Much Love Monday {ornament swap!}

For four years now, I have been participating in Micaela's Christmas ornament swap. From that first Christmas, Micaela and I have been friends and have continued to send each other something pretty each year {it's just too marvellous a tradition to pass up, and it's always so much fun to pick out the perfect tree ornaments for one another}. My parcel from Micaela arrived this afternoon and I gasped when I opened it and discovered these inside...


I had "favourited" them on Etsy a while ago, and the instant I pulled back the tissue, I knew it was them. Aren't they pretty? They remind me of my Grandma & Grandpa's tree when I was a little girl. I love that I have a set for my own tree now. Thank you, thank you, thank you, sweet friend!

I love how this one looks next to my favourite little angel.

Now, on to this year's swap! My partner this Christmas was Amanda from Connecticut. I was lucky to be paired with someone so lovely. Amanda took the time to learn a bit about me through my blog, and picked out some fabulous vintage pieces she knew I'd love. Thank you so much, Amanda!

 Gorgeous gift tags that remind me of White Christmas {one of my favourite holiday films}

 A sweet little vintage Rudolph, and such a pretty handkerchief

Plus a homemade snowflake in my favourite colours

To see what I sent Amanda, check out her post here. I'm so happy I got it right :)

Did you take part in Micaela's ornament swap? If so, I'd love to hear about what you sent/received. And if not... why? It's way too much fun to miss.

  3. aw Megan, we missed you this year!

    E, it's so special we have this tradition especially since this is how we met <3 I decided to play sneaky and order from your etsy favorites ;) i knew that you wouldn't be getting them since the seller doesn't ship to Canada so I thought it was extra perfect! I also really love that there are four vintage bells and there are four sweet Pughs ;)

    I am glad you love them as much as I LOVED the glittery reindeer you sent, along with the fluttery pink one. I can't wait to share them on my blog!

    I LOVE the handmade one Amanda sent (such great details) and guess what? we have matching vintage Rudolphs! Amanda sent me one to match yours. <3 The twine bird you sent Amanda was beautiful and of course, i adore you support handmade as well and sent her a fluttery red paper flower ornament as well. I feel lucky you both sent me the same ornaments you sent each other without even knowing it :) You two are my favorites, which is why i was extra excited to pair you two together this year.

    Here's to happy mail and meeting new friends -- especially at a time we all could use joy in our lives. I love you dear friend xo
