A Christmas Tin

Hello everyone!  I thought I would show you one of my newest Christmas tins.  I love these things.  I think they look so cheerful and happy.  I got this one at the Salvation Army store a little while back.  I only paid .50 cents for it.  Yesterday, after school, I decided it was time to start filling up some of these tins.  I made pinwheel candy to put inside it.   This is one of our favorite Christmas candies.

Several people on our gift list will be getting homemade candy this year.  Chuck (oldest son) has already called and gave me his wish list for what he wants in his “goody basket”.  I made some peanut butter and chocolate fudge over the weekend for Dave and Jess.  I will post that recipe soon. 

We will be doing school today as usual.  We plan on taking a 2 week Christmas break starting on Dec.19th.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.

My Christmas Tablecloth

I love to use this quilt every year as my tablecloth at Christmas.  I did not make the quilt and to be honest I have had it so long I don’t really remember who did.  I love it though.  It looks so pretty on our table.  I took the picture of it on the floor because I wanted you all to really see it good.  I think if quilts could talk, this one would say cheerful, happy things.

Monday, I did some grocery shopping for our Christmas meal.  We visited some with the Horns which is alway fun.  Yesterday, I worked some more on my sewing machine.  I am still not successful in getting it to work properly.  I hope to work on it more today.  I have many sewing projects I want to start on.  I might have to get Hubby to look at it and see what he can do.

We are getting a drizzle of rain here this morning.  Temperatures are warm-33 degrees.  Hopefully it will just be rain and no ice.   There is a chance of snow for tomorrow and  predictions for a winter storm coming in on Friday night.  If this happens, our Christmas meal plans will have to change.  Chuck and his family are supposed to come tomorrow and Jess and her family are coming on Sunday.  It is so hard to plan things in the winter.  You never know what the weather will bring. 

We are doing “half school” today and tomorrow.  Then on Friday, we will start our Christmas break.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
