Merry Me!



I've been looking forward to this day since Dec. 26th, 2010! Haven't you?

I hope you guys have been as good as me this year.
Ok, so I—lightly—pushed a 'holiday shopper' out of my way the other day. But, let's face it, the guy was asking for it . . . the way he kept ringing that stupid bell, over and over, sent me right over the edge.

In any case, I couldn't let this season's curtain fall without sending best wishes to all of you, for a very happy Christmas!

Btw, for me, it's not quite Christmas without the spicy smells of gingerbread tickling my nose. And this year's gingerbread sculpture depicts my feelings toward a sweet and peaceful holiday.


The gingerbread recipe is here, as well as the foil trick for added dimension.


Merry Christmas, to all my friends and family! And may your season sparkle with joy, love and peace. And, please, have a cookie.

  20. I thought I had commented on this, but obviously I forgot to leave a remark after I viewed it a while back. Just wanted to tell you, you gave me a great idea for a gift for a group of three friends I belong to and we call ourselves "The Peace Sisters." We are always looking for things that evoke that sign, and this will be my gift to them next Christmas.

  21. Thank you guys! The year is starting out fine; even Jack Frost's been behaving lately.


    Linda, I was not aware of your group. The peace sign seems like a perfect fit, and I cannot wait to see what you'll do with it!

    Happy New Year to All!

    Dear Vintage, I hope you won't mind if I plead the fifth :)

    Querida Joey, doesn't the scent of gingerbread baking smell like Christmas?
