Countdown to Christmas ... 12/15/2016

Picture this ...

We have a fire in the woodstove, it's really cold outside (our temps are supposed to go down into the teens tonight)  but we're warm and toasty inside and even have the front door of the house open.  The lights are out in the house and the Christmas tree is all lite up ... I love this! This screams Christmas to me!

And if that wasn't enough ....


I received a package from Annabel over at The Bluebirds are Nesting in the mail today.  Just look at those cute little crochet pins!!!!  I squilled with delight over those!  And aren't those stickers just perfect for this time of the year???  

That leaves the wrapped package ... there was no note or anything that said 'wait until Christmas' like last year (it was unbelievably hard to wait last year, but I did) so ... what do you think?  Can I go ahead and open it?????

(Thank you Annabel, I love your gifts!)

But wait, I'm not through ...

I got a notice from paypal today that I had received a generous donation from Brush Creek Quilt Company!  I squilled again!  Oh my, what a day filled with Christmas cheer for ME!!!!!  Thank you Brush Creek Quilt Company, my Christmas joy is overflowing!  

I've been working pretty hard today putting the finishing touches on our church's ladies Christmas party tomorrow night here at my house, so a nice quiet cozy comfortable evening like I described above is perfect for helping me rest and relax.   Can I just say it again ... these kind of evenings just scream Christmas to me!

What kind of Christmas cheer day did you have?

A Working Pantry is more than just about food! It's about household items needed to keep my home running smoothly readily available when needed.  It's about keeping a gift trunk so that I'm ready for any gift giving occasion.  It's about a lifestyle.  It's about keeping my home and looking well to the ways of my household and it's about doing it all as frugally as possible.  I hope you enjoy what you read here.
