Palma, at http://milliande.ning.com had a wonderful international vintage ornament exchange for Christmas. It was called a Wichtel, which is German for Secret Santa. Many people signed up from all over the world.
As Christmas neared, the members started to receive their gifts from their secret Santa. They can be viewed on the site http://milliande.ning.com/group/art-exchanges/forum/topics/gallery-for-2011-wichtel-ornament-swap.
The artistic talents of these lovely ladies is nothing less than amazing. The ornament that was to be sent to me was never made or sent. Palma, bless her heart, has arranged for another kind spirit to make an extra ornament for me. I wait with anticipation for its arrival.
The ornament I made went to Maine. I hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it. Here is the Wichtel ornament That I made.
