scenes of the season

 As I was making ginger cookies last week, I took this picture.  This is my mom's recipe.  When I got married, she gave me a recipe box filled with our family recipes, written in her hand.  It's one of the best gifts ever.
 Here's a couple of close-ups of the tree - new this year
is the red ribbon, picked out by Sam.
Also new are the wee red mittens that I knit up.
Yes, I'm charmed by them.
 My camera is always blurry with no flash, but I like
the way the lights look.  I'll make the picture smaller,
and maybe you won't notice that it's out of focus.
Merry Christmas!

The recipes from my mom in her handwriting are so priceless to me. I plan to copy your idea of photographing the recipe with the ingredients. Such a great extra keepsake.

In fact, I want to do the same with my grandmother's recipe and frame it for my mom.

Love your blog.

Thanks for the inspiration & Merry Christmas!
