The Christmas In July Fairy Was Here!

 Yesterday the FedEx guy game to the door with a box. Oh Yay! My X-Mas In July is here I thought. When Angie brought the box into the living room I was so confused! It was literally the size of the ottoman in front of the couch! Did Chris (of Perfectly Printed) send an actual Christmas Tree? LOL
 Inside were package upon package...and then more packages. I think I was in some sort of haze or something as I opened them...just total disbelief that she had sent me this much stuff!
 Shiny Brites, bells with glass beads, and this beautiful pink and white x-mas stocking.
Hard to tell, but there are 3 really cute silver sleighs, and I will cherish the trio of mercury glass candles too! I've only seen them online. Ohh! This pink fluffy tree is so sweet, and I'm thinking it will be perfect as a new body for the Holt Howard angel tree topper that I found a couple weeks ago!
 Three red deer, super cute tree picks, vintage paper plates, coasters, and even three rolls of x-mas tape! I've never come across the tape before either!
 Two more stockings! What?? 
 I already held the puppy one up in front of my mantel to get a preview! Sooo sweet!
Somehow Chris knew that I was on the hunt for foil light reflectors! Bulbs that I can actually use, and beautiful x-mas cards! Shouldn't we have been done about 3 pics ago? But keeps coming!
 This big mailbox was full of fun little things! Super cute cloth napkins, books, and funky coasters!
 I collect old x-mas card boxes, and this one with the holly leaves is so pretty! Plus it was filled with x-mas seals...something else I collect.
And then there is this sheer red apron with a x-mas tree pocket! Could it be any sweeter? And could Chris be any sweeter and GENEROUS?
I don't think I deserve this many wonderful x-mas things, but I love it all! And I appreciate each and every little thing that you sent Miss Chris!
Thank You to everyone who joined my swap! I hope you had a ton of fun!
Erica :)
Merry X-Mas In July Y'all!  -W

  10. What a sweet friend to send you such awsome vintage goodies! We have a red flocked deer with silver antlers just like that. Well, I should say I used to have one, but my daughter LOVED it and took it off to college with her. So it belongs to her now . :-) I love that she loves quirky stuff.

    I received my sweet doll. I just love her. The mail lady (rural delivery) put the box in the middle of our driveway. I didn't even notice it until after a 3 " rain. But you wrapped her very well. She was safe and sound. Anywhooo, she is wonderful. Thanks.
