Ornament Swap and More Pretty Packages

The goodies for the lovely Monica's Deck the Halls Ornament Swap have been sent and received - now we can have the big reveal! I was partnered with the very talented Tamy. She mentioned that she likes silver and green. These bottle brush stars have sweet silver beads and I found this sparkly green star at Home Goods.

I had some vintage green glass ornaments and sparkly silver ribbon and found this shimmery green ribbon to top it all off. I liked how the ornaments were placed here and there but now that I look at this photo, I'm thinking I should have placed them in a more orderly fashion.

My goodies from Tamy arrived today. She sent these adorable pipe cleaner candy canes...

...and this cute little notebook perfect for keeping track of all my Christmas lists.

She also sent along these lovely handmade wreath ornaments with the most darling vintage images.

This sparkly poinsettia found a home rather quickly.

I also received the striped and mercury glass ornaments. Thanks Tamy!

I received another package of goodies today. This time some scrumptious glittery items ordered from Andrea. I love this Bethany Lowe Winter Wish wand and it is much larger then I realized - a happy surprise!

I also snatched up this wonderful Wendy Addison Merry Christmas sign.

Well that is it for now girls! Lots more to come!

Lots of beauties here Karla! I love that pretty and unique!

I just love that Merry Christmas sign! OH I want one of those!!

xoxo Heather

p.s.- you asked about my glitter and how i pour it back. I usually glitter over top of a huge plastic bowl...then when I am done I pour it into a little cup and dump it back in the container. Sounds like you do something similar only with the funnel. :))
