Christmas Ornament Swap Reveal

Nothing can compare
to Christmas in the air.


A very happy day to you,
sweet friends!
Last month I hosted a Christmas Ornament Swap
and today is the big day for the reveal.
It's the day we get to see oh-so-many sweet
Christmas ornaments and treasures
that were sent across the states.
Won't you join in on the festivities!
Pour yourself a nice cup of hot cocoa,
hot apple cider, egg nog, tea, or coffee
and enjoy the pictures.
You may even want a piece of fudge
or a cookie. . .maybe even two.

Before I share what I received from the lovely Ronny,
I want to thank the 63 sweet participants.
It was truly a joy to host this event
and I appreciate you ladies for joining the fun.

Now let's get this Christmas party started!


Ronny was the sweet and incredibly thoughtful lady
that sent me my ornament package.
Get this, my dear friends,
Ronny sent not one, not two, not three,
but four Christmas ornaments!
Just look at these beauties. . .


And not only did she send three ornaments,
she also placed them in darling little boxes.
My oh my, what a darling lady!
This reindeer is ever so pretty with its glitter
and the lace butterfly clips beautifully 
onto the Christmas tree.


She blessed me with this amazing pink ball.
Oh friends, it's even more lovely in person.
The top has gemstones around it
and the pink shimmers and shines in the lights.


And this winter bird. . .
what a dainty little piece.
The bird is glass 
and has snow inside of it.


She looks very pretty
sitting in my Christmas tree.


Ronny also included a beautiful snowflake doily,
a hand towel with a cardinal on it,
and these delicious coconut chocolates.
The chocolates. . .well, they were very, very, good.
And I just ate my last one while typing this.
They didn't last long. . .
and I may not have shared with my husband and son.
Oops. . .


A very big, heartfelt thanks 
to my new friend Ronny!
I felt ever so spoiled and blessed by her.

I had the pleasure of sending to Mari
Here are the goodies I sent her way. . .



Enjoy the many pictures below, my friends.
I am sure you will oooh and ahhh
and the lovely Christmas treasures.

I had sent an email with my picture of the gifts I received - but cyber gremlins must have eaten it on the way! I had a beautiful package from Sara T and adored all the hand made items! Thank you for doing this for us - it was a pleasure and a nice distraction from a busy time. :) I loved all these pictures!!

Congratulations on your successful ornament swap! Ronny’s package is really darling. I love the cute little bird! And I enjoyed seeing all these photos. Everyone must have put lot of thoughts in their gifts. Very Merry Christmas, Stephanie! xo

Marilyn McLeod @ Pink Paper Cottage said...

This was my first swap ever sweet lady! I so enjoyed it! I thought I went overboard, but now I see the other ladies who participated surely did too! What fun it was to give give give and make make make! Some of these gals are "pros" at swaps I can tell! Lots of "tea" ladies. The photos were so fun to look at and I loved all the ornaments and goodies sent and received. Thank you Stephanie for hosting this. Hugs.... Marilyn

Roberta said...

Dear friend,
I think it's a pity that I missed the Christmas exchange!

Oh Stephanie, I didn't know you were doing this ornament swap. What a wonderful idea. I love pretty ornaments, and it's nice to have a new ornament each year as well as the old ones we treasure. That little Santa suit is darling, and caught my eye right away. The crocheted ones are special, as they are handmade. My friend from church was just telling me that she had some Russell Stover chocolates the other day, and it was the best. And that pink ornament is beautiful, and would look so pretty on my tree this year, as I have pink ornaments for my granddaughters. You are always so generous and caring when it comes to these swaps, and it seems that everyone takes pleasure in them so much.

Wishing you the Merriest Christmas to my very special blog friend.

love, ~Sheri

I came back just to look once more at all the beautiful gifts that were shared amongst these dear ladies.
I stand amazed at the versatility of each and every ornament and package that was either made or purchased and then to see all the different little treasures that were tucked inside to finish of the gift box, just amazing!
You do a beautiful job and your followers are very gracious.
Thank you again!!

Hi Stephanie,
what a lovely interaction you have had with many friends in your 'swap'. I like the way you said you will not tell your husband about your 'chocies' :-). I expect to see a different picture of you on your blog after Christmas - a little plumper in the face eh? :-)
Have a lovely time with family and friends over Christmas.

Mrs. Sarah Coller said...

How fun! I'll be sure to keep my eye out for your swap next year. Such pretty things!

Merry Christmas!
Sarah
