Look who came to visit...

I went to my post office yesterday, and guess who was waiting for me? This darling paper doll.

(here she is waving at you from Christmas Hotel, where she is staying)

I won her at Sandy's blog giveaway last week. I cannot tell you how beautiful she is in person. Sandy is the most fabulous artist and I'm not sure she gets the recognition she deserves. Please visit her blog and check out her marvelous art and catch up with her and her wacky sense of humor. She is offering yet another giveaway, and I think she is so kind to offer her art to us in this fashion. Sandy is a great artist, blogger and now I feel quite honored and proud to call her friend.

OK, I 'd better stop, for fear of embarrassing my friend.

In case, you think that I have been an absent bloggie friend this week, it's because I got an early Christmas present. HDTV!!! I have wanted it for some time, but we decided to wait until there were more shows being broadcast in HD. Several years ago, when she moved across country, my sister gave me her old home theater set up. We just never got around to completely setting it up. Now, my hubby is setting everything up. It's not a new system, but really nice speakers and such. I hope the neighbors don't report us to the noise police. Imagine that, older cats like us blasting out music, movies, and such, like teenagers. It is so awesome, dude.

I will be back later with some art and maybe a holiday craft or two. We'll see, so take care and don't stress out so.

sooo, girls night at your place...chick flick, beverages and popcorn? :D

We are in the market for a new flat screen lcd tv...and we too have the home theatre set up, but it's still in the box and has been for almost 6 years...we don't even know if it actually works, sad but true.

You lucky girl!! I just love all of Sandy's art work. Those paper dolls are priceless.
I know what you mean about the home theater thing. We are thinking of retiring maybe to a town home and I said I don't think so with this sound system and other people being nearby. It freaks me out when I am home alone. The speaker near the hallway makes it sound like someone is in the other room.
I will bring the popcorn.
