    Christmas Gifts (USA) should be mailed NO LATER than DECEMBER 15. Out of country gifts should be mailed NO LATER than NOVEMBER 15.

    I believe we agreed on a price limit of $10.00. If you are making a homemade gift, your time may be added as cost.

    LADIES: Here is where we can talk about our favorite colors, different themes we have in our rooms, the things we collect, and etc.

    I will start by saying that my favorite colors are blue, blue, and blue. :D

    I collect ceramic mice and all kinds of coffee mugs.

    Theme for kitchen: Campbell's Soup Kids
    Colors for kitchen: red/white/black
    Theme for bathroom: Dolphins
    Colors for bathroom: blue/beige
    Theme for sunporch: 50-60's restaurant
    Colors for sunporch: red/white
    Colors for living room: beige/maroon
    Colors for family room: blue/maroon
    Colors for bedroom: yellow/purple (summer) blue/mint green (winter)

    I love homemade gifts (and boughten ones too) [​IMG]

    Ok you two. You're not helping here. :rolleyes:

    Lets see what I can remember from last year. Gwyneth likes glass teapots? I think she didn't have a clear one. Wasn't it teapots? What else did you like Gwyneth? I know homemade but what?

    Saggy well, it was like pulling teeth to get something out of her. But I found out she likes printers trays and miniatures to put in them to share with the little children she ministers to.
    Special ornaments for her tree. What kind girl? I know you don't want a pink flamengo [​IMG]

    I think of Diane as the pinky fluffy modern version "suthren" belle. [​IMG] Her kitchen is "asparagus" green. She liked some scented candles I think it was vanilla and... what? Spice? Collected nutcrackers. What else do you like Diane?

    Donna likes primitive styles and has some very cute decor. She loves cobalt or royal blue NO baby blue or pink colors, or peach scents! Pecan is good. She also likes sheep. Donna, do you decorate your tree primative also? And that remind me didn't you also collect vintage kitchen utensils?

    Sue (was such a good girl last year too) already told us some good ideas and I know her bath is dolphins. Don't you also collect Campbell Kids for the kitchen? Or is that only in the mugs?

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head right now. Going to go think somemore on this... Okay we all love to hear the details right? C'mon ladies.

    I collect thimbles, owls and bookmarks and I like frogs too.
    My favourite colours are blue and green. I am definitely not a pink or red person.
    I love things like pretty stationery, ie: notelets etc and Southern Gospel music. I read a lot, but not Christian fiction. Unfortunately I am allergic to most candles and that sort of thing.
    That's all I can think of for the moment. Hope it helps.
    Blessings

    Love primitive country, worn out look.
    Still love the blues.
    Still hate baby blue and pink, and peach anything.
    Love pecan scented candles.
    Still into sheep, going to do my bathroom country with farm animals(nothing cutsie though, I like them to look realiatic)).
    Still collect anything vintage kitchen, I get mine from yard sales and thrift shops and I don't spend much on them, so neither should anyone else.
    My tree has been for several years pink/mauve/white, but this year the plan is simple elegance(not buying anything expensive), muted colors, whites, gold,I love those clear ornaments, look like glass.


    Kitchen- blues/white, country look, old utensils, a few chickens

    Living room- country, but not over done, no frills, beige/blue

    bathroom- going to redo it in a farm country look with sheeps, chickens, blue/beige

    Bedroom, shabby chic (no country here), sage green, pink/mauve, with accents of pink/mauve roses, I hang pearls from the picture frames sometimes, I use old gloves, looking for the right old hat(again I am cheap, if I can't find it cheap, I don't buy it).


    Would be a good idea if ladies would let us know what kind of christmas decorating they like, might get some ideas there too.
    Going to be keeping an eye out for my secret pals favorite things. I like getting the names and likes of our pal so early, gives time to find just the right itmes for her.

    My favorite color is GREEN, GREEN AND ,UH GREEN.
    I collect ceramic roosters and anything with chickens; potholders, dish towels, etc. I also collect clear crystal glass animals. My kitchen and dining room are green and have a country theme: chickens, green and white checks and ivy.
    I love the country look in the whole house and don't really have a specific style. I call it Early Mess. It really does look like an antique store.

    I'm not picky at all. Anything homemade is fine.

    Uh.. I'm not picky. I'm a teenager, so I mean, that can give you a hint. Uhhhh... My Bedroom now is in forest green and burgundy, but that is soon to change, just not sure to what colors. I am a very girlie girl. I play the piano(my passion), so music and musical items are always good. Also, I love flowers. I love anything! I ain't picky!

    Hello secret partner,
    It was clear glass (anything).Colours not pink if possible, burgundy/cream colours ........ and I love my teapot collection....... must have about 30 of them all shapes, but mostly useable - not the type you can`t have a cuppa out of ;)I most of all like something someone has made for me, I make all the greetings cards that leave this house, and the calendars, because they have more personal verses, and always carry a text.
    Kind regards,
    Gwyneth.

    My preferences are not so defined by what's in my house as they are by what I do. So here goes:

    I function as Children's Ministry Director and teach K-6 every Sunday.
    I'm the choir director.
    I sing solo in church upon occaision.
    I play percussion in the Philadelphia Biblical University Symphonic Band.
    I started out as a music teacher, and like all kinds of music, except country and opera!
    My favorite cartoon character is Daffy Duck.
    My "day job" is as a mainframe programmer/analyst.
    My motto at work is "keep your ducks in a row", and so I have developed an unusual rubber duckie collection.
    When I have time (?) I like to stitch plastic canvas, and have many patterns.
    I also sell Avon and have plenty of all of that stuff.
    I normally like "unusual" or "off-beat" things.

    Secret Pal, I hope this helps.

    I love homemade gifts and scented items. I'm very easy to please. My kitchen is a light green with farm animal motif; cows, roosters, and a stuffed cow collection. LOL

    I love ornaments and snowmen! I also collect Santa's. I love to read and like 'old books'. I cannot wear jewelry that isn't gold unless it can fit over a sweater or turtle neck.

    I've VERY girly but wear jeans a lot. I love aprons and tea mugs but only like Lipton tea.

    If you're handy, I'd love some crocheted items such as a hat or even doilies!

    Like I said, I'm VERY easily pleased and am not a 'spend a lot to impress me' type person.

    Candles, potpourri, little lamps, homemade items, aprons, ...... I'll keep thinking!

    Diane
