Ornament Swap/Blog Hop

proposed the idea of an ornament swap on her blog,
I was ready and willing,
and 
it has been fun!
My partner was Holly Westfall.
Here's what I received.
When I opened the envelope, this is what a saw!
Isn't it great so far?
There's more!
Inside the tin was a beautiful red bag!
How did she know, red is one of my 10,000 favorite colors.
I took a peek inside the bag.
SMILES!
More wrapping!
The excitement is mounting!

At last, and isn't it beautiful!  It was worth the wait!
And here, my beautiful, new ornament hangs on the tree!
Sigh!
It is beautiful!

Now, here is the list of other participants.
Be sure to check out their blogs and see what they received in this swap!


Thank you, Sally!  I enjoyed this swap!

Oh, the wrappings are so very awesome. I fear that I feel short with the trimmings on my package, and I love wrapping presents! I love the sweet little birdie. I would leave it out all year long to keep the memory of these special friendships!
Merry Christmas!
Enjoy the day!

Mallory, I love the white dove ornament that Holly created for you it is so pretty hanging on your tree, but it is also and ornament that could hang in a window all year round.
Merry Christmas,
Therese

How lucky you are to have been paired up with Holly! The ornament she sent you really is beautiful. And the snowman ornament you sent her. . .WOW! You really possess a ton of talent to add so many details to such a small piece. Well done!

Sandi Volpe said...

Beautiful ornament, saw your cute snoman-fantastic. Have a great holiday!

Holly said...

Hi Mallory!! Oh, goodness, I'm so glad you liked the ornament and the packaging too! :) Your sweet little snowman has gotten complimented each time a visitor has seen him - and my almost 6-year old loves him, and always asks to see "Frosty"...who's higher up on the tree because I'm worried the 3 year old will knock him down ;) Enjoy your day!!
