My husband's birthday was last week, and I surprised him with this beautiful teacup. I found it last summer when we were vacationing up north.
A teacup probably wasn't on the top of his wish list, but he was gracious about it, and even said he liked it. (I did get him another present, too.)
My mom always paints birthday cards for us, and she painted this card for my husband. On the back it says, "Hope yew have a Happy Birthday." Get it?
Because my husband prefers pie, we had homemade apple pie instead of birthday cake.
So, of course, I've already borrowed his teacup for tea. These salted caramels are amazing.
My nephews in Colorado (aged 8, 11, and 13) participate in a young entrepreneurs' marketplace every year where they sell products they have made. This year, they sold gluten-free baking mixes and granola, so they sent us a box for Christmas.
We are not gluten free, but half the ladies in my book club are, so these will be great to make up for book club nights at my house.
They also sent scone mix, waffle mix, granola, and granola bars.

All our children are home, and I am one happy mama. Not much to do now except cooking and enjoying their company.
Thank you all for being such dear and encouraging friends this year. I have so appreciated reading your comments and getting to know you. I'll be around this week, but mostly I'm going to concentrate on family and celebrating Jesus' birth. Blessings to you and yours, xo Deborah.
