Christmas in the Kitchen Swap!
Cutest Swap Announcement Ever!
I just participated in a Christmas swap sponsored by Erica of Golden Egg Vintage. The swap was one-on-one with Erica assigning the partners. My partner was Marci of Parsley Vintage. I like meeting new bloggers through a swap...they soon become new friends. Marci's blog is a lot of fun...she has a wise-cracking sense of humor that I really enjoy. I have a hard time being serious myself...as some of you have probably noticed.
The point of the swap was to make two Christmas decorations with a vintage Christmas theme, along with a card or tag and a favorite Christmas recipe. Of course we'd also send a treat and a few crafting or holiday goodies as well.
Marci's Fun Creations!
Such Festive Swap Goodies!
I am still in awe of this totally unique snowman scene. I wish I had thought of it...lol!
It looks so cute on my kitchen counter.
Tart tins make the cutest decorations. I have it on my curio shelves near the stove.
Marci included some German scrap Santas for my German Christmas décor.
This is one handsome fellow!
Yummy card from Pinterest!
Kitchen Treats for Marci...
This Spice Tin Santa was made with a large cinnamon tin...8 oz. size.
He's a shelf sitter.
Aunt Maurine's Sugar Cookies.
My kids' favorite Christmas cookies.
Toy Pan Snowman...simple but cute!
Some of the swap goodies...the treat box is filled with truffles.
Looks tasty enough to lick the computer screen...lol!
A Little Bit Country Porch
Front porch on a 65 degree December day.
This is the second year I have done a rustic/country kind of thing.
Baker's rack by the front door.
I put my little red truck outside this year.
Every thing is wired to the rack so it won't blow away
I found this wooden sled at a new thrift store in town.
The packages are chunks of wood left over from building the pergola.
Not much else is new.
I love this darling Candy House cover.
Thank you, Marci and Erica!
May visions of Sugarplums dance in your head!
