Homemade Gifts Make Us Smile!



Sloan loves handmade items....I have been very blessed over the years to receive handmade items from fellow bloggers and eBay group friends. My dear friend Doris sent Sloan and I the most wonderful goodie box. We are having our 3rd Anniversary on the AAPG group on eBay and Doris gifted us with all these delightful fall items.





She made Sloan a pumpkin and a crow. He swiped the lil' wrist pinkeep and has been wearing it on his arm and his ankle. For now we won't put any pins in it! He loves the crow and pumpkin and said he plans to use them in his traps. The lil' toot loves to make snares and traps around the house and loves to put "clues" leading up to them. Doris I just want you to know Sloan loves the goodies you sent....thanks so much.



Now just look at the bounty of goodies that I was gifted. Handmade pumpkins, needle punched scarecrow, beautiful needle punched sunflower tuck pillow, a needle punch cat standing on a pumpkin, vintage package of needles, handmade card, gift tags, a purse calendar for next year (love the Rooster) lovely wool, and notecards. Wow am I ever blessed!

Thought you might want to see some close~ups of Doris' beautiful work!






I'm going to leave it all out....I know we are still having triple digits and summer is by far not over. But these fall handmades will bring a smile each time I look at them. I will think of my dear friend Doris and also remember that fall days will be here again.....Thank you so VERY MUCH Doris for every lil' stitch you put into each of these gifts!

Happy Trails.....Ginger

What a great bunch of gifts she sent. Handmade items take lots more time to make but that makes them all the more special.
Enjoy and keep wishing for the fall weather to get here soon!

Very, very nice and she does such beautiful work. I do hope it cools down soon, I think I have been saying that all summer though.

Doris really outdid herself, what beautiful gifts. She does such beautiful work and doesn't give herself enough credit.
