Just Like Christmas

A few weeks ago my friend Lisa over at Laughing Orca Ranch had a give away and I was the lucky winner of the grand prize. 

Lisa is wonderfully honest, sweet, sensitive, bold and generous and I am honored to call her my friend.

I came home from work and there was this large box from New Mexico... I grabbed my camera and scoured for new or even charged batteries. With somewhat fresh batteries loaded into my camera I dove into the box.. 

First thing I see a pretty pink heart's gift bag...

Very pretty and crammed full !!!

Crammed full of Tea's..

... and books

A nice soft blanket, and chocolates.. 

and this very very soft wonderfully warm hat!



  1. Awwwww! You made me blush :) I'm so happy the package arrived safely and you had a nice surprise. And you look beautiful wearing the hat. Those colors look lovely on you.
    Now, go make yourself a cup of hot tea, curl up under that soft blanket, nibble some chocolate, and lose yourself for a few hours while reading one of those books. :)

    You deserve it, my friend.


  2. What a wonderful gift !! Lookie all the goodies! And a home made hat made with love I am sure.Congrats! That Lisa is a sweet gal

  3. Hi there ...I have just found your blog and have to confess I'm in love with your horses. The are gorgeous. I have dreams that my gypsy cob yearlings will one day grow into lovely cob types. Congrats on your bag of goodies it sure looked great

  4. HI Sally!! Welcome to my blog =) Thank you for your kind words about my girls. I want to breed Rosie to a Gypsy Cob (breed down in height but not in bulk).

  5. What a perfect winter gift - all the ingredients for a warm and cozy day on the couch :) The hat is really nice and looks great on you.
    I really enjoy the Laughing Orca Ranch blog. SO nice of her to put that package together. What a sweetie.

  6. What a fun surprise, to brighten up winter. Rosie x Gypsy Cob = WOW!
