Christmas Swap, Crafting & Decorating Stuff!

Tis the season for swapping, crafting & decorating!
Sharing some today.
First up, my ever changing tablecloth ladder.
Today it is sharing space with some vintage tea towels.

The 2 top angels are Tammis Keefe designs.
The angel towards the bottom is a Chuck Gruen design.
Do you love everything "angel" too?

I've made a few cloche ornaments for giving,
 and redid a couple others for my tree.


Joined in Vicky's ornament swap at Life on Willie Mae Lane
and received my fun package,
Love this pretty silver ornament from Michael's,
one of my favorite places!  She also sent me the sweet card.
and cute tags and goodies for crafting.
Thanks Denise for your thoughtfulness.
Thanks so much for hosting this fun swap Vicky!  I missed joining in
the first year, but am so glad to have joined in your 2nd Annual
Ornament Swap.  Give Vicky's fun blog a visit if you don't
already follow her!
My swapper to send to was Tuula of Thrifty Rebel Vintage.
 I worried about mailing all the way to Canada, but it arrived just fine.
Tuula was adding a new tree this year, a silver theme with green
 and pink accent colors.  I couldn't resist including a container of
silver, green & pink goodies for her to craft with. 
My favorite display!
I'm addicted to these vintage Christmas ceramics.  So adorable!
& lastly..........

 I have no idea how I accumulated so many MORE Christmas tins
this year...but obviously can't resist when I see them at thrifts and
yard sales.  Am I the only one who is guilty of  hoarding grabbing these?
Now...what to do with them?  :)
Have fun holiday decorating or whatever fun you
are planning this weekend!


  1. I think you and I could start a support group for ceramic Christmas treasures and Christmas tins. I'm equally addicted. I love your Christmas tablecloth ladder. So many gorgeous prints. Christmas hugs!

  2. You could make cookies and give a few to close friends and family! :) When my sis and I were in grade school our dad always made his signature fudge and we put them in tins and gave them to our teachers. LOVE your beautiful table cloth ladder, what a perfect way to display so many at once!! I always love the cute dome ornaments, looks like a fun swap that you got many goodies!! And your Christmas ceramics display is very cute, all those little faces are just adorable!! :) Happy Holidays and Christmas hugs, Have a great weekend! xo Holly

  3. Pam... I love the items that you sent me, and the ornaments look so great on my tree. Thank you so much! You received such a sweet package from Denise. I'm still in love with your tablecloth ladder, and your collection of Christmas ceramics and tins is fabulous.

  4. What cute ornaments to receive and of course you sent great items! Love all your collections!

  5. Loved your swap gifts, so adorable. I always love looking at your tablecloths, can't wait to put mine on the the table from you!! And your tins and ceramics are cute cute cute!!
    Have a Wonderful Christmas, and Wilma sends hugs and kisses to Doyle!

  6. You have the BEST collection of linens and your Christmas ones are awesome!! Fun swap goodies and I also have a "few" tins...

  7. Love the things Denise sent to you! I am so happy you joined in the fun this year. Your tablecloths just amaze me Pam...and your vintage pieces too! Such beautiful collections. Thanks again for joining in the exchange. Have a blessed weekend.

    Hugs, Vicky

  8. Everything looks lovely.
    I love your tablecloth ladder.
    Have a lovely week.

  9. I found two HUGE bags of Christmas tins in my shed that I completely forgot about. I just pick them up throughout the year at the thrifts and garage sales and set them aside. The good news is that I pulled some really good vintage ones out that I displayed and the rest are newer so now I don't have to go buy any for cookie's!

    I love all of your ceramics so much! They are super hard to resist, aren't they?

    Happy Holidays!

  13. Hello dear Pam!

    First of all, I LOVE your tablecloth display - it is simply beautiful. And secondly, what beautiful items from sweet Denise. The frame is quite pretty. Also, I love what you sent to Tuula - such fun and creative items.

    I am happy to be following your blog and look forward to visiting again. Hugs!

  14. I really love the ladder! What a fun display! I think all of the gloves are really pretty, roo! This sounds like a fun swap. Very fun idea. I really like ceramic figurines. Christmas ones are very cute! ♡♡♡ you have such a fun collection. I have saved tins, too! Great for giving away more cookies. But also for holding different craft supplies and projects. I have some large popcorn time that u use to Leo pretty did in for my food and cats , too!
    Blessings to you
    Merry Christmas

  15. Whoops, sorry for all the, typos! I use popcorn cans for pet food.

  16. What a nice gift! I love those tins too but they've been hard to find at thrift stores this year... for some reason...they're usually easy to find. This gift exchange has been a lot of fun. So nice to meet you!

  17. I wish I had been in a Christmas swap, looks like so much fun!

    Pea green with envy, adore your holiday towels Pam.

    Happy Holidays!

  18. Pam, Love the ornaments both sent and received! You are not the only one who collects tins. I have quite a few. Hopped over from Vicky's ornament exchange.

  19. Hi, I'm coming over from the exchange. It's so nice to meet you! Love all your displays...the vintage ceramic figurines make me smile. Such a beautiful ornament and lovely gifts too. Have a great week!

  20. Wonderful displays! I love all your linens. This was such a fun swap!

  21. Beautiful collection of Christmas tablecloths and such sweet ceramic figurines!! They are all so cute! Merry Christmas! xo Heather

  22. I love everything but the ladder and the tea towels are such a great idea!! The tins could make a really cute wall display if you could hang them somewhere, or cookies to neighbors if you could part with them : )

  23. I never get tired of seeing that ladder decked out with your fabulous linens! Up 'til now I've limited my ceramics to snow couples (and on your bottom shelf I spy two sets that I have in my own collection) but seeing your display makes me think it's time to expand my own! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful season, have a wonderful weekend! --Fran
