Secret Santa Soiree

This year I participated in the Secret Santa Soiree hosted by the lovely Georgie at Decisionally Challenged.
Well, my packaged arrived! What great gifts I received!
I really want to thank my secret Santa for the wonderful gifts, and the thought and care that went into the gift.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
And Merry Christmas to You and Your Family!

I was like a kid when the box came. I could not wait to get it into the house and take a peek inside.
What a lucky girl I am! :o)

Here's what was inside:

First, a Christmas card with very sweet greetings inside:




Next, a box of beautiful pink rose soaps. These are so pretty, they look like paper roses, but are soaps. Just peel a petal off and use. They are sweet pea scented...yum! They smell divine!



Then, yankee candles in delicious scents... I LOVE them!
Double yum!


The sweetest 2009 snowman ornament from a church fair . It was boxed in a snowman tin...wonderful! This guy has a prominent place on our Christmas tree already!

Wait, there's more...
A Christmas sack filled with...


Yummy chocolate treats!!
Now located in a safe hiding place away from little hands and big hubby hands !



Oh my! This very beautiful pink rose dish.
Now how did my Secret Santa know I have a thing for pink roses??!!! Hmmm...
This is so very pretty and I will treasure it forever.
I especially love the open work around the rim..oooh ahhh!!


And finally, a wonderful Mary Engelbreit Christmas Journal. I love this. Family , tradition and making beautiful memories for my Children are so important to me. This journal will make a lovely keepsake for so many Christmas' to come.

So, now you see why I say I am a lucky girl! :o)



I love all of my sweet gifts!!
Thank you Secret Santa from the bottom of my heart!!
Have a very Merry Christmas!!

Love that rose soap! Way cool that you can pick off a petal to use.

That plate is gorgeous with the trim work around it. Your Secret Santa really picked some GREAT gifts for you.

That Chocolate Goodness would be hid at my house too :)
