Jultomte has visited here!! santa santa  A wonderful surprise Christmas package from Switzerland!! Christmas Tree

Catsworld, you are a SWEETHEART!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

Well you know the feeling of an unexpected package,  bounce  and when this arrived this week it was a much needed pleasure! There were so many goodies in the parcel...would you humor some pictures  I love you

There was this darling Trollbeads book with gorgeous illustrations. Have never seen one before. There are fairies, frogs, and dragons, mushrooms and lots of other whimsical pictures. Why it is like something out of a dream... will treasure it always.

The card is a lovely advent calendar/votive candle cover. Have to admit I quite look forward to opening the little window panes every morning!

Just love the darling images on this one...

So yes yes the beads; yes, not one but TWO treasures that I'd longed to have in my collection. . .

Had been kicking myself for not getting the OHM limited edition sugar sleigh bead (while I was "humming and hawing," who knew they'd go so fast!), but did not want to whine about it here...so HOW did she know!!

As if that was not enough (Cats, you sneaky!!) She also shared another treasure!

A christmas ornament dangle! Had never seen these irl but this is such a classic Christmas look and reminds me of my grandmother's ornaments as well as those huge christmas bulbs that are impossible to find anywhere anymore. Just love it!

The blues and pops of red on the advent calendar inspired this design...it is still not quite right...maybe w/a few tweaks, but here is a try:

OH! my kitty Little Man was not left out (Tequila will try to steal). He's such a sweet boy and needs extra love now b/c his brother Big Boy passed during the early fall. They were "dropped" off and wandered to us as wee kittens two Thanksgivings ago. (This loss has been to hard to talk about). Anyway, Man's spirits are up more now and this will help lift him!  cat  cat

This has been a tough year for everyone I'm sure. With all the international crimes and crisis and domestic turmoil here in the US...plus I teach at a university that has been very much in national news for its own tragedies. This semester has been difficult to say the least. Anyway sometimes you just go numb, you know, it's so much to absorb at once, especially lately it seems.

But this forum helps to keep the twinkle going and sense of goodness. Sorry for rambling but it can feel like such a gap sometimes between my "bead world" and the real world...sometimes I even feel silly for chasing "things"...then I remember that it's great people like those on this forum who make such a meaningful bridge; it's never about the things, but about people, and joy, and relationships.

So THANK YOU THANK YOU sweet sweet Cats!!,  Buddha  Buddha You, and sister dragons, and all the lovelies here on the forum help make the world a dream. Happy Rudolph Happy Rudolph Hug Hug Merriest Christmas to you, Cats, dear buddha of beads, and to all!!

What a very special package for you. I love the way you photographed that sugar sleigh right on top of some luscious looking berries. And then that same vibrant color showcases the wonderful ornament bead. And then a hilarious present for the cat too!
The Buddha of Beads nailed it.

ah you dear dear Plumbun, thank you so much for being a wonderful friend! So many lovely pics, sunny
I just want to say, this forum is great, and yes, this is more a magical world, it is often not like the real world outside, I am often glad there is a place to escape from reality.... Twisted Evil cat
