Vintage Thingies and SS ELF

After a whirlwind and definitely a unique Christmas, it would be nice to sit in a vintage barber's chair and get the works. Check out Coloradolady and friends at to see if Santa brought any vintage goodies.

As most of you know, around Christmas time each year, Coloradolady has her Secret Santa Soiree event for anyone wanting to be a part of Secret Santa swap. She always has several blogging participates, including myself. My Secret Santa delivered in grand style.

Bear in mind Secret Santa and Secret Santa's Elf is not the same.

I definitely have not been good enough to deserve a Secret Santa Elf visit.  However, Santa's Elf felt different. For a day or two, I was receiving packages without names.  The first package came from Oregon. This is that lovely gift.

A bar of the best smelling lavender soap ever.  Three pretty Lavender sachet bags filled with real lavender. This package was shipped from Sunset Lavender Farm in Banks, Oregon.  If you should like some of their products, I definitely recommend them. The products I got are heavenly.

The next package contained a memo pad, a pretty pin and Chick-fil-A gift card. Everything very useful and appreciated.

Next, I received this lovely top.  My picture in no way does it justice. I love it and fits fine.

To top all this off, I received a letter from Oklahoma.  I thought it was a holiday greeting from one of my blogging friends.  In actuality, it is. It was from Shabby Creations for me to select another blog design. I am trilled to receive this, but not sure if I have enough smarts to do as stated.

I may not be the brightest senior on the block, but I am good at putting two and two together.  This is one of the nicest things that someone did for me that was not, or expected. The giver did it out of kindness and a good heart. I am at a loss for the right words to express my appreciation. Thank you very, very much.This act of kindness will be stored in my memory bank forever. May the New Year be kinder to us all.
