Tasha Tudor Group Fall Exchange

My Tasha Tudor Take Peace group does a few gift exchanges through out the year. We had been discussing mice and bunnies in September, so we decided to have a fall exchange and suggested that we include a little mouse or bunny. Many of us like to make things, so it's nice if you can send something handmade. I think we had 14 people participate this time and it was really fun.When LaVonne was out visiting me, we made little wool cut mice using her beautiful yarn from her sheep in Montana. We really had a ball making these. She was so patient with me-she's a great craft teacher. She works as an artist in residence back home with children, so I guess I she could handle me! I couldn't post pictures of the little darlings before as I didn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone!
Here's the photo of our mice.Mine is the cubby one on the right...of course!

I spent my package to Sandra in France. Here's a picture of my package just before it was sent so far away! We sure know how to have celebrate.

Yesterday, the mailman brought me a package from Terri who lives in New York. I saved it until this morning so Jim could see me open it while we were having our coffee.

This is what I found when I opened it up! What a fall greeting for me! I was so excited!!!!

I spread everything out on the floor so I could get a good picture of all the treats. She even included a box of Earl Grey tea which I love.

I love this little fall bunny. She might have to live in my tea room with all my dolls. I think she'd be happy there!

Terri made this wool pin with a cool button which looks vintage. What a fun project, and it will look really great on my coat.

Look at this happy little ceramic squirrel candle holder and tea light. Just makes you feel like fall.

I hung the scarecrow on my chair...he can welcome my guests when they come in.

So, a big heartfelt thank you to Terri. She's a new member on our group and I think she qualifies as a Tashette now.

If any of your would like to join our Take Peace group, you can find us at It's a happy place to be, we have lots of fun and I've made some wonderful friends. We will be doing an ornament exchange for St. Nickolas Day along with a virtual tea.

Oh fun! She had you pegged, didn't she?
I still love that picture of our two mice together! The country mouse and the city mouse!

What a marvelous idea! Only through the advances in technology could we do such things! Sounds like a charming group to join. But, I fear I could not keep up with my schedule - do you know how far behind I am in my written correspondence???

Something to consider, though - as I do love the legace of Tasha Tudor . . .
