i'd like to also Thank my sweet French Sister, Rhonda who was my most fantastic partner in my sis, Mary Ann's Vintage Christmas Stocking Swap 2008. Look at the most wonderful gifts she gave to me and my lil' ones. Her stocking that she made for me is ABSOLUTELY DIVINE!!! I LOVE linen and French-inspired art...and she made me such a BEAUTIFUL Vintage+French inspired stocking!!! I simply adore the embellishments...the laces and the Old Santa fabric is absolutely gorgeous!!!!

Here's a lil' bit more pics of what I gave Sweet Rhonda for our Vintage Stocking Swap...






This is just one of my favourite lil' mantras that I made up one day for a couple of my pictures, also here and here a year ago...it is so true...I like to keep saying it to myself esp. when sending out sweet packages to special hearts...







Sorry for the longest posts and the gazillion pics...I just wanted to make sure that I properly showed Rhonda how much I LOVED everything she sent to me and how much I LOVED making her something really special too...She truly has spoiled me and my lil' ones-BIG TIME...

Hoping you had a GLORIOUS CHRISTMAS...
Wishing everyone an abundance of PEACE, LOVE + JOY in the upcoming new year...
here's to more BLESSINGS in 2009!!!!!

Oh Jo, what a wonderful post. I am so glad that you loved everything. But it is me who should be thanking you again and again. The girls and I just loved your gifts so, so much and all of your love literally brought tears to my eyes. The best part about all of these events though, is that I now have amazing gals like you and Mary Ann in my life, my beautiful french sister. May God bless you and your family in the new year and I look forward to many more adventures with you and Mary Ann! xoxo Rhonda...
