Stocking Stuffed & Unstuffed

What a wonderful experience to participate in the Stocking Stuffer Swap organized by Leah of Our Yellow House. I found myself anticipating the arrival of the post each day. Throughout December, I'd open my mailbox to find a sweet homemade surprise, eight in total. It felt like, well, Christmas.

It took a great deal of self-restraint to wait until the 25th to share these wonderful gifts.

A hand knit and felted mushroom from Nap Knits.

The pirate eye patch and beard from Going to Graceland.

(Starting lower left & moving counterclockwise) The lavender eye pillow from Little Bird, the handmade books from Ex Libris Handmade, the knitted tomato, carrot and felted acorns from Like It or Lump It, Thimbleberry Kitschen's cupcake bath bomb, Leah's sweet doll and the beautiful wooden puzzle/toy from On Being a Farm Wife. I could barely snap this photo before my sons pulled them back into their play.

Thank you to everyone for your thoughtfulness and generosity. And special thanks again to Leah for organizing this swap.

Time to get back to playing.
