Big hugs and thanks to our hostess with the mostess Stacey from Poofing The Pillows
And since we're talking about hostesses I want to chat with you about hostess happies. You know. The little somethin' somethin' you bring the sweet one who invited you, overnighted you or just plain ole welcomed you into her home. I have a few ideas for you
Anything homemade speaks from your heart and I know would be appreciated by your hostess.
Your crafty friend will love some glittered or Santa painted clothespins and have 100 ways to use them. Clip them on a pretty card to gift her.
Ornaments are always fun and this year I made some cupcake ornaments to share with the girls in my bible study class.
The little paper mache houses all decked out for Christmas are fun to use in your gift presentation. Fill them with cookies or cheese straws to make your neighbor's day.
For you Dallas area gals I have 2 words for you concerning cheese straws. Festive Kitchen. They make the most amazing slice and bake cheese straws. Technically rounds but you know what I mean.You can thank me later.
Speaking of food. Food gifts are the absolute best at Christmas! This year I made chocolate spoons.
I made a variation of the traditional spoons we've all made before. I'd seen on Pinterest where you spoon the melted chocolate into ice cube trays, sprinkle with crushed peppermints or other yummies and stick the spoon in and chill! So fun! And you get more chocolate than just dipping the spoon. Stir into hot milk or coconut milk for a holiday treat. BTW the butterscotch spoon stirred into hot cider is life changing. Just saying.
Ok. I will now step down from the hostess happy soapbox.
On another note I spoke with you some months back about selling our home of 16 years and downsizing. We are all set to begin building our forever home in historical downtown McKinney.
Here's the floor plan.
I'm so excited and a bit nervous, but I think I'm up to the challenge! Come back and join me on this Texas journey!
