Don't tell Santa!

Hello friends
Today's post is one of thanks.
Some parcels arrived in the post this week - addressed to me, family, Bella and cats....
I could not resist opening them!
Bella even got her own tag! It features the gorgeous reindeer from Frosty Forms.
If this picture had audio you would hear my eldest son explaining in a rather unmanly
high pitched voice..."Bella you have a pressie!"
Bella responded perfectly!
With just a little help with the unwrapping...
Mmmmm I see treats!
And they taste lovely!
But that wasn't all...another beautiful tag (Layered Poinsettia - this person knows me well!)
And...WOW what a gift - these are hand warmers, hand knitted from Alpaca wool!
The very lovely Kathy had made these for me - she spins the wool too!
Kathy runs Cherwell Leys Alpacas and we have become friends through my blog and emails.
Look at that elegant tag featuring an Alpaca and cut/embossed from 2012 Heirloom Ornaments
And here I am modelling them.  Not a full shot otherwise you would have seen me in my PJ's!
Kathy also made this stunning card too - so much time and work has gone into everything.
Kathy - I am so grateful, very touched and I will treasure these items.
I read a very appropriate quote recently:
"The most genuine acts of kindness are done without fanfare and when no one is looking."
I'm back tomorrow.  
Take care friends.

Hi Christine
What lovely gifts, Bella looked really pleased with hers. I am sure you will get loads of wear out of the hand warmers. Very posh in Alpaca wool, how lovely, and so warm. (I adore Alpacas)
