I Have the Most Awesome Traveling Scarves Secret Swap Pal!!

I came home from bringing Sarah to the orthodontist to find that the mail had come!! There was a big Priority box marked "Secret Swap". At first, I thought it was my final SP 12 package, but then I remembered that my moderator is handling my final package (I got flaked on) and would have no reason to be "secret". My address was the return address, so that wasn't help. Then I realized, "duh!" it is my TSG Swap for December. I was expecting a much smaller package for that!! WOW!

I opened it up to find it full of smaller wrapped gifts with a letter:

The letter explains that it is a "12 Days of Christmas" deal. :) Each present is numbered from 1 - 12 (two #12s) and I am to open one per day until Christmas. :)


Since I was to start on December 13 and today is the 16th, I got to open 4 today. :) So.....

On the First Day of Christmas my TSG Swap Pal sent to me...........



Adorable hand painted (possibly by my pal??) pins! A Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and a snowman. :)

On the Second Day of Christmas my TSG Swap Pal sent to me...........


I had a very curious, very eager to help 3-year old, so Michael got to open one while Molly looked on.



Fresh Friends air freshener in Winterfresh Pine scent! This is so cute and now resides on my mantle. :)

On the Third Day of Christmas my TSG Swap Pal sent to me...........


A red jingle bell ornament. :) This baby will be going on my tree as soon as we put it up (most likely this weekend). I let Molly (9 years old) open this one since Michael got to open the last one. :)

On the Fourth Day of Christmas my TSG Swap Pal sent to me...........



Teeny glass snowman earrings! These things are just the cutest, teeniest glass items. They must have been very carefully hand crafted because the loop on top of each snowman is a loop of glass, too! I can't wait to wear them. :)

So, thank you so much, TSG Secret Pal!! I will be posting each of the remaining days as I open them. It is taking a lot of restraint not to dig into them all right now. But then I think about the fact that there are bound to be some down days coming and having these little treats to look forward to each day will be such a bright spot. Wow... I'm actually getting teary thinking about that. Thank you again!!!!
