Twelve Days of Christmas - Day Four

Another truly amazing day of gifts for me! Today I opened such a beautiful little treasure:

This beautiful pin features Marie Antoinette as the "Queen of Hearts".  My photo doesn't do her justice. She is protected by a layer of  epoxy and mounted on a metal heart. Kimberly, she is so amazing!

And here is what I created for Kimberly today:

This little Eiffel Tower ornament is embellished with a wreath created with vintage glass glitter and pearls.

Joyeux Noel!

Twelve Days of Christmas -Day Three

My lucky Twelve Days are continuing as my wonderful partner is absolutely spoiling me with some of the most fabulous little gifts! Here is the treasure of day three:

Aren't these little clothespins just so creative! I love them!

And here is what Kimberly should open on her day three:

Isn't it funny that my gift for her is also made out of a clothespin? 

I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful partner. I am so delighted each day! I hope your holiday season is as magical is mine is turning out to be!

Twelve days of Christmas Day Two

It has been such a holiday treat to open a sweet little gift every day between now and Christmas! Today my surprise was a set of adorable little burlap tags with lovely little images sewn on them. Thank you so much Kimberly! You are so creative! I hope you like my little gift of a miniature couple figurine. I just thought they were so cute.

Twelve Days of Christmas Swap Day One

The season of Christmas is upon us and what a wonderful way to enjoy it than to celebrate for twelve days with little gifts each day! I hosted this swap in my Marie Antoinette Mail Art group, and my "Les Douze Jours de Noel" swap partner, Kimberly, has rewarded me with such a beautiful group of packages. I opened the first one and was so delighted with a beautiful little bottle.

And here are the twelve little packages that I sent to Kimberly. I hope she has opened her first gift so I am not ruining the surprise, but it is a little Marie Antionette shoe ornament that I created.
