This is my first year joining Vicky's @Life on Willie Mae Lane Annual Ornament Exchange. Some of my blogging buddies were signing up so I had to participate too! I don't know how Vicky managed to pair up the givers and receivers but she did an awesome job with matching our likes and dislikes. I was given Denise @ Denise's Delights in her Coffeeberry Cottage, someone whom I've been following for quite a while and a lover of purple, too! Yay! She is a very lovely Christian lady who truly loves life and family. I enjoy reading her posts so much! In my excitement with making her ornaments and sending her my package, I forgot to take pictures. Oh well, you'll just have to check out her blog to see what she received and enjoy reading about her everyday adventures.
I had no idea who had my name and Vicky told me mine was coming from overseas and that got me very excited.
The other day I opened the frontdoor and to my surprise, there was a cutely wrapped package (see picture below) waiting for me. My beautifully wrapped package was all the way from Australia! The outside was decorated in holiday style with gold wire poinsettia and candle trimmed paper. I had never seen anything like that before!
Carefully I opened the box and this is what I found:
A wonderfully written holiday note, an awesome Merry Christmas with a star hang tag and a gorgeous silver poinsettia clipped onto purple tulle decorated Christmas box. Whew!
Inside the box on top of lavender tissue paper was the cutest burlap angel that matched perfectly with my loopy jute garland! Who knew????
And inside the tissue paper were six adorable purple teardrop ornaments and six vintage purple lightbulb ornaments. All together, twelve of the cutest purple ornaments you've ever seen!
I'm in a purple winter wonderland with these . . .
. . . and these!!!
And see how the burlap angel matches my garland? I could make lots of burlap angels to attach to the garland! What an inspiration and how adorable would that be!
All of this from the lovely Belle in Oz - The Land Down Under! Thank you so much! I've sent her an email, thanking her and wishing her and her family a very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season! Belle doesn't have a blog but I do hope she is inspired to start one. For now, we'll just develop our friendship through emails.
And thank you Vicky for hosting this wonderful ornament exchange! It was so much fun!
