Gifts for the New Year

I wanted to start out the first White Wednesday post of the New year by sharing some goodies that I won a month or two ago in blog giveaways. I won this dreamcatcher from Ozma of Odds. I hung it beside my bed on the closet curtain rod. {Yes I have curtains instead of doors on my closet} When we moved into this house in 1982 it had no doors and still has none. That is progress huh? lol. Hubby wants to move our bedroom upstairs and gut this room and start over, but I just don't know if I have it in me to start this project. Sounds like a lot of work to me.  :)

Don't you think it goes well with my DREAM glitter banner that hangs on a large mirror over our bed?

Rosemary added many little details to this beauty.  Much prettier than any dream catcher that I have ever seen.

Feathers, lace, ribbon, wire, beads...wonderful.
I have shown this lavender sachet before, but just had to include it because I still love it!


Thank you so much Rosemary!! You do beautiful work and I am blessed to own a few pieces.
I also won this cute white stepstool from Circle Creek Home. They make three different styles and this is the one I chose. Are you surprised that I wanted it in WHITE? :)
I still have not removed the tags that were tied on it when it arrived. My granddaughter Annika used the stool a few days ago so she could get up to the sink in the bathroom to wash her hands.  It is going to be very useful. Thank you Circle Creek Home!

Joining up with Kathleen today for the first White Wednesday of the New Year!! Can't wait to see what this year has in store. I just listened to the author of One Thousand Gifts on our christian radio station...I want to work on a gratitude journal this year...how about you? What plans do you have?

{curtains are actually Simply Shabby Chic shower curtains from Target in gray and white...love them! Sorry the photos aren't brighter. The lighting here is not good at all in the winter. I should have lightened them up for you}

Love your post, what a great dream catcher. And I agree the gutting of the bedroom is a lot of work, but then again, you might get doors. I need curtain rods up, it's been way too long without curtains in my living room, good thing my neighbors aren't nosy, and there is a big tree.

I like all the things you won very much especially the dream catcher.Its a great idea to make it. About the weather, its wintertime but not if I look out of the window. Its raining and the wind blows very hard, its to warm for the time of the year. I wish we had some snow over here. Love Petra
