A few presents to show you

I want to share a few little presents I recently received. We had our quilt guild meeting and Christmas party on Wed. and we always do a gift exchange , no names just random as to the gift you receive, if you bring one you receive one, I was really pleased with my gift , I guess you could call this one a quilters break time .
Sorry for the picture quality , can't seem to get the proper angle , so there is this lovely tea cup with cardinals on it , I love cardinals although we don't have them here and the cup has its own fine strainer for loose tea ,then there is the tea  from David's Tea , I have not tried this particular variety before ,it is called "an exotic journey" a green tea with mint and other spices , sounds wonderful doesn't it .I have had other teas from Davids and really enjoyed them . There is also some napkins with a Christmas design and Lindor Chocolates , I love chocolate and tea together , seriously , have you ever tried it , if not you don't know what you are missing.
 My friend Linda also gave me a gift that night which I love , I have seen these around for a few years now and always admired them so was really pleased to receive this , Thanks so much Linda you are the best.
 It looks fantastic when the lights are turned on , I must place a special doily under it .
I also have added to my technology toys , sounds like I have a ton of them doesn't it but that is far from the truth , I do have an ipod and now I have an Ipad 2 Touch , what a fun little item this is ,I have been having so much fun playing around with this and learning a few things about it, even found out there are quilting apps .
I have been using it this week to enter all the great giveaways in the bloghops, so convenient to sit in my favorite chair and surf the net , lots of fun !
 Today I am also celebrating my birthday , I won't tell you which one, lets just say I am older than dirt  ;-0 To celebrate I am decorating my tree , I finally got it up and now I am in the process of putting on a  few decorations then I think we are heading out for lunch so I'll talk to you all later and thanks so much for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila who is now one year older :-)
