O Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches // Ornament Exchange

I had so much fun participating in this Ornament Exchange! Not only do I adore all the lovely hosts but I was paired with one of my favorites, Crystal! I couldn't have asked for a better partner (or friend. Even though we've never met I definitely count her as friend.) Her thoughtful ornaments are so special to me and I will cherish them every year when I dress up the Christmas tree.Ornament Exchange 2016
Crystal and I didn't give each other many guidelines because I feel like we know each other enough to wing it and yup, I was right. Crystal sent me not one but two ornaments and they are both totally me! In her note, Crystal explained that she choose the ruby slippers because she knew the girls and I are Oz fans (let me direct you here for picture proof.)

Crystal also chose a Willow Tree ornament because it is teacher oriented and she went on to compliment my teaching which was so sweet of her! I don't even think she knows I collect Willow Tree but I have myself a sweet collection going and that really touched my heart because my gramma started it for me and Brian has kept it growing; what an awesome gift.

And of course this wouldn't be a proper ornament exchange if you didn't see these beauties on the tree!

  10. Oh my gosh, PERFECT!! Crystal did such a great job!
    My mom bought us a pair of Dorothy's slippers after we'd moved from Kansas, and they are among my favorite hanging on the tree. "There's no place like home!' And that Willow Tree is simply perfect for you and your collection!
