Vicky's Christmas Ornament Exchange

I don't believe it, two posts in one day!  The Advent Calendar post for today is on the previous post for those who have been very kind in following these (I think the best and luckiest photo I have ever taken!).  However, I had to share with you the lovely Vicky's Ornament Exchange.  I received a beautiful package from Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose.
Her gifts were certainly enchanting and beautifully made.  This rosette was just gorgeous.
The centre piece finished it off perfectly, especially as I love a red and white combination.
What struck me most was that Stephanie had picked up that I love hearts and had made these for the back.
And then there was this delightful brooch.
Again, with the heart on the back.  This will be adorning my winter coat giving me a smile each time I wear it.
Then some wonderful gift tags.  I feel they may be just too good to use!
Such gorgeousness in one package and such talent from Stephanie!

Thank you to Vicky and to Stephanie.  If you haven't already visited, go along to view their beautiful blogs on the links above.  And, for those of you who are following the Advent calendar each day, once again, thank you for sticking with this and keeping me going! 

Take care.
