Recap

Found eight boxes of vintage ornaments at a thrift shop the week before Christmas.


Made cinnamon rolls not once.  But twice.


Ate more chocolate that one person should be allowed.

Sugar cookies are a must.

As are pizelles.

Cut into a stash of fabric that I'd been keeping for far too long.

Started binding this quilt.  Can you see the owl quilting?


And got emotional more than once looking at all the handmade ornaments on the tree.  And even giggled that so many of them contain gold noodles.

My DD started school this year and we now have our first golden noodle ornament. I would've never guessed how excited I would be about that. :-)

I got my first gold noodle ornament this year! Love it to pieces. Those are the best gifts of all. Happy holidays, Dana!

what a great find in those ornaments--totally jealous!
I followed a lady all over the thrift store before Christmas--hoping she'd put the vintage ornaments she had in her arms, down--but alas, she did not. :(

glad your Christmas went well.
