While we were at the beach (which is covered in snow today), we went to the Maritime Museum in Astoria, OR. We just love that place and in the gift shop I found this photo of an Oregon Coast light house on the cliff covered in the fog and mist. So I bought a frame and here it is:
I also found a card that a local artist did of Tillamook Head Lighthouse (my very favorite light house along with the light house at Cape Hatteras, NC). I thought it was beautiful and while only a 5x7 card, I put it in a frame also:
This past Thursday we met up with Candace and Bob from Squash House Quilts and had lunch at Great Harvest Bread Co. They were giving out samples of Eggnog Bread and Candace and I got to talking about recipes using Eggnog. I was so glad she let me know they'd be in town (they live an hour to the east of us), CR and I really enjoy their company!! I sent her a couple of links to an Eggnog Pound Cake and Eggnog Cookies and she sent me a link to Eggnog Bread. So I baked up some eggnog bread and it was delish (I didn't frost mine). For dinner I made a baked potato soup. CR had a good day with all the yummy smells and then getting to eat it all as well. If you're interested in the Baked Potato Soup recipe - just let me know I'd love to share it. It's super easy to make too!!
So what are you up to this weekend?? It is really cold here so we are staying inside. I'm going to vacuum and mop and then bake a Cherry Almond and Gingerbread biscotti.
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
