I participated in an Ornament exchange hosted by Kathleen, here. This is my first time participating, and oh my goodness did I get spoiled. But first I have to tell you a funny story.
I got the box today, I did not recognize the return address. Well hubby and I have strict orders that if we don’t know who it is from then it must be a gift the other person ordered and to NOT OPEN. You see I am kind of a sneak (hehe). Well so this box came, I shook it and it made a pretty noise and I am thinking “What did hubby get me that rings?” I called him at work, and he hemmed and hawed (well because he could not remember, what he could have possibly purchased that rang). This was at about 3pm in the afternoon, so I sat the box on hubby’s dresser. He came home and looked at the box, and for the life of him he could not remember what he ordered (said it bugged him all afternoon). So he found me in the kitchen and said, “honey I don’t think I purchased this.” “Oh,” I said, “it must have been something I bought you.” So we stood over the box wondering who is going to see a present and who is losing their mind! Well it turned out to be from her. We laughed, realizing this system we have may not work when we really do begin to lose our memory!!
Boy Love Bears All Things spoiled me rotten this year! I got the most beautiful “Porcelain Dated Bell” and I am sure I was a pain to shop for because I really did not give many hints (not on purpose mind you). But tell me how did she know one of my tree colors was white! Just look how beautiful it looks on my tree!
Thank you so much for the beautiful ornament. You may have just started something, hmmmm it does look good on my tree….a yearly addition? We will see, but I LOVE IT!!
Y’ALL I REALLY AM NOT BLONDE!
I totally missed another gift given to me by Mama Bear, I AM SOOO SORRY. This one even makes my heart melt EVEN MORE. She hand-stitched a beautiful ornament. Just look how special and adorable, Mama Bear thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your love is felt in every stitch I see, and you made my first ornament exchange so awesome. I am soo sorry I did not see it at first in the tissue paper~I was just so excited and giddy about getting such beautiful items!
