Smiling: What Did It This Week!

I realize this is a stressful time of year, so thank goodness, there are many things around me which put a smile on my face!

Our trees are finally on fire and gorgeous!

I smile each day when I pull into the drive way after work.

Once inside, my Santa collection from around the world always makes me smile.

Ireland and Scotland
are new to the family!

It's also time to pull out my oldest cookbook and make some holiday cookies!  The recipes are still my favorites!

Finally, I am smiling because this is our first year with my re-designed dining room.  So excited to serve Christmas dinner here!

What makes you smile this Friday the 13th??

Whatever it is...enjoy and have a good one!


  1. I have the Santa Collection from around the world also, love those santas.

  2. My Christmas holiday and seeing my brother next week - that's what's making me smile. Oh and your Santa collection! Have a lovely weekend, Pam.

  3. Love your little statues and gorgeous table setting.

    I never comment on blogs though I follow yours daily....but I had to tell you that your cookbook is the same one I have. I have a first edition. My MIL turned me onto it and I was lucky enough to snag one at a used book store many years ago. I love me some Betty Crocker!

  5. It's my birthday this Friday the 13th. And all the birthday wishes, especially from my grandbabies, makes me smile.

  6. I love the color of your dining room!
