It's the most wonderful time . . .

I'm finally starting to feel more Christmas spirit. Could it be that I'm hours away from a 12 day vacation from work? Hmmm . . . that sure is a big part I bet. It's also so fun to see people on the subway toting in packages for their work friends and employees. I think I need a peppermint mocha to really push me over the holiday edge, don't you? Good thing there's a Starbucks in my building, across the street and 1 block away huh?? ;)

So as promised here is the GORGEOUS ribbon brooch Heidi sent me:



Isn't it perfect?!? She learned to make them in a class at Silver Bella. I love the colors, the sparkle, the sweet velvet ribbon, everything! I told her that I was going to run out and get one of the wonderful $5 "silk pashminas"* you can buy on the street in NYC to match.



Aren't I fancy now?? :) Included in my package was also a gift certificate to the Savers. The thrift store has gift certificates! I'm so excited to go and can't wait to show you what I find. I think as with all gift certificates one must splurge a bit.

Heidi, thank you so so much for both the lovely gift and for being such a fabulous friend!

And to all of you, who make me smile with your comments, your blogs, your creations and your wit, have a wonderful holiday! I'll be off to Charm City for a while but will definitely be online checking to see how everyone spent their Christmas and New Years.

Here's to Peace on Earth . . .

with love ~ Rebecca

* - If you get t0 NYC and see the $5 pashminas I promise you it's $5 well spent. While we all know they are far from silk they are soft and pretty and come in every color you can imagine. I have quite a few and wash them in the washer. If anyone would like one please let me know and we can swap for it in 2008!

Isn't it funny that the thrift store has gift certificates? I always tell my family they can get me those when they ask me for gift ideas, and they always look at me as though I've LOST MY MIND. LOL!

The pin looks beautiful on your coat with that scarf!

So much better than my getting ratty dark brown fleece jacket. LOL
