COOKIES!

It is time to bake cookies! And make candy! And bake sweet breads and sweet treats!

My favorite time of year - Winter Holidays - is here! Sunday the 27th was the first Sunday of Advent and in Holland the celebration of the Feast of St. Nicholas is already begun! It is high time to warm up the oven and bake up some yummy goodness!

Meet Three Brand New Untraditional Dala Horses!

Second week of the Dala Craftalong and here are a few little guys I have made using my very simple (and free) pattern for a Dala ornament!

Most of you who know me, know that I am big time into celebrating traditions, but often in untraditional ways! The three Dalas I am sharing are definitely not traditional! But I am hoping you will enjoy them and their stories.

Celebrating Midsummer - Margit's Story

Open! Open! Open!

Please! Please! Please!

All the demanding and pleading I have done these past few days have been to no avail. This little pea flower refuses to open in time for Midsummer. It is probably waiting for something called sunshine!

I have a whole garden bursting with blossoms - why do I care so much about my sweet peas?

Thank you! The Beginning!

I couldn't resist using one of my favorite wedding photos from this past year to begin February.

At the moment this was taken, the handsome groom was thanking his beautiful bride for being a part of his life.

Appropriate why? Because I am devoting this entire month of February to saying thank you to as many people as possible who reside in my corner of the blogiverse and who have enriched my life by being a part of it.
