Tea Towel Swap

Thank you so much to everyone who left super tips on moving the photos around, I really,really appreciate it! Im hoping to figure this out today. Yeah! Today I recieved my tea Towel from my wonderful swap partner Kristin! She sent me tons more great stuff too , more pictures will be over at Flikr soon!
I just love this vintage kitchen towel with the flowers, fork & knife on it! I'm using it to line a basket of vintage cookbooks on my pantry. She even included this great old cookbook (below) that is an old southern cooking treasury, what a great color! I hope you have recieved your package, thanks again for being so generous!

I found this great vintage Christmas tablecloth the other day while out thrifting. It's just perfect for my red & white color scheme this Christmas. It's so fun to have a real change in my home this year. The last few years I have had such dark greens, and "rustic" colors & stuff because we lived in an old 1944 farmhouse, that just didn't suit and bright modern colors. So thats it . My new boring home will be bright & cheery this year ! I don't by much "new" things anyways because I like to recycle lod things, so its great fun decorating with "old" goods, making them new again. My Grama gave me these fenton ware milk glass candle holders for my birthday, Im in love with them! In the middle is my bowl of red & white ornaments I made for my tree using the scottie dog pattern from Allsorts.
The sun is beaming in the window, melting all the fresh snow. It's just fantastic, except when the sun shines so bright it shows you how much dust you actually have all over your house! Must go get some well needed dusting done!

Have I mentioned lately how jealous I am of all you folks getting snow? We just get rain, rain and more rain here lately!

oh you're in BC! I was trying to figure it out. Why'd you move out of the farm house?

I'll be sure you send you a photo of the garland. I'll have to find some scrap in the colours i want to use though.

It snowed here twice so far, but nothing stuck. And I'm glad - it's only November!

Love your tea towel and your table looks so beautiful. I got my Country Living on Monday and one of the Christmas spreads was red and white. I immediately thought of you. The scottie dogs in the bowl are too cute (i'm going to have to give in and make some)and those candle holders are amazing!

I love everything! The bowl of scotties is adorable.

However, the thing I'm coveting is the Annie tin. I know I saw that pink hot chocolate for sale once. And some Andy stuff in a tin too. I'm off to google and hunt it down ;-)
