Where did this last week go? Somebody get it back for me - I have lots to do.
The rush is on to start getting ready for the holidays so I am making lots of lists.
Here are my "likes" for this week:
1. New bloggers added to our group over at Lee Anna's post. We are all so different yet the same. We enjoy blogging about our likes and lives but also enjoy seeing other's posts!
2. My new Brookstone pillow. My daughter gave me a new bed pillow. She had puchased some for her home and after we spent a day organizing my grandson's bedroom, she wanted to repay me for the help (which was not necessary, obviously) and gave me a new pillow.
I have never had such a luxury- I usually spend $5-10 on a pillow. The Brookstone pillow is expensive but worth it.
I have sleep issues for health reasons and yet this pillow has helped me sleep better. It is microfiber with a cotton shell, ultra soft and machine washable.
3. Applesauce Cake. My mom made 2 cakes when I was growing up: Mayonaise cake and Applesauce cake. They are made from scratch with basic on- hand ingredients for a single layer and turn out moist. My applesauce cake was found at allrecipes.com.
4. My red Frosty table toppers.
This second one has peppermint candies on the back. They are each 15 inch square, made in about an hour each, and from scraps. I love the rabbit on number 2. These will be in the craft sale next week.
On a sad note, I liked the tributes I have read on blogs and Facebook for Nancy Zieman this week on her passing. She was a pioneer, author and designer of sewing who was just so pleasant to watch. I not only watched her sewing on PBS for many years, but I still receive her notion catalog each year. She will be sorely missed.
I'm going to try and design as well as install a simple front window Christmas deco this week so I can have it ready by the day after Thanksgiving. I've purchased the parts at great discount at Michael's and the Dollar Store- so that's a start. Plus, each afternoon I'm making small gifts for the craft sale next week, while getting other household chores done! Never a dull moment.
Thanks for dropping by and join us for more fun at Lee Anna's post: Not Afraid of Color
Have a great day!
