Pretty Little Things: Russian dolls, warm hands, and a little polar bear

Aren't these Russian doll measuring spoons adorable? They were a Christmas gift from Katrina, who totally understands my love for quirky-cute bakeware and cooking. She even included a handmade matching necklace with a little Russian doll charm.

I was sad that I missed the Cold Hands, Warm Heart  blogger swap a couple of months ago, but luckily, Katrine (another blogger that didn't sign up in time) contacted me and asked if I wanted to do one with her. These are the gloves she sent me (pretty, huh?). I can't wait to show you what else she sent in the package!

Just a close-up of one of my 30 x 30 outfits with a teddy bear blanket from my friend Yan (she lives in Hong Kong but we've been sending each other gifts since we graduated from college)

My sister--who's going to school in Chicago right now--was my Valentine this year, so we sent each other presents! She got me these super cute pink Paul Frank sweats, which are really soft inside.

I finally received the little handmade "bear skin rug" coaster that I won from Katrina's giveaway a few months ago! It was so worth the wait--I'm obsessed. If you want one (or four), check out Dandyrion's shop on Etsy. It comes in other colors, too (I chose the little polar bear).

The last frivolous thing I bought for myself before my "shopping fast" for this month.

My mom said these remind her of the Chiquita Banana lady, but whatever, I really like them.

I don't think I ever get tired of opening up packages.
Did you get anything fun in the mail lately?
