I have to share my "goodies" I received from Judy at Brocante etc. She had a give away on her blog and by nothing short of a miracle I won! See, I never win anything, ever, period. I am so lucky to have received this generous gift-thank you Judy from the bottom of my heart!

First is the sweet note she included in my package-is this the cutest card you have ever seen?

And behold, my wonderful gifts! A bounty fit for a queen for sure. Included are a cookbook I am anxiously looking forward to browsing at length for some new ideas for treats for Santa. Adorable holiday spatulas with designs. A fabulous tea towel with the twelve days of Christmas designs that will be PERFECT in my black/white kitchen as I have red accents. And last, but not least, TWO blooming teas!

Judy, your generous gift is a treasure I will have for years to come. Thank you so much! Now, I must find a clear teapot to enjoy a cup of tea and a long read of this book!

Where is the time going?

Seriously, where in the world has the time gone? The first week of December is gone and I have not even remotely finished my shopping, haven't even started to decorate, groceries to buy, cookies to bake, OMG!!!!!

Prince and I whacked down a sweet little baby tree on the dirt road coming home last weekend. It was supposed to be a joke for the Princess who is cutting her own tree this year and demands a monster. I am thinking I better just keep the darn thing, stick it in the living room, hang up a couple of dirty socks from the laundry pile and call her good. Maybe?
Well folks, OBVIOUSLY Martha the great doesn't live at my house now does she?
