I am not crafty and have a very short attention span so I think my buddy will be getting a store bought item.

Kittrell, NC(Zone 7b)

OH...I'm Definately IN. Sign me up too.

And if there is an uneven number to sign up, I will gladly volunteer to send two boxes, as I want this to be fun for everyone.

Let me tell you, Helene sent me one of those tuna can pincushions, and it was unbelieveable that it had ever been a can! Really beautiful and I use it all the time!

So Helene, aren't you going to sign up too? I don't see your name on the list !

PS: I'm going to add on here for my Santa...that my favorite color is yellow, I enjoy both indoor and outdoor gardening, love anything that looks vintage, my hobbies are gardening, sewing, quilting. I can't think of anything to add that would be a dislike, I'm pretty easy to please.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Ahhwww my friends, some of you are mad at me, or so it seems. If you (7 of us ) want to go on we can figure out a way to give a gift to each other,,,,,Helene

Jasper, AR(Zone 7a)

I'm not mad ^_^ just mostly lurking the past several days. I will go with the flow--whatever everyone else decides!!!

(tish) near Atlanta, GA(Zone 7b)

Its a shame there is not more participation for a gift exchange. Who doesn't like gifts, ha. Whatever Helene has decided/decides is fine with me.

Kittrell, NC(Zone 7b)

Helen, I really don't think anyone's mad.....more like dissapointed.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Well if all want to give this a try - we are seven at this point. I'll wait to here a "yep" from the others and d-mail buddies this PM. Helene

Jasper, AR(Zone 7a)

It's been a very bad year for me as well, otherwise I would participate. I think you all should go forward as planned...get the tradition started...so I can join next year.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Hello, ladies, Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. We visited my SI and DB, Just 4 of us here in Fl. Fam is every where else.

i think I have some ideas pat down as to what I want to do/send to my buddy, hoping you all come up with some pretty and interesting for your partner. Helene

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

I am the first who received "The" Secret Santa Package from "hillbilly_gran" Sooner than you think.

Lovely wind chimes, brand new in package, lovely antique saucer for the special mini, something old. Thank you Tommie Gillam. So thoughtful.

When all agree I will post picture.

(Zone 1)

Oooh, I haven't mailed my secret buddy's package yet. I have the box ... hopefully by the end of this coming week I will have it all together and get it mailed, will definitely get it out before Dec. 15th!

Helene: I'd love to see a picture!

Jasper, AR(Zone 7a)

Helene, did the cup arrive intact? If not plmk-- I insured it and we will do the paperwork.

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

OHHHHH Cup? running down to look for cup.

Was just going to post that I am sending mine on Monday. and ...need to run to the garage/

Longboat Key, FL(Zone 9b)

Cup INTACT with drainholw for AV. How clever.

I have to explain, My Sewing/Playroom is in the garage. I also wondered why the insurance?
I did not open the windchimes, but now I did and what did I find but CUP.
Thank you so much. I think Fisherman's Paradise( which is coming nicely) will look good in cup with saucer, the blue flowers and variagtion. Pefect. Thank you so much. You all let me know when to post pictures. Helene.

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

It sounds like a gorgeous gift Helene ^_^. I'm looking forward to everyone's pictures.

This is part of my "SS" gift from Hillbilly_Gran - Beautiful Yes? She knew I love anything China..

Perfect hole in the bottom of cup. How come it didn't chip.

So glad you like it!! I have to admit it was a little scary, that cup is so fragile, but there was a whole thread on drilling holes on the C & S forum. As a result I ordered "diamond hole bits" in 3/8 and 5/8 sizes -- NOTHING is safe from me now;)
