Vicky's 3rd Annual Ornament Exchange

Vicky, who blogs at Life on Willie Mae Lane, hosted her 3rd annual ornament exchange.  I participate in her first one two years ago and again this year.  Not sure how I missed last year’s. L

I was super excited to learn that the recipient of my gift was going to be Cecilia at The B Farm.  Keep an eye out for her post about the ornaments I sent to her and also read more of her blog to enjoy her decorating talent.  She has a lovely city home as well as an equally lovely farm house.

I love ALL things snowmen, one of my favorite things to decorate with at Christmas.  Linda at A La Carte had me pegged when she sent me her exchange gifts.

Love the gift bag and two sweet ornaments.

One holds a picture of my children and the other holds a picture of me with my sweetie.

An adorable little stocking

Pretty and useful note cards

Elegant silver glass ornaments.  I have been known to decorate a second tree in our home and these will go perfectly on that one.  It is mostly white and silver.  However, this year we only have one tree so these will be safely packed away and now I am inspired to make sure I get the second tree next year.

Thank you so much, Linda.  I absolutely love it all! You couldn't have selected anything more perfect for me.

Many thanks to Vicky for hosting this fun ornament exchange. Please visit Vicky and see how special life is on Willie Mae Lane.  Also, visit her linky party to see more ornaments.

How is your holiday season going so far?

Shhh...I have a thing for Santa

Who knew?!?

I love Snowman…I really do. But looking around the house, I realized that I also have a super big crush on Santa.

This guy doesn't go anywhere without his reindeer!

I decided to frame the "Winter" stitchery instead of making a small quilt.  I change my mind all the time, do you?  The small ceramic gift box was a gift from my son when he was in elementary school.

He is too adorable with his glasses.

These guys hold stockings...that is another post.

Namaste...my ornament for this year.  He is hanging on by a gold paper clip until I can get proper string.

Merry Christmas!
