PERSEPHONE SECRET SANTA
Today is the 15th, which means that today is Reveal Day for the Persephone Secret Santa gift exchange! I joined in on the fun over at BOOK PSMITH - she was dreaming of a grey Christmas (grey as in Persephone Classics). In order to celebrate Persephone books, Stacy hosted a gift exchange, a Persephone Secret Santa gift exchange to be exact. All we had to do was gift each other a Persephone book that we did not own and we could include little treats, such as bookmarks, journals, Christmasy items, etc. And we had to reveal who our Secret Santa was today, December 15th, 2009! Pretty nifty idea, eh? Well, thanks to Stacy, I am quite sure all of us Secret Santas had a great time with this exchange - I know I did! By the way, don't forget to check out Stacy's interesting book blog, BOOK PSMITH. And so, my wonderful Secret Santa for the Persephone gift exchange was Meredith over at dolce bellezza. She sent me a copy of Frances Hodgson Burnett's, The Making of a Marchioness. The cover is beautiful and from what I have read about the book, it sounds like it will be a delightful and interesting read. Along with the book, Meredith sent me a lovely Japanese bookmark and some fluffy candy cane colored socks and a Christmasy smelling spray. The card she included was very thoughtful and explained why she chose this book for me. All I can write is: Thank you Meredith! Merry Christmas to you!! Oh, and don't forget to check out her blog - dolce bellezza - its such a great read! As far as my gift - well I was Secret Santa to Marie over at Boston Bibliophile and if you want to see what I sent her, go and check out her great blog. And so the Persephone Secret Santa gift exchange was a success. Thanks again to Stacy for organizing it all! Happy Holidays everyone!!
