Happy New Year from Me and the TFT!

 Happy New Year dear friends! I do pray you all enjoyed a beautiful, safe Christmas and were able to find Joy in the Reason for the Season.  I had a wonderful, albeit very quiet, Christmas and it was just what the doctor ordered for me. Baking is done. Gifts dropped off. Well wishes all around, and now to celebrate the coming of 2021!  Geez, I am old enough to tell you that this year still looks futuristic to me. Every.Single.Time.I.See.IT! 

 One of my favorite songs, way back when, if you can believe it, was "Tonight We're Gonna Party Like it's 1999!" As if we'd ever make it to 1999! LOL Ahh, the blissful ignorance of youth.

 Hello friends! Welcome.  I'm SO excited! Although, I don't want it to be over so soon, now! Such mixed emotions. Not only that....This is our last TFT party before Christmas!! Next Thursday IS CHRISTMAS EVE!!!

The Christmas Countdown Is On!

 Two weeks until Christmas! Yes, already! I am excited, although admittedly I really LOVE all the time leading up I think just as much. I have been baking away and decorating both, here and at my Mum's house. Such a wonderful way to divert our attention! I always say this, but it's as true today as ever, It truly is The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year! In case you missed it, I shared a super yummy recipe yesterday that I know you all will enjoy so be sure to check out my Almond Florentines...Laceys...Brussels Cookies (Whatever the Name...They Are Divine, and Easier Thank You'd Think) If you have not linked up your Everything Christmas or joined us at our Christmas Eats party, please take a minute and link up! 

Now, I am excited and honored to be joining Katherine and all the other wonderful co-hostesses in bringing you all this week's Thursday Favorite Things party (aka TFT)!

Almond Florentines...Laceys...Brussels Cookies (Whatever the Name...They Are Divine, and Easier Thank You'd Think)

Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is definitely on! Just two more weeks until Christmas Eve! Can you believe it?! If we ever needed a time such as this, it is now. So why not throw ourselves into the traditions we have come to count on that we can... We may not be baking for as much of our family as usual, or we may be doing it in a different way, this year. But, how about sharing with those friends of yours that are also experiencing a scaled-back Christmas, at least as family goes, and do some awesome porch drop-offs of Christmas Cheer? It may seem something small to you, but it also may means the world to them. I have come to find out that a lot of people don't bake for themselves often...I must admit I am a bit surprised, but I have been baking all my life, so what do I know! Either way, sometimes a fresh-baked goodie from your kitchen is the most precious gift you can give of yourself.

Happy December, The Countdown (officially) Begins!

 Good morning and welcome back to the TFT Party! I'm so glad you are here. I pray you all had a safe and healthy Thanksgiving! I pray that you all stay healthy as the COVID numbers are surging. God save us all from such an illness.  I'm so glad to see that, like me and my family, you are all pressing on and doing the decorating and the baking and creating. This, I believe is what will get us all through to the other side of this thing. Truly, I pray blessings over you all.  

Alright, catching up a bit here, last week there was no TFT party, due to Thanksgiving, so I am sharing a few of your features from our November 19th party!
