There was not one barker in the bunch! Every single ornament I received was amazing.
It was so worth it!
And because the ornies were so noteworthy, I just HAD to share.

This snowman piece was one that my husband liked quite a bit.
I wasn't able to capture all of the fine detail in the photo, but it has quite a bit of pizzazz!
This sweet clock faced paper ornament is really well made. The ruffles are WAY better than any I have tried to make. Gorgeous!

I love vintage graphics, so this little ornie just delighted me.
It has two little sled girls on the face, lots of glitter and great music graphics, too.
Did you see the little dangling beads at the bottom?
Such great details!
Jeanne Szewczyk is the artist on this one!
Who doesn't love a well made Victorian cone?
Look for Kimberly Laws' work at http://firstname.lastname@example.org/
I should have found a better backdrop for this one, as I don't think the true preciousness of this piece works with the tinsel tree as a backdrop, but I was a bit short on time.
These are tiny needlefelted acorns dangling from a retro-style bow.
This one was a giggle and a half.
I thought it was cute while in the packaging, but you HAVE to look at the best part!
Tiny skate! Thanks to Elizabeth Andrus of Creative Breathing!
Look at the teeny tiny ice skates! How clever is that??
Created by Elizabeth Andrus of Creative Breathing. Perfection!
For all of the elephant fans out there, take a peek at Barb Burkard's creation.
It reminds me of a wind up toy I had as a child.
Ellie was one of my favorites as a child and I'm glad for the reminder this brings.
Thanks, Barb, for this sweet, pink cheeked ornie!
Blue Sky Studio sent this prim style stocking, but I have to tell you that the packaging on this one was as wonderful as the ornament.
It was enclosed in a pocket of sheet music that had been sewn and beribboned.
The presentation was so SPECIAL!
It made me want to step up my own shipping practices.
This was the first piece I pulled from my box when I got it and I have to say, I smile every time I pass it.
What a clever idea, no? And really well executed, too.
It is vintage-y and glitter-y and all of the things that make a great decoration.
Thanks to Natalea of Kandeland!
Last but not least, I have a super-glittered reindeer by Heather Rowley of http://www.speckled-egg.com/
Thank goodness, too, as I had a sort of "blah" wreath sitting in my home and this made it POP!
I used her glittered-goodness as the center focal point and it has turned my so-so wreath into a keeper!
Hope you enjoyed the Christmasy goodness!
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time, happy swapping!
