It's Snowing Magic

Walking through this season...
I am happy.
I think about all my wishes
that have come true~
I also remember those I love that
are not with me.
I miss them.
I know that our hearts will always be one~

My Nephew Andrew
When I see my nephew growing so fast.
I know that fairytales are true,
&
I know that
it is snowing magic right
Now!
~~~
~~
I send you all
Big Warm Hugs
&
Cups full of Magic!

Cookie Dough Confession

Ever since I can remember,
it was the cookie dough
that I really couldn't wait to eat!
Every year my Mom & I made our batch of
Frosted Christmas Sugar Cookies together~

The bowl of delicious DOUGH was honestly to me, too good to be true.
It was better than anything I ever ate.
The Thick, Creamy, Buttery, Vanilla,
sweet but not too sweet heavenly dough melted slowing in my mouth.
I Absolutely loved it...
Especially after my Mom made it pale green
for the Christmas Trees~

Shhhhhhhhh.........

Confession time is now and I promise I won't ever tell..

Did you like the dough or the cookie best?

Now it is the sprinkles on the green frosting
I love most~
Have an extra Bright weekend
my darling friends!!!

Hugs!

Fortnum & Mason

Where in the world have I been?
I know it takes me a while to catch on
sometimes....
BUT

I seriously cannot believe
I just discovered via Carol over at

You can build your own F&M "hamper" that looks like this!

It must be that time of year....


for me to discover a brand new obsession for myself~


Located in London since 1707 ~


These hampers out for delivery must be full of presents for the all the good little ladies & gentlemen this year~

Like these Amazing rain boots~

Or maybe the special "homegrown"
Superior Honey
right from the buildings very own bee hives~

Santa could make his job so simple
with just one stop at
Fortnum & Mason


This F&M hamper empty
would truly be enough to make me happy
forevermore~

Window Shopping in Paris

One of my favorite things to do in Paris
is to walk the streets at night
and window shop!
The windows light up just like real magic~

I always come back the next day...
to purchase my favorite found muses...

Finding a special window,
is sometimes like finding a hidden present...

waiting just for me....
to slowly unwrap it with my very own eyes~

Especially like this one.....Cire Trvdon~

A gift in itself just to walk into~

Visiting Le Train Bleu Restaurant at the train station
was beyond my wildest parisian dreams~

I tried....
really I did.. not to take more pictures of
Laduree but I couldn't help myself~

Always & always amazing!
And it always will be~

This years collector boxes have
Monsieur or Madame Copper Cameos
on black boxes!!

I LOVE THEM~


XOXO's


Have A festive week my most darling friends!
