Love In A Jar

For Christmas this year I received "Some Love" in a jar.
The first one is lemon butter. It is an old family recipe that my daughter Maria has lovingly continued the tradition of making for the holiday's. She has shared the recipe and a tutorial for making it on her blog over at RAINY DAY FARM. Yummy stuff I tell ya. Slathered on french toast on Christmas morning...ummmmmmmmmmmmm, nothing better. Thanks Maria. Take a minute to browse her blog, she is amazing. Ahhh, smooth, sweet and lemony.



The next "Love in A Jar" came from my DIL Randy. She is really a creative and talented gal, (although she doesn't think so but she continues to amaze me with her talents) You can check out what she drew for her mom for Christmas at her blog "Hall's and Critters". Butterscotch Snaps cookie ingredients just waiting for some eggs, veg. oil and vanilla to turn into some magic. Check out the cute fabric and ribbon, she is a girl after my own heart, I love black and white. The whole thing looks almost too good to open and use, I just want to put it on a shelf for a display or something.
















See what I mean, it's sooooooo cute.

Not sure how I found you, but so glad I did! Among other things, we share the same name and "beliefs".

P.S. Can't wait to try the lemon butter...thanks!

I can't wait to make some of that lemon butter and share with my friends that were out of town for Christmas.
