Beautiful & of so Sweet, of course the most beautiful colors.... Thanks for the kind comments on Santa, I may be missing my computer, but I sure am enjoying all the hours of creating, I am honestly working non stop (except to sleep a few hours and the trips to & from the frig) but energy is needed, right? I have several other dolls in the making, just wish the computer would have broken in the summer, I could have made some $$$ for Christmas... of well, I will be early for next year! Have a wonderful week

  12. What a complete blessing blog friends are, Debbie! Angels are certainly making their rounds, aren't they? Those dangles that Donna made for you are so pretty! Just perfect for your sweet chandy! :) *♥*

  13. The dangles are perfect on your chandelier. I love the colors in you home. I wish we could have had another shopping trip, but I didn't get back over there for any Christmas shopping. I plan to get my etsy shop up and going after Christmas, so I feel a Hobby Lobby trip for supplies coming on! I'll let you know when I can go and hopefully we can meet up again.

    Have a merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Saviour! Blessings to you and your family. {{hugs}}
