Happy Holidays!

This is the first Christmas EVER that I don't have
a tree up, I haven't sent Christmas cards and I've
not wrapped even one gift!

Nope, it's not a Grinch Christmas - it's been beyond
busy at work and I have a nasty sinus thing going
on so when I get home - I've just been
dropping on the couch!

Today is clean the house, wrap the presents, put
up the tree and hang the stockings day because
for Mr. Biff and I - tomorrow is our Christmas.
I am sharing some pictures of us (I don't
normally but since it's Christmas and all :)

This is another first for us - Mr. Biff is working
on Christmas day!   The restaurant he is working
at is serving upwards of 200 people tomorrow
between brunch and Christmas dinner.
(The Fabulous Mr. Biff is on the right)

So...first Christmas on my own with my "girls"...
*sigh*  I am going to stay in my jammies and
watch chick flicks all day!
I hope whatever you are doing, wherever you
are going you will be safe, happy and healthy!

Merry Christmas!

Peg & Mr. Biff & "the girls"!

Do I Hear An Echo of Laughter?

Ever read someone's blog and they seemed to be
sending you just what you need - just when
you need it?  It's what I love about blogging -
if you can't conjur up something you
can bet there's some talented person
out there that will!

Well this morning, with my cup of coffee, I was
perusing blogland and stopping by all my favs - when
I came to Angie's blog Echoes of Laughter.

Wow - I have been hemming and hawing (I think
that's what I've been doing or is it humming
and hawing? and what is hawing?, I digress)
I couldn't believe how easy Angie has made
it for me, you,  really - everyone to make these 
 beautiful, thoughtful Christmas gifts.

It's not just the product - altho everything looks
stellar - it's how Angie packaged things too - really
lovely! With a how-to for each step
including the labels.

She is sharing 10 Homemade Gift Ideas for
Friends and Neighbours like this one:

Peppermint Foot Soak (Love It!)  You can
find her "how to" here.

Angie also graciously shared her grandmother's sugar
cookie recipe amongst other things....heck, just
go on over and check it too can be
amazed and inspired!

Thanks Angie for allowing me to share and
thanks for all the great ideas! (I'll be making
those cookies today!)

What are you waiting for?  Head on over
and don't forget to say "hi" from me!

Hugs & blessings,

Sunday Funnies....

First a Christmas funny....

Oh my, the weekend really flew by - I got SOOOOO
much done tho - that makes me very happy!  A while back
I purchased this awesome hutch (you can read about it
here) only to find out when I moved that my new dining
room had a built in alcove for a hutch and my darling
new hutch was about a foot too wide!  YIKES!

So what did I do?  I did what every savvy blogger
would do - I scoured Craigslit once again and found
another hutch....making sure this time that it was
the right size and this one was already painted white!
Yeah!  Gotta love it!

The other hutch, by the way, is now living happily
in my family room - can you have too much
stylish storage?  I think not!

Hope your weekend's been a happy one!

Hugs & Blessings,
