The official beginning of the Christmas Holiday is here!
I wish I could say I was a lot more organized and ready than I am, but that's OK. I'll get there. I promised this year my mantra would be "no pressure". Can you say that with me?
Now repeat that to yourself every day between now and Christmas.
No one is perfect. No house is decorated magazine-ready, while 500 dozen cookies are baking in the oven, and presents are beautifully and perfectly wrapped while you're kneading dough for homemade bread as you sing Christmas carols and make dozens and dozens of Christmas crafts and sew gifts for the 200 people on your present list... all while you prepare for company for an open house buffet for your neighbors AND make new holiday outfits for your beautiful, perfectly mannered 1 dozen children. If you do a few of those things - in moderation - while spending happy times with the people you love the most, well that's a pretty perfect holiday to me!
This Holiday Season has started on a lovely, happy note for me...
One sweet little brown egg - our first one EVER - from my head hen, Rita.
I'm so proud of her.
So I will be back this week with lots of "happies" for the holidays.
New wares for the shop.
A coupon code.
My first Vintage Recipe Thursday...
... and a new Holiday Craft Tutorial.
Here's hoping your holidays are starting on a lovely note.
