A Christmas Treat in August

A few weeks ago Michelle from lifeonthisgoodday hosted a Christmas in July blog party and had a wonderful giveaway. I was lucky enough to win one of your fabulous prizes (She gave 3 different items away).
Look at the amazing goodies I got. See the vintage doll head pick?
She was even nice enough to contact the winners to find our their color preferences. Isn't she just the best!! She is such an amazingly talented artist and such a sweet and wonderful person.
So, anyway, after I won, I couldn't wait. I got so excited!! I checked the mail everyday full of anticipation. It came yesterday!! Yeah!!
25 for Christmas Day!!
I was able to calm myself enough to grab the camera and take a few pictures.
This is how beautifully packaged it arrived. I did not want to open it, but, I sooooo wanted to open it. Well, of course, I opened it!!

Love, love, love the Reindeer!!

Look how sweet it is all set up. I GASPED!! Even my daughters swooned a bit which is saying something because it's not always easy to impress teenagers.

Look at the yummy ribbons, some crotchet lace, and some velvet rick-rack.

So, I was torn about taking it all apart but, I had to show you everything. Then, I packaged it all back up, put it back in the cellophane bag, and thumb tacked it to my inspiration board whole. Right in front of where I sit. I am just not ready to use it yet. I'll probably grab little bits out at a time and try to make the initial package "look" last as long as possible.
Thanks again Michelle!! YOU ROCK!!
make sure you check out her blog and store. Yummy!!
