It’s the fastest month on the calendar or it seems that way. There is so much to do with decorating, shopping, wrapping, baking, etc. I am way behind with only ten days to go, so this post is brief. The Christmas cards are in the mail and holiday shopping nearly finished. The tree stands bare but is on today’s ‘to do list’ and should be lit and adorned with ornaments by nightfall. At least that is the plan. The shiny, new cookie tins are waiting to be filled but not one cookie has been baked yet. To my nieces and nephews, do not fret as you know Aunt Joan always comes through with the goodies! So guess what I’m doing the next few days. I cannot disappoint and must get to the kitchen. Now, come see how I made these glittery Christmas bell cookies.
