Saturday morning coffee at Mother's. I made this Orange Glazed Coffee Cake. Definitely a keeper.
Making again, adding cardamon next time!
We put Mother's tree up. She's all set. Ours will go up tonight.
One. Secured a few old polish recipes from a Gramma GiGi. (No not you Ginny!). One is for a polish bread called bouka and another for a nut roll. I hope to make these this holiday season.
Two. Baked one batch of Christmas cookies this week. It's a start.
Three. The artic blast is heading our way. Or should I say it's here. It's only in the 20’s and is going to remain that way for the next several days.
Four. My nephew from Oregon will be home for Christmas. We haven't seen him for three years! Hoping he will teach me how to make a great french press coffee!
Five. A little craftiness this week! Made with vintage buttons.
An one extra to make you smile. My little Missy at dance class. Notice her slippers in her hands and not on her feet where they belong.
Have a delightful weekend!
For me...that is! I know I have mentioned my friend Dawn to you all previously.
She enjoys finding the greatest items and sharing her enthusiasm with me! Lucky ole'me!
This is the latest treat I received.
It's lipgloss and the wand pulls out and illuminates. There is a mirror on the side of the tube of lipgloss so you can see in the dark or where ever you are to apply. The color I received is wineberry. Perfect color for me.
I am truly blessed to have a dear friend that thinks of often...sometimes too often. She gets such a thrill out of giving and I in turn am thrilled to be the recipient.
Thank you Dawn...your are awesome.
I was not compensate by Pure Cosmetics to write this post. The opinion is strictly my own.
One. It's Black Friday and I have not left the house. And no, I didn't go out Thanksgiving either. Well, I walked across the yard to my sister's for our family dinner.
Two. My nephew, Drew, drove up from his new home of Cincinnati. So happy he spent the holiday with us.
Three. I will be taking down my fall decorations today. I will hang my holiday wreath I made a few weeks ago. It's officially time for the Christmas season to begin.
Four. We had our first major snow dump. It looked more like Christmas than Thanksgiving yesterday.
Five. Our little munchkin, 28 months.
Our other little one, Cooper. He loves his neck warmer I knit for him.
Have a restful weekend!
