[Izzy, Ellie and Brooke]

Everyone headed for home just before midnight.   The bustling house was suddenly quiet.

Today was spent leisurely.  Below are gifts I received for Christmas.

A gift card from Sur la table and mug.

Yummy herbal tea and another gift card from Sur la table.  Can't wait to go shopping.  Love that store!  I'm sipping the Rooibos tea flavored with mango, passion fruit and papaya as I type. Yummy!

 ~ Handmade card from Isabella ~

I'll be doing some shopping at Barnes & Noble too!

Inside this cute Mary Engelbreit gift box was some beautiful jewelry - perfect for wearing to a Downton Abbey tea! 

And last but certainly not least, blue and white miniature teacups and teapot.

Thanks to everyone for a very Merry Christmas!


  1. Those are great gifts, and the best gift is time with your family all together.

  2. Sounds like more wonderful memories were created, and I enjoyed seeing your gifts! It reminded me I haven't been to the Sur La Table store in Atlanta in a while. (Dare I?)
