I have those exact same measuring spoons, Stacy. I like having a spoon on either side because if a recipe goes from a wet ingredient to a dry one of the same measurement, you can use the other end of the spoon without rinsing or drying. And the magnets keep them all together without having a ring you need to unhook them from. Cool gift.

Barbara, before I focused in on your, I thought you have three cats checking out what you had gotten (lol).

I told you the details were great! It is hard to see the size of the figurine in the picture. It is about 4 or 5 inches tall. Cute furry animals that size are usually called mice! LOL

Just picked up my Secret Santa package at the post office. It's filled with lots of pretty packages and a bag of delicious candy. Yum! I'll even have something for my stocking.

The city on the return address gave the sender away. I just have to figure out which of the couple is my Santa.

I'm not going to open my gifts until Christmas morning since, at this point, I only have two gifts under the tree.

I'm going to be good and save the candy for a treat on Christmas Eve.

Thanks Barbara and/or James.

Katie, even before I got to the end of the post I had a feeling it was Barbara and/or James! That's cool!

You're welcome Katie! I hope you enjoy your gifts!

Barbara
P.S. Since others have revealed who their Secret Santas were, I will go ahead and let you all know that the sender of that gorgeous kitty and fish figurine was Texas Girl. She really knew what I would like. Thanks again Stacy!

Hey, Jackie, I said who my Secret Santa was, but not what I got. Y'all will have to wait until Christmas day to find that out.

I'm really glad that you liked it Barbara. It just felt "right" when I saw it.

Okay then, Mine was Marigene.
