This is an interest thread... I’m hoping many will sign up…Gardener’s Love Surprises! If enough of us are interested it will then become the Sign up thread too. And I will just keep it open :-)
Thanksgiving & Christmas are my favorite Holidays of the Year and so close together. Thanksgiving dinner is the time to pull out your recipes that you only make once a year! Ha ha. Shortly after that we're pulling putting up the Christmas Tree. Collecting Christmas ornaments has been a love of mine for a long time. Every year when we decorate the tree… I remember all the people who gifted me with unique ornaments.
Fall & Winter will come and many of our gardens will be covered in Snow by December 25th. Let's spread the Love of Thanksgiving & Christmas Joy, and Spring Flowers to come.
** Each person will send to their swap buddy 3 Items (gifts):
1. A Pot Holder or Oven Mitten (new) and Something Edible. It can be anything you would like to send that’s not easily perishable (chocolate, cheese, fudge…etc).
2. A Christmas Ornament -- It cannot be valued for more than $20.00. Please do not send a dollar store ornament. It can be handmade if you're creative in this area.
3. Five (5) packs of seeds -- Which you have personally harvested from your own garden 2012 (or can be purchased 2012 if you haven’t harvest any seeds). You can put them in a tiny box with a ribbon, dress them up fancy, or whatever you like to do. But the seeds should be labeled with the botanical name.
Since Christmas & Thanksgiving is a very busy time of the year for most...shopping, cooking, family, friends, and such. Not to mention the mail is Slow in December and 2 weeks before Christmas. You will mail your package no later than November 17th.
I will close this thread to New participants on November 7th. You will receive your buddy on November 8th.
Feel free to post if you like Angels, Sleds, Snowflakes, Glass ornaments, or what type of seeds you like. I Love Angels, Frosty the Snowman & Showy annuals :-)
