I gave my love a cherry...

These are quick  and easy to make and taste delicious !
Simply take glacĂ© cherries and wrap them with marzipan, then dip them in melted white chocolate and cover with your choice of sprinkles.
You could present them in a pretty box or tin, or wrap some in a cellophane bag tied with a bow. 
...and they really are that easy - and they really are that delicious!!!
Yum yummy yum yum!

Happy Hannuka

Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah, come light the Menorah,
Let's have a party, we'll all dance the hora.
Gather round the table, we'll give you a treat.

S'vivon to play with, and Latkes to eat.

And while we are playing,
The candles are burning low.
One for each night, they shed a sweet light,
To remind us of days long ago;
One for each night, they shed a sweet light,
To remind us of days long ago;

(You can hear the song here)

It's a braw bricht moonlicht nicht the nicht!

I wanted to share a couple of photos from last week. They were taken at around 11pm. There was snow on the ground, the moon was out and it was so bright it looked almost like the daytime. 
It was crisp, serene and beautiful, and if it hadn't been so slippy on the road, I would have loved to have gone for a walk in it. Gorgeous. I wish I could bottle the atmosphere for you and post it to you.

As the Scottish saying goes...

"It's a braw, bricht, moonlicht nicht the nicht." 

("It's a beautiful, bright moonlit night tonight")

Salty pin cushion

I'm posting over at It's a Creative World today about my salt cellar pin cushion. Why not drop by and have a look.

We had a power outage from 6pm last night until about 10am this morning. I'm glad we have a log fire in our living room! The only damage that we can see so far due to the high winds is a fence panel has blown down. I'm glad the storm is over! It was a bit wild out there.

December is here!

Winter has brought us it's first snow. It's been like this for about 3 days  although there is a sign of a thaw today. The little birdies have been very thankful for the nuts we've put out for them. (Well, they didn't leave me a note or anything, but they do look thankful!)

My parents have been visiting since Sunday, so there has not been much crafting going on in the last few days, but I am spending today tidying up and getting ready to get back to business.
