It Has Been Too Long

I received this beautiful teapot and sugar and creamer from Melanie for my Birthday, I love it.  I love roses and the colors are so beautiful, thank you so much Melanie, you are such a dear friend.

I received this beautiful bag from Marti and Lorraine, they made it together, it was such a surprise, it is so beautiful and Lorraine filled the bag with beautiful treats, a silver compact picture frame, note pad and perfume and also a sweet little mercury glass heart.  Thank you so much Marti and Lorraine, you both were so sweet and it was such a wonderful Christmas surprise.

I received this beautiful teacup times 2 from Jody, she is such a dear friend, she lives in WA near my son and I am hoping to some day meet her, she is just the sweetest friend.  I always love receiving anything from her, it is always a treat.  Thank you so much Jody.

I received this beautiful bag from Melanie for Christmas, I just love it.  She also sent me candy, beautiful present earrings and a wonderful charlotte doll, I hung her on my tree, but I am keeping her out all year.  Thank you so much Melanie, you are so sweet.

It has been too long since my last post, I had been very busy getting ready for Christmas, I was so excited, both son's were coming home not for Christmas, but a couple of days later, which was so wonderful, we were just delaying our Christmas.  I was busy baking and making candy and planning out meals.  Well the day before Christmas I went grocery shopping where I caught the flu, I am always so careful and use the wipes when I enter the store and exit the store, but the day after Christmas I got so sick.  It seems like a blur to me now, we had a full house and I felt so bad, it is not what I was hoping for Christmas. The good news is I went through 2 bottles of antibacterial soap and no one else got it.  It has taken me a few weeks to feel good again and last weekend we got the Christmas things put away.  I received some beautiful gifts and I feel bad that it has taken me so long to show them.  Thank you so much ladies, you really made my holidays  so wonderful and are such wonderful friends.  Thank you for visiting me today.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Hugs, Terri

Hello Terri,
I am so glad to hear you are feeling better. I am sorry your Christmas was not what you expected, I too had the same experience. It was a big season for the flu. Good that you had your son's home to visit! Yay!
Wonderful gifts from your dear friends!
I hope this year is a really great year for you.

Thank you for getting back to me, Terri. Hope you feel better soon.
I probably won't be able to be in the Marie Antoinette Mail Art group, now that I think of it, I will be hard pressed to participate as my aged mother is needing her family more and more so my time is limited for fun stuff! But I will enjoy viewing on your blog photos of what the group creates.
Thank you!

There was no avoiding the flu this year! Sorry it caught up with you at the holiday time.

I'm sory you got 'flu for Christmas! It seemed like a popular present this year, unfortunately. You got some lovely stuff too, though. I see a theme in the tea service pieces. What a lovely idea, to have all flowery patterns blending together!
