Even though the heading (which I made way in advance of actually opening anything) says the sixth day I truly opened this one very last. It is from precious Jackie. Jackie doesn't have a blog but she is an art loving Texas girl who is a treasure.
And she is so clever, too. She mailed her ornaments out in these sweet little cookie tins. They were well protected through the postal system and quite cute, to boot.
The little tag with bells reminds me of the ones we used when I was a little girl. it looks so vintage to me. And inside that pretty red glittered bag is something special just for me.
Jackie's ornament is an assemblage featuring the tiniest
frozen Charlotte doll I've ever seen.
She is only about an inch or two high. Here's how Jackie described her ornament to our group, "The ornament is supposed to tell the story of a little girl wishing on a star for Santa to bring her a doll. The doll is under the tree (which is symolized by the little crystal salt shaker) in a package with ribbon (the wire) and bow on top. The red swirl of beads and the snowflake represent the snow outside."
I loved hearing about the story behind my beautiful ornament and I hope you enjoyed it, too. I has been yet another memorable exchange. These girls don't let anything hold them back from doing their best work. They are such sweet people who I am so happy to be able to share my Christmas with each year.
From the top of my tree to the bottom of my heart, I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas!
