Ornament Swap 2010: My Bounty!

This year is the first year I will have an official Christmas tree in our house and I thought what better way to adorn it than with an ornament from Micaela's Ornament Swap 2010! I was lucky enough to be paired up with a wonderful swap partner, Erin, who is a fellow Canuck [she's out west in the beautiful land of British Columbia] and has such a fantastic blog!

Yesterday, I received a wonderful package from Erin containing the cutest, most adorable little additions for my soon-to-be Christmas tree! I can't begin to thank her enough for her thoughtfulness [she read I loved elephants in a comment I made on Micaela's blog!] and originality [they were handpicked from an Etsy artist: MaiseyHandmade.]

love the twine and teeny tag.

I can't wait to put these guys up on our tree when we finally get it! Thank you so much, Erin! I hope you receive your ornament soon, if you haven't already! Canada Post promised me it would get to you safe and sound this week!
how perfect are they?

erin knows soft ornaments are best with a toddler exploring everything!

Awwww!!! Those are some cute litte fellows ; ) I was reminded of Disney's Heffalump ; ) They will look beautiful on your Christmas tree ; )

Oh those are so ridiculously cute- I would want to keep them out all year round!

Oh, I'm so glad you like your little elephants, Sheba! (they called them Pocket Pachyderms in the Maisey Handmade etsy shop... isn't that cute?)

Merry, Merry Christmas to you! My package hasn't arrived yet, but I'll let you know just as soon as it does. Can't wait to see your very first Christmas tree!

Sheba how long will you be in Nyc?
I have a Canon PowerShot SX1 IS - and just want some other little cameras to have some fun with : ) But can't wait until I get a real SLR camera.
Thank you for the good luck wishes. Indio's 2nd birthday : ) What are you guys planning to do while in NYC?

Those are the cutest ornaments ever. I love elephants, and to have them home-made (love Etsy!) makes them even more special!

Micaela December 15, 2010 at 11:36 AM  

these are sooo cuddly and a great addition to any christmas tree but better when you do have a tot in cotton socks running around ;)

THANK YOU for playing along in my ornament swap! i'm so glad you and erin met because she is just lovely! it's crazy to think we met last year through my swap isn't it? :)

an ornament and lifelong friendships created... bliss!

Happy holidays sweet girl xoxo
