Some Christmas Gifts from Some Dear Bees!

The other day I shared with you what I made for the Singing Bee and the More Creative Bee.  Now let me show you a couple of treasures they gave me for Christmas.

Now the More Creative Bee certainly deserves her name.  Wait till you see this......
She found these in a thrift store and
 handpainted them - all of them!  
Aren't they adorable???
Where she found ice skates is beyond me.  We're not exactly a hotbed of figure skating here in Central California.  

She painted snowmen all over these skates for the Singing Bee.  We BOTH loved them.  
Now you know why her name is so well-deserved!

Now the Singing Bee noticed how much I loved these little placards when we spent the day shopping together.  I almost bought them for myself, but I didn't and she went back and got these for me.
The window was cleaned earlier this year - honestly! With so little rain, how did it get so dirty???
Aren't they cute?
I can use them for placecards or I can use them on a buffet or I can just write a message for you.

Thank you so much More Creative Bee and Singing Bee!

And thank you so much for buzzing in!
Want to know what I'm making for dinner tonight?
Found this great magazine....
and we're trying Barbecue Chili.  Beans, ground beef, and a homemade barbecue sauce all in the crockpot.  Oh yes - a bacon garnish - what's not to love?
