Ornament Exchange & Vintage Gifts from Etsy!

Hello Friends! I have to tell you about a fun Ornament Exchange I joined. Vicky at Life on Willie Mae Lane hosted and though I am sure it was no easy task, she even had participants fill out questionnaires to match us! Thank you Vicky...and thank you Ann who sent my two lovely ornaments.  She so thoughtfully picked out the pretty golden dove and shimmering acorns to complement my Secret Garden inspired tree.  Plus, she sent the sweetest card and we have already exchanged emails--the perfect way to usher in the holidays! Ann is not a blogger but we plan to keep in touch...

Yesterday was a very productive day at estate sales--so much so that I rushed home to get my awesome finds on Etsy so I could share them with any of you who may still be shopping for Vintage goodies!  Just click on the photos...

I was instantly smitten with this adorable trio of tumbling snowmen: SOLD

  5. Hello dear Cecilia! I am smiling to see that you and I received the same gold dove - isn't she a beauty?! And your shimmering acorns are simply lovely - I bet they look very pretty on the Christmas tree with the lights twinkling.

    You have a lovely blog and it was a joy visiting you. Enjoy your Sunday! Hugs

  7. Cecilia, I just love these vintage ornaments. They are so cute!!! Reminds me of my childhood. I sent Stephanie the same dove!

    And I want to say thanks again for my ornaments. I do love them! Each time I glance up at the tree, the first ornament that catches my eye is the little pillow that says 'Christmas is in the heart'. I immediately think of you and hope you have a very Merry Christmas! :)

  9. Cecilia I am so glad you joined in the exchange this year. Love the ornaments you received. So pretty.
    As for your finds, I think I like Mr. Santa Claus the best...the snowmen too. :)

  10. What cute goodies you received- I love the Secret Garden tree!

  11. I don't know how I missed seeing this earlier, but please forgive me! I have been sick...in fact I am up now on a work night coughing at 3 AM! Anywho, I love the ornaments Ann sent. Those acorns are just beautiful! Your tree is lovely. I hope you have a blessed and beautiful Christmas Cecilia! And, thanks again for joining the exchange.

    Hugs, Vicky
