CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT EXCHANGE HOSTED BY 
VICKY at Life on Willie Mae Lane

I recently joined my friend Vicky and her blog Life on Willie Mae Lane for an ornament exchange that she hosted.  This is my first time involved in an ornament exchange for Christmas.  It was so much fun gathering and making the items for the person that I was assigned to by Vicky.

Here is a picture of the items inside the box when I opened it up.  My gifts arrived in the mail from Anne at Stuff & Nonsense.  It included a rustic wreath ornament, two bags filled with gold snowflake ornaments and two gift card holders.

Here is the pretty red box that the wreath ornament came in and the wreath ornament.

The wreath ornament, the snowflake ornaments, and the gift card holders are so pretty and I love them.

The ornaments are perfect and will look lovely on my Christmas tree this year.

Here is a closeup of the snowflake, gift card holders and the wreath.

I love these ornaments so much, thanks Anne!

This is the beautiful gold snowflake ornament decorated on my Christmas tree and I just love how it shines!

Here is the pretty rustic wreath ornament on my tree and I think it is just perfect.

To see the rest of the ornament exchange please visit Vicky at Life on Willie Mae Lane.  Thank you Vicky for hosting and organizing this fun ornament exchange.  Thanks to my new friend Anne at Stuff & Nonsense for all the wonderful ornaments.  My Christmas tree looks beautiful decorated with the ornaments you gave me.  Thanks also to Tuula at The Thrifty Rebel who I sent my package to, we are now following each other and are friends.

I am on Google +, Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

Have a blessed Sunday my friend....Vicky

  3. That's a fun idea. Year after year when you're putting up your Christmas tree you'll stop and reflect and think about the sweet person that sent them to you. They look great on your tree.

  11. The ornament exchange was so much fun wasn't it! I love all the things you received from Anne...she did a beautiful job packaging them up just right and it certainly appears they were picked out with care, just for you. Hope the rest of your Christmas Season is as special as this exchange was.
    Blessings!

  13. What a fun litthe package you recieved! So beautiful. I was able to gift Anne with a tea cup from my daughter at theenchantingrose's tea cup exchange. She is a dear.
    I too was able to participate in the exchange though I do not have a blog. I have met some lovely ladies through my daughters blog, what a blessing. I must come back and visit you again.

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones. Debbie
