Brass Bowl, Toffee Bars and Christmas Tree Hat (and requested recipe)

25 Nov

1   Our friends last night brought these beautiful flowers and I’ve put them in a brass bowl that was my Mum’s. I’ve polished it up and love how it all looks.

2   I was inspired by LouAnn‘s blog this morning and this afternoon have made her Toffee Bars. As she says, “Seriously easy and seriously delicious!” Seriously wicked too and all the better for that! Thank you, LouAnn.

Delicious Toffee Bars

3    I’ve finished knitting a Christmas Tree Hat for Grand-Baby T. She just loves wearing hats! Now I just have to decorate it.  I’ll show you the decorated hat as soon as it is finished and T in her new hat as soon as I can.

P.S.  I’ve put up the recipe for the Smoked Salmon and Prawn Stacks on my Recipe Pages as requested. Do let me know if you try it.

    Can’t decide if I like the flowers or the Toffee Bars better.
    Oh…guess I can like both equally.

    But the grandbaby is the best!

    Hold on to your friends, especially those that come welding flowers such as those. The purple, the white and green stems & buds in the brass bowl on the maple table top – a perfecto arrangement.
