Vicky's Annual Ornament Exchange

My wonderful friend Vicky at Life On Willie Mae Lane has done this ornament exchange for 3 years now and I'm so happy to have been a part of each one!  We send to one blogger and receive from another.  That way we meet two new friends!

This year I received ornaments from the sweet Terri who blogs at  Our Good Life and Christmas Tree Lane.
My package arrived and I was so excited!
Look at all the goodies! 
I love the Christmas card and the ornaments are in two gorgeous little gift bags!  Let's look!
I love cardinals and this little bird is so happy on my tree in the living room!
And this beautiful little house that is on my new white tree in my bedroom!
Here it is on the tree! 

Thank you Terri for the wonderful ornaments and gifts.  Terri and I also decided to exchange pocket letters.  I was so happy to receive the first one she ever did! 
I love it!

Thank you Terri for a fun exchange.  I sent ornaments to Jeanna at Slammin' the Screen Door and here is her blog post.  I have had a busy week and can't wait to share more of it with you! 

Wishing you JOY,

Jeanna said...

You received some adorable birdie ornaments. I have seen the pocket letters on other blogs as well but have never made one.

I can't thank you enough for the sweet snowmen you sent me. I love the gift bag and will use it to store the ornaments between Christmas'.

Merry Christmas, my new friend!

Hello Linda~~ so nice to meet you through this wonderful exchange.
I just love your ornaments, especially the way they are under glass, great idea.
Those pocket letters intrigue me...
This was the second exchange I was able to participate in, and so happy I did.

Oh those are so sweet! Cute little red bird and little house! Love all the extra goodies too...the card with the snowy barn really captured my eye. But what's a pocket letter? I've never heard of them!
Merry Christmas!

How fun...maybe I can do this next year...I was in a Christmas Exchange once, long ago, where we each were given a name of a blog and sent a gift to...can't remember for sure how we did it, now...anyway, the name I had has since closed her blog down, but at the time, she collected I found a pretty one and sent to her. She, in turn, sent me a Mark Roberts Fairy as I love them. We just read ea others blog and found something we knew we'd like. It was fun.....

Mereknits said...

Lovely gifts to you my friend.

Donna said...

How fun, Linda! The little house beneath the dome is just adorable! Can't wait to see more of your pretty white tree:)

Consider It All Joy said...

I've never done an ornament exchange but I sure have enjoyed the two pocket letters I've done. Your gifts and pocket letter are very special. Enjoy them! Blessings, Cindy

Fred Bredberry said...

Your Christmas trees are so wonderful! Thanks for sharing! We've got only one, but we had to pay for it so much, as it was cut somewhere in the woods. Our elder one, Malcolm, is keen on holidays, and green tree is of vital importance for him, so we had to do this, though Jane was against it.
With happy smiles and warm hugs,
Fred and Jane
