Welcome to my home! Feel free to click on the pictures to make them larger.
On the front door are my ice skates from when I was a teenager. I grew up in Canada and remember spending entire winters with my skates on! Let's go inside where it is warm...
Here is our Christmas tree, all lit up. This year we used white lights, lots of ornaments, candycanes and red bows.
"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."
Here is my "Rustic Woodland Scene" on the coffee table. A sweet family of deer are nestled in the greenery.

Even my bedroom has a little Christmas sparkle. I've been trying to get up early in the mornings, but my warm flannel sheets are not helping!
Here is my diningroom, feel free to pull up a chair. Our second Advent candle is lit and the kettle is on.
It looks like everyone is having fun on the icy pond!
Before you leave, let me get you a hot cup of tea and...
a slice of Eggnog Bread. Here is the recipe in case one slice isn't enough. :0)
Eggnog Quick Bread
2 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1 cup eggnog
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 1 bread pan. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, stir in sugar, eggnog, butter, vanilla and almond extract. Add mixture to flour and stir just until moistened. Bake 45-60 min. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
Frosting: Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp. vanilla and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg in small bowl. Add enough eggnog to reach drizzling consistancy. Drizzle over bread and serve.
