Oh no, the countdown to Christmas has reached the teens and I still don't remotely have my shopping done. I'm normally a very organized person when it comes to these things. Not this year. I still have no list from my oldest, or my husband. I finally started one for myself last night.
What I do have is some good news to share. I won a giveaway!!! I'm getting a whole package of wonderful goodies from Brookhollow Lane. She has a website that I love to look at. You should really check out her dining room redo. You can visit her at http://brookhollowlane.blogspot.com/ Not since Enos from 'The Dukes of Hazzard' came to our house and installed a water filtration system have I won a prize. That was at least 20 years ago.
I also wanted to share a picture of what I made this weekend. It's a Buche de Noel. It's all edible--milk chocolate leaves, meringue mushrooms, white chocolate branches. A nearby Chamber of Commerce used it as a presentation piece to the lodge that hosted their Christmas dance. The picture shows it before I added the surrounding "dirt", so it looks kind of bare.
