(Almost) Happy New Year!!!!!

Whether it's 1919.
Or 2017.

Most want peace, liberty and prosperity for all in this great country of ours.

Wishing everyone across the planet a happy and healthy 2017!!

"See you next year!!!"
I've been saying that lame joke since I was a little kid. Man, it never gets old either!!

and my sweet hubs isn't the only one disappointed.

Wesołych Świąt...

And she brought forth her first born son wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room at the inn.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock at night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in the manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:7-14

Un-Firkin Believable!

Lots going on at the ol' Countryfolk homestead with cleaning and baking Christmas cookies.

But I was able to sneak away to a local moving sale and found a few goodies!!!

An old firkin!!!! Woo hoo!!

Man, I love firkins. Not only are the cool looking, they served a purpose back in the day. I remember my mom had an old one. But I'm guessing she sold it at one of the many garage sales she had over the years. This one has seen better days but that is what drew me in. I'll take old and worn over new and pristine any day. Many of you can relate.

THEN I spotted these old wooden shaker boxes!!

You can only imagine how I held onto all three with a death grip as others at the sale were eyeballing my treasures. As I put them down to pay, I found myself guarding them in a Bruce Lee stance. ((giggle))

So that's it for now.
I've got lots of baking to do today. So back to work!

I hope everyone is enjoying this blessed season and not stressing over things.
Life is too short. Have a Christmas cookie and relax.

Be merry and bright, too.
