I'm here today to present to you Miss Oona's handmade sugar plum fairy stocking, made by Mama, of course. Okay, there's no fireplace mantel to hang this stocking, but we'll find a place for it, I'm sure. It's made out of red corduroy with blue corduroy lining. I got to use some of my stash of fun vintage embroidery ribbon. Oona seemed to really dig the owl's. I let the owner try it out, and she seemed to approve. In fact, it might have even gotten a few "ooo's" out of the girl. It's so nice to have your work appreciated. The size of the stocking was perhaps a bit ambitious. Santa's going to have to work overtime to fill this one. Mommy tried it on and an adult foot fits comfortably in it, with room to spare.
I also wanted to make your mouth water by showing you this peppermint bark I made earlier today. It's still hardening in the fridge, but from what I licked off the spatula, I think it will be delicious. You can find the recipe over at Orangette. I only did two layers because I didn't have enough chocolate.
Now I'm going to relax a little and watch the old b&w version of "Miracle on 34th St" with the babe. Hope you're keeping it jolly in your neck of the woods!
