Two Cents Tuesday! SWEET!

I love this challenge! Dashed off to grab the camera and do some “food styling”. I recently caught some grief from friends for cutting baked chocolate chip cookie dough in to holiday shapes. “Those aren’t Christmas cookies!” was the chorus of voices.

Hey, wait a minute, we LOVE chocolate chip cookies :)! tct-header

Second Hand Shopping and Santa’s Feline Helpers…

A few blog posts back I mentioned Practical Goods and Sophie Joe’s Emporium in St. Paul, MN. Our household is shopping local and vintage this year and today I stopped by Sophie Joe’s. I discovered a treasure trove of cool stuff.

My list:

1. 8 picture frames so the Esther-ettes swim group (also blogged about!) would each have a photo in a cool frame. Check!

2. Hostess gift(s). Check!

3. A few ornaments: a bag of 3 handmade sheep for a dollar. Check!

4. Two lovely scarves. Wow!

Oh and must mention, the cats “helped” organize…
