White Elephant - No Way!

Hand-crocheted shawl

The Tuesday before Christmas, my TOPS (Take Pounds Off Sensibly) group gathered for a holiday party after our weekly weigh-in. Each person brought a wrapped, white elephant gift for the gift exchange.

I gasped when opening my package: inside was the pineapple shawl, pictured above, and a pair of slippers hand-crocheted by Charlotte. The shawl is the perfect length for my long arms and drapes gracefully. I have never received such a beautiful "white elephant."

  4. That is lovely and not a white elephant at all. I go to a Christmas Eve get-together with friends every year and the gift exchange is supposed to be white elephants too. But this year the gift I brought was the only white elephant. I consider a toothbrush that plays Justin Beiber songs while you brush your teeth a definite white elephant and do not consider neon wall art, diamond chip and topaz necklace, or a bottle of Crown Royal a white elephant, would you?

  5. That is such an awesome gift! You really lucked out! Good thing it wasn't a Yankee swap or you would have lost your gift for sure!!
