It’s been a busy day at the Old Cupboard Door. I have been working on finishing some items for my Etsy shop and new patterns for Aly's Room. And since Christmas is just around the corner I thought I'd better drag out the Christmas trees and decorations. All the stuff is out of the basement and attic but I haven’t gathered enough steam to put it all together. Hopefully, I will have the trees decorated in the next couple of days. I'll post photos when it's all done.



I don’t know if you experience this but I usually forget what is in the Christmas boxes that are packed away. Each year I make new things, buy new things, and receive new things in the way of decorations so by the time the new Christmas Season rolls around I have forgotten what I have. It’s a joy to open the boxes and take out each treasure and ooooh and awww over them as I remember making them or receiving them.



A box of 12 ornaments arrived today as well. They are from the crafters at Country Lane Peddler Message board. This is the 3rd year I have participated in the 12 Days of Christmas Ornament Exchange. We receive the ornaments a few days before the 12th of December. Beginning on the 12th we open one ornament each day until the 24th. My tree is loaded with the treasured ornaments I have received in the past 2 years. I’ll show a photo once I have my tree decorated.

Natalie, I exchange ornaments at Country Lane Peddler. Click on the icon to the left and it will take you there. You will only be able to see a few of the forum categories, some are restricted unless you are a member. PrimMart also does an ornament exchange. Their icon is to the left also. Primmart is a great place for those who love all things primitive.

Oh Willa...
Hi sweetie, this 12 days of Christmas ornament exchange sounds like so much fun. I would love to enter something like that. I entered a cookie cutter exchange. I sent mine over a week ago, but never did hear back from my person. I guess they don't have a blog, as I wasn't given any information, not even their email. Oh well, live and learn. I started blogging in June and I guess I have to learn to have better judgement about things.

Have a beautiful evening sweetie. Stop by soon. Country hugs and love...Sherry
