OVER the TOP Gift From Kathie

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have a special little share for you ....... It's a gift I received from my good good friend Kathie this holiday season.  When she knocked on my door and was standing there with this PRETTY PRETTY package......all I could think of is........Where in the world did she get that GORGEOUS Peppermint Plate.  Well........let me tell you friends....this post is going to BLOW YOU AWAY.
Here is what Kathie was holding in her hands when I opened my front door on Sunday afternoon.  It was what I thought to be a plate of cookies........(and I'm thinking...OH BOY OH BOY - to receive some of Kathie's homemade goodness.....YUM.....I'm ready to BLOW the diet)........
But as I looked closer at the packaging I realized that the cookies were on this AMAZING and GORGEOUS peppermint plate..........But then Kathie told me the most SHOCKING part of this gift......
The plate is ACTUALLY Peppermint Candies.......That have been unwrapped (thank you John) and arranged on a cookie sheet and then baked (to melt them down) and join together to form this plate.  IS THAT NOT JUST THE MOST AMAZING AND CHARMING GIFT EVER!
Kathie's dear sweet husband unwrapped all 36 peppermint candies and then Kathie arranged them onto a cookie sheet and baked them for about 10 (or so) minutes.........
And if the Peppermint Candy plate wasn't enough of a gift......Kathie made me her version of a Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies.  LET ME TELL YOU FRIEND.........I am going to have to take Kathie's word on all the YUMMY GOODNESS that is wrapped up into this gift.  I honestly don't have the heart to unwrap this and take away from the PRETTY of this gift.
 Here's a close-up of the Peppermint Candies all melted together to create the plate.
And if the Peppermint Plate......and the Homemade Thin Mint cookies wasn't enough ....... Kathie went OVER THE TOP with creating this DARLING DARLING and OH SO COORDINATING Gift Tag. It was the PERFECT addition to putting this entire gift together.
Can I just say that this was one of the most amazing and over the top gifts I received this year.  I am SOOOOOO BLESSED and HONORED that Kathie created this for me ..... THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU KATHIE!  You are AMAZING Girlfriend,
 It's one of those gifts that just WOW'ed ME.........
And makes me realize that I am blessed to have such talented and gengerous friends.  Thank you Kathie!
 
I'm off to put the finishing touches on the gifts I'm making for my SaddleBrooke Girlfriends for New Years Eve.  I need to get them finished and ready for delivery on Monday morning........ So I'll be busy this weekend working on those.
 
I'll be back tomorrow to share a darling gift that my good good friend Kris gave to me on Christmas Day - Hope you can make plans to join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
