Christmas Tag Swap

IMG_3518 This year the several of the women in my family had a Christmas Tag Swap. The theme was ‘The Music of Christmas'”

I was nervous about a swap when everyone is so busy, but at the same time I loved the idea of the Christmas theme, so we dove in. We did have to be forgiving and let the deadline slip a little bit, but that’s the nice thing about swapping with family.

All of my tags were variations on one of these two vintage pictures. The back reads “Merry Christmas Darling”. I was going to go in a different direction but with my husband gone, all I could think about was Christmas couples and being together again. (As I mentioned in a previous post he was at an Army Reserve training and because my blog is public I don’t like to mention when he is gone until he is home again.)

In the swap were several sisters, my daughters, a sister-in-law, nieces and my mom. Almost as fun as getting the tags was decorating with them.

  1. I think those are so fun. I love how you used them for ornaments.

  2. Yes! I'm next to good ol' George Washington!

  3. What a delightful blog and post -- the tags are amazing -- don't you love doing tags? They're my favorite, I think! Great swap!

    I come from Ragamuffin's blog -- I noticed your quote about Mr. Rogers. I have to tell you, he is (was) as genuine as his character. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a PBS meeting once -- the line to meet him was so long, I'm sure everyone missed the next session. He took so much time with each person -- asking about what they liked to do for fun, their family, their life. Every single one. Mr. McFeely often attends and has come to our station and is the same -- doesn't matter how long the line -- every kid will be met. And you just have to love that.

    I look forward to another visit to your blog and hope one day you'll stop by The Marmelade Gypsy (my primary blog). jeanie
