..i've been spoiled & more progress pics...

Lovely surprises were delivered here latey.
Here's all the way from Poland! So pity the cookie ornament didn't reach here in whole so we had eaten it and hmmm it taste really good. The ornament is so neatly stitched and perfectly finished, you had done a great job, Anna.


Here is from Spain! Edit, your sewing is sooo neat and the color of the fabric fits perfectly with the design.


...and a lovely self-made card by Nia from Portugal.

Such GORGEOUS ornaments as well as all enclosed goodies. LOVE them all!! Thank you so much; Anna, Edit & Nia for thinking of me.

The house renovations are progressing well. Only, the underfloor heating will have to wait...after six weeks, before we can turn it ON! That is sometime in FEBRUARY.
We had expected the painters to start today but they didn't turned up. That's actually one of the last to be done inside and then when it dries up we can start returning the things. Hopefully, after Christmas. Where we are staying have underfloor heating system so we are glad we could stay here till the end of December.

I hope everyone is having good start to the week. Thanks so much for visiting and all the kind comments. I really appreciate them all.

I'm really impressed with how quickly your house is coming together, Mylene! And won't that underfloor heating be nice and toasty in the winter...I wish we had done that when we remodeled. Our kitchen floor is so cold in the winter.

Lovely gifts from your friends. I hope you and your family have a delightful Christmas day :)
