. . . I don't know about you. . . but I'm really feeling the Christmas season spirit growing day by day! I also want to thank you all for your comments. . . so many I'm not able to answer them!. . . but please know that so many of you made me smile with your fun comments. . . (& it's good to know I'd have some company in the corner at the cocktail party!)
Todays topic is our go-to book for Christmas. . . & for the past few years - ever since I discovered the wonderful designer, Tone Finnanger , & her delightful books - this book, Sew Pretty Christmas Homestyle, has been the book that I go to for the decorations that I am slowly (but surely) making for my home. If I had the time - I would make each & every one! . . . & there are so many wonderful gift ideas as well!
The other book that is definitely my go-to book - is my Bible. I read the history & the stories that surround 'the reason for the season' - over & over, from the mention of the events in the Old Testament books - to telling of the nativity from the four disciples in the Gospels. What a wonder. . . & what good news. (!) What is your favorite go-to book at Christmas-time?
I'm thinking that todays cookie recipe is perfect for the Mistletoe Make & Bake. . . as it is full of pucker-power! . . . It's Lemon Bars! These yummy cookie/bars are delicate & just the right amount of sweet & tart. . . (just make sure the lemon juice is fresh. . . not the kind in a bottle. . .)
