This afternoon our fabulous UPS driver trudged up our very long, very steep, and very snowy driveway in our very frigid temperature to deliver a Christmas gift; and with a big smile on his face. My dear daughter sent me a complete boxed collector set of Harry Potter! I have seen most of the movies, some of them several times, but longed to read the books. And now I can! I plan to take the first two on vacation with me. That skinny brown thing on the far right side is a folder of stickers with which to decorate my trunk. Which of course I immediately did. Thank you Erin! You are the best!

For the child in all of us!! Love the trunk the books come in - and with stickers too!!!
I like your dying project - the clothes have taken on a whole new life - and the elephant puzzle is wonderful!!!

Oh I love that trunk too! What fun for the kid in all of us. The dyeing projects are really great. I love bright colors and they just make me smile when I look at them. I agree with you on the puzzles; that baby elephant is just too cute. I hope he makes one for me!

What a wonderful gift! And it's good to see the "family tradition" carried on, of spreading Christmas into January. I do it all the time!

Ha ha! You are the funny one! Of course, now that you are retired, you will be able to complete all holiday things in a timely manner, right? :)
