Stephanie, over at The Enchanting Rose blog,
hosted a Christmas ornament swap this year.
A warm thanks to you, Stephanie.
The rules were easy - buy or make a Christmas ornament and send it,
along with a few little surprises, to someone you are randomly paired up with.
In return, you receive an ornament
by someone who was randomly paired up with you.
So, double the fun - gifting and receiving.
And, more importantly, you make two new friends.
This was the generous gift sent to me by
Debby R., over at My Favorite Things blog.
Debby is a gifted writer and photographer,
and her blog is a reflection of her -
The packaging on her gift was so beautiful,
I hated to tear it.
Ah, but the goodies inside - the Hallmark keepsake ornament,
warm happy socks and some delicious hot chocolate (& lots of Christmas confetti).
Thank you, Debby!

This is what I sent to Deb B. in Michigan.
Deb does not have a blog, but through e-mail we discovered we have quite a lot in common.
Deb shared how she celebrated Christmas with family and friends,
and spoke of her love of living in a big old farmhouse.

It would be more interesting to show these gifts on and under a Christmas tree,
but the tree isn't going up until tomorrow.
A little late getting in gear this year...
