Sorry I didn't post this yesterday my sister and I drove to Cobleskill
to meet my niece for lunch.
We went to the most charming place
1850's farmhouse turned  into a country shop & bistro.
   Three floors of themed rooms filled with a some of my most favorite things
Vera Bradley
Homemade truffles
New York State wines
and a wonderful array of jewelery and gifts
the restaurant was like a scene from a movie
 a roaring fire, beautifully decorated Christmas tree
all looking out on a little white gazebo with the lightest dusting of snow.
I bought the cutest little ornament
 going to work on making a few of my own this week....

  14. Karen, these boxes are adorable!!! I love both variations.. and even more since they'll contain fuzzy socks! :o) What an amazing cut and so beautifully detailed by you. :o) You always make me long for the ability to use SVG cuts! Lovely work, as always! (I was bogged down with a deadline all week, so I deeply apologize for being insanely behind. I am catching up with all my bloggie friends over the next couple of days. It breaks my sappy heart when I'm forced to get so behind.)

    Hugs and blessings!
