Persephone Secret Santa 2010

Thank you to my Persephone Secret Santa! What a treat to receive a beautiful copy of The Winds of Heaven by Monica Dickens, and an afterward by AS Byatt. Stacy from was my Secret Santa and she was so thoughtful to include a cute little tape measure for all of my crafty projects :)

I had so much fun on the giving end too (getting to know my S.S. through her blog, choosing a book, thinking of the little additional gift, wrapping, and even delivering it right to her door!). I will definitely be participating again next year.

A BIG thank you to Paperback Reader for hosting the Secret Santa, and organizing everything. Here is a list of all the Secret Santa swaps--it's really fun to see what books were given, and all of the surrounding creativity! I am sorry for the delay in the post--I was stuck in Minneapolis for three days during the huge snow storm, and have been running around trying to get caught up.

Merry Christmas!!

Such a pretty gift & beautiful photographs to go it justice! Enjoy your first Persephone book & thank you so much for participating.

I love that we are all looking forward to the next swap!

I am so glad I got to know your blog through this exchange. I wanted to leave comments on some of your posts but was afraid I would give myself away as your Secret Santa. Now I can follow and comment freely:) I hope the Dickens is as good as it sounds...enjoy and have a very Merry Christmas!
