Seeing Red

I think one of the things I enjoy most about the Christmas season are the colors, especially red! It is so cheerful and just adds a bit of spark to the dreary landscape.

Last night we attended a Christmas concert. My granddaughter, Fallon plays the clarinet. It was so adorable.

It is snowing again today, we got about 4 inches or so. It is so pretty and quiet outside.

I was up early to use every single second of the day. I baked some cookies......

 sugar cookies spruced up for the season.

This tray of cookies is going to a super nice lady who is 86ish. My husband and I call her "the nicest lady in the whole world". No, she is not one of our mothers......but we have never heard her say a bad thing about anyone and would do anything for anyone. Her name is Mary....kind of goes with Christmas?

The smells of Christmas are also wonderful. I found these at Wegman's, the hand soap is called Mistletoe and the dish soap is called Frosted Fir, they smell so fresh and Christmas like.

They sit right next to my poinsettias that I bought from the Boy Scouts. I am going to try and keep this going after Christmas.

As I was finishing up my baking the snowing was almost over. My husband who plows snow came upstairs and said he was leaving and did I want to see a little sewing he did? The normal jacket he wears is in the wash, so he improvised with one that is a little too small in the sleeves.....more like cutting than sewing.

Now for some more red and white.....what can I create?



  1. That Santa in the first photo is so funny and cute!! You really have such fun decorations! Those biscuits are so festive! The nicest lady in the whole world sounds so lovely. I like your husbands style, very practical.

  2. Love your Santa and the Snowman, and Fallon is adorable! Boy were you busy today! I am sure Mary will appreciate your cookies as much as you appreciate Mary! It is so nice to do special things for special people!

  3. Your cookie plate is sweet both in looks and sentiment~ I'm sure she'll love it.
    What a lovely shot of Fallen, and I love her name.
    Bob's "sewing" ha ha
    can't go wrong with red and white - this time of year, or ever

  4. I just love those polka dot boots in front of the candle!

  5. I DO ENJOY THE PICTURES OF THE SNOW! I don't really like snow because I moved from Long Island 40 years ago but the snow pics bring back so many childhood memories, so thank you!

  6. I love red this time of year too. In fact I always hate taking down the decorations because all that bright red gets put away.
    Fallon looks so grown up in that picture. So pretty. I like the 'sewing' project. LOL

  7. Thank you for the snow pic - it looks enchanting!!


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
