AWB Secret Santa Ornament Exchange

This year, the Arkansas Women Bloggers group organized a Secret Santa ornament exchange.  The swap was for homemade ornaments...and I got some ADORABLE additions to my tree from Julie at Eggs and Herbs

My FAVORITE was this adorable lace ball!  She used some shabby chic stuff like twine, pearl pins, a lace doily to make this awesome Christmas ball. What she didn't know is that most of our ornaments are they fit right in our tree!

I also got this awesome painted bell.  It is stamped...I'm not sure if she did that herself or if she just painted it, but its beautiful!

And I was also gifted two of these crazy cute burlap and button balls!  I adore these too!

A huge thank you to Julie!  She was a great Secret Santa!  She even threw in some yummy smelling soap too!

You can see the ornaments I made here....

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed them! I made the bell ornament out of clay and I even crocheted the doily on the first ornament! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
