I had a lovely Christmas. Lee's mom and I hung out watching TV and threatening to go out for chineses food waiting for Lee to finish dinner. I made a chocolate soufle for dessert.
Even got the tree put up in the kitchen, still don't have many ornaments so I decorated the tree with necklaces I had made. The necklace showing in the picture is made of green jade and clear crystals.

We also tried to do a lot of good and help others during the season.
Our cat Caramel is enjoying the chair that we got so I can sit at the counter and work now. At least when the she will let me. She is all cat and assumed that the chair was hers! She is such a pretty and thankfully small Maine coon.
We've been spending a bit of money getting things that we've needed for the house but haven't been able to replace until now. A chair for the kitchen and some new bed linens. Yesterday we went to Sears and I had so much shopping luck I couldn't believe it! I never find deals. But Sears had cotton sheets! So many stores have only microfiber sheets. So we found a nice set of sheets in blue and a beautiful new blanket in a dark blue. But in the clearance section I found a quilt in the wedding ring pattern! I've been wanting one for years but couldn't afford it. It was only $35! So I grabbed it and wouldn't let go! When Lee found me I said it was mine! It is in blue like the sheets with a green accent. It so beautiful! It also had two matching shams! No more using hot glue or painting on the bed. We got all our bedclothes for about $90! Such a happy find. We really needed them.
The baking season is not over yet and friends that are reading this are not yet safe from being fruit caked!
