It has been quite awhile since I have posted and a lot has happened since then. My daughter is off at college, I started taking some courses, and have been working on doing some repurposing of rooms in the house. The past few months have been difficult (adjusting to my daughter being gone, we are very close), challenging (the course has definately kept my brain active) and full of change. I am finally beginning to feel like I am getting my feet back under me, and a good thing to as Christmas is just around the corner.
Today I did some Christmas baking and would like to share it with you. First up is my daughters favorite, Butterscotchy Almond Bars. A few will be going in her parcel this week :)
Of course, I couldn't bake her favorites without also baking some of my sons favorites, Brownie Minatures.
It also gave me a chance to pull out some of my Grandmothers china, and of course, my favorite Christmas teapot. I'm a huge fan of Cardinals and found this teapot on clearance at Winners last year after Christmas. I just can't enough of it :)
