IN LOVE
with Mr. Robert's fairies.

Looks like you had a wonderful caring pardner. I love the Christmas fairy. Boy, I must live in a cave cause sometimes, when I visit our friends, I see and read about the neatest things. Now I'm going to go read about Mark Roberts. If only I could retain some of this. LOL

L♥ve Ya,
Chris

Beverly said...

What a wonderful swap box you received. I love all of your Christmas goodies. And, your fairy is the fairest of all. ;-)

Good morning BJ, your Christmas swap is so sweet. I did a swap for Halloween and had so much fun but opted not to do the Christmas one. Now I wish I had. Such is life. Your gifts are all wonderful but I agree with you about the Christmas fairy. Adorable.

Hugs...Jeanne

Kathleen Grace said...

What a wonderful package! A sweet treat for a sweet lady:>) Have a great day BJ!

Brenda said...

This makes me very Happy. Hope everyone else is as happy as you.

Stacey said...

That fairy is pretty special. What a sweet partner. :)

Andi said...

Oh BJ, I'm so glad you liked your Christmas Swap surprises. When I looked back at your blog archives to get to know your "likes" and saw that you liked Mark Roberts Fairies I knew what I was going to send you. We have a store in our mall that carries the fairies and this year they have the cutest little elves with the most amazing expressions on their sweet faces. They've decorated the store window with them. If I think to take my camera the next time I go, I'll snap a picture and post it.

Oh, be sure and send in the registration card for the fairy. Mark Roberts sends you a calendar and lots of goodies in the mail about where he will be on his signing tours and the new releases. That way I'll know someone out in West Texas is drooling over them right along with me here in the Sunshine State.

Love and Hugs, Andi

tardevil said...

Hey BJ! Thanks for telling me about Boomama! I actually did see some holiday tours from last year, but I don't think I got there through her place. In particular, I remember Angelic Accents & Jessica McCash's holiday decor, which was awesome. I can't bear to think of what I might have missed - YIKES! Thanks for letting me know it was the 15th. We've had a stomach virus running around our house, and I haven't been able to read everything as I would like...can't keep up w/ the laundry! Happy Thanksgiving! Will catch back up with you when I return! LOL!
