Christmas Ornaments accomplished!


My Christmas Exchange Ornaments are SO simple (hopefully not too much so).  But I like them because they have a sweet surpise inside.  I made a sachet by using the lavender that we picked this summer and some rosemary from our garden.  A simple squeeze and you'll think of me and where I live (near the lavender capital of the US).

(laying on the first snow of the year!)

I love to up-cycle as you know, so I grabbed some of my handy-dandy recipe pages in old cookbooks and
sewed them up as the wrapping paper/gift bag
(The same cookbooks I used at my pie party).

 Some of my favorite recipe pages are, of course, "sugar cookies, angel food cake, and nut-cracker sweet torte"





Off in the mail they go!

I finished my ornaments on Monday and sent them out on Tuesday. No line at the P.O.! I hope the girls enjoy the bit of beach that makes the ornament.
