Remember those beautiful skates that were in my Christmas bedroom photos I shared?
They were a gift from my Secret Santa this year, who happens to be my friend Nikki!

Above is a photo of all the lovelies she sent to me..... the GORGEOUS skates, beautiful bluebird & roses ornaments (how appropriate! :) and of course yummy chocolates in pretty wrappings!

A closeup of the sweet ornaments, which were placed on our little pink tree in the bedroom....Nikki knew I had been admiring pretty decorative ice skates online, so she MADE these just for me!! I gasped when I opened the box and found these beauties within!


Beautiful roses, ribbons, glitter!! They are perfect for my decor too, as you saw in some of my bedroom photos!!
Coincidentally, I was Nikki's Secret Santa too, so next time I'll share what I made for/sent her!


Hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!!

Hey Becca!
I was just over at Nikki's and I saw all of the beautiful treasures that you gave to her as secret santa, the doll of her that you made is beautiful and so unique, as were all of the other pretties in her box....and so I thought I'd pop in on you, and see what you got from your secret santa gift....oh it's all beautiful! What fun!
I don't know how I lost track of you, but I am glad I found your blog again...everything looks so pretty here...
xoxo,
Queenie~
