Vicky's 3rd Annual Ornament Exchange

December 11, 2015

Hello Blog Friends.

I recently joined Vicky at Life on Willie Mae Lane for her third annual ornament exchange.

This is my third time participating in this fun exchange with other bloggers.

I enjoyed making the ornaments and gathering the goodies that I was assigned to send off to by Vicky.

I sent my package off to Sherry who blogs at Thrift My House and I'm so happy to have met a new blog friend!

My lovely gifts arrived in the mail from Debbie who blogs at She Graces Her Home in God's Beauty.  I enjoyed opening up my box of goodies when they arrived in the mail.  

Here is what arrived for me to open up.  A beautiful card, an angel cookie cutter, and a recipe to make cookies.  Pretty red Christmas gift tags, handmade by her daughter, and my blog friend, Stephanie who blogs at The Enchanting Rose, and cute snowflake tissues.   

I opened up the box and here is what the gorgeous glass angel ornament looks like.

Here is the beautiful glass angel ornament hanging on my Christmas tree.

I had tears of joy when I opened up my box to see this beautiful angel ornament and I love how it looks on my tree.  Thank you so much Debbie, I love everything and I will enjoy making cookies over the holidays.

I am so happy I joined the ornament exchange again this year.  Thank you Vicky for taking the time to arrange and organize this for us all.  I had so much fun and I'm looking forward to it again next year.  

You can visit Vicky's blog to see the ornaments that everyone that participated in this exchange received.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and see you back here on Monday for Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up.
