What I Got for Christmas 2015

Hey guys!

So for this week's post I'm going to be doing a Christmas "haul".

Let's get right into it. :D

(Please note that the few pictures used in this post are stock pictures, and they don't belong to me.)

  • A Bible (NKJV) + A Bible cover
  • Two bracelets (one with little golden presents, and one with mini purple elephants)
  • A birthstone necklace 
  • A hairbrush 

  • This Aurora stuffed animal  - my mom got this for me because it looks just like my favorite real-life cat, Twinkle. So I named her Twinkle Jr. xD I also have another cat, Twilight, and he's Jo's favorite cat, so she got one that looks like him. His name is (naturally) Twilight Jr. xD 
  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen 
  • Emma by Jane Austen 
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (I'm so glad to finally have my own copy!)

I'm a bit weird as far as 11-year-olds go...I love to read organizing/home economics books and I'm obsessed with vintage fashion (or anything vintage, really). So most of these books down here are on those topics. 
  • Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions - This book is something really cool my mom got me. It's a compilation of different things from a send-away sewing or cooking course you could take from the 1920s and 1930s. It has lots of little sewing projects and things like that, all vintage. It's really cool. 
  • Home Economics: Vintage Advice and Practical Science for the 21st-century Household - This is like Vintage Notions except it's a compilation of different articles from home-ec textbooks from the 1900s to 1940s. 
  • How to Sew a Button by Erin Bried - This book has a bunch of different old cooking, sewing, and cleaning tips.    

  • Breakfast at Tiffany's - I got the DVD for this movie. Can't wait to watch it. 
  • Return to the Canadian West, books 1 and 2 by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan 
  • Gertie Sews Vintage Casual - I love reading Gertie's blog, and I have her first book, so I was really happy to get her second one! 
  • The Sierra Jensen Series Volumes 1, 2 and 3 
  • The Christy Miller Series Volumes 1, 2, 3 and 4 - I've read all of these books before (I borrowed them for the library) but I didn't have my own copy of any of them. So when I opened the final one (which also happened to be my favorite in the series [I opened it first]) I screamed and then started crying. Literally, crying. I was that happy. (This is my favorite series on the face of the earth. Besides Narnia. It's a tie with Narnia.)
That's most of what I got for Christmas. I got a few other smaller things, but they aren't really worth mentioning here. 

Thanks so much for reading! What did you get for Christmas?

  1. Your gifts all sound so awesome! One can never receive too many books :) The bracelets sound really cool too.
    I got, among other things, a fountain pen, the Battle of Five Armies Extended Edition movie, fuzzy socks, and a couple fandom shirts (panic! and sherlock).
