Ok i know gorgeousness is not a word but geez it surely describes the pretty things that my parcel guy brought to my house today!
First up was a package from my lovely, sweet, funny, cheeky and oh so talented friend Kara @ Innocent Charms Chat. I purchased a pair of earrings that Kara showed on her blog. I just had to have them as soon as i saw them! Kara bought some chrissy decos from me so we did a lil' swapsy thingy-ma-jig.
I was sooo excited opening this package i tell you.
Kara is sooo sweet, not only are my earrings TO DIE FOR, she sent me a beautiful porcelain rose as well(ohmigosh i love it so much) and a special package for Sam too.
And Kara i have to tell you i cried a little when i read the card you wrote me. Right back at ya baby. I luvs ya too !
Now for the piccies.

My gorgeous earrings hanging on the card Kara sent me, and the beautiful porcelain rose.Click on the picture to see a close up of the earrings, they are just so perfect.

Sam was sooo excited to open his parcel,he even posed for photos (he NEVER does that anymore).

THANKYOU so much Kara you sweet chickadee, i love my pretties so much.
Im so glad we are friends, you always make me giggle.
If you havent checked out Karas Blog and her beautiful and Original Creations please do it now...HERE ! (oh well after you read this of course).Oh and be sure to check out her Etsy as well !

The next package of total gorgeousness came from a new blog friend Alice @ Romantic Thoughts.Alice was my partner in Kerryannes Handmade Ornament Swap. I was over the moon to have Alice as my partner but a little nervous too. Her blog and her home are so beautiful and she is so creative and sweet...but as i read through her blog i found we had a love for the same things.
ALice even posted a comment on my blog telling me to NOT go to her blog as she has posted pics of what she made me , LOL, it was hard to stay away but i did it! Yay now ive got them i can pop on over and see what she's been up to :)

Ok piccies now ( i tend to rabbit on dont i...)

THE MOST PRECIOUS TUSSIE EVER...she's a lil' Snow Angel. Look at the work that went into her. I have hung her in my entry way off my old phone.

A gorgeous mixed media hanging that is hanging off one of my Gail prints at the moment but i think i shall move it into my bedroom and hang it from my dressing table mirror :)
It's so pretty and sooo me.

Alice i just adore what you made for me. You are so talented and lovely.
You can visit Alice here at her blog and here at her website.

I also have to thank and send big hugs to Kerryanne for hosting this awesome swap.We are amongst some truly talented and passionate ladies in blog land and i for one am so proud to have made friends with so many of you. So Kerryanne THANKYOU EVER SO MUCH for this swap.xxoo.

I also want to mention someone else who is very precious to dear and crazy friend Mandii @ Shabby Vintage Dreams. Mandii and i have been friends for a few years now, we 'met' via Ebay and im sooo glad we did! She's just the best ever! We email, text message and phone all the time, we 'get' each other (and it helps that we're both just a little nuts too) LOL.
ANYHOOOO....Mands has recently started blogging so pop on over and say hello to her and peek at her beautiful lamps, furniture, faux cakes etc etc, she is awesomely talented (and NEVER gives herself the credit she deserves).
Just click here and you're off to her blog!(Luv Ya Wench xxoo).

Okies....i think i am done now.
Thanks for sticking with me ,LOL, it was longer than i anticipated.

I am now off to do some much needed blog hopping!

Bunches of Pink Hugs,
Shann xo

Hi Shannon! Bet Sam is getting very excited about Christmas. Cruise received a letter back from Santa today and just couldn't believe it!! The bribery about Santa not coming is working very well in our house at the moment, but it will be all over soon! I will have to think of something else to use haha.
