It’s that time of year!!

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and are ready to kick off the Hanukkah and Christmas seasons.

Being in the Pacific Northwest, I really enjoy the turn of the seasons from Fall to Winter. The leaves in my yard have all fallen off and made their way into yard waste bins. And our Koi fish have officially been weaned off their feeding schedule until next Spring. Time to head inside and cozy up!

DECORATING!

Yes, my favorite thing to do at Christmas is to put up our tree. Last year we purchased a fabricated 7 foot tree from our local nursery. It looks so great all done up with twinkle lights and nearly 100 ornaments (am sure some of you can relate!)  The cats have seemed to not be that interested in it. It does put off a romantic glow in the front room. I love it!

Next week I’ll start tackling wrapping of small gifts for our girls. They will make their way in the stockings on Christmas eve. Thankfully I had made a couple purchases during various sales throughout the year and “hidden away” these goodies for Christmas gift giving. (I really should do more of this…)

For those of you looking for small stocking stuffers or gelt-giving ideas, feel free to visit my Etsy page. I’ve got a couple special Holiday only items for purchase under $10 and $15.

Enjoy your week! Stay peaceful!

Thanksgiving fun!! Oragami Turkeys!

Hi —

It’s time for Turkey, gravy, & lots of stuffing. Last weekend I caught a bit of the Food Network Channel’s Thanksgiving tips show. Instead of replicating one of their recipes, I thought I’d give the Origami Turkey idea a whirl.  Was posted on one of the blogs I subscribe to… Take a peek and let me know what you think!!

Oh, if you try it, take a picture so I can post on the blog 😉

Happy Thanksgiving all!
