Vicky's Ornament Exchange

This is my 2nd year joining Vicky @
for her annual ornament exchange!
It is so much fun and you get to meet two new blogging friends.  The one you send ornaments to and the one who sends to you!
I received these adorable ornaments from

Look at the fun items in my package!
This handmade clip on ornament is a spider that Karen calls Charlotte~ she knew I would love this on my Pink and White tree!
She also made this adorable star ornament for my living room tree!  I love it!
She included a great smelling handmade soap called Spiced Mistletoe and...
this adorable Eiffel Tower necklace...she said I could use it to bling up my tree and then me!
(I've already worn it)

I love everything and had such a great time getting to know Karen!  I sent a package to
Julie @ Julie's Lifestyle and she blogged about her ornaments Here.  Julie is super sweet and it's been fun getting to know her!

Thanks Vicky and let's do this again next year!
The link ups are HERE so you can check out all the fun we had!

Wishing You Joy!
Linda

What lovely goodies Karen sent you Linda. She's a blogging buddy of mine, and I love the pretty spiders she makes. That pink one is so perfect. I love that you have a white tree to decorate. I've been looking all season for one at the thrift stores, but haven't found one yet. Oh well... maybe next year.

Such fun! I was tempted to chime in this year but didn't. Karen, Julie and Vicky are all sweethearts, and I'm sure you will treasure your gift from Karen, as Julie will yours.

The pink spider reminded me of the Christmas story of the spiders who came to decorate an old woman's tree. Love the touch of Paris - so perfect for you.

Isn't Vicky the best for organizing this exchange? I am glad you like your gifts Linda. Looking forward to next year! Cheers.

You got some lovely ornaments that fit your personality and I checked to see the ones you sent and Linda, they would go with my natural/woodland tree we have. Where did you get them?
