Monday I met up with Cammy and Hope for lunch for a little Christmas cheer. It was one of those days I will cherish for a long long time. We met for coffee and then it was off to lunch at The Tasting Room where we exchanged gifts, had some delicious food and leisurely shared each other's company.
Hope's gift to me is simple amazing! A beautiful mug from Anthropologie filled with fun goodies that are so Me. She knows I have a thing for buttons and inside the mug was a beautiful pouch full of old buttons from French General. Also a small box of beads were tucked inside. (Notice the vintage ladybugs beads?)
Hope also made address labels which I absolutely love.

Cammy's gift to me is so wonderful as well--it makes me giddy every time I look at it.
She made this oh so beautiful, amazing stocking from a felted wool sweater and lace with vintage baubles and millinery. I absolutely love the colors--- it has Kelli written all over it!

Inside the stocking I found all of these over the top goodies! Things that make a girl like me happy!

My gifts to Cammy and Hope were scarves that I crocheted in colors they love. I had so much fun working on them. I hope the scarves keep them warm for years to come!
I have all my gifts spread out on the table, just so I can look at them every time I walk by. I love them so much, but most of all, and what really matters, are the wonderful women from which they came.
Thank you Cammy and Hope. Thank you for your gifts, and for your friendship.
I love ya, and Merry Christmas to you both!
And Merry Christmas to each and every one of you. My wish is for all of you to have a very blessed day with the ones you love.
