Fun Friday

Look what the parcel post guy brought yesterday.  A lovely "bauble" in the truest form of Christmas baubles.. from Marie!  Thanks so much Marie!  
I certainly wasn't expecting anything from anywhere ..so I was definitely surprised.  First of all when she wondered the other day if I had received a package in the mail .. which got me to wondering too...   We hadn't talked about doing a swap or anything, so I was totally stumped.  What could she be sending?... and why..? .. but, oooh, I love a good surprise. 
















At  Christmas I saw some of these that she had been making.. and definitely admired them.... now..I own one.  Love the deep, rich, jewel tones. Makes me want to put up my tree again.  However, Mr. BV might think I'm losing it...you know...the last of the  little "grey cells'... so ..I guess I'll just have to admire it on the dining room table for now.  And...then... before it gets dusty...it can move into the curio with the bears.


These two are already getting an eyeful; doing their close-up inspection.  .. what busybodies ...they're everywhere!














Christmas in February.... love it!  I like surprises any time of year.... all year 'round is fun.  Thank you again Marie.... it's lovely.

Hi Vee,
Hope you are doing great!
What a lovely surprise to get in February. I am like you, I don't mind if I get Christmas surprises all year long. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. :)
The ornament is lovely and the bears seem to like it too. :)

Hugs

What a lovely present - perhaps you could just put up a tiny tree to hang it on ....

Oh, it is so pretty! I love the colours, too... jewel tones are my faves!

LOL@wanting to put the tree back up. I think I'd have to agree with Mr. BV on wondering about the status of your grey cells! hahahaha!

Your busybodies are, as always, PRECIOUS and adorable. You really know them each I think; because you do a really awesome job of posing them just so!
