I always like receiving mail (if anyone wants a penpal, I'm your girl) and yesterday the best kind arrived, a parcel just for me. I partcipated in Christina's ornament swap and my first ornament arrived from Jen. The package contained the cutest knitted mitten ornaments and some lovely vintage bits and bobs. Now I think that this is Jen's blog but I could be wrong but if I am, that's ok because I like this new to me blog just fine.

My mailbox was busy again today, it is that time of year I guess. This year I took part in a Christmas card exchange and this was the first of my four cards to arrive. All the way from the UK.
I was quite excited because although everyone else in the house has an advent calendar, I have never had one. The girls have three each, one homemade, one with the little chocolates in it and one cardboard sticker one. Tom has two (19 isn't too old apparently), a Star Wars LEGO one and a homemade chocolate one and Tim has one which I made with envelopes holding little chocolates and a note for an activity for each day. Tim's is the best, it has things like back massages, facials and other pampering goodness (no wonder he likes this time of year). So now I have my very own advent card and I have opened up 5 windows on the most gorgeous houses, I just want to step right into the card. It really doesn't take much to make my heart sing.
Fiona is talking about handmade Christmas gifts every Wednesday so I am linking up there today. I have much to do for my handmade gifts so I best get cracking before school finishes up for the year.
I hope your letter box is filled with good things today too.
