Ornament swap (141)

I arrived home from my exercise class today to find a lovely surprise waiting under the doormat on the front door step (did you read that - exercise class - the first time I've felt up to going for about six months - I'm tired now, but hope it doesn't wipe me out).

My ornament has arrived - for the swap arranged by Jo-Ann Carter, at The Carter Clan. I ripped open the envelope and the bubble wrap inside and 
all of this loveliness tumbled out. There's a red felt stocking simply bursting to overflowing with sweets - candy canes, chocolate bars and loads of Hershey's Hugs. I'm sure they're called chocolate kisses over here. The burning question is - will the sweets last 
until Christmas, or will I have to refill it? There's also a snowman tree ornament, and a musical bauble that I'm sure will drive us all demented, and a lovely pattern for Christmas tree ornaments. I'm sure I'll be able to make some of those for the tree this year.

And the piece de resistance (you'll have to imagine the accent over the e, my computer doesn't have one) is the cutest little angel. She's so simple and so effective, and will look lovely hanging up at Christmas time. She has a brownish red gingham dress and wonderful hair that looks just like mine first thing in the morning! If only I had the wings to go with it. 
Thank you Tara, at Just Bergie Boyz for my lovely present, and thank you too to Jo-Ann for organising the swap.

What a nice surprise! Must have been a reward for exercising. Maybe, I'll give it a try.
