    They are very pretty…

  •  Anonymous #78777

    Nice! Love the Santa made out of buttons!

  •  Anonymous #78776

    Ok this picture stuff is not working with me today!! Hopefully you can see these pictures better because I really want you to see the beautiful details of these ornaments.

  •  Anonymous #78775

    I need to thank Susan for the beautiful package I received. Hope you all can see her wonderful work and all the little touches she put on these ornaments. They are very special and I will love putting them on my tree next year.

  •  Anonymous #78220

    Glad to see you again. Looking forward to seeing what you been up to…

    well Jill, I’ve been hiding. Totally not meaning too… but the road my life has taken in the last 4 months as kept me coming and going so fast! I’ve even neglected my blog! I might ‘come out’ again on here in the next couple weeks to really show y’all what I’ve been so busy with!

    Thanks for thinking of me, and as a New Year’s resolution, I am going to try to stop in more! 🙂

  •  Anonymous #78184

    Jill, thanks for sharing your gifts. Unfortunately mine never arrived.

  •  Anonymous #78111

    Hillbilly, I almost contacted you through your blog to see if you were interested this year…I’m sorry now that I didn’t!

  •  Anonymous #78110

    I got mine from Janelle aka The Farmer’s Wife—it was worth the wait! In the first photo of the fireplace the frame with the red center and white snowflake came from Janelle. The red in it is an upcycled cable sweater, so cute!! We decided to do the mantle in valentine red for the next month and the framed snowflake was perfect! The collage on the second photo came from her and the zipper flower pin too as an apology for being late in sending it off…no apology was necessary for sure, but I sure love them! Thanks Janelle!

  •  Anonymous #78032

    oh! Looks like you ladies had another great year of the ornie exchange!!! Wish I wasn’t so busy that I could have joined in!

  •  Anonymous #78021

    Chelcass, I think it is wonderful for you to offer your ornaments. Hopefully all the ornaments have been sent out by now. I am sure they will be welcomed for Christmas 2011.

  •  Anonymous #78002

    If there is anybody who didn’t receive an ornie I have cute ones I can send. Send me a e-mail with your name and address and I will happily send one to you.

  •  Anonymous #77794

    Oh Dear, I just saw this post and I know it is past the dealine. Did you by chance have a odd number of people who joined?? I have ornaments made and can have in mail tomorrow. If I’m too late please put me down for next year.

    Merry christmas everybody!

    I hate it when my computer goes nuts and I lose half my groups.


  •  Anonymous #77786

    Thanks LuAnn I just opened mine. It is a cool hand full of old Christmas lights. LuAnn twisted some old strong wire around each of them and curled the ends & she has tied on a nice ribbon. I right quick added them to the buttons on my yard stick. I think the yard stick is going to be our decoration for this year. Things have been dramatic & wild around here – we are doing ok. MIL is in Muncie IN in a psych ward by judge’s order. She went off her nut on Friday. We have to move her stuff to a storage building real soon plus keep up with regular work. I did need a little light to brighten my day. Thank you for brightening my day LuAnn!

  •  Anonymous #77769

    That is a zipper, some yo yo’s and some very old buttons only a junker would truly appreciate.

  •  Anonymous #77768

    Copperhead: Thank you so much for my ornie. It fits right in on my tree. Very ingenious. LuAnn

    Merry Christmas to all.

  •  Anonymous #77565

    Count me in!! 🙂 Diane

  •  Anonymous #77562

    Mysterious moderator here. Yes I’m a junker, I’m female, that’s all you get. Sometimes Moderators have to do things that are not popular, so I choose to remain a mystery. Yes I do like reading all of your posts and yes I do want to respond from time to time, Maybe I do??????

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  •  Anonymous #77558

    I’m in LuAnn

  •  Anonymous #77555

    I would like to sign up

  •  Anonymous #77553

    I’d love it and I’ll volunteer to organize it! Send me an email with your mailing address and after I have all the names, I’ll draw to match people up and email everyone their “secret santa”.

    Be sure to respond also to this thread so people know that some are signing up.

    I also have to say I think it’s kind of funny that we can shout out “Hey Moderator!” and there you (Moderator) are. Makes you mysterious. Are you a male or female? Do you like junk too or just got the job? Do you ever want to throw in a suggestion as you read? Do you want to be part of the ornament exchange?

    My email: jrruskamp@msn.com

    Deadline to sign up: December 7 and send it off by December 15. How does that sound?

  •  Anonymous #77550

    Go for it, One of you will need to organize it.

  •  Anonymous #77546

    Yea, I really liked it. Hey Moderator, can we do it again?
