Guess Who? It's Secret Santa! (WIN A PRIZE)

4 sleeps to Christmas?? WHHHHA? Where has the month gone?

One little highlight this year has been playing Santa Claus in a blogger exchange.

BloggerSecretSanta

The rules were simple - send at least 2 items (i sent three but 2 was the min) to your selected Santee while you wait anxiously for the postman to deliver your surprises.

SecretSantaGift1Received-1

I've received my first item - a little 'believe' vase filled with chocolate kisses. No wrapping, note or other clues were were the box.

I was excited to show you what I sent out until I realized - doh - that would spoil the surprise. Not the most pointy star on on the tree am I? So how about a good old fashioned guess? Who do you think I have? Hop over to some of the other santas logs to check out their booty and take a guess at who might have sent it.

4 men 1 lady *** bryn alexandra *** emilyaclark
house of smiths *** the inspired room
isabella and max rooms *** la dolce vita
making it lovely *** you stir me *** thrifty decor chick
tenjune *** lovely little details ***
young house love *** pure style home *** miss mustard seed

There are 17 of us in all (Ive listed the posts above that have shared one or more of their gifts). Think you know Santa's secrets? Give it a guess. Leave your guesses in the comments - commenter with the most correct matches (min of 5) win!

    Thanks so much for organizing this!  It was lots of fun (although I was a little late sending my second gift!).  

    Merry Christmas!,
    Emily

  2. you know...there is a mathmatical way to do this, but I teach English.  Dammit.  It does sound like lots of fun, though, and if I had friends?  I would do something exactly like it.

     I didn't get a chance to post about the boot ornament and reindeer booties I got, but I'm still guessing... I would love it if when this is all over we could share our packaging~ as I see that my giftee hasn't figured out that her SS is ME! Is that bad? Would it spoil the whole point in having a SS? Who says we have to play by the rules;) Thanks for putting this all together~ it was so much fun!

    *If my giftee is reading this here's a lil hint~ your 2nd gift is scheduled to arrive tomorrow!

    Bryn is Miss Mustard Seed's
    YHL is Bryn's
    House of Smiths is Making it Lovely's
    Thrifty Decor Chick is Emily Clark's
    Isabella and Max is Pure Style's

  10. I only have one guess and that's that you are YHL's secret santa. Only b/c you said you sent three things and they received three ornaments in their gift box. Of course I guess the box counts as one gift too but...oh well. That's my guess!
