Gosh where did the weekend and Monday disappear too? It seems that these days the time is just flying by in a flash. Must be as we get older the time seems to get shorter? I apologise for being a day late with this week's Christmas treats recipe. But here it is Irish Cream Double Chocolate Log. There are no rules really for making this chocolate log - You can use any type of Chocolate Chip Cookie and can even eliminate the Baileys if you wish and maybe add Kahlua or Frangelico. We love this dessert at anytime of the year but it is a MUST on our Chrismtas Day Dessert list. It would cause a riot if I didn't make it each year.
Part of the reason why the days are flying by for me is because I have been sewing up a storm getting ready for Christmas which I am told is just 74 sleeps away !
I have written down all of the things that I want to make as gifts and have split it up into weekly target lists. So far so good - I am actually ahead of my list and I feel so much more in control than I did at the same time last week. Thinking about how much you have to do can sometimes be overhelming but lists do help - try it......
I have also been in the garage doing a little painting.
I have owned this print for a long time and decided that the frame would suit my decor much better white so it is almost ready to be re-hung in it's new clothes - Just 1 more coat and a little sanding.
I bought this little gentlemans wardrobe at a local thrift shop - It was painted a lavender colour. It has been sanded and undercoated and ready for some more layers of white. It is destined to be a towel cupboard in my bathroom - I am so in love with it's little legs. Hopefully I can get it finished in the next week or two.
And this little shelf lives in my entrance hallway. It has just 1 more coat to go of it's new clothing and will be moved back into the house on the weekend.
I really have the painting bug lately which has been brought on by all of the great inspirational blogs out there of some very talented ladies who are re-purposing lots of things for their homes. It is much more satisfying to re-purpose something you already have or something that has been discarded by someone else.
I am thinking of calling Thursday's "Show me your Re-purposed Stuff" day....... Want to join in too?
