We have a winner!

Actually, two winners! Rosemary at Free Advice Worth Every Penny has won the Cool Yule Vintage Christmas Box and Cora at Clearly Vintage has won the Peppermint Twist bath salts. Ladies, send me an email with your snail mail address info and you'll be getting an early Christmas gift!

I promised the recipe for the Peppermint Twist bath salts and I'll be posting those tomorrow along with a few ideas on packaging and sources for supplies. I tried to take some suitable photos this afternoon, but with our dark, rainy day, it was truly, truly bad. Bad, creepy photos with no Christmas cheer whatsoever, bah hum bug!

But never fear, Christmas fun is abounding everywhere this year!
Melissa at Creating from the Heart,. is giving away a gorgeous Christmas Wish Box. While you're there, be sure to check out her birthday box too!

Priscila at Casa Bella Chic has a Christmas Challenge with some adorable vintage images. If you're up for a little creative therapy, head on over.

Do you drool over pretty Christmas homes all aglow with vintage loveliness? Pretty Petals is having a Pretty Little Christmas Blog Party on the 15th!
Scrap In Style is having a 12 Days of Christmas Workshop hosted by Jeanette Herdman with projects, recipes, ideas and loads more.

Holly Doodle Designs has a couple of dear projects to work on with your children, but they are just as sweet for us big kids!

And can you believe the swap that Glitz Design is giving away? I haven't had a stocking like that since, well, never!

Remember this?
Well, this Fall it held a couple of Baby Boo pumpkins and finds yet another life for Christmas...
I wired it to an evergreen wreath after filling it with a few vintage Shiny Brite ornaments, vintage tinsel that was stuck in the old ornament box and a frilly, frothy blue bird that I found at the craft store. After the holidays, I'll take it off the wreath and save it for next year and hope against hope, that a wee little mother robin decides to make her home in our rose bushes again next year!

Congrats ladies!

I'm looking forward to the bath salts instructions. I found a great website last year to order all those types of goodies, cheap, when I was making homemade soap. Which reminds me, I still have some left to make... hmmm...
