Santa visited me early, but before I tell you about that … I’d like to share that my holiday home is being featured over at Kelly’s blog, Eclectically Vintage. Kelly is featuring 4 holiday homes this weekend – one per day. Hope you check out the home tours at Kelly’s place. Now … onto the Santa story:
Forget the dreaded lump of coal … Santa said I was a good girl and sent me some cotton! That’s right. Cotton. Cotton plucked straight out of the field, and I’m in heaven. Julie at Red Head Can Decorate organized a bloggers’ Secret Santa gift exchange and my gift was a Rooster burlap pillow and soft, white cotton.
When I saw the cotton I literally squealed (not like a pig but more like a little girl).
I’ve seen cotton used in decor in some Southern homes and I love it.
Can’t find it anywhere up here in Yankee territory, much to my dismay.
It may seem silly to you Southern girls, but I was over the moon when I saw my gift.
It was like Barb had read all my comments on blogs where cotton was on display.
The little French egg cups are also from Barb, but I purchased them from her online store
She’s got wonderful goodies for sale (I think she should sell some cotton – hint hint).
There’s a number 4 egg cup but I temporarily misplaced it while taking photos of them yesterday.
And how cute is this pillow that Secret Santa Barb sent me?
If you’ve seen my home decor, you know this rooster pillow is right up my alley. Love it!!
I have the best Secret Santa ever!!
So who did I give a gift to? I was a Secret Santa to BJ over at Joy to Journey
We’re all posting our Secret Santa gifts on our blogs today.
Barb … thank you so much … from the bottom of my heart!!
