Thank you Betty!


I received this nice care package from Betty in Paraguay - from the Christmas Ornament Swap I hosted.  This wooden ornament is rather big, several inches tall and very pretty!


While this is technically a key chain I'm glad she included it and I hung it on my tree as well.  It seem rather fitting as we were in the US Philadelphia this year. lol


I love the colorful doily!  I have not yet decided where to put it but I have used it in the background of a few photos recently.  Love the happy colors!


BTW - if you participated but still have not received anything please let me know.  I don't want anyone being left out!


  1. Is that a little leather sombrero??? How caaute!!

  2. What an awesome package! I'd love to participate next year :)

  3. Wow! What vivid colors in that last one! And the ornaments are lovely!! What a cool idea you had ... it looks like it was a huge success.

  4. fun, what wonderful memories for your tree!

  5. I´m glad you like them. Your photos make them look more beautiful than they really are.... :)

  6. I love this idea!!! Did you come up with it? Did you coordinate it or just jump on board? I love love love love the idea of ornaments from around the world!

  7. This CREEP never responded to package sent to her nor did she ever send me anything. And, as I previously noted, you are not responsible for her lack of action. I guess she was not raised in a barn. She even lied that she sent something to me...it doesn't take two months for a package to arrive from Montreal.


    Hope you had a nice holiday.


  8. The doily looks like lace, but it's woven I guess? Very nice!

  9. You got some really great treasures! Thank you for hosting the swap. I just now got to posting what I received - some really great handmade ornaments - http://forthejourney.net/2010/01/tangle-ornaments/
