I was very excited to join in with Vicky from Life On Willie Mae Lane for her ornament exchange.
I received mine shortly after I broke my knee so it really lifted my spirits when I got my box. I couldn't wait to open it and see what I got!
It was from a lady in Colorado, Dee Ann. I believe she is the grandmother of Stephanie from The Enchanting Rose. While not having her own blog, she wanted to be a part of the fun. I'm so glad she did! She sent me the sweetest note along with my well-wrapped ornaments. Thank you Dee Ann - they arrived safely and I just love them!
First off, was this adorable moose family. Check out the antlers! Perfect for my rustic, woodland theme.
Next, securely wrapped in bubble wrap, was an adorable glass ornament with sledding reindeer inside. It is so cute! I nestled it and the moose into the greenery on my entry table - I wanted them both to be seen right away!
The last item in my box was the cutest wooden bowl ever! Dee Ann knew from my answers, I collect snowmen so she picked this out for me. I just love it! It, too, is on my entry table as it says "Welcome"!
The nice thing is, it can stay out for the rest of Winter and will make me smile even when the days are dreary!
Sadly, I didn't get the moose in this next picture…they are on the other end of the table…obviously I didn't do too well taking this picture either…it's all blurry…sorry about that.
I was excited to learn I had Vicky's name. She was fun to create for and has said the nicest things. Plus she got a special gift from Donna as a thank you for hosting the exchange. :o) Be sure to hop over and check out all the amazing ornaments and gifts everyone has received. Go here.
Thank you so much, Vicky! This was so much fun to participate in and I can't wait to be a part of it next year!
Hugs and blessings,
