My little sister's birthday is on the 13th,and I made some pizzelles and mailed them to her because she loves them, and I love her! I saved a few to enjoy with a cup of tea. Happy Birthday, Amy!
My sister sent me this Gracie teacup for Christmas. Isn't it pretty? It's navy blue and light blue with gold trim . Can you see the toile design inside the cup? I love surprises like that!
My Lizzi Kate Winter cross stitch design is finished and looks cute with my Goebel sledders, given to me from my dad, back in the late 1970's.
For my pizzelles, I used this recipe that I shared before, but this time I took the advice of Lynn, from Happier Than A Pig In Mud, and added three tablespoons of cornstarch to the bottom of the 1 cup of flour, which makes the pizzelles light and crisp. I thought about decorating the pizzelles like snowflakes, like Mary, from Home Is Where The Boat Is, did here. However, I didn't think that the pizzelles would stack as well to pack.
This beautiful hawk has visited my backyard 8 times since my beloved hubby passed away, and three times since December 29th of this year. The very first time that the hawk visited was on the Christmas Eve after Rich passed away. The hawk will stay perched on a branch for so long, just hanging out and facing into the window. The tree is an East Palatka Holly tree and is an evergreen, with pretty red berries in the winter.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
Thank you for your visit! xo
