Incoming! (Midwest)

After much anticipation and extreme impatience on my part, my Swap Ornaments are finally arriving. Whoopee! I have received 4 so far. That's half. And, of course the bonus ornament from Laurie. I'm so excited.

This first picture is the ornament from Emily in California. She must be a graphic designer type because her label, card and tags all worked so well together paper wise, type wise and color wise. Just yummy.

This second photo shows the others grouped together. I really like how they all work as a set with the reds, ribbons, and transparent materials. The far left ornament is simple yet intricate with it's detailed curved red wires. Laurie's ornament is second from the left. You can see more photos of it if you scroll down through our blog. Makes me want to buy more vintage buttons. I love it. The next ornament from Lindsey is a resin (I think) ornament with glass beads on the inside. Will be neat in front of the tree lights. And the last from Lauren is glass (hand cut maybe?) with glass beads and a mirror. I like the concept of reflection at this time of year and it will also be interesting in front of the tree lights.

I have four more ornaments to go. I will be at the door waiting for the mailman again tomorrow! Oh, and Laurie, I can't wait to see pictures of the ornaments you received (hint. hint.)
