The big day is one week away. I love this cup, my friend Suzanne gave it to me for my birthday. the eyes are a little scary though...
Every year Christmas creeps up on me and I am always scrambling at the last minute. This year things are under control and I am enjoying it a lot more. I can still keep to my every day things without feeling the pressure of doing everything that needs to be done for Christmas. Procrastination....a bad thing. I must keep that in mind for next year.
I recieved this adorable little present in the mail from my blogging friend Barb of Fun with Barb . She has an amazing blog so be sure to check it out. Don't you love the little elves?
This stunning pillow was made for my birthday by my friend Cynthia. I have written about her in my blog and if you could see the quilts she makes..........Cynthia you need to start a blog so we can follow along with your projects!
In the past 4 years we got 3 new neighbors which may not sound that unreal except there are only 5 houses on our street. The one couple are on the young side (30's) and really good neighbors. Every Christmas they come up with a unique gift for everyone. This year they roasted coffee, brought it over and ground it up for us (we do not have a grinder)! The next morning we used their coffee and it was delicious!
The other neighbors sent over home made sticky buns right out of the oven, very very good.
I on the other hand will have to get a little bit more adventurous for next year......the pumpkin bread looked pretty pedestrian next to all those goodies!
