Look what came in the mail yesterday? I assure you, my poor photography doesn't do these justice at all - this is the ornament for me created for the ornament exchange, sent by Melissa from NY. It looks absolutely marvelous (the way these things are aged is a mystery to me I might solve some day), and in her generosity, she tucked in a trio of primmie candy canes and a little LED tea light that had been roughed up to look like a small chunk of tree branch.
I haven't been in any hurry to jump forward into Yuletide decorating until right now - I can't wait to see these peeping out from the branches of my tree. Thank you Melissa! If you have a blog, please share. :)
