We have some sweet friends that invited us over today for tea and I just love to package up a few goodies to share.
I love to share gifts, but it can be challenging on a budget sometimes.
I believe God has given each of us talents and that is what we need to share!
I am not gifted in many areas, but I do love to bake!
I also like to find things that "keep on giving."
Our friends have goats, so I thought that a galvanized tub would work perfect to package everything up.
It might come in handy on the farm.
Don't you love to think outside the box when it comes to wrapping?
I actually ran out of ribbon! Whoops! So, I used fabric strips to encircle the bucket and added holly as an accent.
I purchased the cellophane bags long ago and still have a good supply.
Lily was invited to tea in the play house with her doll by Millie, her darling friend.
We included paper dolls for her in our gift.
All of my gifts were handmade...
Spiced Plum Butter
Cinnamon Anise Jelly
Handmade Recipe Cards
Chocolate Snowmen made by the kids
Saltine Caramel Brittle
Lily was asked to bring a present for her dolly to share at tea.
We really were stumped, then thought a charming little doll's stocking would be wonderful.
She helped me put it together from fabric scraps and an old lace table runner.
Lily really wanted to show all of you...
I hope the dolly loves it!
Wishing you a peaceful and blessed Holiday!
