Christmas Exchange

I did a Christmas exchange with a group of women.

Beautiful vintage sugar bowl which she turned into a pin cushion. I shall display it gladly. Beautiful!
Can you tell I'm taking pictures on top of all the drop cloths in the dining room, kitchen and living room??? Hah......

This soap has the most wonderful and fragrant smell! I put it in my guest bath to fragrance up "le bain"!!

Okay, these chocolate covered peanuts didn't last out the day........uuhhhh, actually, they didn't last our the 1/2 hour! Painter and I split them. Darling magnet for my fridge. My fridge only has beautiful things on it. Roses and frou-frou calendars. There is also some wild huckleberry tea. Huckleberries grow wild out here in the west. Delicious.

And a sweet note from a simply lovely lady who does exquisite mosaics. And you should see this chickadee's house in Wyoming!!!!! Wooooooeeee, it's really something. She's a girly girl like me........;-)


  1. That sounded like so much fun and you what them. What a great idea!

  4. Oh Connie that gift was so you wasn't it? The pin cushion especially... Great fun... I can't remember if I told you I received the camera bag and just love it... what beautiful work you do... I will be doing a post on it soon... Thanks again so much... Have a very special day...


  5. Sweet! More chocolate.

    Cute pin cushion, never though of using a sugar bowl that way. It's much more fancy in the bowl than the plastic tote I keep all my sewing stuff.

    What fun!! It's like Christmas! lol


  6. Hi Sweetie,

  7. It looks like you got some wonderful goodies!!! I love that pin sweet!!!

  8. Hi Connie! Lovely things! Boy are you not the one to envy these days! You have a mess on your hands to get put back into place after the paintings done. I wish I could come and help you, but I can't. Still can't wait to see it all done. Take care honey! Deb

  9. Hi Connie :)

    What wonderful treasures!!

    I just finished the nursery tour... holy smokes!! That makes the one I live by look like Goodwill LOL Thank you for telling me about it :)


  10. Whenever I get candy in a swap, it's gone nearly immediately. The kids swoop in... You'd think that perhaps I don't allow candy and so when they have the opportunity, they jump at it. However, that's not the case. We all just love candy that much! Blessings... Polly (p.s. the tennis balls help the chair slide easily & quietly)

  11. How nice you received all those pretties in the midst of your mess. I would have finished off those chocolate peanuts too.

  14. Morning, Connieness! What lovely Christmas gifts you've received! How nice of you to share with the painter, too! Oh, you've done so much to your home! I started blogging in June and you started to go to town on your home. You must be tired but I know how beautiful it is and how pleased you are with it! Now sit down and rest and let Mr. Love Bunny take care of you! lol

  16. I really like that pincushions are back in style. Everyone is making them and they are all just a little different with special touches. Great gift!
