Christmas gifts....

We come to another Friday!  Has this week had some special times in it for you?  Perhaps you are still anticipating that gathering of family that many of us enjoy during this time of year.  Will that happen this week-end? 

I enjoy giving books as birthday or Christmas gifts, and I also enjoy receiving them.:-)  Let me share a book a received with you. 

Do you know about this book?

Cherry Menlove lives in Sussex "across the pond."  This is her first book, and it was on my list!  She works through the year with special holidays and gives ideas of how to make them special. 

The Table of Contents.

Hopefully you are able to read the special days she includes in the book.  I was excited to read about Valentine's Day since that is the next special day we have.

A craft!

Wonderful cookies!

Decorating ideas!

Now I am inspired to begin working on plans for Valentine's Day!  How many weeks do I have?:-)

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.
