I don't have much of anything interesting to say tonight, but I just found these pictures I took right after Christmas of two of my favourite gifts. Really there are so many more, like the wonderful yellow cardigan my Mom bought me and the baking stuff that my Sister bought for me, but I guess these were the only two I was able to get any decent shots of....
I won't go into too much detail as the pictures do most of the explaining, but the sewing machine is a 1948 Singer model which Mike got for me and his stepdad place into this perfect little sewing table! That sewing chair with the perfect red rose print on it is something my parents inherited when my Granny passed away, and now it is in my room!
As for that everything-I've-ever-dreamed-of Mary Poppins sized carpet bag, well it was a gift from Mike's Mom, Marie-Andree. She combined it with some very clever Mary Poppins quotes and even included a hint as to what Mike's gift might be....it ended up being a coat stand, which she had tried to somehow wrap in the bag, so I could pull it out like M.P., but it didn't work so well without the whole magical aspect, so she hid it under the stairs!
It was a wonderful Christmas! I'll really have to take some pictures of me carrying that bag so you can get an idea just how large it really is. It seems strange that I don't already have any pictures of me carrying it, since I take it with me absolutely everywhere and get comments on it every single day!
