-Virginia Meseraull, taken from the Dec. issue of Reminisce magazine. The story includes a photo of the two teens, she in a lovely ballgown holding her two gifts, one appears to be perfumed lotion of some sort. Is that not the sweetest thing?
I just love my natural cornstarch dusting powder that I make for myself so what better gift could I make for friends and family? And hey gals, it is soooo easy!
Done! Now isn't that the cutest thing ever? The box cost a dollar, you may already have one or just go super simple with a little bag and bow as I have suggested. The box of cornstarch cost 79 cents, the oil I ordered for my everyday uses.
We have found the old fashioned storage bags from the Dollar General or the 99 cent stores to be invaluable for an economical storage solution. Love'em.
Here are some pics from the last month or so I thought were neat.

Right now I'm looking out the window watching a blustery day out..My husband is burning a brush pile. Our two youngest daughters, 20 and 23 are readying for an English Folk-dance winter ball. Good clean fun with beautiful hand-sewn modest ballgowns. I sure wish I would have had nice clean things like that to attend when I was their age.
If you get the druthers you may enjoy my last blog, The Faces of Advent Part I and II sometimes I have a lot to write and think about...
To keep track of these lives we live is not just a means of enriching our understanding and possible improving our sermons but a truly sacred work. In these pages I tell secrets abut my parents, my children, myself because that is one way of keeping track and because I believe that it is not only more honest but also vastly more interesting than to pretend that I have no such secrets to tell...-Fredereck Buechner, excerpt from 'Listening to Your Life' Dec. 14.
I hope we are all staying in The Christmas Story this Holy Advent Season...
