Brown paper packages...




Brown paper packages tied up with string. These are just a few of my favorite things.This weekend I added a little holiday cheer to the cottage considering I will be spending way too much time in there from now till Christmas. I almost feel like Im in Santas workshop while Im working in the cottage. Christmas music now fills the air and I think my cottage friends like it just fine.
Speaking of cottage friends... Kaylee came home with a very tiny bundle of joy. Please meet our newest member to the cottage...her name is Heidi Ray (she is not a kitty but a very tiny puppy). She has already found her place nestled in while I work. Alley is loving on her just fine but Lola is having a rough time getting used to her being the new baby. Im sure she will adjust after some time and special kitty treats.
    Guess you may be wondering who the winner is for the giveaway last week. I'm off to do that now and will announce it soon. Thank all of you for being so kind and helping me out. You guys rock..really~

  28. Hi there! My first time here to visit. Heidi is a sweet little puppy - makes me what to hold her warm little body. Looks like she made her self right at home very quickly.

    Look around at a few past posts and decided to follow...

  36. I LOVE a brown paper package! Who doesn't! You've hit on all my favorites...well, except the people in my life...
    To be in my own winter-ized cottage, crafting away, with Christmas music playing?! Be still my beating heart! Lucky you.
    The kitten/puppy looks adorable, and I'm not even an animal lover (well I love them, I just have enough babies of the human variety that take up all my time first!).
