Last days of the Advent Calendar & Christmas Swap

Here are the last few days of gifts I received from my Advent calendar swap with Susanna.

Yay! Now I can make some baskets!

A cute little dog and a jar of doggy treats!

A beautifully woven basket.

The cutest cabinet, a gorgeous candle wreath and Christmas books.

Thank you Susanna for making this the most fun December ever! It was very odd not waking up to open something on boxing day, Liberty misses it too!

And this beautiful angel is the gift I received from Caterina as part of the Christmas swap arranged by Rosanna.
Thank you Caterina!
