A few weeks back I ordered some purse hooks off of eBay. The idea was to use them as jewellery hooks for my longer necklaces and the such. They arrived Friday and I was delighted with them. Here’s a peek:
SO pretty! And this is what they look like doing their job: Considering that I had these hanging off a clothes hanger before, I would say this is MUCH better!! :) Do you use purse hooks for anything? I’m all for ideas!
So I was coerced by my lovely daughter into baking sugar cookies yesterday. I’m not fond off anything too picky and I would classify these as picky. Regular cut outs would’ve been OK, but we *had* to get technical. But I survived and here are the results (which turned out better than I thought they would!!) This is what they were suppose to look like:
LOL!!! I haven’t taken any pictures of our tree yet, but we did subject Charlie and Pepper to some dress up time! Pepper applied the “drop and roll” technique while Charlie just fell over where he stood, stiff as a board. Fun times! Hehe!
FOOD! The 2 waffles above were savoury ones from a recipe in a Rachael Ray magazine. They had turkey sausage, potato and cheddar cheese in them. YUMMY!
So, I’m gonna do the Thanks & Giving part of this post second to last tonight instead of last because I have some great news about a giveaway to finish off with. So leading up to that I would like to say that this week I am thankful for my blog. I have met some AMAZING people, virtually and in person in the 2 years that I’ve been posting on Krista’s Kravings. I’ve also had the opportunity to host some fun contests and sample & review terrific products. I’ve been exposed to numerous recipes and new ingredients that I would never have used if not for blogging. It has been a place for me to chronicle the highlights of my life and I enjoy coming back to it each day that I can. If you have a blog, what are YOU most thankful for because of it? And this weeks food item is: RICE!! Remember, it can be any type of rice that you want. Uncle Ben’s was on sale for $0.88 this week so I snagged it. :) To see week’s 1-8, click on the thanks & giving tab at the top of the blog.
