My Secret Santa Gift
Oh, am I a lucky girl! Santa was VERY good to me this year. I received my Secret Santa Gift, from Molly Alexander. She organized the exchange, and 12 of us were in it. I've never done this before, so it was new to me. This was a lot of fun to anticipate getting a gift in the mail, from someone I don't know well yet.

I love my beautiful necklace Molly made me. She had everyone exchange some information about themselves before the exchange, our favorite colors, things we like, etc. Isn't that a good idea?
I mentioned my favorite color was blue, and I loved anything old, and I think I mentioned bees too! She couldn't have nailed it any better. I am so impressed with her craftsmanship and design. Way cool.
Isn't that little bee to die for? What a cutie! I know they symbolize nature, and renewal. What else do they represent? They go back to Roman days and I believe, even the Egyptians. Anyway, I love them.
So thank you again Molly, for setting up and organizing the exchange, and inviting me to be a part of it. I really love my necklace and will be proud to tell everyone my new friend Molly made it!
Please visit Molly's site to see what everyone else made. People are just receiving their gifts, so they might not all be posted yet.
Merry Christmas everyone! Ho, ho, ho!
