Scarf Exchange

A yearly tradition has established itself within my group of friends:  a scarf exchange!  We are on our third year of gathering (in lounge-wear) for food, fun, and scarf trading.

The first two years we played a dirty Santa game where treachery and scarf stealing was involved.  This year, one friend found a great dice game to play instead.  No treachery necessary ~ a total game of chance!

Two of us happened to buy the same scarf, and plaid seemed to be high on everyone's radar.......

This takes the place of buying each other Christmas gifts every year.  It's always so fun!  We even got a Norwex demo out of the deal (complete with butter smearing on a window).

Hosting meant I could show off the new old house.  It also gave me motivation to clean, cook a new recipe, and decorate for Christmas.

Now if I could just get a snow day.  Tis the season!


  1. How fun! But no snow yet please!

    Also, have you ever heard of a swip-swap night. A friend of mine organized one - a couple of weeks before you rand your friends rid your closet of clothes and accessories you no longer want - and then you can shop your friends' closets which are displayed at a mutual location. (We used our church's fellowship hall.) It was a fun way to spend a Friday night. The clothes that remain are donated to an organization.

    1. I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! You could even extend it to kitchen stuff or housewares! ANYTHING! Thanks for the idea!!!

  2. That's a really great idea! Then everyone leaves feeling like they gave and received a Christmas gift without all the shopping and spending! Except the stealing games give me a panic attack. :)

    1. We found ourselves spending SO MUCH just for our circle of friends! It's budget friendly, for sure!
