Christmas Cookies

DSC_3886

 We're still enjoying lots of Christmas Cookies 
here at The Gazebo House.
These darling little *Brownie Bites* came from
my local grocery store,  Giant Eagle & were delicious...
They would be easy to make with a
boxed brownie mix & your mini muffin pan!

 If you look closely, you can see that the sprinkles are 
in the shape of candy canes.

 It is tea time now & I'm enjoying
some of the cookies that I made...
Toffee Studded Snickerdoodles!

The recipe is from Hershey's website here:

My fun little snowman teapot 
sits nearby my apothecary jar.
His hat is the cover to the sugar bowl
which is his head,
his middle section is the creamer &
the lower portion forms the 
actual teapot base.

Isn't he cute?
You did know that I collect teapots, right?
You can see part of my collection HERE & HERE.

 This pretty machine embroidered
 hemstitched linen hand towel is doing
double duty as a napkin today.

 After doing the embroidery design,
I hand stitched two pieces of a narrow, 
satin ribbon at the back of
each side of the towel, 
then threaded it from both sides,
through the openings in the hem stitching.
Tie a bow at the middle & you're done!

 Another big, sparkley bow &
some glittery snowflakes add
to the festive look.
