As part of Boomama’s Tour of Homes, here's mine:
First let me apologize, my camera was left at a friends house by the daughter and I had to use another one, sorry about the blurriness and poor quality- makes me crazy! But I had a deadline.
Twelve hours after this, I had a half foot of snow on the walk! :)
As we sit and sip our coffee with Nestle's French Vanilla Cream (or hot cocoa if you prefer), you would see this on top of my cupboards, one of my favorite things-my violin (that I did not play but picked up at an estate sale!)
Please help yourself to a cookie- I promise they taste better than the picture looks!!! I had to pull these out of the freezer where they are hidden so the family doesn't eat them all in one day!
(Recipe at the end of post).
This is made from a few of last years Christmas cards:
This is our family room (note the wild 3 year old in the second picture!) :)
This is from the dining room, looking into the living room, catching the dog sleeping on the couch! "Get down from there Macy!" (Who am I fooling- she's there all the time!)
Thank you Boomama for hosting this!
