Goodbye Christmas....here comes 2009

We had a good Christmas. I've some pics to share. These are some of my faves.

This was my surprise present from John. I saw this gorgeous vintage basket in a local antique store. He kept saying things that he didn't like it, it was too expensive.....well, silly me....fell for it. He said he went back first thing the next day and got it. I love it. It's old, it's glitzy. I love the visual of the lady who spent all this time make it. I wonder where it sat in her home. It just has such a story....that's the kind of things I LOVE.

My wonderful new computer chair. The old one was so bad.....no cover, just foam!! I fell like a queen!! :::Smiles::: Bad thing is, it slides so well I nearly went through the patio door the other night!! LOL

You've seen my nutcracker collection here: http://shellyraewood.blogspot.com/2008/12/catching-up-whew.html . These are the 2 new additions for 2008. I picked out Indiana Jonescracker. He just cracked me up. To commemorative our first Christmas in the South, John found this adorable snowman beachy guy.....isn't it a riot?? I LOVE the sunglasses.

My big present from the guys. They bought me this amazing new flat screen monitor for my 'puter. It is 22 inches!! It is HUGE!! I LOVE it!!

I had a great day.....even far away from Friends and family!! Can't wait to see what 2009 will bring!!
