Farm fresh eggs and my grandmother's wooden spoon. Look! This material has "barn" cats on it.
My grandmother's mixer (which I sometimes use even though cord needs repairing), a sweet potholder my sister made me and a vintage cookbook that she also gave me. The darling apron is one that I picked up at the antique store for around $2.
D#2 finished school this past week and I wanted to share what she and I gave the "specials". These are teachers that teach computer, library, music, p.e., etc. We gave the two men mugs with coffee and a muffin.
I embroidered tea towels with the teacher's last name initial. Along with the coffee cake muffin, we included two types of tea, tea cup and saucer and a tiny bottle of local honey. I only had 6 tiny honeys so I metal stamped two silver plated tea spoons with the word "TEA".
I used the towels as the wrapping paper and tied them with tulle. My two most favorite towels:
the top row middle one and
the bottom row to the far right. This one also had teal ric rac on it. Cute! These were Martha Stewart towels.
Here's the tag that we used. It is an old library card. Remember those days when you use to have to sign your name to the card and they would either write or stamp the date due? I used my vintage typewriter to type the greetings on the card. Fun stuff!
Hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend,
