Kitchen Fun Christmas Swap!

What a fun idea, a 'Kitchen Themed' swap!
Erica at Golden Egg Vintage was our hostess!
I was lucky to be paired with my long time blog friend Deb at Garage Sale Gal
The box was full of goodies when I opened it up!
All these extra little goodies! 
Coffee, candy(the best stuff not even shown as I have already been eating it) and some crafting items.
Made with Love was her theme!
This ornament is so adorable!  In a cute cookie cutter it is hanging on my Kitchen Tree!
And this adorable little Bakery with all sorts of Gingerbread men!  I love it so much!
Here they are together!  I have a pass through from my kitchen and I have my little kitchen Christmas tree there and added Deb's adorable creations!
Here is the complete tree!
Deb also sent a couple of sweet treats for my Grandson Tiger (he loved them) and two adorable finger puppets.  I forgot to get photos but I will.  One is a pony he has named Spotty and we have been having the best play time with him.
That's just how sweet and thoughtful Deb is.  I am so lucky to call her friend.
You can check out her blog post to see what I made and sent to her 
I had a lot of fun making these and it was fun to see we both went with Gingerbread themes!
Thanks Deb!
Looking into the kitchen from the living room
I have been so blessed with friends made here in Blogland.  Christmas is such a busy time for all of us, so it's nice to take the time to do exchanges and connect with others.

Wishing You JOY

I should have a tree in my kitchen! It was great fun to swap with you and we did have the same idea!
