I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas! This is a picture of the miniature tree on my kitchen table. I added two new ornaments this year - A teeny, tiny vintage indent and a sweet little tart tiny.
Laurie at Indulge Your Shelf surprised me with the tart tin. The packaging was delightful!
I treated myself to this beautiful ornament made by Betsy at My Salvaged Treasures. She knows how I love buttons so she included a wonderful metal buttons that has been added to my accumulation of keepers. This ornament is made from a flatware knife handle and a flattened ornament top. This woman has the most amazing ideas. I think I have a permanent bruise on my forehead from smacking myself and saying why didn't I think of that!
I BAKED the rolls for our Christmas Eve dinner at our son's house. When I was in my earth-mother phase I baked all of our bread so did it twice a week and didn't even need the recipe. I really wondered if I could pull it off 20 years later.
So far, so good. That is my mother's flower bin. I painted it for her "back in the day".
WaLa! Fresh rolls for Christmas Eve dinner. Now those margarita balls were a whole other story. The whole kitchen smelled like tequila and burnt marshmallows....
Tomorrow the fun is done and it is back to the real world. Don't forget, there is still time to enter the final December give-away. Just leave a comment on this post.
