2010 Persephone Secret Santa Reveal Day!!!

Today is the 2010 Persephone Secret Santa Reveal Day and let me just say how enjoyable this experience has been. It is my second time participating in Persephone Secret Santa and each time round has provided me with yummy treats and a lovely new Persephone title to add to my slim collection of grey colored tomes.  This year I received my gift from Adrienne of the blog, Some of a Kind - a fun and interesting blog about sewing, books and all things Adrienne.  I just want to say, "Thank you, Adrienne. I loved my new Persephone and the yummy treat you included. Merry Christmas to you!!" and "Thanks to Claire over at Paperback Reader for hosting this year's Persephone Secret Santa - Cheers!!".  And now on to the gift.  Here is a picture of my new Persephone, Saplings by Noel Streatfeild, Nancy's Peppermint Pretzels, a pretty bookmark and a sweet card.  (sorry the picture didn't come out too good, but I'm not too clever with uploading photos)

I'm excited to begin reading this new book, which sounds like it will be quite a treat to dive into.  And of course I will enjoy devouring those chocolate/peppermint covered pretzels. Definitely a great way to celebrate the holidays. 

Happy Reading and Happy Holidays!!!

Oh lucky you! I have looked at this book several times as I am a huge fan of some of Noel Streatfeild's other work for small people. Enjoy!
