Christmas Baking and Decor

     Hello everyone,

I hope you had a lovely
weekend. We had a quiet
   one as we have been restricted
a bit more because of a few
   cases of covid 19 that seemed to
   be our first community spread.
        Happy yo say we had no new cases
for the last couple of days.

    Anyway, today was a good day
to do a little  baking.

The Irish Soda bread didn't
make it to Christmas as 
we  tore into it when it
was hot out of the oven!

My family prefer sticky date 
pudding over plum pudding
so I made a small one today
but I will make a couple
mre later this week
and freeze them for

This old rusty oil lamp
was a yard sale treasure
a few years ago.

I changed my plaids from red to
blue this time.

We have had our tree up
in the dining area of our
kitchen for a week or so
now and I do love it !

I thought about putting it
in our bedroom this year
but in the end I thought we
would enjoy it more in the
kitchen ....makes baking
days so pretty.

I must take some  photos of my
red and white transferware dishes
in the kitchen shortly to share
with you! 

Thank you for your visit and to
all who leave nice comments
for me.

Take care,

Good morning Carolyn, once again your beautiful pictures are lighting up lives. The covid19 cases are increasing in our area and I suspect we will endure a long and dark winter in a new way. Thank you for making things brighter with your postings. Kind regards, Laura

Oh I'm jealous! I can't eat gluten (thus no yummy breads) but my hubby absolutely LOVE Irish Soda bread! Yours looks wonderful. I want to make a fruit cake this year as I love it, but no one else does... more for me right? And your tree is absolutely gorgeous! Love the all white and lights. I always so enjoy your photos!
