On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me:
I made these cookies for the lovely Shannon who won my 1000 facebook friend giveaway. She is so sweet and when I asked her what she wanted me to cookie for her she told me I could do anything I wanted, but she’d like them to be Christmasy. I’d been thinking about doing 12 days of Christmas cookies for a while so this was a perfect opportunity since she won a dozen cookies. Coincidence? I think not! I had so much fun painting these. Until I did these cookies I never realized it’s almost half birds and half people.
I’m not exactly Shannon’s true love, but I did send her:
- 12 drummers drumming
- 11 pipers piping
- 10 lords a leaping
- 9 ladies dancing
- 8 maids a milking
- 7 swans a swimming
- 6 geese a laying
- 5 GOLDEN RINGS!
- 4 calling birds
- 3 french hens
- 2 turtle doves
- and a partridge in a pear tree!
I hope you are thoroughly enjoying this beautiful season and taking the time to really celebrate Christmas. I guess what I’m saying is take time to smell the
roses poinsettias, notice if the birds are partidges or french hens, and appreciate the people around you whether they are maids, drummers, or leaping lords. There is a special spirit this time of year, don’t forget to stop and feel it!
