“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

O Christmas tree

It was cold and rainy all day, absolutely amazing weather!
It really puts me in a happy Christmas-y mood!
So..I wanted to show you our little tree..

We made these cinnamon ornaments, they smelled so good when they were in the oven!

If you want to make some, the recipe is here.
Since Helena was ill all week with a stomach bug, I didn't get to create what I planned for this week's Guerrilla art..but I did make this,

and written on the back is this quote..“Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it”
This is where I left 'the goods',lol, that mailbox is going to smell yummy:)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Thank you!


  1. The bird in the mailbox? That is going to make someone's day special! Great things you are doing.


  2. Yay!..These are all so lovely and dazzling..gorgeous creations!

  3. Oh Good Morning Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share and a beautiful bird. I bet your mailman/mailwoman is going to be so happy. What a beautiful gift of love.
