Remember when I told you Paige took all of Richard's shirts home with her to make a quilt? Well I got it for Christmas. It is big enough to cover my lap as I sit in my chair. The wonderful thing is before she wrapped it she sprayed it with his cologne ( After he died, I had given each of the girls a small bottle of it so they could always know what Papa's smell was like)Talk about memories and tears. This definitely brought it on for all of us. I love that she made it herself. She is very talented. The stitching is beautiful. Plus, all of the shirts she selected are the ones we bought for him when we made our trip to Disney World in 2011 (so we all wore matching colors). That gives the quilt some extra meaning. This will be a cherished piece for me. And when I am gone she can have it back!
I also discovered another new wine in the month of December. I think I must like Moscato because these are the ones I am
liking the most. This one is Marco Negri Moscato d'Asti. It is very smooth. And I think I could drink the entire bottle (small, of course) by myself. Have you ever tried this wine?
Next on my list of favorites is my blanket. It is a
Newport Velvet Berber full size blanket. I have lived under this thing since Christmas day. We are having cold, cold, cold temperatures here in Kansas and I don't like to turn my furnace above 68-70 so this is
keeping me toasty warm. It has a red/black Buffalo print on one side and the other side is a white Berber. I could stay under this for the rest of my life. And this little fellow here came for a day of dog-sitting and he liked it too. His name is Coco and he was a Christmas present to one of my 'adopted' granddaughters. Isn't he precious? And what about that glorious blanket??
Now, last month I told you about my favorite stainless steel tumbler. Remember? For
Christmas I got a stainless steel wine glass. This can't be beat for keeping my wine cold. I like to sip my wine. But I don't like warm wine. So this is perfect! Not as pretty as the glass wine glasses I also got for Christmas. But a whole lot more practical for snuggling under my blanket and sipping wine while I read off my new Kindle. My Nook Color, which I got for Christmas years ago, is about to bite the bullet. And Barnes and Nobel no longer supports the model I have. So I got a Kindle Fire with some of my Christmas money. And when you are a Amazon Prime member you can do a lot of reading from their Prime Reading or from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library. I've also found something about Audible books but I haven't checked into it yet. Maybe they are cheaper too. I am a new Amazon Prime member. If you have any tips or tricks for me I'd love to hear them.
I have discovered a couple of new K-cups for my Keurig to share with you. I am loving Gloria Jean's Butter Toffee coffee and Kahlua light roast coffee. Both of these with French Vanilla cream make for a delightful cup of Joe. Do you have a favorite flavor.
This brings me to the end of my favorites for December. What did you dig on in December?
