Ornament Swap Recieved



I did a ornament swap with Marsha at Marsha's Musings and my partner is  Birgit at BiWubaer on the Blog ...she sent me a fantastic gift in return...check out what I sent her Here ..  mine really pails in comparision to what I recieved....Birgit is from Germany. I spent 4 years in Berlin, Germany and I just loved Christmas time over there, so beautiful. So on with the treasures...

The box showed up at my house looking like this....



I thought, "Oh No this doesn't look good"


here is what was inside..Birgit said it was all there, so to see if all is safe


This beautiful card

That opens to be and advent calendar..
I am so sending this to my grandkids this year


then this lovely ornament, embellished with all kinds of gems and sparklies


and look at the dimensions to this...it is just lovely


it come with Directions....


because there is more...this lovely little bear named
Merry X. Mas
he is so soft and plush
Birgit makes these little bears herself


look at that little face...you have to love him


and his cute little angel feathers with a special little name tag


All the details are just perfect...I will treasure him for always..

I just adore my gifts from Birgit.


and he is now joined with his friend that I bought when I was in Berlin so many years ago..

two little German bears living together in the USA with me

Merry X. Mas is the first of Birgit's bears to come to live in the States.
Am I blessed or What!!


this is Merry X. Mas the night before his travels at Birgits home...so nice and tucked in
so sweet isn't he


Birgit is as sweet as her little bears..please pay her a visit at her blog and see all the little personalities she has created with love for each one.

Hi DeeDee,

I'm so glad my part of our swap has finally arrived - although I still believe they played soccer at DHL with that poor parcel... ;O) And most of all I am glad that you liked it - I have no doubt Merry will have a loving new home, you are such a gentle person, girl! Our swap was so much fun and the best part is - beside the beautiful ornaments I received from you - that I got to know you!

Bye for now!
Birgit
