Walk around the Garden in mid December.

We've been having lots of rain and very unusual warm weather for December even for south Florida, it's been so hot.  On the few days that doesn't rain, you know it I'm out there playing in the garden. I leave all the tightening up for when the weather gets cool. But I'm not waiting anymore, lots of cleaning and prepping to do and for some strange reason I so enjoy doing it. 
What a surprise to find that I had tomatoes, in Dec?? What.  That's ok I'll take them.

Christmas went by way too fast this year. Is it me????

Had a very relaxing Christmas day, just hubby and I relaxing and yes of course eating. Christmas eve is when we get together for our traditional Cuban Noche Buena, it's a big dinner a la Cuban, talk about delicious  food. The kids in our family are growing way too fast. I think this is the last year our little one is going to believe in Santa. He had way too many questions about Santa, so cute.  

My father-in-law always said that the older we get the faster time seams to fly by. I think he was so right on that. Now to find a way to slow time, yeah right.

Setting up Christmas breakfast for my hubby.

I like to wish all my friends in blogland a Merry Christmas from our home to yours. In our Cuban family we celebrate Noche Buena too, it's Christmas eve dinner a la Cuban. This year it's at my sister Mayra's and I can't wait. 

 I got up early today and finished a few final little things. I had time to also set the tray and preps for Christmas breakfast. I want to do a little something special for my hubby this year.  Breakfast in bed or we can do the back porch, whatever he wants.  I had a lot of fun putting it together, so if my eggs are dry and I burn the bacon at least it'll look pretty.

Simple card and tag.

I created this little card and tag for my sister. She was looking for that final touch to a housewarming gift basket that she had made. I was fortunate to have received one of her "baskets" last year for Christmas. She's the best at putting them together, she collects all kinds of goodies and the presentation, OMG. I always say I want to have little touches like these ready to go, but I never make extras. What kind of crafter am I, never prepare.

Playing with some Balsa little boxes.

I altered these little Balsa boxes as Christmas gifts. I used stamps, napkins with pretty prints and lots and lots of texture paste. I filled them up with beads, charms and lots of goodies to play with. I had picked up these, like 2" long little plastic heels from a party supply store. Who wouldn't  t like a Christmas tree in high heels.
