A Special Gift

Today was a good mail day.  I love when my mailman stops the truck and comes to the door with a great package.  

Today  mail man Jim brought up this lovely package from Jo at Annie's Attic Designs.


Jo gifted me this pretty white tulle wreath that she handmade.  It is gorgeous.  She used vintage ornaments to adorn the tulle.  Jo told me the top ornament was one that her dad use to put on his tree.  Love that she re loves precious vintage pieces into her beautiful creations.


I have been trying this pretty wreath out in a couple of places.  I like it on the old vintage cabinet door in my kitchen.

The vintage ornaments hanging on this pretty wreath just make it special.



We have been getting lots of rain which is always a challenge to get good pictures.    I did not have good natural light to really show off this wreath so I hung it on my french doors going outside.   This way you could see the pretty tulle and the gorgeous vintage bell ornament that Jo added that was her fathers.








Inside the box was another beautiful creation from Jo.  This framed hugs and kisses Christmas Tree made out of vintage bits and bobbles.  Just gorgeous pieces used to make this pretty framed tree.





It looks so pretty hung by my entry way tree.  Thank you sweet Jo.  I love both the wreath and framed X's and O's framed tree.  I will cherish them both.

I wanted to do this post not only to show you the sweet and beautiful gifts sent to me by Jo but to thank her by giving a shout out of her Etsy shop.  Please hop over to Jo's Etsy shop and take a look at all her beautiful creations she has for sale.

There are just so many wonderfully talented friends out there in blog land.  Jo is one of the sweetest and has a big heart.  Thank you Jo.  Love these beautiful treasures you gifted me.

Have a great rest of the week everyone.  Come back on Saturday to meet another wonderful blogger in Spotlight.

  18. What a lovely wreath and it fits perfect at your house.

    I am thinking of bringing all my Christmas stuff down to the guest room today. I don't decorate until the day after Thanksgiving, but my cousin had to back out of her visit so the room is empty and I can get an idea of what to use.
