Gifts in collage form

We finally had Christmas with our kids this past weekend and
I was blown away  by the beautiful handmade gifts that I received.

My daughter-in-law Melissa made this gorgeous gray and silver ruffled scarf
along with the beautiful necklace. My mouth just dropped open when I opened
the gift.
 I love thoughtful gifts that people spend time on.


My daugher Amanda swiped some photos that I had taken throughout the year and she made
me these beautiful coasters!! I love them also!!

My son and daughter-in-law  {Nathan and Colette} gave me this amazing Eiffel tower canvas picture. It is
perfect for our living room.  Love it!

The photo above is just for fun. I found these adorable snowman peeps before Christmas.
I don't even like PEEPS, but had to get them for a photo shoot! I know...I am crazy! lol 

I made two batches of these cookies to take to our family Christmas and everyone loved them!
I have N.E.V.E.R. made cookies from a box until this year, but they are yummy !!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that this New Year will be your best yet.

Okay, one of my New Years resolutions is taking the time to leave more notes for my blogging friends! I always read posts in a reader and it makes it hard to leave a comment or two. But I do not miss a post! Love seeing the things you share and your lovely home. I wish I had more time to blog, but I work part time at our local library. I wanted to share with you my new blog, just opened this week.... it will be for my vingage and digital work... including printables you might enjoy. I also have my home and garden site, This week I am doing a look back to my spring garden.

Hope to be able to connect more in this new year. I am spending less time on Facebook and gave up twitter and everything else. A girl needs time to create, decorate and GARDEN ya know!

God bless....Brooke
