"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love!"~Hamilton Wright Mabie
Hello friends. Can you believe we only have a week left until Christmas day? Have you finished your preparations? I haven't, but I'm working on it.
I'm joining Amy at Love Made My Home, for the Christmas card exchange that Amy was kind enough to organize for us this year. This is the third year Amy has hosted this fun Christmas event for bloggers. Once everyone had signed up for the exchange, Amy matched us up with someone to send and receive a card from. This is the first time I've participated, and I thought it was great fun.
My partner in the Christmas card exchange was Vee, who blogs at A Haven For Vee. I have been fortunate to get acquainted with Vee through our mutual blogs over the past four or five years. She is a very dear person, and I was so excited to send a card to her.
Above is the beautiful card that I received from Vee. It's such a pretty Christmas scene. I love the brightly lit house with smoke rising from the chimneys and snow on the ground and trees. I can just picture a big table inside, laden with all kinds of Christmas foods and maybe a big punch bowl filled with eggnog. :)
I hope Vee doesn't mind if I share what she wrote in the card because it was such a sweet message. Her last sentence says, "This scene reminds me of Mitford." I had to smile when I read that, because I have posted several times about the town of Mitford, created by Jan Karon in her wonderful books. I've always wanted to see "Mitford" at Christmas, so I'll enjoy looking at this card during the Christmas season.
Thank you so much for the beautiful card and sentiments, Vee. Your card is hanging with the other cards we've received this year, where I can see it throughout the week.

Thank you, Amy, for hosting the Christmas card exchange. It was very kind of you to take time from your busy schedule to organize this. I thoroughly enjoyed participating and would love to join in again.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and reading -- I love your visits and comments! Wishing you Merry and Bright!
Warm Holiday Hugs,
