  1. I could see the Nut Cracker every year. It's like Dark Choc. never get enough.
    Have a great time, and love the Herbs. just used a big bunch of Basil for Pesto.
    Happy Holidays yvonne

  2. Seeing the Nutcracker is always a family favorite. Love the herbs, picking some rosemary for a kitchen bouquet. Happy Friday!

  3. Messes on the table at Christmas time are often lovely. I love the display on the table when I am wrapping presents.

    Maybe I need to create a mess with ribbon and cuttings of rosemary from the garden!

  4. Sounds like a nice day for you. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  5. Oh I spent so many years with the Nutcracker. I say "with" as my daughter danced for many years....I attended rehearsals, performances, parties. I carpooled, chaperoned and performed any other chore asked of me. I enjoyed each and every minute. Balanchine is my favorite. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs! Bonnie

  6. Lynne, me and the girls are going to see the Nutcracker before Christmas too! I hope you had a great time at the performance. Tell us about it, please. Love that pig picture hehehe.


  7. There is nothing more ADORABLE than piglets in French ballet class! teeeeeeee

    ADORABLE!!!! Bonjour Lynne! Anita

  8. My daughter in LOVE brought firewood from their ranch and it FILLED our wood firebox!! In all that firewood was a large stem of mistletoe! I made a bouquet.

    Thought about you this evening as I addressed cards.....You KNOW how much I love being friends with you!!!
