Adopting an Elf

Elf ornament

This cute little guy arrived in the mail on Saturday, a gift from my niece Brenda.

Brenda and Marilyn (my sister) have hosted a Cookie Exchange every December for 25 years, and every year, they create unique holiday items for each of their 25+ guests.

Brenda's 2015 collection for the Cookie Exchange included elves, Santas, and reindeer. 

a variety of items painted by Brenda over the years
These are just a few of the ornaments and decorations that Brenda has painted over the years. I think she has an amazing talent.

  4. The ornaments are all adorable. I think they could sell these as fast as they could make them. I had to look several times before I realized the elf is a key. How cute is that!!!
