Goodies in the mail and a few more Christmas pics

                         Look what the mail lady brought me on Friday!!!
Last week I ordered these from Kath at The Olde Weeping Cedar. I was surprised to get them so fast. I luv, luv them! It's a combination of a bundt cake, three antique mold pantry cakes and a dozen of her prim cini mini's. I love them so much that I emailed her with another order. Be sure to check out her blog to see more prim items for sale.
Can you believe these are the same bowls that the pantry cakes are in? The bottom one I got some months ago at Hope Harbour for $2.00 and I bought the one with ivy painted on it for $1.00 yesterday from a vendor that was set up outside CWF.
I started sanding and painting them as soon as I got home.
Here they are on my dining table. Not sure if this grouping will stay but it works for now.
The quilt shelf in the den decorated for Christmas.
I think these Santa's are my favorites so far. I bought them last year at Prim and Proper after Christmas for 50% off.
I almost forgot to fill you in on my turkey cooking experience. As I mentioned on Thanksgiving I was cooking my first ever turkey. I know that seems hard to believe but I'm kinda weird because I don't like to touch raw meat. It completely grosses me out. But, since Chris had to work for a few hours that day the job was mine. I did ok getting it out the plastic wrap but I had to call Chris and put him on speaker for the rest. I mean really, what purpose does putting the neck and giblet things INSIDE the turkey. Really? That was the single most disgusting thing I have ever done. I know some of you are rolling your eyes and thinking pa-lees! But, put yourself in my shoes. There's just something about the way it FEELS! YUK! YUK! And double YUK!
But any who, Ashton woke up and came to my rescue. She injected the sauce into the turkey for me and I finished the rest. And after spending much time on pins and needles the house began to fill up with the aroma of turkey cooking in the oven. And, surprise! Surprise! It turned out juicy and tender and everyone loved it. I was so proud of myself, but boy-o-boy, do I ever hope and pray that Chris is off the next time we cook a holiday meal : ).
Thanks for stopping by,
Till next time,
Kimberly: )

  1. So glad to hear your first turkey was a success! It really is a gross process.

    Thanks for sharing where you bought the Belsnickles. I've just recently fallen in love with them and they are pretty expensive at most places.

    Your Christmas decor looks great! I hope you'll share more pics.
