Designed by Susan Branch

This may appear to be a little out of focus, but I think the message is clear - ten more days until Christmas!   This is one of Susan Branch's designs, and the blocks can be changed each day as we "countdown to Christmas!

Be sure to give yourself time to relax with a cup of tea in one of these lovely mugs!  They will help get you in the Christmas spirit!:-)  Add a cookie, or two, and that should really "do the trick!"

Of course, there will be the dishes to wash, so the dishtowels are a necessary part of our "treat."

These are all items that have been designed by Susan Branch, and I recently learned that they are no longer available!  It is a bit of good fortune that I was able to find some of these pieces.  The cookie tray and the Merry Christmas tray were found, along with the mugs, at a store in an outlet mall located in a small town about an hour away.  I didn't realize it at the time, but they must have been close out items.

The towels, the sugar bowl, the cream pitcher, and the tray on which the mugs are sitting were all gifts from one of our daughters.  Shopping on eBay seems to be the way to go these days.:-)

I hope you will go to read Susan Branch's blog from yesterday and today.  She has written a very special personal Christmas story from her childhood - a Christmas that she remembers well.

Do YOU have a special Christmas memory?
