And did you know that bulldozers are excellent gift-wrappers?

They're very helpful like that.

And that nice storm gave us plenty of time to warm up the house by baking and making.

The whip had the prettiest little sugar bits hanging on.

puff candy from this recipe. ( I think the stuff is positively yuck-o, but Paul's family loves it...)

And then of course a couple from that favourite book of mine. Jam shortbread again. And Tiger Cake. Mmmmmm. I think this one is my new go-to cake for carrying over to friend's houses for dinner.


And my google reader is overflowing with inspiration: ( If only I had more time!!)

This tiny spool gnome is too sweet.

These gingerbread housefronts would look so nice lined up on my bookshelf.

These pretty little birds would make the cutest gift tags.

And a cuff like this one would be enough to dress up my standby LBD for Christmas.

This gumdrop tree is on my to-do list for today.

This vintage mosaic is just so great.

Oh and everything at Torie Jayne. everything. Especially this birdhouse!


I may be back with one more before the holiday, but if not,

Merry Christmas, Everyone!
