On the first day of Christmas...
Our 12 Days to Christmas swap has officially kicked off in the most fun phase with the OPENING of the first gift. Tia, aka Ms Smoochie Lips had the distinction of providing the FIRST gift to be opened. She said she waited til the last minute to make hers because her muse was being uncooperative but she sure seems to have come through in a pinch as she sent ADORABLE ornaments of little birdies in an arrangement in a baby shoe! I think most of the participants have a soft spot for birdies so this was an appropriate gift sure to be beloved by all.
In other Christmas news, I also received my tree topper from the swap hosted by Donna at Under the Red Roof. My partner was the fabulous Lori of Vintage Flair who sent me this beautiful and BIG tree topper. I adore it!
I am also sharing a couple of close ups of part of my "Christmas Faerie" topper so you can see some of the yummy detail Lori added. I keep adding stuff to my tree topper and have not sent it off yet. Lori has been very gracious about this. Thank you Lori! I hope she likes it when she finally gets it.
