Misc. Monday Post and Giving Thanks!!

I managed to finally finish the stitching on this piece that I started a few years ago. It won't be finished in time for this holiday season but a good start for next year! I couldn't get all the deer in one photo without it just looking blah so trust me Rudolph is up front leading the way.

In my previous post I showed french vanilla marshmallows and received comments and emails asking where I got them. They were purchased at my local Wal-Mart. This morning I made an early morning run for some groceries and found gingerbread and peppermint ones too! If your on the hunt for them I can tell you these were not near the regular marshmallow aisle but rather in boxes in the middle of the aisle in dairy. I honestly think this is the only place they found to put them. If you don't see them ask one of the employees. I'm guessing they likely have moved them a dozen times or so!

My mailbox has been so much fun checking these past weeks. I've got a nice little stack of gifts to open on Thursday and on Christmas from several wonderful blog friends. Two of my blog friends told me to open their gifts now and not to wait.

These sweet little gifts were made from the heart and hands of Sandie. She has been such a joy getting to know through our blogs and emails exchanged. Thank you dear friend!

Sue sent this little quilt for no particular reason as a just because she thought of me. I think just being thought of is a gift in itself. Sue's redwork embroidery is wonderful and such a treasure. Thanks Sue!!

I just bought the peppermint marshmallows today. Have you see the chocolate marshmallows? I didn't have time to make homemade marshmallows this year so store bought will have to suffice.

Not usually a big marshmallow fan, but I'd even be willing to float some of these fun, festive mallows in my cocoa!
You have been getting fun mail. People obviously love you.
That little stitchery piece is a cutie! I love the deep colors, and the design is so appropriate!
Merry Christmas to you!
