Today's cookie exchange was a great success...12 attendees=12 different types of cookies! I made lunch for everyone, too...Jamie Oliver's Chickpea and Leek Soup. No pictures...it's not very pretty, but DELICIOUS! I did however take advantage of the opportunity to wear this cute vintage Santa apron. A good thing about having the cookie exchange this early is that I was motivated to do some Christmas decorating. I put the Spode Christmas Tree china on display in the china cabinet (and served lunch on it :-)
This cute little cup and saucer is from my childhood.
And I just found four of these last week at the thrift store for $1.00 each!
We have five of these fabulous retro glasses from the 50s. Mike thinks they belonged to his aunt. Don't they just make you want to have a hi-ball?
