All Is Calm, All Is Bright

Hello! Twyla here. Didn't Lindsey do a great job on the altered playing card in our last post? I'm so proud of her creativity and the quality of her work.

On this Sunday morning I wanted to share some of my beautiful postcards with you.

I'm so glad that you appreciate the images that we share. I think these evoke the spirit of Christmas in a calm and peacefull way. Some days during the Christmas preparations it's easy to forget the gentleness of the season.

One of my dearest blogging friends is Jill from Bittersweet and the Little Soap Company. Jill is one of those people who inspires me daily. I always admire her ingenuity. I just think Jill could do anything she sets her mind to do. One of the things she accomplished this year was writing a cookbook. I am lucky enough to have one. They are her family's recipes. I can't wait to try some of them such as her Grandma Lola's Egg Noodles, Skillet Stroganoff Pork Chops and her Red Velvet Cake.
Isn't the cover pretty? It is for sale in her shop.

Jill also makes the Best soap I have ever used! Also the best lip balm. I can't even use any other kind now and my son Jordan can't either! Our lips have never been softer! If you are looking for a special gift for someone on your list, you might check out Jill's shop, Bittersweet and the Little Soap Company for some awesome choices that I know would be appreciated!

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Good morning Twyla! Those lucky girls have a deer coming right up to their window!!! ☺ That was my childhood dream... I wanted to live like Snow White in a little cottage in the woods and all the animals would be my firends! Instead, I grew up to have a house full of boys who want o EAT all the deer! Gasp! Oh well, I still have my dreams.

Happy Sunday! ♥
