My Christmas and birthday gifts i received

This is what it was like here this morning at 7.30a.m.It snowed yesterday from 5.30 until 2.30p.m,then it was all slushy,but during the night the frost came down and at 7.30 a.m. it started snowing is still snowing and its now 10.00 a.m so i am house bound for the day so i thought i would show you pictures of the lovley presents i received from my prim friend Diane from Wherefoxglovesgrow.blogspot.for my christmas and birthday which was on the 3rd of Feb.
Diane sprayed the basket gathered the cones and made the hearts and the pears i had been wanting pears after seeing them in Rondells home.

These are just a few of the goodies for my birthday a couple of panels to sew and a jar of pot cinnamon and spices for christmas. and heart tea light holders sory the pictures are not that clear.

I just love the heart holder i am going use that to hold picrures of my grandson,and i hope to find a nice house plant to go in the wire basket.Diane found the bells and tree in a christmas shop before christmas.Diane and i buy prim itmes when we find them as they are so hard to find here.

The halloween cat came from the states,Diane also mead the pear and i also love wooden bobbins.The little boxes are so cute i just love them to.

Diane sewed the cushions,made the sheep garland and the halloween stocking.

The green cat came from the states and she made the one with the red check dress, i can't wait to display all of my goodies at halloween time.

The cat was also handmade.I have been so lucky this christmas and birthday,i will post more pictures of other goodies i received from friends and family, i am so grateful to everyone who has taken time to make and put a lot of thought into all my gifts.Thak you to all my friends.Well i am of to shovel the snow from the steps.And i might even post again later.Take care~Kate~
