Joy, Chocolate & Pink Santas


I feel like I have been holding my breath for two weeks. My sweet daughter-in-law had her surgery today. They removed part of her intestines, appendix and nodes. The surgeon is quite sure they got everything but the biopsy report on Wednesday will tell us 100% for sure.....joy, joy joy! A heart felt thank you to all of you beautiful bloggers for your concern, thoughts and prayers.

Trying to keep myself busy, not counting housework... ugh...(grin), I have been making gift tags for my web shop using vintage bits and pieces . My latest ones I made from images of my antique Christmas post cards. One of my favorites is the pink and soft green Santa. I am having so much fun making these tags. If you love the shabby Parisian theme I have some for you. If you love the vintage theme, I have those too. Love birds nest? I have those too.

And a reminder. If you haven't signed up for my Give-Away I hope you will. I am doing a goodie box of Virginia made products. Hint...hint....chocolate. Ah yes...there is the most wonderful little chocolatier shop near my home. Talk about eye candy...going to that shop is pure delight. Just leave a comment on my Gratitude post. The drawing will be Nov. 23rd, the day after Thanksgiving. Hugs to all ~ Lynn
