We did the twelve days of Christmas around here, getting little things daily. Our traditional purdys chocolate ( it's the best, but I'm a chocolate snob). I gave Pepper the heart shaped teapot, I bought myself a few tables for the living room, Bryan got some cd's, new boots, a coat, I got a scrabble card game called slam! Pepper got a huge crib board for four people, which also deviates from the game a bit. I got a requested book which I'll speak about later, some earrings, and other goodies. All in all we never missed the Christmas morning opening....instead we have enjoyed the season with family, friends and laughter! What joyful time it is, I'm still enjoying my ornaments! A releif from the three months of disarray around here!!!

Luluspetals was inquiring about my teapots. These ones are Peppers, designed by one of my favorite artists, Britto. I have a Mary Naylor one in the Kitchen. Pepper's the big tea drinker in this house. Bryan and I love our coffee, on occasion we have tea. Mine is always well steeped, almost black. Also favored by my Scottish buddy Barb. Who says I make the best tea in town. Mom carried on that tradition from my paternal Scottish grandmother. Try leaving that tea bag in a little longer, or using two bags per pot! Make sure the water is bubbley boiling and see if you don't like our way too!
