Happy new year, friends, from long lost me. The holidays kicked in and this little space was left neglected. Truly I meant to visit here to show some Christmas around my house.
I got crazy busy with a commissioned sewing project (I’ll show you that later) and then a friend wanted me to make fifty two blackberry wine cakes for her clients for Christmas gifts. Yes, you read that right, 52 cakes that I baked over the course of two weekends.
This is only about half of the cakes piled on my dining room table!
My tree was up but sat there undecorated until December 21st, the first day of Christmas break from school. My mantle wasn’t decorated until Christmas Eve. All that baking, working my two part time jobs, sewing, shopping, and just life in general simply got the better of me.
But now that the holidays have come and passed, I feel much more relaxed and rested and wanted to pop in to say “Hi” and wish you all a very happy new year.
Dear hubby gave me this Radko ornament fifteen years ago. I collected Radko for a while and now you just don’t find them anymore except maybe on Ebay. I always loved them because of their old world look and brilliant color. I’ve got about ten of them and this one is my favorite.
Do you recognize who this is?
