A few of my favorite things....


 I always have a hard time taking down the tree and decorations....
I fall in love with our tree every year (except one, the leaning tree from hell)  This year was hard because I didn't feel well the whole holiday season, first from an upper repiratory infection and then a sinus infection and then I got sick from the meds!  They literally put me in bed...Uggh! That pretty tree kept me going!

So since I didn't really have a life to talk about this Christmas, I thought I would share my 2 favorite gifts....
First, a darling coin purse from my kids....my girl knows where to shop for me! (etsy)

 I just love the floral and checks!

My second favorite gift was made by my friend Robin and given to me by my cute hubby.  They conspired together to give me something I would love.... a beautiful wrap bracelet....



Here it is on....





Well, I have undecked the halls, now to vacuum, dust and rest some more!  I hope your holidays were happy and you are looking forward to a wonderful year!

Glad you're on the road to recovery and feeling better... we too had a rough end of year and so our Christmas is still up so we can Enjoy it properly. This year it was simplified and so there won't be that much to take down and put away anyway... and I'm in no hurry since I Love the Ambiance it has given the room. Your Gifts are Lovely, it's always so Special to receive such Thoughtful Gifts that are well chosen, I too was fortunate to receive Wonderful Gifts this year that I just J'Adore!

Happy New Year from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
