Gathering the supplies for Garland making...
A group of longtime friends,
plump cranberries, dried orange slices
and fresh, glossy bay leaves...
Sharing our Christmas memories of past times,
while stringing 'miles' of garland.
A lovely yearly tradition.
(If you are interested in stringing a garland,
you will need a sharp needle, upholstery thread,
bay leaves, cranberries and dried orange slices.
String one orange slice,
3 bay leaves,
Repeat this pattern, for the desired length.
Tie off at ends.)
Each year, I look for a new cookie or two,
to add to our Christmas Cookie exchange.
This year I made these fabulous
Carrot Coconut Cookies, with orange glaze.
They can be found at
if you want to try them !
Have yourself a wonderful Thursday...
