Hello! I am so underwhelmed with the headlines today that I turned to my rosemary plant for comfort.
I brought my rosemary in from the garden at the end of summer and it was a wild looking plant. So, I gave it a trim for Christmas and shaped it up like a Christmas tree. It was really spread out so, I gathered it up and tied it in the middle with a green thread and it came together nicely.
With the trimmed pieces, I wired together a rosemary wreath for the kitchen. Rosemary smells amazing and it a nice addition to the kitchen for Christmas. I took two stems about 4-inches each and wired them at intervals around an embroidery hoop with a 22 gauge floral craft wire.
Here is the finished wreath.
I bought a great cookbook for a relative for Christmas and before I wrapped it, what did I do with it? I cooked a recipe from it! I will share that tomorrow. The recipe I made was cream cheese cookies. Don't they sound good?
My teacup is by Gracie Teaware.
It is such a pretty pattern. Crafting and cooking may be the only way I get through this holiday season. How are you doing?
