Today mom and I are participating in the Holiday Ornament Swap and our partner was no other than our hostess Sally.
We received our lovely ornament a few weeks ago and it has been sitting in our window until mom put up a small Christmas tree that was my grandma's. The ornament is now hanging with our wooden ornaments from Germany.
There was a lovely note from Sally. The bead is from Karen Totten and the rest of the ornament was handcrafted by Sally.
Both mom and I love all the elements she combined into one piece!!! We had so much fun sitting on the couch passing the ornament back and forth (and for those who didn't know I am finally at mom's house now - I have been for the last three weeks). The cats also wanted to get into the fun of looking at the ornament - they loved that bead!
The backside is perfect for today - I think we are close to 8 inches of snow. Mom has been a shoveling fiend - she shoveled her driveway and then went to my house and shoveled it too (I just found out yesterday I have a sinus infection and was told to rest and mom is taking that to the tee - she won't let me help out at all!).
