Gifts

On Thursday Jeanetta and I had our little Christmas get-together and exchanged gifts. It was the first time we have had the chance to just be together, enjoy each others company sans kids and husbands AND work (well ok, I strung up 3 banners while I was there, but that was all!) and we had a great time just drinking coffee, chattin about nothing important
She is more of a maker and I am more of a thrifter, but what is great is that while our taste are not the same, we are extremely good at buying & making for one another. I guess that is one of the wonderful benefits of being friends for 14 years.
So here are the goodies she gave me - too see what I gave in exchange you'll have to pop in over at her blog!

A handmade skinny scarf and fabric brooch made from a vintage holiday image.


A vintage red-work table cloth (have I mentioned how much I adore red-work?)




A mini-capelet/collar that she crocheted for me...Already trying to decide what to wear it with first...
and a vintage tin that goes extremely well with one I have already, and a super soft vintage pillowcase with faded pink roses! How lovely...
I feel truly spoiled and loved all my treasures! Thanks friend!

  3. What wonderful, thoughtful gifts. You are very lucky. I see you're in North Little Rock. We've got a piece of land on top of a mountain in the Ouchita range outside of Hot Springs. It's our "someday" place where we'll retire in a few years. I love your blog. Keep up the good work.
