Ornie Swap goodies and Christmas Decorating

I recently participated in the Prim Pals 2nd Christmas Ornie Swap.  I received them yesterday and they are even better than last year.  Thank you, Debbie K,  Melanie K, Kookie, Tammy R., Kim,  Debbie G., Jan and Ginny and Jody.

 I finally (just about) finishing decorating the living room.  We are having our first really cold weather, so I have a fire going tonight. You'll notice the package under the tree, it kind of stands out, my son (who is almost 20) picked out Spongebob Squarepants wrapping paper for his presents this year.
 I also ordered another elf to match the one I got from Darlene, I got him today, the one on the top, from Kat's Country Prims .  I love my little elves.  I also bought the pattern for Sheldon the elf from Kat's Country Prims too.  Not sure about those eyes though, may have to come up with a different style for mine.
 This is the Santa I won on EBAY after Christmas for $25.00.
 My Santa, I decided to keep him, I made him using a Sweet Meadows Farm pattern.
Some of my Santa collection.  Notice the vanilla candle, it is one of the flameless wax candle that are everywhere this year.  I had bought one earlier and paid $6.00 and it was on sale.  I was in Family Dollar and they had them from $2.00, and it is vanilla scented and you can actually smell the vanilla.  They look and feel just like wax and take 2 AAA batteries.  I need to make a run and pick up some more, thinking how to use them next year.
I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to drop by my friend, Darlene's new blog.  I am hoping to start on some new designs soon, got a few more orders to do.  We are going to the craft show at the O'Connell Center in Gainesville, this weekend and finish our shopping.
Don't forget to sign up for my give-away, the Raggedy Ann and sock monkey print fabric.  Just click on the picture on the right hand side.
Have a great week, Cyndy

 Hope everyone has a great week.  Cyndy
