Mary from Raleigh, North Carolina, is the winner of the JOY Pillow Cover Giveaway for Christmas. Congratulations, Mary! The cover was mailed to her yesterday, so it’ll be there soon.
I’d love to know more about each of you who entered. Mary was very kind to share a little about herself. She is 72 years old and has two teenage grandsons. She says she loves being with them. Isn’t that the way it is with grandparents and grandkids – even grown ones?
Mary enjoys sewing and reading and is learning to quilt. Way to go, Mary! I hope to have eyes for sewing and reading when I’m 72, as well as learning new things. I hope Mary likes her new pillow cover.
In yesterday’s post about Our Christmas Story Tablescape, you saw one of the Christmas tins we like to use.
Spunky Daughter reminded me yesterday that I need to make my Southern Style Pecan Fudge that we keep in that tin each Christmas.
Hmm…how could I have forgotten that?
Quite possibly I’m too busy keeping us stocked in our favorite pecans, along with Sweet and Salty Holiday Treats. It’s time to get the fat pants ready!
I have collections of tins in other areas of the kitchen, too. This is how our holiday snacks are accessible to everyone in containers with lids for preserving freshness.
The large tin holds parched whole peanuts – a year-round favorite. The red Christmas tin is filled with what we call trash mix, aka Chex™ mix. And, of course, Santa is full of cookies.
On the table beneath the French Country Plate Shelf are two tins I found at a thrift store last year. (Ahem…how I wish it were true that Christmas calories don’t count. Hence, the fat pants.)
The Santa tartan plaid tin is my favorite, but I just realized I can’t tell you what’s in it until tomorrow. But, this tea towel might be a slight hint. 😉
Well, it’s sort of a hint, but not exactly. You know I’m always changing recipes! Ha!
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s easy recipe post.
Do you use Christmas tins for the snacks you serve? Are they full, or are you still baking to fill them?
