My sweet friend in Mississippi, Trish, of Notes of Sincerity, sent me this darling little house ornament. 
I love her choice of little bity snow people fabric. 
The back...
thank you, Miss Trish!

My sister, LeAnn, sent another Christmas pillow - my heart smiled when I got this one. 
It is still sitting on my bench in the hallway.
I have to get out my little snowman pot that my friend, Tammy, made me at least 15 years ago!

This popcorn has a KICK to it.
I brought it to my Open Sew class at the high school tonight. 
SNAP - it was gone just like that! 

I love my snowman pot....

Here's the recipe:
2 tsp. vegetable oil
1 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
Pop the popcorn on the stove top.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Line 2 baking sheets with foil & spray with cooking oil.
Cook on stovetop 3 cups sugar, 3 cubes (1 1/2 cups) butter and 3/4 cup light corn syrup.  Cook until sugar is dissolved and mixture almost turns a very light brown.  Turn off heat and add 3 tsp. course salt and 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper.
Pour over popped popcorn in very large bowl.  Stir until coated and divide on to your baking sheets. 
Bake @ 250 degrees, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
You can also add some roasted nuts!


  1. Snowmen! My type of decoration for Christmas and into the long January month. Love your Snowmen pot (with popcorn) and the really adorable tree ornament and pillow. Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I do exactly the same thing - leave those adorable little snowmen out during January! Thanks for the nice comments1

  2. I love the snowman pot! What a great idea. The popcorn sounds delish. Isn't everything Trish makes a delight? And I have a special fondness for little houses so I love this darling ornament! At first glance I thought the pillow from your sister was just a snowflake, but then I noticed the snowmen in the design. Adorable!

    1. Yes - Trish is such a sweetie - and so talented! I thought the same thing about my "sister" pillow! thanks, Kathy

    1. Yep - LOVE snowmen.....I just wish it would snow here in Montana!

  4. I said, "Awwww" three times. Cute cute presents! I'll have to try that popcorn. I like m&ms in mine. Put them in when you've just popped it & then by the time you get to the bottom, they are warm, but not melted. yum.

    1. Mmmmm - M&M's are fabulous in anything! I'll have to try it in this popcorn. Thanks!

  5. Darling ornament and pillow!! Hope your week is going wonderfully! xo Heather
