I believe my mother-in-law gave me this. He currently resides in my spare bedroom all year round.
My teddy, one of my favorite Christmas ornaments outside the nativity scene I mentioned in a previous post.
He sits on a little trunk in my hallway. Isn't he cute?
Please ignore the junk in the background! I "dressed up" my inside workroom last night with some estate/garage sale finds. This is a sprig with a pinecone - plastic but I like it. Better looking in person as my photo skills are HORRIBLE.
My mini Christmas trees that stay on my entertainment center all year long. Found at Hobby Lobby (the green one) and Dollar General (the gold one).
My workroom door all dressed up for the holidays!
LOL - So, I'm lazy - pain does that to a person!
Okay, as promised, here is a WONDERFUL EASY divinity recipe. I usually make these at Christmas.
Divinity in a Microwave
2 cups sugar
1/8 t. salt
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup karo
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts
Combine sugar, salt, water, in 8-cup glass measure.
Microwave on high, uncovered 3 minutes. Stir-microwave on high uncovered 8-10 minutes or until a small amount dropped in very cold water forms a hard ball (260). Beat egg whites in large bowl until stiff--pour over hot syrup in thin stream on high speed-add vanilla continuing until mixture holds its shape and starts to lose its gloss (about 5 minutes); fold in nuts-spoon onto wax paper-approx. 50 pieces
See, now isn't that sooo easy!
Let me just say, Remember the REAL meaning of Christmas this holiday season. The Christ Child. Thank you dear God for sending him to us so we may be saved from our sins and join you in heaven one day. Amen.
