can you see the deer? sweet bauble on her pretty tree.

I have to share a little story about this last one. Madeline is my baby seester. She was so excited when i told her about my ornament exchange & wanted to participate. (this actually brought us closer)

In fact, she was my life line in this ornament exchange (worked on it for hours to make sure we didn't forget anyone- helped in matching up what turned out to be 70+ participants to each other so not one person got the other).

Maddie (who doesn't have a blog) is thinking about starting up one because she couldn't believe the kindness of Kate and their exchanged emails. She was overwhelmed. Kate, I can not thank you enough for your sweetness to my seester! xoxo

and to me. Kate sent me a matching beautiful ornament and a lovely Christmas card, thanking me for hosting the swap. Kindness... i believe in it always and returning it every chance possible.

thank-you Kate. It means a lot to me.

oh 1st Ornament Exchange... you've been a huge hit with me. I think I will have you every year at Dolce Vita.

(See more showcases here & here)

Every time you do one of these I am amazed about how beautiful the ornaments are that passed through the mail from random bloggers to other random bloggers. Seriously, awesome.

Gracie said...

I hope you are able to host another ornament swap! It's really wonderful! I received mine today!! I will send you pictures soon.

Oh and I feel so lost because I missed so many of your wonderful posts. I will have to try and catch up sometime (lol after the wedding!).

I definitely need to email you anyway! I hope you get the journal soon too! x

Brianna's purple one is my favorite...even though it wouldn't match anything else I have for Christmas, I still love it :)

My little neighbor,
I just got your Christmas card in the mail. Coming home to an actual letter to open is the best. Thank you for having me in your thoughts this Christmas. You really know how to make someone's day! :)
