Ugly Christmas Sweater Party 2012

Some of you have emailed asking if we had our annual ugly christmas sweater party again this year... here is my entry for 2012.  This year, we added something new - a christmas fascinator.

Our Prince

And of course I must share a couple of pictures of the love of my life ''our Prince'' (also known as Rémi).  In my absence from this blog, I've been busy enjoying grandmotherhood.  This cute little man turned 8 months last week.  He lives 6 hours away but I've managed to see him in person at least once a month since he was born last May.  Unfortunately, I won't be seeing him in January but plans are in the works for a visit in February.  Skype is the next best thing to being in person.  But I can't kiss those chubby cheeks on skype.

He is such a content, happy, easy-going baby xxo

Spoon Oil (beeswax polish)

I took a longer than planned break from this here blog.  Can't promise how frequent you'll see me here but here I am.

In the past I've used store-bought beeswax polish for my wooden bowls, spoons, some antique pieces of furniture, etc.  But I can't seem to find the stuff too easily anymore.  Hey, it's very rural in these parts, selections are not too plentiful at times.

After a quick search on the internet I found this recipe and the rest, as they say, is history.  I am very happy with the results.
