Smaller cookies, a couple of bites in the eating, were requested this year. Pondering what a bunch of small sized turkeys, baby turkeys if you will, would be called in the MMB world … I settled on gobble.lets or goblets for short. (okay, technically baby turkeys are called poult. But I didn’t want anything even remotely associated with pouting around my poultry…). Set in the colors of autumn (mixtures of Americolor egg yellow, orange, terra cotta, chocolate brown and wedgewood blue), I channeled random visions of Thanksgiving crafts over the years.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
This little guy was shape shifted from a maple leaf.
I was humbled to be a part of Operation Cookie Takeover this October. These cookies went out to an active duty Marine stationed abroad. In addition to active duty military, a big thank you goes out to all of our veterans; I can’t imagine what it must take. Much obliged to Melanie at Killer Zebras for the perfect thank you stencil and accompanying cookie cutter.
Halloween party animals. Hope they were “consumed” by desire to be in the Halloween holiday “spirit…”
The hubby and I are experiencing fall in New Hampshire for the first time. We hiked the Welch and Dickey Loop recently and experienced a beautiful combination of granite and autumn leaf views. Although there were pops of red and bright orange, the scene was this most amazing, gentle gradient of yellows with undertones of gold and brown. Almost ombre. My inspiration for the peaceful and pretty pumpkins. And on the drive home I spied this adirondack chair with a skull/jack o lantern face cut out of the back. You know that was meant to be a cookie. #cookieplatesfortheneighbors
One advantage of waiting so long to post this set is that it is hockey season again (we are in that sweet spot of sports where it is baseball, football, hockey, and basketball season all at once. Choice is a good thing, right?)
Anyway, back to hockey. … and word play.
We have been renovating a 30 year old house since we moved to New Hampshire this past spring. Many people will warn you about the costs and the timeline of renovations. “Many people” were correct, correct, and, oh yeah, CORRECT! But, at last, catching up on the cookie sets never posted….
I created this set last spring for one GLAD GRADuate. Thank you Lawdy that that part of schooling was done (although she is now working on her Masters…). Impressive.
