Snow and Cookies


It has been snowing here for the past week and I wanted to show you the sparkling snow in my yard. When I took my dog outside the other night it was so beautiful that I had to take a picture.

I made Christmas cookies this year. I don't think I have ever really done Christmas baking, but I had the urge so I made gingerbread, shortbread and sugar cookies. My favorite were the shortbread. They were dipped in chocolate and I soon had an addiction on my hands!


I gave some away as gifts and saved some in the freezer for my family when they visit.

 I put some silver jingle bells on my windowsill in a glass apothecary jar from a thriftstore. I tossed my Polar Express bell on top.
 Last month I painted a mug at Color Me Mine in Kelowna (before they had a fire that burned the place down) =(     I love drinking coffee and Baileys out of my Santa mug!

My First Blog Post- Christmas Decor

My first blog post! Yay! I wanted to share my Christmas decor. Here are some pics of my tree with older ornaments, from our tree when I was growing up, and some that I made this week.

I bought clear plastic ornaments to decorate. I glued some jute rope around one and put ribbon and feathers inside of the rest.
I added some cinnamon sticks around a candle to make it festive and brought out my 'Christmas' Bath and Body Works candle. (Cranberry Woods and Fresh Balsam)
I can't wait for the holidays!
