I only have fun little bits to share with you today :) I have been knitting, reading, and enjoying my family and home. One little bit, oh so delicious cookies made by my dd#1 and my dh. They both make the most fantastic chocolate chip cookies!!!
Bit number two... my dd#2 brought home this adorable mouse treat tonight. It is made from a stemmed maraschino cherry, Hershey kiss, and two almond bits for ears. The picture is blurry and I simply could not get one to come out clear. I believe it is the reflection of the flash on plate. What a cute treat for a party or gathering!!!
My final bit? This really cute miniature fireplace dd#2 and I made for her diorama at school. She said it needed something so we engineered a fireplace complete with fire and a beautiful vase of flowers on the mantel. Most importantly we had a really good time together making it and I am so proud of her. She is so talented!!!
