patriotic ornie swap - from my partner to me

I had so much fun participating in Viv's Patriotic Ornie Swap! Today my package from my partner arrived in the mail YIPPIE YIPPIE YIPPIE! I felt like it was my birthday, I was so excited and couldn't wait to open it up. In fact I forgot to take photos of the box and do the slow unveiling, I was so excited. Thankfully I remembered before I removed my darling ornaments from their goodie bags.

My partner was Michelle (and her daughter, Ashley - they are a mom and daughter team who enjoy crafting together - how great is that?! Reminded me of my mom, we loved crafts and sewing too.) They enclosed a note that everything they crafted with was from an estate sale, which I just love.

Michelle and Ashley made me a trio (!!!) of the most adorable owlie ornaments, so precious. They each sit on the cutest perch - a red, white or blue, poker chip.

They also sent me the best patriotic decorative piece! So festive and fun, with the tinsel like fireworks going off. I love the vintage photo and there are so many added details - a Bingo card base, buttons, flags, a sparkly spangley ornament and shooting stars. 

Thank you so much Michelle and Ashley, I love my things and it was a pleasure to be your swap partner. 

Thank you so much Viv, for hosting this fun swap!

Happy Fourth of July to everyone!
