Ornament Swap Blog Hop

Is everyone ready for the Holidays?  If not, maybe you will get in the spirit by hopping through the Blog Hop for the reveal of 31 lovely ornaments.
My ornament swap partner is Alice Peterson.  Get a cup fo coffee or the beverage of choice and enjoy.

My partner could not decide which ornament to send so I am very lucky, I received two!

Now sit back and start hopping:

A thank you goes out to Sally, our wonderful host! I wish you all very Happy Holiday Season.      
List of Participants


  1. Hi Bette,
    Those are beautiful ornaments you received from Alice. I know you will enjoy them for years to come.
    Merry Christmas,

  2. These are both so pretty! I love the long, dangling effect the beads make! Truly beautiful! Merry Christmas!

  3. They are both totally different, and awesome! I have about 6 trees that I put up each year, so that would have been great for me. :) Love the sparkle in the blue one, and the colors in the green/red one are really cool.

  4. Bette, I'm so thrilled to be your partner this year. I finally got our tree up and your lovely ornament is hanging front and center so I can see it all day long. Thanks so much!!

  5. Both ornaments are really lovely! I especially like the one with the red and ivory swirl pendant. Ant the blue one could hang in your home year-round!

  6. I love the opposing feel of both. The one is the quiet beauty of the season. And the other is a bright loud celebration of the holiday :-)

  7. I really love what Miss Alice sent you. Two very different ornaments but so pretty for your tree! Miss Alice was my partner last year and I never put my ornament on the hangs in my studio all year long! Enjoy the day! Erin

  8. I love the ornaments that Alice sent you, they are lovely! I love how different they both are, from the quiet calm of the blue to the Dr. Suess inspired bright cheery Whooville Christmas!

    I've already been to Alice's post, your solder pendant style ornament has such a wonderful vintage feel, beautifully done Bette!!

    Thank you for participating in the hop and have a Christmas filled with peace, love and joy!! Hope to see you sometime in the New Year!

  9. Hi Bette, what great ornaments Alice sent to you! And the one you made her is so beautiful too! Very impressive, both of you!

  10. Love that red with the lime green! I'm sure it catches you eye every time you walk by the tree!

  11. Hi Bette,
    Lucky you, three ornaments! They are lovely! Wishing you a happy holiday season!

  12. Hi Bette! They look great on the tree! And double the fun! I really like the ornament you sent as well - I too adore paper!

  13. The ornaments are just bursting with holiday fun! I really enjoy them. I liked reading on your partner's blog about the inspiration of the color theme for one of them. It was really cool how she got inspiration from the Grinch. I remember watching that almost ever Christmas as a kid and still enjoy it.

    And the piece you made was nice! And I'm smitten with that lampwork glass heart.

  14. Hi Bette,

    Love the grinch ornament and the ornament you sent as well as the lam work heart. Hope you have a fantastic Holiday!!!
