Wishing You All A Very Merry Holiday

It's been very busy these last few weeks for me.  One of the projects I have been working on is this little cottage...all done in paper.  Rose Cottage (from one of my favorite movies, The Holiday) was done in memory of our Kelly, who loved the look of an English cottage garden--which we tried to replicate at her home these last few years.  The garden was actually in full bloom when she came home in May and I would like to think it was a part of her final happiness.

I've been a little behind in posting recipes, but I promise to catch up and tomorrow I will announce the lucky winner of the Holiday Give-Away.  I do wish you all the merriest of season with your family and loved ones and keep in mind to make every moment count.  Memories are forever and I have many to look back on while missing our precious daughter this holiday.  Love to all, Susan


  1. I have been thinking of you so much these past days. I am grateful that your sweet Kelly left you the gift of not only memories, but also a wonderful grandchild.

    Susan, your creation is lovely.

    All joys and peaceful thoughts to you,

  3. Merry Christmas to you as well Susan.Your cottage is beautiful in so many ways.

  4. Oh my, you amaze me! What a lovely tribute to your daughter, your Rose Cottage is such a beautiful work of art. Your grandson is surely a constantly giving memory of will forever see her in him. Thank you so much for giving and sharing so much with us!

    Wishing you a wonderful Christmas Susan and many blessings in the coming New Year.

  5. The little Rose Cottage is beautiful---your talent and creativity never cease to amaze me!! Kelly would adore this little cottage and it is truly a wonderful tribute to her. I loved her home and the flower beds that you helped her with. I'm missing Kelly too, but like you said, "Memories are forever." Love, Barb
