Good Evening to all my Dear Friends. I have had so much fun in the two Christmas Swaps, the first one was hosted my Heidi of Foxgloves , fabric and folly. She also hosted the Halloween swap. She did such a Great job on them. I have met some new friends and their blogs, to me that is the most exciting thing about being apart of Swaps, meeting new friends and getting to know them.
My partner in the Vintage Christmas Swap was Donna from Party Wishes. If you have not been to visit her blog, I hope that you take the time to do so. She a very sweet and generous Lady. I was so excited when I saw my box sitting out side my front door, I bought it in and set it on my kitchen counter, I just looked at it for a bit, like a silly girl.... ......... :] Well when I came back from where ever I went,,,,,, I grabbed my big knife and ripped the box top, I was very careful not to hit some the very wonderful treasures that await me inside.
After I opened the box, I set it under my Christmas Tree to see what was in side. Donna took such care in wrapping everything and then put shredded paper all around so nothing was broken, how sweet of her. Now it took me a bit to get though all the paper, but when I found my first gift it was so great..
I am sorry that the photos are dark, my camera does not take very good photos. She had made me this very wonderful and beautiful Stocking, the colors match my tree ornaments, how cool is that. I love the big pink Rose on a Red background with a wide strip of light green around the top, it is a well made and heavy one, I hope hubby can find some goodies to put inside.......
I love this teacup set, you can't really tell, but the colors are red and gold green it looks like a Christmas teacup and saucer, I have had some wonderful tea in this sweet little teacup.
The saucer is so pretty I hate to cover it with the cup... lol; Donna has great taste.....
Donna also had a cute Snowman with a red hat and mittens she is very elegant.
What a sweet face....
A sparkly silver Snowflake. I hung it on my tree and the lights really make it sparkle. I love it!.
Again sorry for the poor photos, take my word for it, it looks so pretty on my tree. I really love the sparkly shinny ornaments.
She also put in some very yummy coffee and Chocolate, hubby and I really enjoyed the Peppermint coffee over the weekend. As for the candy I have not been able to take apart the beautifully wrapped chocolate. Some day I will..
So there you have it, I want to Thank you Donna for the time and thoughtfulness that went into this. I am so grateful and blessed to have been apart of the Swap and to have met a very lovely new friend, we have emailed each other a couple of times and Donna is such a kind and thoughtful person I love reading her blog she has great decorating ideas and her family is so sweet. I hope you all enjoyed my post and taking a look at my goodies.
Thank you all for taking time to visit me and leave sweet comments. I so enjoy reading them all. You are so great, I hope you all have a great week. God Bless;
