She made these:
They totally look like peaches...but they're actually cake.
I probably will never make them. I just think they're really pretty...and clever.
Speaking of Martha...
I enjoy watching her mannerisms. She's so controlling and doesn't care if she makes her guests feel like children. If it weren't rude, I'd admire it.
Speaking of someone who likes cleanliness...
If you need a last minute Christmas present for that hard-to-shop-for clean freak in your life, buy them this: (the clouds part, the heavens open, angelic choirs join in chorus...) the Libman Freedom Spray Mop.
I got this mop a month or so back and it's super-fantastic! If I were a broom, I'd marry it.
It's also pretty inexpensive. Only $20 at Target and the cleaner costs pennies. I just use vinegar and water, which does an excellent job of cleaning most anything. And it's quick. I don't have to move every piece of kitchen furniture to do it and I mop a lot more often.
And if you're one of those people who think, "That is a stupid present. Who would want that for Christmas?!" Well, then, you're right. Don't get this for someone as a Christmas present. It'd be right up there with getting deodorant in your stocking. "Merry Christmas, you stink!"..."Merry Christmas, my feet stick to your floor!"
But it is an awesome mop. Just so you know.
In other news, the snow finally came. With vengeance. I think I'm not going anywhere for a few days. (Why do people like taking picture of the snow at their houses?)
I'm good now. But like I said, won't be going anywhere for a few days.
Which leads me to the rest of this post. Stuff I saved for a rainy (snowy) day.
This is my Christmas tree. In bokeh. Blur is beautiful.
Aren't you jealous of my lusciously full lashes? (Yeah, they're there. Look harder.)
"What a brother. What a sweet, wonderful guy..."
And lastly for your tour through my rainy day post:
