Friday Faves

* Quote of the Week: "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."  ~ Charles Dickens

* Something to Buy: scattered stars pendant 

* Some Things to Make: glitter votives

* A Song: my favorite version of Go Tell It On the Mountain

* Images of the Week: i.anton

* Learn Something: What some people do just to eat.

* Great Read: Sweet Paul

* Terrific Tip: Velcro dots

* Anticipating: Our family's annual Christmas visit to Silver Dollar City.  

* PINspiration: The Holly-Daze by Julie Ebersole

  * Something to Remember: I want always to remember the shaking, quaking conviction I felt when we received our Christmas card from Anita, the child we sponsor through Watoto.  The highlight of 2013 for her?  "God has given me clothes."  We can give more.  We must give more.  We have so much.

* In Case You Missed It: The Junior Mint Christmas

* Some Things I Love: our tree full of Swarovski ornaments, mercury glass, old creamware platters and serving pieces, Christmas cards in the mail, unexpected snow days, receiving a gift box full of books from Amazon, flashmobs, Pinterest, friends who share recipes, Christmas music...

Another great list. Like the candy story. Yum. So much fun. What did you get when you lived on the island. I think it would be fun to improvise. Check out my granddaughter's list.
