Gifts From Leonora

Leonora's been traveling again and gave me these cute earrings and the spoon rest from Italy. The marshmallows were from earlier. All good, and thank you Leonora!

Special MTG Cards

Andreas knows how much I still miss Mattie. I always will. So, he got these custom art MTG cards for me. The artist who did the backs and signed the cards did the original artwork for the cards themselves. All have special meanings in Mattie's life. Including her teaching Chad the way of the Sharr. They are precious to me.

Matching Socks!

Leonora got us these things for Christmas. I love the Lady and the Tramp socks. And the pens and hoops and the notebooks. I will be using my notebook soon and will find the perfect things for the hoops.

Parental Gifts

Andreas' parents sent us a box of Christmas presents. They got here on time; I am just that far behind on posting things on my blog. We are very grateful, and I plan on using the bag on our road trip to Poland.

Gifts From Prison

I visit the women's prison in Kosovo as part of my job. The prisoner I visit has, over the past year or so, made all these things for me. I use the scarf and hat frequently.

Lots Of Earrings

Some of these were gifts from Leonora, some were bought at the Christmas market. All are appreciated and loved. And I need to go back to wearing earrings every day.

Clinic Thank You

The medical staff at the embassy vaccination clinic gave us these chocolates for helping out. So very happy that almost all the people in the embassy are vaccinated now.

Gifts From Granit

Granit gave me these gifts for Christmas. I like the tartan a lot, and the Kosovo magnet will go on the fridge in the new house when we move next week.

Gifted

I gave a couple of large bags of yarn and other things to the deputy chief of mission's maid and she was so happy for it she made me these knitted slippers and a bead necklace.  They're lovely!

Birthday Gifts

I received birthday gifts in the same box as the anniversary gifts, as the dates are fairly close together.  So far, I've worn the necklace and will wear the earrings soon.  Need to find a use for the thread and fabric.  Thank you Betsy and Michael!

Anniversary Gifts

In the middle of last month, Andreas and I celebrated our anniversary.  His parents were kind enough to send us these gifts.  I am not at all sure what the carved wooden thing is, but the pillowcases are on the bed.  Even if the Rangers did blow it completely in the post season.
