Whitman Ornaments in the Mail!


What fun this swap has been to host. I have enjoyed peeking through the cellophane at the cutest Christmas ornaments ever and have wondered at the ones wrapped so that I can't see. So do please visit each blog and enjoy for yourself the art of all these talented ladies.


You will be so excited to unveil your ornament from Chris as each one is vintage sweetness that personifies this most special time of the year. Do you see the little Christmas Seal? I told you so..... VS!!


OMGosh, I nearly cried to unwrap Jenny's ornament of a very favorite holiday movie. Just imagine the time it took to recreate this magical movie in her shadowbox. Just look at the tiny little money! I love this ornament!


What a special treat to have Beth share one of her magical creations with us. Are you smiling at the S&H Savings Stamps?


Did you know you can also spell Sandy, CUTE? Every one of her ornaments is as sweet as this little red gingham church. Wait until you see the clever way she has created the way to hang her ornaments, too cute for words!


How fun are Shirley's, Bigby's Department Store ornaments! Window shopping never looked so fun. I can't wait for you to see the presentation Shirley has in store for you. You will feel as though you have been shopping yourself at Bigby's.


From My House to Your House, I thank you for joining me in this ornament swap; and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Elizabeth

How beautiful they all were...you gals really out did yourselves. I think it's amazing how different each one was...I mean basically it was all the same supplies, & we all basicaly like the same kind of stuff...but each one so different & yet looked like they should all be together..like you collaborated or something so it looked like a set. You ladies are fabulous!

Thank you Elizabeth, for your sweet words about my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed looking around. This swap looks like it was a lot of fun. And your felt gingerbread house is darling! My kitchen has a gingerbread theme during the holidays, so If I have time this month, I may try to make a little house similar to yours. You are always such an inspiration.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

How pretty all these ornaments are! I'm sure they were as much fun to create as they are fun to receive, Elizabeth.

These are all so adorable! Such inspiration tied up in such tiny little packages! I love all of the vintage touches each sweet little box held. I am so glad that you shared these with us! Guess what each member of my family is receiving tied to their present? Whitman Sampler boxes that I am going to collect when the candy is all gone ;) Have a wonderful night, Holly
