Busy days and a giveaway winner. 31 days of Christmas Wonder (days 22,23,24)


Life got a little busy and crazy (and fun) this week. For just a moment it actually felt like December. So . . . I did not even make it to my computer to post on Saturday and Sunday. (I even had my post written already.) Today is a big catch up day. (Please come back tomorrow for the promised beverage recipes.)

Today, I thought we could use a little visual inspiration, since I was not able to post this weekend. Off to pinterest I went and did a search for Christmas. I chose just a few I liked. Enjoy.









Hop on to my pinterest for more.

And now . . . a giveaway winner!



The winner is Bonnie of FROM A WRITER'S KITCHEN, who happens to live in Chicago's suburbs. I love Bonnie's food/lifestyle blog. Great recipes and she is also a wordsmith. Perfect combo. Bonnie leaves the most thoughtful comments on my blog.

We recently discovered we both liked Nicolas Mosse pottery from Ireland. This led us to . . . we should have coffee together someday. I will deliver this darling American Girl outfit in person. Bonnie has an American Girl doll, but she was not sure if she was a Cubs fan or not. :-)

Thank you, blogging friends for your prayers for my family and friends having surgery. Everyone is recovering well. We still await some test results, so please continue to pray. You guys are the best.

  4. Seriously avoiding Pinterest. I'm afraid I'd never get off the computer. Thanks for sharing these, though, so I can enjoy your Christmas pics vicariously. Love the candle arrangement!
