Fairies, Birds and Mice....Oh My! An Enchanted Ornament Swap

Val from Yarni Gras hosted an Enchanted Ornament Swap and as usual, I couldn't pass it up.
I even won one of these little mushrooms from Val.
It is so cute and my first mushroom too!
Thanks Val!!
(I borrowed your picture too)

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the person who sent to me was my sweet blogger friend Missy from Fairy Child Heirlooms. I received a beautiful dish towel that she made, some yummy peppermint bark that Missy and her girls made and then the most beautiful little fairy ornament.

I just think she is so pretty! She reminds me of fairies from storybooks that I looked at as a child. This little fairy is not getting put up at Christmas but she is going to be out all year long where I can enjoy her.
Thanks Missy for the wonderful package!!

Here is what I sent to my secret partner, Jennie from J. Nichelle. The first thing on her list of things she liked was birds. I made a couple different things before I came up with this little cone that I filled with a bird and some other doodads.

Then I made her the little mouse in the walnut shell ornament.
It reminds me of Thumbelina.

and then I sent her kids a couple of my mice candy cane holders.

Thanks Jen for letting me borrow your photos! They turned out a lot better than mine did. I had fun with this swap and if you like nature based and enchanted ornaments
Val is hosting a year around swap for 2010.
It is called "A Year of Enchantment" and every month there will be a different theme and by the end of 2010 you will have 12 enchanting ornaments for your tree.
Be sure and stop by Val's swapper blog to get more info and sign up for the swap.
