balloons balloons

I have balloons on my mind lately. I recently gave the book "The Red Balloon as a holiday gift." Last month I had Karl do a portrait shoot with balloons, which I hope we can do again. And I was happy today to spot this print from Etsy seller blancucha.

past ornament swaps

This Christmas is my third participating in the Holiday Ornament Swap put together by cake & pie and freshlyblended. It works like this: I am put in a group of ten or so swappers, and I create and mail an ornament to each person. In turn each person mails one to me. I am so happy with the way my project turned out! So far I've received 3 ornaments, and I can't wait to see the rest. They're little presents that keep coming throughout the month. I love all of the varied handmade touches now on my tree! The ornaments above are from my first two years of swapping.

the bounty

Last spring we became members of Worden Farm, a local organic farm in Punta Gorda. We have been itching for our first delivery ever since, and today is the day we've been waiting for! The veggies are so beautiful, not to mention delicious. Tonight we had grilled eggplant and some salad greens. (Market pic via Worden Farm site.)

maybe for Christmas...

I can gift these yummy macaroons from Sucré. Or just order them for myself...
