My Gifts and more.....

Thought I would share my Christmas gifts with all of you. The White Diamonds perfume ,along with the Teddy bear that came with it are from my daughter Kathy and her family. The wonderful smelling candle jar from Bed,Bath and Beyond was a gift from my son Thomas and his family. Of course,I have shared with you already that my daughter Regina and her family bought me a new camera for Christmas. I am still learning much about it,but I did take these pictures with it. Its a Nikon CoolPix S3300. So much more better than the old HP I had.

My mama and daddy gave me these pretty crocheted potholders along with some other things. Then these sweet embroidered  dishcloths were a gift from my dear blogging friend,Linda...from Parker's Paradise.
 I was so surprised when they came in the mail. I hung them up in my little kitchen. Aren't they adorable?

I received so many pretty greeting cards over the holidays. There were some from blogging friends... thanks so much ladies. You know,I had a smile while reading each one! These two below were my favorites so,I decided to leave them up a while longer to enjoy.

Now this little guy I picked up for myself while I was out with a friend. I found him at Target for $2.00. I believe he was my only purchase from there. I think I will call him Randell  :) What do you think?

I have packed away almost all the Christmas decor,but my little tree is still up with a few other little things sitting around,but things are getting pretty much back to normal in the way of decor here in my home.
There will always be a little room for a few Teddies about,and dolls of course!

I do pray this flu does n't stay with me long....I felt like staying in the bed all day,but thought being up ,moving about would make me feel a bit better. Have a wonderful New Year's! I won't be doing much bed with a good book most likely :)
