Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind, and dance upon the mountains like a flame!
~W.B. Yeats

Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...

~W.B. Yeats

Christmas is around the corner

Yes, its true...Christmas is around the corner. I've been busy getting my gifts ready and my Christmas ornament ready for the exchange. I would just love to show them all to you, but WHAT IF someone who is going to receive one of my gifts looked at my blog and saw the something I made, then it wouldn't be a surprise anymore. And I love surprises... And speaking surprises!... You know my mother died in July :( Well, each Friday I got over to her house and visit with my stepdad and look through some of the many things she's left. One day I was cleaning out the corner area near her chair. She loved to collect tins. Oh my gosh have I already found so many tins... So anyway, I'm looking through the bookcase and I come across this tin.
Oh yummy. I love toffee. Unfortunately though, many of the tins I found were empty. So I figured this one was too. Until I picked it up...It was NOT EMPTY. Look what was inside. LOL!!!!!!!! I laughed and was so excited. WHAT A TREASURE BOX!!!!!

Enjoy your new treats! Makes me wish my mom stitched...
