DAY 19 and Day 20....
I'm going to cheat folks, forgive me!
I have to work this weekend and I'm going to be honest, I have run myself into the ground, even though I intended not to.
So I'm combining days to give me a night off from writing.
I promise it will be worth it!
Country Cottage Needleworks
Ornament from the Classic Collection
I loved this ornament from the very first time I saw it. And it was the inspiration for my
"Christmas Cheer" banister with all the little Elves that I found at Hobby Lobby this fall.
Here's a couple of angles...
I also would like to share with you my Lizzie* Kate finishes that I framed.
They turned out sweetly and I asked my husband if I could
PUHLEASE... hang them and he said, as long as you have others to hang there so we don't have holes in the wall. I told him I did...but I'm not sure if I do...
OH well, I'll find something ;)
Or stitch it up fast at the first of the year!
we hosted a Christmas party with two couples that are our very dearest friends.
Chicken Gnocchi Soup, bought Olive Garden (unbaked) bread sticks (and baked them at home) and added a salad of my own making with Olive Garden dressing.
For Dessert we had my Angel Food Cake Dessert
Here is my recipe for the soup.
I've made this A LOT for my family and I finally have it down to a science with how much to make. This feeds us one meal and then enough leftovers for all of us to enjoy for lunch the next day.
I HIGHLY recommend a meal like this over the holidays. Its quick and easy and warm and yummy and comforting and just DELICIOUS!
Have a fabulous day 19 and 20!
Love to you all!
Until DAY 21....
I'll be keeping my hands to work..
my heart to God..
while treating my neighbor with kindness and respect,
and trying to be the best me I can be.
It's hard, isn't it?
I may stumble and I may fall, but I pick myself up and I remember:
To thine own self be true...
I want to BE the change I want to SEE.
