where has the year flown to?

Happy Holiday Season!!

Isn't this little sheep the cutest? My mom sent her to me. She don's a bikini underneath the fur coat and has 6 outfits. Her boyfriend tried to talk her out of sending it to me cause he thought it was dumb..but mom knew i'd like it!

And some one posted a question about tea. I enjoy tea in a mug, it's a funky mug with a gecko peeking over the edge. But for true tea enjoyment my favorite cup is this one. It seems very irish to me and being green (my fav color)and earthy / organic all at once it covers the bases! i have a simple ceramic tea pot (one large one little) both with knit covers that steep the tea and a whole shelf in our cupboard is dedicated to mostly loose teas. Both my daughter and hubby enjoy simple unsweetened teas as well....lately cranberry being the flavor of choice ( hey, if you know where to locate an apple/pistachio blend please let me know though! a client brought me a bag about a year ago and i milked it till it was gone and have not relocated it's source!) Off to run my days off errands and get things set up for the holidays. *smile*

Also have you seen this?:

I love snowflakes, they are each beautiful and unique. I grew up in northern NH though and was buried (literally, lol) under snowflakes more months out of the year than not! (not complaining though, i loved it) A few years after marriage hubby moved me to a tropical paradise, no snow..for 13 years! i started collecting snowmen once settled. My daughter who grew up on the islands did not see snow till she was 14, now 16. We still both run outside to play and catch the snow, build a mini snowman on the neighbors car, etc... I would love to have this snowflake made with her birthstone for us both to wear. Myself so that she was near my heart during the day and for her so she could enjoy the piece and think about their uniqueness...and know her mum loves her!
