Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

Time for the annual Christmas Eve dinner place cards for my sweet friend Colleen.  This year she wanted something Santa inspired so I used SemiSweetMike’s mug cookie cutter to create this table setting.  Where there is hope and magic, there is wonder.  We could all use a little more wonder in this world.  Hope your day is merry and bright, where ever and whom ever you are.

Old Fashioned Christmas Cookies

My Mom would be happy- cookies made using her vintage cutters from the 1950’s.  I grew up with these shapes, this type of glaze, accompanied with jimmies and colored sugars.  It’s like going home.

Then there is the reason for the season.  Some straw in the manager and a very bright star.
