Christmas in July Swap Package, Tudor Tuesdays SAL

I received the most wonderful Christmas in July swap package from my swap partner, Nina. It came all the way from Turkey. Look what she sent - and in a BLUE theme - my favorite color!!

Material with such sweet individual 'cards':

 A beautiful wall hanging, some variegated threads and a key chain:

 Postcards from Turkey:

And a sweet Christmas stocking, angel ornament and "Joy" ornament. 

Thank you so much, Nina! I love it all!!!

Today is the inaugural launch of theTudor Tuesdays SAL blog. There's a quiz posted by Kaye -
"Are you a Tudor Queen or Peasant?" and a couple of book reviews by moi.  I took the quiz and I discovered I'm "Duchess of Davenport" - HA!  So, if you're game - pop on over, take the quiz and let us know if you're a queen or a peasant.
