If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too? I have been to quite a few foreign countries Holland, Belgium, Germany, France, England, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland. My grandmother took my sister and I to Europe in case she wasn’t around when my sister graduated from high school. We got to spend about week in each place. It was really neat. We traveled by train and bus mostly. It is something I will never forget. I am thankful for loving grandmother who took us to see architecture and experience the food and visit someone in Belgium that my father had employed here in America. When we were in Portugal we visited the fellow who had been exchange student where we went to high school.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? We spent Christmas with my daughter/husband and granddaughter. My granddaughter is 6 now and we all enjoyed one another company. Us girls made spritz cookies in the kitchen together. I didn’t have hard time with Christmas this year. Time spent went too fast. My daughter announced she was going to make this a tradition for next year. That pleased me and put a smile on my face.
I am getting ready for Christmas and have run out cookie tins. I just didn’t find that perfect one to give to someone. However, I saw something on Pinterest recently that came to mind when I was trying to come up with a gift wrapping idea for some cookie treats I wanted to give to someone.
I had a #10 can, I sprayed painted it with a dark red gloss paint I had purchased at Walmart. Then I found a box and put my can in there and sprayed it on the outside only. Today when I came from work I found some white gloss acrylic paint. I stuck a old tooth brush down into the bottom , pull it out and moved the bristle back and forth to give the can the look of snow flakes on the can. I used some wire and made handle.
I filled the can with three layers of different cookies.. The last bunch were peanut butter blossoms and here and there I would throw in some Christmas kisses to give it some color. I tied a ribbon to one side of the handles, I think I will make a smaller mittlen and hang it down to as a gift card to the person I am going to give it too. Here is how it turned out:
