Christmas In July Swap

I was so excited to receive a parcel from my secret santa in a Christmas in July swap I participated recently. I had to guess who was my secret santa and it was just too easy. Jules! I could tell from the get go by her handwriting on the parcel lol!

She added gorgeous embellishments to this pretty wooden box including my name on the top.

Peter Alexander Doughnuts that I coveted around Christmas time last year. Jullie remembered and sent them to me in this swap! I have put them under the glass of my coffee table.

Little blue velvet bird. I have a "thing" for bird decorations. You can see some of the decorations on the box a little better in this picture.

Vintage china basket which I am using on my desk to hold some of the tags Jullie made for me.

Cute pink teddy, candle, soap, silk corsage and inspiration tags.

My fave, the doughnuts in close up!
Thanks so much Jullie, you are such a sweetheart!
