What do you mean, "...it's off to work I go"? Looks like you worked your little (and getting smaller all the time) behind off this weekend. Those gifts are delightful, thoughtful and so very fun! Wish I could be there to see the faces of the recipients! Love ya.

I agree...it seems like it's off to rest you go, after all of that, work would be a joy...but then again...I love my job, can't call it work when you have to shop for antiques 24-7. But you amaze me at all the goodies you make...keep that woman barefoot and in the kitchen!

I love the new look of the blog, so festive...you are too much Granny...us old gals really got it together aye...

Love your vintage images - thanks!

It is dead here today - only three of us out of 15 people, and nothing to do. I could have had the day off but as a temp would not have gotten paid for it. But I am sacrificing a few hours pay to leave at 1:30 so I can take my daughter to lunch - if the weather holds. We are supposed to get 3-6 inches today. Ugh!
