The First Annual Cookie Swap






My dear friend Roxanne held her first annual cookie swap. A tradition we hope to continue for many years to come.

As some of you might already know, Roxanne is a very talented artist. It is always a treat to visit her home. Walking up to her house you are greeted by a message on a vintage sign. (No detail is spared) Please visit her web page on www.stokeschicantiques.com titled Roxanne the Artist










Following the path up to the door a welcoming porch beckons you to sit and stay for awhile.















































Once inside the sweet smell of cookies is the first thing your senses react to. Followed by the peaceful and serene feeling Roxanne's home provides. Please enjoy a tour of her home.






























































It is lots of fun to get together with friends and exchange cookies. The assignment was that everyone bring 3 dozen of your favorite cookies and you would go home with 3 dozen assorted. It turned out to be a wonderful idea. I just loved it. This season is about family and friends. The sweets and treats are just a bonus!

DAHLIA! How fun to see pics of my house and 1st Cookie Swap! How thoughtful of you! I had so much fun and look forward to having another next Christmas. Hope your family enjoyed the cookies. Mine are almost gone. I dropped a gingerman into a cellophane bag, tied it with a ribbon and hung it out the mail slot for the postman. I also filled red & white checked take-out boxes with an assortment and gave to Tina (at Diamonds in the Ruff) and our lawnman, Paul. I loved having them on hand to share. Oh! By the way, you hubby makes delicious cookies! Anyway, thanks for coming and for the photos and most of all for your friendship. You are a beautiful and generous woman, richly blessed. Merry Christmas, Dahlia!
