Wordless Wednesday - Secret swap

You know me by now ...it's impossible for me to be ... wordless today!

I joined in the Secret Ornament Swap run byJulie@
Abbily Ever After. My package from Louisa @ A Canadian in Mancester ,who was my secret partner, arrived yesterday.

I was so so ho surprised.



I failed at the "secret" - I totally lost the plot .I accidentally told my person I was their secret swap.

Dear Louisa was only required to send me one ornament but she sent me three,one for each of my boys. The teen got the wooden carved Canadian Mounted Police Moose, Sam the soft Canadian moose/deer which he loved and wouldn't let go of (I had till wait till he went to bed last night to get it off him) and Joel the soft Polar bear which he loved because it jingles too.

Louisa went with a Canadian theme and she sent a beautiful card too .Thank you Louisa you made my week.


Ps I can't tell you what the ornament I sent was
(it's still a secret till she gets it) and I forgot to take a photo . I didn't send a Kangaroo because it didn't seem Christmassy enough - maybe I should have.

PPS - Do you like our new header banner - it was designed by the talented Carleen @Revised Images. Go check her work out it is superb. I won a free design in a competition run by Le @Third on the right. So I can now tick this off my list

Beautiful.. the kids, the ornaments, the banner is very creative as well. =) Quite nice of an impression for a new visitor huh? ha..

While I was reading, I heard Mercy Me's song & I was surprised, starting to flip through the browsers, then I only notice it's from your page! ha.. I love that song! I guess you really capture my attention this time. I'll follow your blog for more 'surprises' now.

Take care.
