The Great Holiday Blog Swap

I’m always excited when a package is delivered to my door, but the holiday season makes packages even more special, especially when it is a package from The Great Holiday Blog Swap. Erika of Cat Eyes & Skinny Jeans created the swap and was, also, my swap partner.  The box she sent me was filled with old fashioned holiday spirit!

The sled ornament quickly found it’s way to my tree while the adorable Christmas mouse took up its station nearby. The mini Ciaté nail polish is a gorgeous black and silver glitter and has a fantastic name: humbug. I used it in my Christmas manicure, and it will be perfect for New Year’s Eve. Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol was on my list to read this season, so receiving this lovely version from Puffin Chalk made me very happy. My favorite gift is the cozy blanket scarf, which I wore on Christmas. I love that it’s trendy but, also, has a timeless feel to it. With snow in the forecast, I will be wearing this a lot.

 Thank you Erika for the wonderful gifts!
