holiday swoon-along!

I was beginning to have Swap Withdrawal and so when I spotted this little call to action about a Shabby Pink Christmas Swap I signed right up! Not only did the swap lead me to find Sarah and her lovely blog but I was paired with my fun (and funny) blogging pal M over at Tales from an OC Cottage!

Over here in the OS (that's Ocean State) it hasn't been very sunny but I attempted some pics anyway. What M assembled for me was like a greatest hits of her recent beautiful posts!
Ready to SWOON-along?

glittered sea stars - they are like her signature piece(s)

glittered wishes

glittered vintage post card (my favorite)

presto change-o ornament!

a glittered wonderland

bright pinks and aquas!

M's dreamy photography on a card

Thanks so much to M and Sarah for adding extra sparkle to my holidays!

I hope my package gets to the OC soon. It sure is taking its time!
