Happy February and Packages!

Hi everyone and a very happy Wednesday 1st February to you! As my hubby reminded me, that one twelfth of the year 2012 gone already! Now that makes you realise how time flies!

Today I was so excited when I got home from town to see TWO packages tucked into my porch - very appropriate as one was from Steph of Front Porch Primitives - it was her giveaway package! Yaay I wasted no time opening it up and knew the perfect place to display this oh-so-cute prim stump doll in a sweet hanging pouch all handmade by Steph! Thanks so much Steph - I love this so much!
Here she is!

I hung it on the little cupboard in the corner of my kitchen/family room and where I decorated the little tree for Valentines Day.

The other parcel on my doorstep was something I bought myself from one of the few primitive online stores in the UK. I knew it would be just right hanging on the door of my little wall cupboard and the taper light came too! Don't you think it's just the ticket?

I'm lovin' the overall prim look here! It takes a while but it will need a few more bits n' pieces!
It's time to make tea now for my hungry growing kids but I thank you all for your comments and company! It's good to know you're there!
Have a great week and I'll be back in a couple of days with a new pattern!
Best wishes

    Thanks for the kind comment. I am feeling quite pleased with my blog home and have been stitching like a mad woman ;-)

  20. I wanted to say thank you for following my blog! I look for ward to many more hellos from you since you are very far away i find it very interesting! I love that blog that you have going. You are very talented and your cross stitching is remarkable! I also adore your little groupings around your house and your hallway decorating during Christmas is right up my alley you did a great job. I also have the same hallway layout and you did a great job inspiring me to decorate a different way! I hope you have a great day and that the great Lord blesses you in many more ways!!! N.JOY!!
