The 2nd Annual Ornament Exchange

Hi everyone! This is my 2nd year to participate in Vicky's Annual Ornament Exchange.  It is so much fun...Vicky has us answer a short questionnaire, pairs us up and we send them an ornaments and usually a few other items.  And we make a couple of new blog friends.

Sherry from Thrift My House was the person I got. She's a sweetie and had no preferences for an ornament style. Whee! I got to have fun creating her something. Pop over and visit her here to see what I sent her.

Then I was contacted by Kelly of "Dreaming of Vintage" to let me know she had received my name and was mailing my ornament. Of course it came while we were on vacation. But my daughter was home to receive it so I had her open the box and snap a picture. Here's what she sent me:

Oh my goodness! A bunch of goodies all packed in a beautiful white basket with a red reindeer liner! I couldn't wait to get home and see all the goodies inside! Kelly did such a good job choosing things that fit my style.

There were several rustic, woodland themed ornaments,

A Noel sign

A rusty metal pinecone

A twine star

There was a whole package of these rusty tin stars!

A cute red bird

A red burlap ball

A wood Winter Wonderland sign

a pretty towel,

and more goodies!

I can't wait to use these on some projects!

Plus she included a very sweet note. Thank you, Kelly! I feel absolutely spoiled!

And thank you, Vicky, for hosting the Ornament Exchange again. I can't wait to participate again next year! What a blast!!


  1. Wow Cecilia! Kelly was so generous. I love all the rustic goodies she sent. The twine star and wood sign are my favorites. Thanks so much for joining the fun again. I love starting our the Christmas season like this. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Oh my goodness, yes she was! I love them all but I think the metal pinecone is my favorite...or the rusty :o)
    I love it too! Thanks, Vicky!

  3. What a wonderful haul, Cecilia! Kelly really went all out in sending you some fantastic things! I think I like the metal pinecone, too! It's quite unusual! But then, all of them are so unique! This ornament exchange was so much fun for all of us!

    1. No kidding! I do love them perfect for my tree. Yes, I do think everyone had a blast with it. Have a great week, Gail!
