Christmas Joy

Susan Branch has always been a favorite of mine.
    



The other day while rummaging through my library, I came across her wonderful Christmas book called,  “Christmas Joy”.
    
122220100007

I began flipping through it.
   



There were wonderful Christmas cookie recipes.
   




I enjoy her wonderful handwriting;
          



And her whimsical watercolor artwork.
  



This book is also filled with wonderful Christmas ideas.
 


(click to enlarge)
   

Such as ideas for stocking stuffers or how to present your homemade goodies as gifts.
    


Her ideas are timeless, classic, and practical.
  



   
Just click here for some of her wonderful Christmas freebies.
     


    
And if you click here now, you can check out her online recipe for “Christmas Coffee Cake.”

It’s hard for me to believe we are only a couple days away from Christmas.


Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday full of many moments of bliss.

Good Morning Sweetie...
A beautiful share, and what a wonderful book to treasure. I love the pictures and some of the ideas are so wonderful. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous morning.

I too am wondering where this year has gone. It has moved quickly, and 2011 is right upon us.

I pray that God will richly bless you and your family sweet friend this wonderful CHRISTmas holiday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

What a pretty book and has given me some ideas for gift wrapping my homemade jams and chutneys. Thanks Mo. I`ve also had a look at her shop and absolutely LOVE the deer head candleholders in her Vintage Section - not everyone`s cup of tea but very SCOTTISH!
I hope you have a fabulous Christmas Mo - can`t wait to see what graphics you`re going to come up with for post-Christmas!
