The Holiday Planning has Begun

My dear friend Trina is hosting her famous Cookie Swap again this year. This invite is soooo cute, I had to share it. Trina attached her invite to a red spatula and then shipped it in this matching Christmas cookie bubble wrap mailer. It was so much fun to get in the mail.
I love the boxing and recipe card to make them like a little gift to everyone. Now, I just need to choose a cookie recipe. I have a little time. I have to start looking soon and be able to try a few batches. I will of course take pics and take you along to the party so you can see all the yummy cookies. This is not only fun, but you get 9 dozen cookies to bring home and enjoy without all that extra baking.
I had to share this with you. Before I left for California, Hubby took me to the Perimeter Mall in Atlanta and we did a little shopping for my birthday. We went into Anthropologie and I found this amazing perfume bottle. It has the cutest pincushion on top. It came with the 5 decorative pins. The perfume is the softest floral scent. I am in love with it!!
Here is the box it came in. The company name is very clever. Rosa Alba is the scent. If you love to sew or have a friend who does, isn't this the best gift ever?
Here is my big gift from my Sweetie. I love coffee and have always wanted my own espresso/capuccino maker. It is very small, easy to use and to clean. Yum!
Well, that is all for now. I got back from my 2 weeks in Cali on Friday and I am off and running already. I have a couple of Vintage Smock orders I need to get working on, preparing for Viv's Christmas ornament swap as well as Thanksgiving. Hope you are all doing great!
