Wintery Mix















2012 has arrived at the Brown Gingham Cabin with a dusting of wintry white. Well, not as much as this pic shows, but enough.  With the new year there are some new things..................................


For a different look I went to Scappin' Blogs and got a new overlay. Not winter white, but fresh. Stop by http://scrappinblogs.blogspot.com for a great selection.






I have my Playlist tuned to a wintry mix of instrumental and vintage tunes.......................
                                                    







I have found a very pretty vintage pattern for a  crisp white crocheted coverlet. You can find the instructions for free at my website HERE in a few days. Wouldn't it make a great pair of curtains too!


 There are some new winter cottages on my blog HERE

Also, I will once again be hosting blog parties for Etsy Cottage Style at their Blogspot. Thanks Debbi, I so enjoy meeting everyone. Not only will there be Market Monday, which happens every first Monday of the month........take the sleigh right thru HERE  to join the vendors or to browse the Virtual Flea Market for everything from supplies to OOAK creations......But I will adding a couple of new ones and expanding on one that was seasonal. Here's the schedule...................................................................
2nd Monday of the Month



 This'll be a fun party with posts about vintage cookbooks, vintage food and culinary ads,
     personal recipes, kitchen kitch, showcase kitchens, vintage appliances, anything relating to
the vintage kitchen.
What's Cookin' in the Cottage Kitchen is up and running. I hope you can join in the Blog Hop at www.etsycottagestyle.blogspot.com  it's open to everyone.  It is a week long Blog Hop so Bloggers come throughout the week. Can't waut to see you there!

3rd Monday of the Month

This party is for all the Gardeners and just plain Flower Lovers and it's the one we are expanding. These posts should showcase seasonal gardens...alright you lucky folks in warm climates, yours gardens are all season...... but also hand-made items, decor, collections, etc, all with floral motif 


 4th Monday of the Month

I love this party. It should include posts to showcase items you work on (sorry no selling sites allowed), your craft space, organization tips, tutorials, supply tips, anything that'll be inspiration, creative, and fun.

The ECS  Blogspot is open to everyone, you do not have to be a member to Etsy Cottage Style to link into the party, but if you'd like more info you can ask me or go to www.etsycottagestyle.ning.com  to see it all.

I have also added a new link on my sidebar...................................................
When you press the radio icon on the sidebar it links you to an episode of an old radio show. Adventures of Maisie.....Blondie.........Suspenese.......just oodles of shows I find at RadioLovers.com. and Playlist.  Both are wonderful audio libraries of vintage delights to share with my blog pals. Oh you don't have to shut off my Playlist of music, it automatically goes away to hear the show.

I will also have some new creations for 2012 that'll be available on my website brownginghamcreations.com
as I can.  Like this...................................................................................

and this.........

a little of those.....and......


more of these.
Oh, and this too...........................

Well that's it for now. I'm so glad you stopped by today and hope you can look around a little at the new additions to my blog. I hope you enjoy them and come back often, I love when you come and sit a spell. And, don't forget to go to my Weekly Blog Parties page to join in all the fun.

HESTER’S LETTER

Hester’s letter, scarlet “A,”
Gave the gossips much to say,
But their rudeness she forbore,
For she knew she was no whore.
