Puppy fun at Pinkmas

Sydney and Lola have fun
The dogs always enjoy opening their gifts. Each dog has taught the next dog how to do this. Lola , the Yorkie, was my Mom in law's dog and we have her now that his mom has passed away. Lola is into it the most as she really loves to play with toys. Sydney-Marie just likes to tear the tissue up not really thrilled with toys as much

 The rose topped Herend box was a gift from "my girls" my furbabies
 Always love swans these two are new this year on tea tray
 My retro pink Santa guards the candy dishes
Special cookies for special friends Pink Nutcrackers and doves and pointe shoes all made by SugarPlums Bakery in Marietta

Pinkmas goes by so quickly! Already so many lovely memories. I am joining in

Time spent with friends and family is the best of all

Silver for Pinkmas

Santa  brought me a silver tea caddy with roses on it and garlands. It is an addition to my small but much loved tea caddy collection. Most of my tea caddies are old silver but I do have a few porcelain ones as well. How sweet of Santa to recall that I collect these and I use them as well.This one is my first square on made in Germany in 1890's.
Hope your Pinkmas was wonderful. Hope you had friends and family around and shared some laughs.

This is the big dream to have a pink top that looks like it has glitter snow on it.

Oh  how fun it is to dream in pink!!! What eye candy! Pink makes my spirit bright! Pink cures my "blues" and sparks my creativity.

Pink Buche de Noel

 I actually squealed when I saw this cake! Sooooo Moi

Baking for Pinkmas!

I am going to try to make a buche de Noel cake I did make them in the past but this one that I saw on Bakingdom.com has captured my heart. So pink, so festive, so snowy!! I have to give it a shot. I even want to try the marzipan mushrooms and holly leaves. 
I think I will either do a white sponge cake or a lemon flavored sponge with lemon curd filling perhaps or white with  the lemon curd filling. My desserts have to fit into my Pinkmas theme . If Marie Antoinette were here today she would want to eat this cake.
Does anyone have a tips to share on making this type of cake?

Swans for Pinkmas

Swan Love
If you have been reading my blog for any length of time you know of my swan obsession. I am always on the lookout for cute swan items whatever they may be.
I found all these treasures on Ebay . The glittery swan ornament I found in a local shop. It is a swan sleigh--oh how I wish I could make it people sized and sit it in and dash through the snow( if we had snow) it would be so fun!!
Two of my trees have swans on them the big tree is mainly swans, some ballet items, and a few pretty ornaments, It also has the swan topper on it. And my smaller white Marie Antoinette tree in master bedroom has these swan sleighs and little white swans on it. It just makes the holiday even more fun to scout out swan things I can use each year.

In this hectic holiday madness seek some peace for yourself. Stop and breathe, look around and enjoy the simple things, have you really looked at your tree or your neighbor's twinkie lights? Enjoy them. Sometimes we rush around and miss what we should be enjoying. 
Swans always bring me to a peaceful state, looking at them, or feeding them or just enjoying a photo helps me find my serenity. 
I hope you have something that helps you too.
Happy peaceful holiday season to you dear blog reader My wish for you is peace.

Reindeer games...

Look who has made a stop at my home!These elegant reindeer have decided they want to stay a bit and pull the antique child's sleigh I have in the front hall. 
Since they love their pink ribbon and glittery snow they are a perfect addition..
I have never seen such elegant reindeer --these are light maybe made of papier mache with pieces of thin curled birch and other woods. I love them.

Something new for the tree

An ornament I made for tree this year of lace and ribbons, leftover silk from draperies. Always fun to add new holiday decor to freshen things up
I hate to sew so I usually make things using glue.
This tussie went on my biggest tree the swan tree.
