 At least they are the kind of reruns that nobody objects to.  Tessie is almost jumping up and down with happiness...

But... It's hard to eat when you are jumping up and down... She just told me, "It is dangerous to jump up and down whilst eating chocolate or nuts.  One might just choke on the pieces!"

So... There she stands.  Gobbling up the nut bars as fast as she can chew!

I won't bore you with the recipes. If you want to make either of them, they are here.

I think that it is safe to show you this.  I am working on a pincushion for someone... I am going to leave it unglued.  I would usually glue the stuffing and fabric inside the cup, but it is an antique... And I am not sure if the recipient will want a permanent pincushion or a cute little cup to drink from. I am also not sure if this is the cup that the person liked the best or not.

I bought two at the time.  Both about the same vintage.  The other one is just a tad larger and has a hand painted pink rose  and  the lettering "A Gift" on the side in gold.  I imagine that both were fairings or something of the sort.  Souvenir cups.

Anyway, I still have to make spritz cookies.  Back to the grindstone that is Christmas.

See you tomorrow.
