Ornament exchange

I had the opportunity to participate in the first ornament exchange sponsored by One Artsy Mama.  I was paired with Megan from Chaos Served Daily.  We were able to contact each other and get to know interests, color schemes for decorating, etc.  Megan sent me this beautiful hand-stamped ornament:
It will work well on "my" tree.  However, this year it's hanging out with all the family ornaments to provide less temptation for a certain 3-year-old boy.  (We're already at one "pull tree over on top of himself" incident this year.  I suppose it could be worse.)

For my part in the exchange, I thought and thought and changed my mind and finally settled on inventing a crocheted wreath.  I added some beads for holly berries and topped it off with a big rickrack bow. (my apologies for a blurry photo, I was in a hurry to get it mailed)
I hope Megan loves my creation.

What's your favorite holiday decorating color scheme or theme?

I do indeed love it! I'm a fairly new knitter (about a year now) and am in awe that you could make up a pattern, and such a lovely one...I'm so happy you were my "swap partner" and that I discovered your blog that way!
