First Annual Re-gifting Party!

My girls only re-gifting party was so much fun that we decided we have to do it again next year. The premise of the re-gift was that you had to bring something you already owned; no buying allowed. Low stress, no cost, and lots of fun. We had a great time talking, eating, opening gifts, trading them, eating, talking, and eating some more. Plus we collected two grocery bags full of canned goods to donate to the local food bank. What great friends I have.

This photo shows just a portion of the goodies we had.

Here's a group in my jam packed living room/library.
And some more lovely ladies in the sunroom. You can see how cozy we all were!

The exciting news of today though is our "big" snow!! Totally unexpected and although it doesn't look like much to most of you, it's a lot for our area, believe me.

I love, love, love the way the air feels and smells when it snows, so clean and crisp. Brings out all my nesting instincts!

Speaking of nesting, I need to stock up on some felt for when the girls come home. We're doing craft camp and these look like great ideas!!


  1. Your party looks like so much fun. What a great idea. I was really looking forward to my book group on Sunday, but it was derailed by a blizzard! And rescheduling in December is tough.

  2. Re-gifting party...great idea! Looks like a happy group.
