dear ornament swappers, i hope by now you've received your ornament or at least have heard something from your partner and agreed to extend the mail out date together, which is fine. If you have any problems, please let me know!
i couldn't love my ornament more. I was paired up with Erin of C'est La Vie, who has such a cute blog- of course she would send me a most wonderful Christmas package!
Inside the pretty smelling tea tin was this little one. I love her -- she fits so perfect with my other deer ornaments.
I mean even her Christmas card to me was perfect... vintage ephemera & dogs! plus these italian inspired gift tags.
As if that wasn't enough, Erin also sent me a copy of her favorite book. I just love what she wrote me inside the cover. (once upon a time, i was burned on a book swap that i was looking forward to... i told erin she made up for that too without even knowing it. lovely!)our first christmas tree. Thank you so much Erin!!! xoxo
here's what i sent Erin:
For her ornament, Erin said her tree was silver (oh what i want!) so i went in search on etsy for something that would stand out on silver and found this one from Frost Studio. A sweet Christmas embroidery.our virtual coffee date because she collects all things crabs. i remember thinking that was such an odd thing to collect, which is what i love finding out about people (the random things!)
An early Christmas treat! i truly believe this swap is special because every holiday now you'll have a memory of random kindness -- and you'll know that it does in fact exist in the world.
So for next week... those of you who have received your ornament, please send me a photo so i can do an ornament showcase.
***Please include your blog link & the blog link of who sent the ornament to you*** + the photo to my new married email micaela.maxhamATgmail.com
i'll show off your ornaments next wens. on my Dolce Vita!
