Tis the season~

Tis the season~
We are all in the gift giving mode and I wanted to let you know about this special Christmas Art Event. Wyanne is a wonderful multimedia artist and is having a special Blogging event on December 7th. Pop over and see what she has!


I will also mention that we have some great cookbooks and aprons~ shameless self promotion! We can get them off in time for the holidays. They make a perfect christmas gift. Visit our country store A Pinch of Dis and A Pinch of Dat for some gift ideas for that hard to find gift.
I'll even autograph my cookbook for blogging friends. Our kitchen is always full of friends and good food. The kitchen tree is decorated with candy canes and cookie cutters. It makes baking easier when everything is right at your fingertips.

While I had a great time shopping with my Blogging Babes, I am struggling with gift ideas again this year. I am thinking Bill and I should just swap credit cards for a day.
What do y'all think?
Sandi

The friends, the buttermilk cornbread, and the lovely yellow flower centered within the asparagus are all lovely. :)

I love your kitchen tree with the cookie cutters...I've always wanted one in my kitchen! You and I have matching rooster families, too. :)

I need to go browse around your store now...

Andi said...

Love your tree!!! Sounds like you girls had quite a fun time there in Birmingham. It was fun seeing the pictures on Kat's blog and reading about it.

PAT said...

Your kitchen tree is perfect, Sandi!

Swapping credit cards, works for me!;-)

A kitchen tree. Who'd a thunk it? I agree on the card swap, specially if his limit is higher than yours...have a good time shopping...I can't believe it's only 20 (nearly 19 now) days till it's all over but the shoutin'!

I like the idea of swapping credit cards for the day! Must suggest that to my hubby, I know who'd get the better end of the deal! lol I just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I really apreciate that and I hope you'll come back soon!

In a way, that's what DH and I do. For several years now we both purchase a couple of items that we (personally) want, wrap them and put them under the tree. I don't tell him what he's "giving" me and vice versa. Then, on Christmas morning, we unwrap our "gifts" and each of us are surprised what the other wanted enough to buy themselves! Clever, huh?!

I love your tree with the cookie cutters. What a great idea. I wanted to put something small in our kitchen but couldn't think of anything. Thanks.

The Moravian stars look great on your kitchen tree. I have a strand of lights on my mantle in that shape. It's a favorite thing! You're right about the gift-giving...today I bought clothes for my husband and as I was checking out I thought, he's gonna bring all this back. It's the thought that counts, tho. Happy shopping! Thanks for the visit to my blog...you're welcome anytime.

Thanks for the shameless promotions of your cafe's products! I am thinking seriously about some of the fried green tomato mix.
