Addams Christmas Goodies

Today I am writing to show off my Christmas stash!!! I was so blessed this year by family and friends! Now I have no excuse whatsoever to get this project going like crazy!

First of all I want to give a big thank you to you guys in blogland that send gifts! You are all so sweet! Morticia want to thank you as well so she insisted on being in the photo with the blogland gifts!! The Tree stand and box is from Karin F.!! Its so beautfully ornate and somewhat gothic so it will be perfect for and Addams Family tree for next year! Thank you Karin!! The beautiful photos are from Katie!! She loves photography as much as I do so she sent some of her work... in miniature!! I can't wait to figure out where to put them! Thank you Katie!!! And the wonderful bouquet of 100 dying roses is from Sans! She sent them as an anniversary gift for the anniversary of her blog! Morticia loves them of course but I am going to have to make sure she doesn't start sniping the heads off of them! They're too pretty! I will have to do another post to show how I use these!! Thank you Sans!!

Here are a few items I received from my family! My hubby ordered several things (that I had on a list made for him - haha) online! I expected to get a few things but he didn't know what to choose so he just got everything!! haha! That works for me! I just choose a few of my favorites to show! Also, my MIL and SIL took me shopping in the Dollhouse store in Dallas and let me go wild! Thats where I found this fireplace screen by Brooke Tucker! I just love the goat head!

Here are a few more items! The pots will be the perfect place to use a few of those roses Sans sent!! The white wire shelves will be aged, dirtied, and addams-a-fied to go into Morticias conservatory! Also at the bottom of the pic is a cigar set for Gomez!

Lastly here is a crystal set for the formal dining room, and also this stove for Grandmama! Hubby picked this one out himself and did an awesome job! See..... you can pick out stuff I like honey!! haha!

So I feel pretty spoiled this year!! I also got a book on sculpting!! I can't wait to try out a few things on my next member of the Addams Family! oh - I also got some special things for my Clue project! But I put that on my Clue blog if you want to see!

Thank you again to all! Hugs, Ara
