christmas snippets


Today was freezing, happily. Too often around here in December it's in the 60's which I realize I shouldn't complain about but I do anyway. We ate this yummy soup for lunch, thank you very much Stephanie. You were right, my extremely finicky children loved it. Must be the bacon. What doesn't taste better with bacon?

And then I noticed that apparently Christmas has already come in our household, as the advent calendar is now stripped of its delicious jelly wreaths. Everyone blames everyone else.


My sweet mom sent me some cannibalized pages from her 2008 calendar and I've been wrapping books with them. Isn't that a pretty present, piano teacher?

I'm going to sign off until the New Year. I've got to go fix that "e" on my peace sign and spread some Christmas Cheer around here... have a great holiday!! (And, there's a small shop update in my little corner).

I love your calendar. And I love the dancing girls - a portable Christmas present (for those of us traveling!). Have a wonderful week. Give the kids hugs and kisses from us and be looking for something from us in the mail.

BTW James loves the star wars book. Thanks!!

Merry Christmas, Lynne! I wish you could come to my house and spread some Christmas cheer (not that we arent very cheerful; we just could add a big heaping of class and style to our cheer)!

Can you email me or post or somehow communicate how you made your calendar!

What a wonderful idea. And I was a piano teacher for a few years. I don't know a piano teacher who wouldn't absolutely love that.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Hmmm, the advent calendar caper is something that could happen at my house. Love your blog.

I think that's a great way to reuse calendar pages(or any great reusable peice of papaer, especially with a nice picture on it) i've done this before with random old maps too. have a great new year!

When you carry one of these louis vuitton handbags , it seems like you walk taller, feel prouder, strut a little bit more. No wonder all of the hottest babes in Hollywood are carrying these louis vuitton handbags cheap , they make you feel like you're the most important woman in the world.It's almost like the folks at louis vuitton monogram suede knew they were giving birth to an icon, a fashion legend that would never die.
