*~Happy New Year to you all!~*

What a exciting way to start the new year!
Look what arrived in my mailbox, - a R.A.K! (random act of kindness) And, it was from Nathalie who knows how much I adore anything vintage!

And tucked inside were these 2 darlings! A sewing Susan, and a pair of embroidery scissors!

Thanks Nathalie, but talk about a tease! Look what else was tucked inside the envelope!
These 2 beauties are for next years Christmas advent calender! Just how cool is that? You might remember my advent calender from a few posts ago, with all the little bags on it. Well Nathalie thinks I should start filling those wee bags now, so when Christmas rolls around next year I am in for a treat indeed!! I will have to hide these away so they don't become a temptation! :) Pretty cool idea thanks Nathalie!

I hope all my blogging friends have a special start to the new year.
Here's to exciting treasures and creative goodness!

Ha!I'm glad you posted the numbers on the packages. I forgot what I "days" I had sent you (plan to send more in future packages). More teasing until next Christmas!

Hahaha- my verification word is "chili". A hot dish made of meat and beans. Could use a pot of it today. :)
