"...the French plums blushed in modest tartness..."

Susan Branch knows "WHIMSEY."  :-)  I took photos of pages, from my copy of her "Christmas From The Heart Of The Home."  Susan knows whimsey.  !!!!!!! 

And of course, everyone knows she is a very, very, very talented artist.  Not only with her art-itself, but with personally writing, all the copy in her books.

-happy sigh-

My husband is making me Gluten Free Stuffin'... cook in the chicken, we got at the Healthy Living Store. 

He always stuffs our family dinner holiday turkeys, with his special stuffin'.  But since it uses regular bread crumbs, I can't eat it.  -moan-  Soooo, he is making me G/F Stuffin'!!!!!!!!!

And I will be making him, a Mincemeat Pie with my home made crust.  :-)))  Which he loves.

-chuckle-  Did you notice my "painted nails"???  ,-)  Rarely do I put nail polish on.  Once in a while, I get the urge.  Since I've never had a manicure in my life, when I do it, I am the one who has to do it.  And I am the one who has to remove it, when it gets chipped and messy.  -moan-

But last evening, I got out all my from-over-the-years bottles of nail polish.  Selected one named "Merlot" and added a thick coat of "SpArKleS" on top.  Obviously, my pic is all-messed-up, from cropping.  But...  That's what I did.  -grin-

I LOVE Susan Branch. I love her style and her sense of whimsy. I also like Mary Engelbreit for the same reason.
Guess what? I love your nails- the color is lovely. About the only thing I do for myself is get a manicure. My nails are awful and break so easy that is one treat I give myself about every 3 weeks. Which reminds me- I am past due and have a party to go to tonight. I just hit one of those cheap places in the mall- yep- I am cheap!
Hope you have a great day- xo Diana
