Radio's, Swap exchange & More

Pillow's from the Bachman Idea House! JOY is my favorite word!
Christmas goodies found this year at estate sales, etc ...

I made the Russian Tea Cakes for hubby and the rest I bought. We had a very small gathering on Sunday a few treats were needed :)

Sharon, from My Vintage Studio and I did a Christmas Swap...I love how she wrapped them. Old patterns and seam binding...doilies on the boxes...

Look what she made, Just for Me...I Love Her!!! She is so sweet and how cleaver of Sharon.

Thank You, Sharon!

More goodies included a lovely, vintage perfume bottle, hankie, bracelet, Good Chocolate and the boxes are like little gifts themselves! One box had the perfume bottle, the other the bracelet and hankie! Sharon also sent her awesome can find them at the
THANK YOU SO MUCH...Sharon...I Love them All!!!

On Thursday we were taking my Jeep the garage to get new tires and spotted an "estate sale" we stopped in and they were selling some very old and awesome radios. We didn't want all 100+ of them...they made an offer...we left...we Came Back and bought them!! Really!!! What is Wrong with US!!! We hope to triple our "investment" ... the radio's have taken over the family room!!!

There are more that you don't see!!! Some are in the well room and some are on a table...

Intervention for this "addiction" will begin on Monday Morning... LOL!!! We aren't going to any sale until the 1st of the year! REALLY!!!

Now that the sale is over at HQ...I can finish my card, ATC's for December and get some packages in the mail AND shop for a few Christmas gifts for the "kids".... hurray ... finally feeling like I have things going in the right direction.

We had more snow this weekend too!!!

I hope all your Christmas plans are moving along and don't forget:

Oh my! Those radios looks pretty great!! If you do end up selling some, I would totally be interested. I have always wanted a vintage radio, but have never gotten around to purchasing one. And, thank you for your kind words about me and my grandma. It was much appreciated!! Hope you are enjoying the holidays!!
