Vintage Stocking Swap & 2 Cool Gadgets

Here it is late Christmas night and I just have to share a few things. First is the stocking I received from Joyce for the Flickr Vintage Stocking Swap ......

I love the floral fabric she used and all the wonderful ornies she stuffed it with, but my very favorite are the darling little vintage angel bells.....



Here's a closeup of the little angels sitting with my Christmas village. Aren't they just adorable! And there's a whole little choir of them. I love it! Thank you Joyce!



Next are two cool gadgets I received from my husband today for Christmas and yes both of these were on my list.

This is a neat tool called a Cutterfly by EK Success It's sort of like a swiss army knife for crafters--paper crafters in particular, but I think it'll have a lot of fun uses. When it folds up it looks like a little pink butterfly. I plan to carry it in my purse and I think the scissors and tape measure will be the most used part.

Next is this little mini travel iron by Smartek Isn't it cute! It's only 3 1/2 inches tall and it has no steam, so it's perfect for ironing quilt block seams as you go. I can't wait to use it!

I love getting new little gadgets like these! I guess now I should sit down and work on a project or two just so I can use my new toys! Who says we get too big for toys--they just change a little the older we get.
