{ More Amazing Friends }

I'm not sure what I did to deserve this but, take a look...

Wow, right? My friends, Lisa & Victoria, gave this beautiful wreath to me last week & I'm in love with it.

Have I mentioned how much I love vintage ornaments?

When I opened it, I actually clapped my hands and squealed, "Yay!"

I am crazy about the Santa ornaments in it. It.Is.Perfect!!!

Thank you, Lisa for wanting me to have this & knowing me so well that you knew I would love it. And thank you, Victoria, for being so very talented & willing to spend the little "free" time that you have creating this masterpiece.

Vic is amazing! And she really didn't even have enough time to sleep last week. So, it was really her you need to thank!

I'm new to your adorable blog.
This vintage ornament wreath is beautiful. What a wonderful gift of the heart.

I appreciated the tips on the cute holiday gifts for neighbors and friends. I think your tags really completed the packaging.

Sweet Christmas Wishes,
Sara

It is a beautiful wreath. The variety of red ornaments has a wonderful effect. I would not have thought to use one color, what a wonderful effect.

I love the Santas. One of my favorite ornaments as a child was a Santa face.

Jeanneoli said...

Linda said...

Love your wreath!!!!!! Do you think you could find out where your friend got it so I could get one?? Thanks

What good friends! I love vintage ornaments too! I love your new wreath, and the fact that friends made it, makes it even better!

Victoria said...

Aww, shucks, Jamie... I'm glad you loved it so much. I have been wanting to make you one for a couple of years because I know how much you have been wanting one. The vintage Santas were fun to collect for this one. It is just fun to look at all the different ornaments, isn't it? Love you!

Lisa--aka The Gardenweasel said...

You commenters would have to be as awesome as Jamie....to get a wreath from Vic. Jamie and Vic are pretty awesome.....

Although, if I didn't know James, I might hate her a little bit since she is so beautiful, smart, AND she can organize and decorate! Instead, I am just glad she is my friend! Way to be so crafty James! I am thinking of spending less time organizing (hard to do), less time decorating (again, do I do that?), and less time doing creative little homey things.

Okay, who am I kidding!? I don't decorate, create homey touches, or really keep a good record of me and the kids. I am a little more ADD. I am embracing it.

wait, was that something shiny?
