Erin had mentioned that she would like to try her hand at sewing, so on my recent trip to TN, there's is a great little pattern shop I like to visit and I picked up this gingerbread man bucket kit. Everything she will need to finish that project, plus a small clutch/card clutch pattern. I sent a tote bag. I used fabric to make it that I like to call "carpet bagger" fabric. Very retro/vintage. A tea towel, business card case, key fob and a Christmas bunting. Erin hung it up where she had her her Thanksgiving bunting hanging to shoot this picture...
And now, what she sent me... Ooooooh.... this is so cool!
Isn't that sign the best?!? And the established date, 1979...the year I was married and established my home....er.. Bakery! She put thought into this gift, y'all!
She continued the kitchen theme throughout...
Erin made these really cool recipe cards that has "Recipe" cut-out. An oven mitt, and she even included two of her own recipes! I can't wait to try that cobbler!!!
I got these decorated clothes pins, and she took a plastic cutting board and monogramed it with an "H". How cool!!!
See the cool cup and saucer? The first pic is the "before" :-) I just thought that was the sweetest thing. She went to my Pinterest page for ideas, and came up with this. Ultra-cool!!!
and here's a close up of the sign she made me. (Did I mention that I l-o-v-e this?!?!?)

I have to say, this is one of the absolutely best exchanges I've participated in. I even asked Erin if she'd put me on her Christmas list this year! I had such a wonderful exchange partner and as time progresses, and we "stalk" each other's blogs I think we will become great (cyber) friends! Thank you again, Erin!
