Gifted Ornaments

I hosted a Christmas luncheon yesterday for 12 of my non-quilting friends. (More about my quilting friends later). I did all the cooking and following my niece's form, I served Pumpkin Pie Martinis to start, so delicious and everyone wanted the recipe. I was delighted to receive some lovely gifts including these five new additions to my trees.

This sparkly high heeled slipper fit right into my living room tree with all silver, white and gold ornaments.

As did this one made out of ribbon and fashioned to look like a rose, so pretty.

Everyone knows that I love Santas and this one was so unusual.  He's made of a small gourd and comes from Peru.

How about this handsome Parisian Santa with his easel, painting by the Eiffel Tower?  A real charmer!

And last but certainly not least, this winning Scottish Santa playing the bagpipe.

Now for my quilting friends.  I am hosting another luncheon tomorrow, but that will be much easier than yesterday's.  It's a much smaller group since so many will be out of town and its a potluck, so all I have to make is the meat course, a spiral baked ham, doesn't get much easier than that.  I love entertaining over the holidays and getting to share my festive home.

The gourd santa is very cool.
