2014 Ornament Exchange

 This was my very first time participating in 

I received this beautiful hand painted Santa from 

Isn't he adorable?

This sweet Santa fits in perfectly with my homemade ornaments.

She also sent me these Christmas cards that SHE painted.
This lady has some serious talent!

I love these cards so much.

A sweet gift!
This was so much fun! I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone got. 
I hope you'll visit Vicky and Cecila.
Both of these ladies are so sweet and talented.

I hope you were inspired!
Thank you for visiting Thrift My House.


  1. Good Morning Sherry, What a lovely gift. That will be an ornament that will hold a sweet memory each year when you put in on your tree. Her cards are delightful, I especially like the ones with the children :)
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Connie :)

  2. I still haven't even taken pics of your gift even though my husband at the candy bar! Now I know what I will do this morning!

  3. I agree with you - your Santa ornament is absolutely adorable! Love the look of real snow on his hat and belly. And you're right about Cecilia being so talented! I actually won a few of those precious holiday cards she sent you through a contest she had on her blog. So I know firsthand how beautiful her work and how talented she is. In fact, Cecilia and I have been blogging friends for a while since she follows my blog and posted sweet comments about an owl and angel I made so I sent them to her. I'm sure the two of you will develop a great friendship too!

  4. Holy Moly... she PAINTED those?! Beautiful!

  11. I just love the Santa Cecilia painted for you! She was my partner last year and I loved what she sent me. I also received some of her note cards. The Mary and Baby Jesus one must be new...I don't have that one. I love how you clipped them up! So pretty...:) I'm so glad you joined the exchange Sherry...thank you! Have a blessed rest of the weekend!

    Hugs, Vicky

  16. Such beautiful gifts you received. I can not believe how awesome those hand painted cards are. I love the way you displayed them.

  17. What a cute santa. Those cards are wonderful. The little boy in the orange car brings back memories.....I think we still have that car somewhere. Wasn't this so much fun?

  18. I'm really glad you like the cards and ornament! Did you know you can replace the snowflake with a photo? It's like a minature frame. :-) so glad to have met you! Have a blessed Christmas!
