Simply...the best

Holiday Cookies





The first cookies of the season! These were baked (with a little help) and decorated (no help at all) by my 6 year old daughter. Gingerbread cookies are her absolute favorite and the first batches are all hers .
I have to confess that I am enormously far behind in my holiday baking. Normally I start at the end of Oct. (making up doughs and freezing them) because I make up between 30 and 40 baskets every year, between our family in California, and Texas, neighbors, and my husbands employees. This year we are a little backwards.
This little pink gingerbread-girl cookie was made especially for Me! (in our favorite color of course!!!) I'm a lucky girl.

The Holiday Catalogue is finally done, and I will be at the post office tonight
mailing the first batch! They are in limited supply so if anyone
would like one, they are $2.00 which is discounted off your first order.
please contact me at contact@staffordshiregarden.com if you would like one.

More peeks


Here is another snippit of the offerings I will have for the show, and also for the 2007 holiday season.

I am also putting together a small catalogue brochure for the different holiday series this year.

This one is a beveled ornament 2x2" and is $16.95. The back is all vintage papers and sheet music from the 1920s with sterling German glass glitter (my absolute favorite thing this time of year!) .

Holiday Sneek Peek


A sneek peek at the Holiday offerings I am holding back until next week's
Ryle show. I am so excited!

There will be several new series of collage art charms for the 2007

Holiday season. I will try and post a little snipit every day before the show.
