I am still here :-)

Hello everyone :) No I haven't deserted you all : D I know it's been a while. I am at last feeling a little more myself it has been a tough month or so between pain and meds that have made me soooo sleepy or sick.I have been told that I am going to need knee replacement surgery when!!! I have no idea as our health care has long lists and until then I will have good and bad days. Thanks to the family I got over the Christmas and new Year and enjoyed it. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a belated though heartfelt Happy New Year to you all.
I received a lot of gifts over the Christmas and they were never so welcome and appreciated each little gift made me smile and cheered me up Thank you all so much and for all your lovely warm comments and emails.
These are my last advent calender gifts (very late)
From Kikka wonderful colouring pencils and book sweets and candles. I love the pencils they look so real. Kikka also sent me some chocolate that didn't make it into the picture :D  Thank you Kikka.

From Drora gorgeous tiny furniture. I have admired her tiny furniture so much and am now so proud to own some of them. Thank you my dear friend.

From Leena beautiful glass birds they even came in a wonderful little box and a fantastic little mirror on it's own stand that will suit any house. Thank you Leena for your beautiful gifts. 

Fabiola sent me some of her wonderful items I love the lady in the frame Faby is so very talented with the needle and it is always a pleasure to receive one of her treasures. The little tile got broke but I have since glued it back. Thank you Faby for these treasures. It was a lot of fun doing this advent swap and I got so many new treasures.
These are more gifts that I received for Christmas.

 Birgit though I had to wait to open your gifts :-D  it was worth the wait. I was so jealous when Fluby and Rosey got their wonderful advent candle holder but I am not jealous any more because yay I now have my own lol it is beautiful and when I saw the gorgeous calender my eyes got very blurry. I now have a smile every time I look at it how could I not with Fluby and Rosey smiling at me from the pages.. Thank you Birgit for your wonderful thoughtful gifts.
I also received these beautiful items from Faby a cute ladybird and Christmas hanging and a calender that says so much about this blogworld.
Thank you all for the wonderful friendship you have all given me though we are far apart I feel very close to you.
Have a great weekend and that this 2016 brings you all Happiness Health Love and Peace.
Warm Hugs to all my Friends

Fabiola said...

Beautiful gifts from many friends. I'm so sorry for the little tile..
Happy 2016!

Victoria Rocus said...

Hi Maria...
glad to hear you Re feeling a bit better. Hope things work out for your knee surgery!

Hugs to you,

Cinderella Moments said...

Oh sweet Maria! I hope you do feel much better. Being in pain sure takes the fun out of life. But do make sure there are absolutely no other options before you have knee surgery. It's a major surgery that can do more harm than good. Give it serious thought and do your own research. Doctors don't know everything.
Anyways forgive my ramblings. I wish you a terrific 2016 with no pain or sickness.
big hugs♥,

Hello Maria,
What wonderful presents. Those are some wonderful miniatures. I am happy you had a nice Christmas but sorry about your health. I will be thinking about you and praying you get the operation fast.
Big hug

Sadly I expected something like this - you have been so very quiet for so long, there must have been a reason for this... I'm very sad to hear your knee problems are this serious, fingers crossed for a fast termination of the surgery... and of course in general my very best wishes. But it's great you have been spoiled with so many lovely and fantastic gifts, I'm glad you've liked my share... ;O)


Marjorie Bailey said...

Hello, Maria
I'm so sorry to hear about your painful knee problem, but so happy that you were able to enjoy your Christmas festivities in spite of it. I hope you'll be able to have the surgery sooner rather than later. The gifts you received are all lovely - how very special they are! May the New Year bring you renewed health and much happiness.

Hannah said...

Jane Smith said...

I hope you will mend quickly after the surgery! Your gifts are wonderful from lovely ladies!
