Merry Christmas Eve!
I’ve had such a fun month of baking, and blogging for 24 consecutive days is always a challenge for me. I suppose it’s tradition now that I’ve been doing it for four years! I hope you’ve enjoyed it all as much as I have.
I don’t have a new recipe for you today, but if you’re looking for an easy last-minute gift I might suggest a jar of Spiked Hot Fudge Sauce or maybe thisRocky Road Brownie Mix. Today I thought you might like a little peek at how we decorated the workshop for Christmas.
I’m all about the retro Christmas ornaments and nostalgic knick-knacks! Little touches of color seemed to brighten the whole room and definitely made doing dishes a bit more cheerful.
As you can tell, I’m really into the white artificial pine this year. It’s draped around windows, on top of cabinets – all over! It’s hard to see, but our little white tree has macaron, cupcake and doughnut ornaments hanging on its branches. OH – and I’d like to introduce you to Ann! She wears many hats here and is a great helper. She’s also an excellent pug wrangler, which I find extremely valuable. Biscuit and Churro love her to pieces.
Hello hello, it’s me with all those jars of Port Wine Jelly! I’m tying these up with pretty ribbon for gifting. (If you’re a family member reading this, act surprised when you get your jar.)
Our tall channel rack was overflowing with cookies and candy because we baked, cooked, or assembled something new every day! Above you can see Stained Glass Sugar Cookies, Flowers of Scotland Sugar Cookies, and just a peek of Tahini Fudge.
It’s hard to believe Christmas is tomorrow! I wish all of you love and love and love. Merry Christmas. Happy Holidays. I hope you get to eat all of your favorite things this week!
