Trim the Tree Ornament SWAP

   Well here we go! The CHRISTMAS countdown... For me the rest of 2013 will be a Blur.  
          So much yet to do, so little time...  That's why I'm so Happy I made time early in the month for Crafts and other fun things.  You may have seen my earlier SNOW QUEEN blog.  Now I'm about to share an Ornament SWAP my friend Julie Weller included me in.  This GREAT group of TALENTED ARTITISTS got together to make and share.  
         Mine was a quilted Heart that included a piece of Vintage, Hand Tatted Lace from my Grandmothers Tablecloth that I had since she passed...It made my friends wasn't my intent but I had saved this lace for years and knew that one day I would know what to do with.  I also knew that this group of Ladies would appreciate the Sentimental Value of Grandmas Lace.  They all turned out a little different,
And I included the story of how I obtained the lace.        This is the box from Julie...all the way from California.  I was so excited because it came a day early...props to the USPS!   
  I absolutely could not wait to RIP into this box of TREASURES!  The first thing I GASP at is this Bird in a Bouquet from Lori Dams in Canada!

All HANDMADE  Beatiful works of ART!
 The WHITE TREE is by Kim Caldwell and the top hat is by Christine Barker.  So creative..and the TART TIN is so Vintage Looking...
This little Tree soldered to the top of a handmade SNOW GLOBE is by our Hostess Julie Weller..  Who's was having cancer radiated out of her body while Hosting the BEST SWAP EVER!  Love you Jules...
  Kudos to all the talented Gals that participated.... I'm overwhelmed by your TALENT and feeling so fortunate to have been included...   Merry Christmas to All.
