Miriam's Festive Blog Swap

As you may remember from a previous post, I am taking part in Miriam's Festive Blog Swap where we are swapping Christmas tree ornaments across the globe. My ornament went off to Honore earlier in the month and when I returned home from work yesterday I found this!

Inside the box was some lovely coloured tissue paper on which was a card. Inside the card were some lovely words explaining why Wanda had chosen for me what she had. I was so touched by her words.
Under the tissue was this beautifully wrapped box. All hope of waiting to open it until we put the tree up went out of the window - I had to open it then!
And this is what I found. A 'couples' ornament as Wanda called it. She and her husband have collected 'couples' ornaments and she felt that having read my blog and my personal profile that I would appreciate one too and boy did I!

This is just so cute. It has a heart hanging down beneath it...
please excuse this being a bit blurry, Penny's hand was shaking as she held it for me!
..and when you pull on the hear Mickey and Minne snuggle closer together and it looks like Minnie is giving Mickey a kiss!
So thank you Wanda for a wonderful gift and thank you Miriam for organizing such a fun swap.
