I participated in an ornament swap organized by lovely Brittany at Unexpected Surprises, I was paired with the equally lovely Becky from The Details are in the Fabric..
The pacakge arrived a few days ago & I was so excited to see my ornament.
It was a pickle.
It's a tradition in Becky's family, & she decided to pass it on to my family. I LOVE it!
For those of you who don't know, the pickle ornament gets hidden in the tree. The first person who finds the tree has good luck for the entire new year! If a little one finds the pickle, he or she gets something extra special from Santa.
My stepdad's parents always had a pickle on their tree...and I never found it.
Now I'm going to be the one who hides the pickle somewhere deep in the tree!
So Becky - thank you, thank you, thank you!! I love it, & I only hope that you like your ornament just as much!
