Pretty Presents

Monday, January 3, 2011

Ooops! It's January and I -still- haven't posted any pictures of all of my beautiful Christmas presents!
 Thank goodness,the holiday insanity has come to a close. This year wasn't as crazy as past adventures but it was still pretty rough. With Olivia being tired and cutting molars, it was interesting but I think Pj and I are a good team and we managed to keep Livvie comfy and happy without killing each other! :) Here's Olivia's new pearls *lol* I love this pic!!:





My favorite Christmas gatherings are mine and Pj's mom's houses and of course, our little Christmas- just the 3 of us. Olivia had a wonderful Christmas this year and got way more toys than I know what to do with.


This week, I sorted through toys and packed up some for the new baby and some to donate to our local Crisis Nursery, my favorite charitable organization.

Here are some of my new pretties....


new vanity containers from my momma.
pearl necklace and earrings with Coco Chanel purse mirror from my momma.


Fingerwaves book, Julia Child letters book, The Seven Year Itch, vintage galoshes and green bakelite bangle from Pj


Sew Retro book from my mother in law- really fun for beginners and more advanced seamstresses

I love some of the pics in Sew Retro- very inspriring!!

                    I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!!

  6. Your daughter is a cutie! Lovely presents too! Over the Christmas holidays I found a 1967 cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens. In perfect condition. I'm loving it,with all of the recipes,and even tips on setting the dinner table,and how to can fruits,and veggies too. Have fun reading the sewing book.

  10. I have those same galoshes! But in black. I haven't found a pair of shoes to wear with them yet. I have one pair that is a close fit, but the heel is not quite high enough and makes a weird bend in the heel of the rain shoes. They're really cute and I look forward to using them this spring. Have fun with yours!
