Thank you Erica, for another very fun swap!
The minute I saw this darling gingerbread and gingham red swap invite, I knew I had to join!
I had the pleasure of swapping with Sweet Susie, from Little Susie Homemaker!
Boy, did she ever spoil me!
When hubs brought in this red polka-dotty box, I just knew there would be lots of fun inside!
Look at this flour sifter filled with treats! Susie painted it, I think. it is so cute! I love the wiggly eyed snowman! And, the recipe holder salt shaker is adorable! And of course the cookie cutter with the tiniest tree ever! Love it all!!!
Love the aqua blue color, and looks so cute in my kitchen! There is a sweet towel inside, candy and a cute cutter, too.
Perfectly fits in with my kitchen cuteness!
She also made this pretty white sparkly tree that sits on a Jello mold!
And some candy, and these cuties!
Thank you Susie, for an adorable swap! Everything looks so perfectly cute in my kitchen. It was fun getting to know you better, too! You are so Sweet!
I forgot to take pictures of what I made for Susie. Here are pics that she took and has on her blog.
I had a blast thrift hunting for kitcheny things to embellish.
Thank you again, Erica, for this fun swap!
And, to my new better friend, Susie!
Thank you, and Merry Christmas!

And, I had a wonderful time using some of my vintage kitchen items to make festive decorations.
My Grama's red spatula (hard as a rock) is the base of the tree. Sandy gave me the silver shiny reflector! Perfect to cover up the styrofoam ball.
I found this potato masher at the thrift store. I painted the handle red of course! The little deer and basket were there, too.
This red topped syrup dispenser makes a cute snow globe!
And, as usual, I forgot to take pictures of the cute kitchen inspired things I made for Susie (Homemaker), for the swap. I hope she takes some pictures, because I love the measuring spoon snowman I made her!
Have a wonderful week preparing for Christmastime!
Thank you for visiting me!

My husband does not like Halloween. I know. I can hear some of you groaning. But, since he is so nice to me all year about all my decorating and DIY projects, I don't complain. I just do Fall, and then we are both happy.
This year I joined Sandy and Deb's Halloween Swap and I actually explored my Spooky Side! My partner was Linda from LBD Sews.
I had a great time making and finding spooky items for Linda, because I knew she loved Halloween!
I made this tag and found these vintage items.
I turned the cookie cutter right side up and made a 3D ornament.
The underside says, "boo"!
I wrapped everything up in this cute Halloween box!
And, off it went to Linda's house!
Too much fun!
Thank you Sandy and Deb, for hosting!

All tuckered out from a days gardening work!
The box was filled with cute and colorful little packages!
Such fun to open each one!
Look at this sweet little cookie-cutter! The scarecrow is a picture of MY scarecrow in my garden! Linda!!!! What a sweet idea, to use the scarecrow my dad and sister made! I love it so much!
Lots of sweetness! Crafty supplies, scarecrows, even a sweet yellow hanky!
I am not a candy eater, but wouldn't you know, I love, love, love these orange sugary gummy pumpkins. Even my husband said, "how did she know?"
Thank you so much Linda for my sweet box brimming with Fall Cheer. I hope you like the Halloween box I sent. I had fun letting my "spooky side" out!
And thank you to Sandy and Deb for hosting this fun cookie cutter swap!
I love my blogging friends!
