NZ Christmas Ornament Swap...

Thought that I would post about the wonderful ornament swap that I have been involved in, organised by twenty cent mixture, thanks so much Louise!!! It was great fun opening each of the 5 little parcels wondering what treat was waiting inside. Now I want to do lot's more swaps, so keep me in mind if you know of any......

My contribution to the swap were these little needle felted Christmas tree's....

Here are the ornaments that I received, I love them all................
This is Plum pudding fairy who without a doubt is Talia's favourite, isn't she gorgeous. she came with the sweetest little note, we are going to treasure her for always!
This lovely little kiwi slice made out of felt.
A Sweet little pom pom made from fabric, the photo doesn't really do it justice, it's so sweet.
A cute little present (that T is dying to open) wrapped in fabric, it also has a little bell inside.
A cool wee Ika made out of recycled wool blanket and Tonga bark cloth, I love the shell button eye's.
All now hanging proudly on my Christmas tree, thanks to all the swapper's, my ornaments are all FABULOUS.............. X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
