My Second Bloggy Award

Yeah,  it’s another one!  Lindsay @ The Cross-Stitch House gave me ANOTHER award!  She really is my BFF!  Thanks again Lindsay!

The rules of this award are to pass it along to five other bloggers. Four of the recipients should be dedicated followers of your blog and one should be a “newbie” if at all possible. So here goes!


I am awarding it to:
4.  AwtemNymf  @ The Faerie Wysperer
I tried to give the award to bloggy friends that haven’t received this one before.  Enjoy!
I also wanted to update you on a few swaps I’m working on and joined up with…
I’m now only behind on two swaps (well, three partners).   My entire family was sick with one thing after another for the entire month of September.  We are better now but that also means I’m playing catch-up on all my swaps and housecleaning, etc… plus trying to keep on top of it all.
First is the Fairy Tale Swap with Lindsey @ ethel and edna as my partner. 
Next is the Doll Clothes Swap where I have 2 partners to send to:  Jenna @  CorgiPants , and Susannah @ Sitting Pretty Studio .  
 I’m so sorry to be  behind, and so grateful that you are being patient with me!!!  My partners have sent me some great stuff that I’ll post when I send the ones I’m making.
Here’s two more Swaps I’ve joined.  (I know… I’m insane, but having SO much fun!)

Swap needs to be mailed to your partner on or before November 25th. 

Swap partner is Karen @

You will have one partner to spoil. Minimum of  $25 before shipping. 1 Handmade item and at least one true vintage item. You can make or purchase your items. Just make sure they are Christmas, vintage, pink or a combination of all three.


Winter Apron Swap

  • You will make a cookie/winter/holiday themed apron, full or half, be creative. It can be holiday related if you like. Please refer to your partner’s preferences.
  • You will include at least one favorite cookie recipe. The is a great way to share a family tradition. I can’t pick just one so my partner might just get a few cookie recipes.
  • You must include a cookie cutter.
  • You are free to include any other little treats you would like that relate to the theme such as favored sugars, sprinkles, specialty chocolate chips, etc.
  • Please include a had written note about your apron selection, cookie traditions, what ever. Just make it personal so your partner has a chance to get to know you. It will be fabulous!
